So I got my first bottle of Clubman yesterday (talc too!). I've read time and again about how strong and cloying it can be when overused, and I know everyone's different when it comes to scents, but I have to say that the stuff is strong. I wet my fingertip with a drop and moisten my wrist just a touch and this "after shave" (?!) projects something fierce!
I'm usually not the type to wear colognes heavily. With atomizers I do one spray, with splashes I put a little on my neck (all sides) and collar. But what does Clubman usually call for? A little dab or two?
And is it because of the plastic bottle that it smells ENTIRELY different (closer to Brut) when you open it as opposed to on the skin?
Love the stuff though. Timeless. It won't displace my Mr. Taylor/Speick/Sandalwood normal rotation, but I think there'll be some days that just cry out for nostalgia. My grandfather wore this and Old Spice.
