    I totally agree
    I was tryin' to figure out which is worse,ignorance or apathy...Then I realized I don't know and I don't care...

    Like Myrsol Lemon. I love it. But I donít want to smell like a lemon ALL day.

    Many of mine can be too strong to use before work, like Floid, Tabac, & Pinaud Clubman, (depending on how much you use, and I use lots). This doesn't usually apply to me though, because I normally shave at night. I use cologne during the day. Sometimes I can still smell the aftershave in the morning!

    When I apply an AS, I usually let it sit in my hand for a few seconds to let the alcohol evaporate before putting it on my face. I suspect you would not do that with a cologne.

    As a result of this technique, I have not found an AS that was overwhelmingly scented and it has the effect of reducing post shave burn.
    I have always thought that the point of an aftershave was the alcohol and to let it evaporated would loose those properties.

    I usually shave in the morning and work in a scent free place so I usually don't use a scented product. Or if it disappears quickly good.

    My wife one time commented on why I wanted such a big bottle of aftershave. "It should last for years." But then I showed her I splashed it on!
