This splash is truly alluring. As the scent profile states; think Toscano cigar (but not an ash tray). With my eyes closed, I'm transcended back to a Villa I once stayed at in the Med. Me, my brother and my farther smoking cigars and drinking a fine cognac on a cool evening. I have also lent this splash to a few of my wet shaving buddies, and even though they both do not smoke. They absolutely adore this scent. For me the soap (croap) and this splash make for an amazing shave! If you have read this far, don't think about it, just buy one. You will not be disappointed.
