    Default Name your weird scent combo that works- PIF to the most creative!

    Mine is named Kuba Deluxe Shave (after the Acid Cigar for those of you who don't know).

    Recipe-
    Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandlewood Cream
    Brut Aftershave Splash
    Paco Rabanne 1 Million cologne

    When I buy a cologne I tend to use it day after day to really figure it out. Today I was doing my classic (or old man depending on how you look at it) scent shave using TOBS Sandlewood and Brut AS but when I added the Paco Rabanne and stepped outside to walk my dog... WHOA! I was literally looking around for someone smoking an Acid cigar. Then I started sniffing myself like a madman to confirm that it was actually me. I never would have guessed it but the combination of the woody earthy TOBS sent, mixed with the musky, powdery brut and the floral musky cologne combined to make a remarkable imitation of one of my favorite cigars. I love it and will be trying it again soon!

    So what is a strange combination of scents that has worked for you or pleasantly surprised you? Give it a name and let's see who has the most interesting one! I am considering sending a PIF of all the ingredients of my Kuba Deluxe shave to the person who comes up with the best combo but I don't want anything lame like Proraso+Tabac= a menthol cigarette!

    One of my new favorite combos reminds me of the cherry sour candies I always loved as a kid.

    Vitos Extra Coco + Thayer's Aloe (slightly bitter scent to me...) + Alt-Innsbruck... bonus points if you finish with a little r.160 balm.

    I haven't done it in a couple of years,
    but I used to get great results by
    SuperLathering Musgo Real and MWF.

    Either of these by itself has a very mild, almost bland scent,
    but added together they create something pleasant and very unique.

    And wow, what a shave!
    You getTallow, and a double-dose of Lanolin to boot!

    I never thought about giving it a name,
    so Musgo Fat will have to do.
    Sounds kinda like a character out of Star Wars,
    or maybe its that famous Pool Hustler's brother.

    Or, it could be called Mitchell Real,
    which sounds like he could be an English-Portuguese porn star.

    Don't know if this is weird enough to count, but I will share

    Col. Conk Bay Rum soap super-lathered with Shultons Original OS cream. Lovely combination of old-school manly smells.
