    I apologize for bumping this to the top with nothing to add, I am reading this thread and am afraid of losing it on my phone when i need to find it easily.

    My journey began like many of you...buying the P&G plastic bottle and working my way from there. I currently am bidding on the bay for vintage bottles to compare the scents. Looking forward to joining the Shulton Old Spice club!

    So how do you like it and how does it compare to Special Reserve? I'm not even sure why there's a debate about Special Reserve. I think it's great although it took me a few applications to fully appreciate it. I think those who aren't crazy about it don't like stronger scents with longevity.

    I'm having a bit more of a struggle with Lilac Vegetal. Thoe first few sniffs of the fingers in the first hour are a little problematic, but once it dries down, it's a nice, pleasant scent. I think most older barber shops smell more like The Veg than they do original Clubman.

    If there's any writing on the back of the bottle of Burley, would you be so kind as to post a photo of that, too? Would it be so difficult for Proctor & Gamble to take a look at the formula and issue it as a novelty item in a glass bottle during the holidays? There's no imagination in that company. They won't even distribute the India OS Musk or Lime here. If they advertised a holiday gift box sold through their website of all these aftershaves, once word got around there would be a pretty nice sized advance order.

    I should add that this doesn't smell like special reserve, it's just that type of scent. It's in the same vein as SR, Avon Oland, and English Leather.

    I don't care for SR myself. There's just some note in it that attacks my nose. But diluted down when mixed up in Bootleggers El Dorado, it's fantastic.

    I still have to read through the 20 pages, but OP's hard work completely astonishes and amazes me!
