in my opinion this was a very mild aftershave. perhaps i wasn't applying enough. it does have a nice scent though. for the price i think this is a good product and a good size container. i didn't notice any alcohol sting (and that's also on a cut i had) so if that is important to you this isn't for you. it comes in an attractive bottle but as another reviewer said, the sticker was already coming off when i got it. in fact it looks like it is in the pic above too. not a big deal to me. 4 stars because it's very good but too mild for me.
