It doesn't hold well either.
I won't buy it again.

      Comments about Pinaud Virgin Island Bay Rum, 6 fl oz:

      As others have mentioned, this isn't what I would consider a "true" bay rum (C.A. Antilles Bay Rum is my go-to aftershave for an authentic bay rum). This is more of a cinnamon/clove scent, so I deducted a star for that. Otherwise, however, this is a GREAT aftershave. This is not a cologne; it is meant to be splashed on, which is why the scent fades so quickly. Aftershave should draw people in, not chase them off with a cloying stench. When my girl comes in close she always remarks how good I smell after using this aftershave, and then she comes in closer. Got it? That's what aftershave is supposed to do (in addition to toning the skin and soothing razor irritation, also a strong-point of this aftershave).

        Comments about Pinaud Virgin Island Bay Rum, 6 fl oz:

        My father used to wear this stff, it's been around like...forever. I've always found the clean, fresh scent very attractive. As a experimenter with synthetic pheromones lately, I thought I'd try it as a compliment to some of the unscented pheromone oils out there (the pheromone scents can be WAY overpowering.) While it did NOT work all that well for my intended purpose it still smells great as a stand-alone. The alcohol base makes it painful for after-shave applications so I wouldn't recommend it for that. It fades quickly and smells SO good that the tendency is to put apply too much. Bottom line: I highly recommend this stuff!

        • No bay

        Comments about Pinaud Virgin Island Bay Rum, 6 fl oz:

        I picked this up for an aftershave after reading so much great stuff about it and other clubman products. I am very disappointed. It isn't the worst in terms of using on the skin after a shave, where it disappoints the most is in the smell and longevity of the product. Given that is labeled as a bay rum, one would expect both bay and rum to make an appearance. However, they don't, at all. This is nothing but clove. Clove isn't bad, and it is in lots of other bay rums, however when it is the only thing that makes an appearance it isn't great. It also doesn't last long at all. I am lucky to get an hour out of this product before you can't tell that it was there at all. I don't mind a light scent for an aftershave, it shouldn't be overpowering, but I would like to have something that lasts through the better part of the work day, not about an hour. I will not be buying this one again, and I'm really glad it was on sale.

          Comments about Pinaud Virgin Island Bay Rum, 6 fl oz:

          I'll stand by my earlier review about the overwhelming clove presence of this aftershave. I will say that I have since tried it mixed with Clubman Original and Clubman Classic Vanilla aftershaves. Mixing the Bay Rum with either of these two other Clubman aftershaves makes for a more pleasant experience, and in fact it's quite nice with the Clubman Classic Vanilla. This makes the clove notes more interesting and less "one note". Just know that mixing the Bay Rum aftershave with other scents is the ONLY way I will ever use this product. It will never again find it's way onto my face by itself and I still cannot recommend this product by itself.

            Comments about Pinaud Virgin Island Bay Rum, 6 fl oz:

            This fragrance is clove and only clove. I'm a professional chef and can pick out and identify aromas quite well. Let me tell you that this aftershave is a one note song. There is no cinnamon, spice, leather, earthiness, woodiness, or musk in this fragrance. There is no citrus, floral, medicinal, coconut, RUM, or anything exotic at all. There is only clove, and alot of it. This might be a good aftershave for a cold winter night in front of the fire but it would be totally out of place any other time of year. It is a familiar scent and not necessarily offensive but it is very strong and one dimensional. Also reminds me of something an older man would wear. Not for young bucks no matter how much you think you love "classic" or "vintage".
