    My husband has been using British Sterling Aftershave since we met, and we've been married 32 years. It used to be available in many places. And then it started to be carried only at Christmas...and now we haven't been able to find it for several years...

    He tried others that he didn't like as well (and he just didn't smell the way I love him to). So when I found it at Drugstore.com, we were thrilled. I ordered 4. And I'll order more when he runs out. Thank you for carrying it our favorite aftershave!

    British Sterling came on the scene in the 1970's when it hit the drug store chains. It was priced higher than many of the established after-shaves and often had it's own place on the shelf with other "high tone" after-shaves.

    The name, bottle, graphics, and pricing perhaps added as much as anything to the mystique placement of British Sterling. It is not difficult to imagine that the popularity of James Bond and other British sensations of the day added to the perceived coolness and value of the product.

    It has a unique clean fragrance. Perhaps a little sweeter than other products of it's day, but certainly cleaner and less fruity than the foo foo products of today.

    British Sterling is no longer priced high enough to seem extravegant and is a worthy addition to the man's personal items.

    Formulation changed?

    By David D

    from Carrollton TX

    Pros

    • Easy To Use
    • Effective
    • Good Value

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Daily Use
      • Men

      Comments about Dana British Sterling After Shave, 3.8 fl oz:

      The formulation seems to have changed since the last time I bought it (7 months ago - 3/2/2014). It has more of a floral smell. It seems incredible that anyone would change the aroma of a fragrance product! I've been using this since 1975, but I guess I'll have to start looking for something else.

        I am 64 and I have been using this product since I was 14. Good clean scent and has remained consistent for 50 years. Blends well with my body chemistry so I am told. Many frequently compliments.

        I can only rate this product based on how it works with my skin. Unfortunately, as much as I wanted to love this AS, it just smelled bad on me. I know it works for others, so if you're one of those lucky ones, then definitely try it out.

        I bought this in the 80's when it was popular. I think the bottle I received was one of the original bottles from the early 80's because it stinks!

              I had forgotten about this stuff until I found it at this website. Bought some on a lark and find it to be what I remembered from the old days. Nice familiar fragrance and it actually come in a glass bottle. These days that in itself is a rare treat. It will never replace my Clubman Bay Rum addiction but its good stuff.

              The fragrance oils are made in the USA, but it is packaged in China.

                Use it after a workout, shower and shave at the gym. Get asked all the time about what I'm using as an after shave. Some products are timeless. This is one.

                My dad has used this for as long as I can remember. It's always my "go to gift" when I can't think of anything to buy him for holidays. Well my local [@] have stopped carrying this item. I love to shop from Drugstore.com and have for years and by chance I decided to search for the aftershave on this site. YAY!!! I have found it again! Please keep it in stock!
