This is a very nice, high quality old-fashioned Bay Rum, not like some that are overpowered by spices or sweet perfume aromas that shouldn't be there. Typical British quality that I've found in other Taylor products. Pricey, but as you don't need to use much, more than worth it.
Long lasting but faint
This is a subtle scent. The aftershave bomb is gone within minutes. But hours later if you run you finger along your face, the scent is there. It is pure bay rum without the strong clove smell. Pleasant and elegant-- erik satie not wagner.
TOBS Bay Rum
Not what i hoped for. Scent is good but very faint and lasts only minutes. Overall burn and moisturizing characteristics are slightly above average. Performance compared to cost: barely makes a 3 star rating
