Nice review. I've tried all of these, and, really, they're all pretty nice for the price. Well, technically, I haven't worn Brut since the early 80's, when I was in high school. Because of those adolescent associations, I just can't bring myself to use it as an adult--it would feel like bringing a Trapper Keeper to work. But that's just me.
My Dad wore OS, and now it has a permanent place in my rotation. Still feels like a man's aftershave to me.
And Deacon Frank... thanks for the tip on the Cool Wave. Perhaps SWMBO might prefer that to Aqua Velva, which she says "smells like old people".
