    I'm not a cologne guy at all, but after a close shave with my trusty DE razor, I like a brisk slap on the face with some aftershave.
    My choices are pretty simple: Dominica Bay Rum and Clubman. Must be because that's what my grandpa's used. Still smells nice and goes away rather than reeking like a perfume counter for 12 hours.
    What do you guys use?

    I wear brut when we go out just to annoy the wife
    someone always asks is that brut
    I just wink and nod
    drives her insane she says-- I secretly suspect she likes it

    I like to liberally apply some of this after a nice shave:

    Use to use aftershave but the alcohol in it makes my skin break out now. I just use unscented Aveeno moisturizing cream.

    Nay.

    As far as cologne, I don't do that either.

    Cologne is frowned upon in a business environment.

    I like to keep the clean smell of shampoo and body wash.

    I wish Revlon still made Flex Shampoo and conditioner, that shit was awesome.

    At the shelter we often use pine tree air fresheners.

    Yep, cologne/aftershave is a big no no at work. I use Witch hazel with aloe only during the summer months. I break out if I don't, and it's unscented.

    Never. Not when I used blades, and not now that I've evolved to electric.

    No to aftershave. Unscented deodorant and a bit of cologne. So little cologne that you have to be within an inch of me to smell it. The people who get within that inch say I smell great.

    I use a DE razor and absolutely love AOS aftershaves. The lavender is good but the sandlewood is the best ever. No alcohol and it is super soothing. The only downside is it's a little on the expensive side. But well, well worth it.

    No really never seen a need to. Most have such a strong odor and I'm not into cologne either. My wife likes the axe spray so I do that a tiny tiny amount and deodorant and I'm good to go.
