    Kevin, these guys have a range of Pinaud Clubman including a Bay Rum.
    Not a big range, but we Aussies must be thankful that someone is selling it here (Melbourne)

    I found a bottle of the Wahl Bay Rum in a local barber shop a couple of years back.
    I quite like it and so does the missus.
    'tis hard to beat the Clubman though.

    Both Bay Rums I ordered arrived.

    The first to arrive was the Col.Conk Bay Rum Aftershave. It came in a strange shaped bottle and looked very red. Now remember I have no experience of what Bay Rum is supposed to smell like. I finished my shave and applied the splash and wow what a great smell. It a tough one to describe, it goes on quite strong but settles to a lovely but long lasting warm spicy smell. My wife really approved.

    I have to say I really like Col.Conks Bay Rum.

    The next to arrive was the Pinaud Clubman. It came in a large cheap plastic bottle, but its very good value and holds a whopping 355mls. The Pinaud Clubman Virgin Island Bay Rum was very different, a real hit of cloves more than anything on application but again it settles to a warm spicy aroma which is very pleasant. Its not as long lasting as the Col.Conk but it hangs around long enough to keep a smile on my face.

    I have to say I like both of these Bay Rums for different reasons. They are different but I can understand why they both are called bay rum. I would struggle to say which one I like more. If I had to make a decision I would say the the Col. Conk was more for evening wear as its heavier in smell and the Pinaud is much more cooling and lighter so a good choice for day wear.


    Im going to enjoy both

    This is good to know Kevin !! I must get some Clubman soon....
    As far as I know, the Col. Conk bottles are based on the antique "Stetson Brand" aftershave bottles. I like 'em.

    That makes sense now. They really are interesting bottles. Sure stands out amongst the crowd of other splashes in the bathroom.
