    Default Aftershave and EDT should have to match?

    Dear friends,

    i have an oily and sensitive skin. Thats why i m looking to use products with less alcohol and so on...

    Now im using la roche products as after shave but sometimes i get bored since they are not traditioanal and not designed for men.

    i use terr d'hermes as edt exclusvely but emulsion or after shave is very pricey here.

    My question is in my situation, i shave at 6.15 am apply aftershave and when i came work i use terre dhermes around 8.15, di aftershave and edt odour match? Or aftershave will be disappearing in 2 hours and also low sillage? My question is for as splashs and balms.

    Thank you

    Sometimes that's a tough one since you don't want to smell like the cologne counter at Macy's. One of the ones I use when I don't plan on using a similar EDT is Captain's Choice Lime. The scent blows off of my skin in a matter of minutes and won't interfere with anything else I use. Sometimes Bay Rum can be used that way too since it doesn't linger too long. But Bay Rum will hang around a little longer than the lime did (30-60 min). Another one to try is Myrsol Formula 9 or Agua Balsamica. Formula 9 is a minty menthol splash that too doesn't really hang around very long and the other is an herbal splash that fades quickly as well. As for balms, I always use Em's balm in the unscented version (shaveplace.com). Its the best balm I've found and I've tried most of them. And, of course, it has no scent to interfere with anything.

    The other solution is find two scents that compliment each other. I guess you need trial and error to find that unless someone has already done the legwork for you.
