First off, LOVE the scent. What is it that is different than other bay Rums? Well, my unskilled nose can't pick it up, but I know I love it. My skin is left feeling very smooth, moisturized and conditioned. I will say this...I have spent a good deal of money on Bay Rum, and I can’t wait to spend more on Captain’s Choice bay rum. Great job!
You did an amazing job getting the spice right. The scent - a nice bay rum, citrus and I get a subtle hint of pepper or something spicier? Used it after a two pass straight shave this morning, a good "zing" on the skin, not a lot of "hot" burn, very comfortable, very smooth feeling, sweet spot for me in texture category. Wifey thought it smelled very good (she is a bay rum fan), she could tell the difference between this and others. I like the lack of clove-y-ness, too much clove in other bay rums kinda kills it for me. Overall, great product!
Captain’s Choice is top notch in terms of scent. Lots of bay, a little bit of rich spice, great balance. It wears wonderfully once it's out of the bottle. I prefer the scent, actually, to just about any other bay rum I've tried. This one smells rich and vibrant. Good juice. Moisturizing. Doesn't leave your skin tacky, but soothes your skin just enough.
So, after using the Captain’s Choice for a couple of days here are my thoughts on it. The smell out of the bottle is a beautiful warm scent with a little cinnamon. On the skin this product is great, it opens up with cinnamon and rum - truly one of the better bay rums I've used. There wasn't much of a burn just more of a feeling of warmth which I like. It dried very quickly and left my face soft, smooth and without any tackiness. Definitely a great product.
Yours is the ONLY aftershave my wife has ever liked on me. This is a BIG plus. I love the scent, too. Much less sweet than Bigelow's. Could last just a tad longer, but it does last. And lastly, seems to be every bit as moisturizing, to me, like an A/S balm.
I love it... I also NEED some more really soon.
Got good reviews from my wife. She actually commented again this morning, “That Captain’s Choice smells really nice, that guy did a good job". You get that kind of comment from my wife, it must be good.
The smell has spice, citrus, vanilla, rum not necessarily in that order. The burn can go either way for me. I was always taught if it burns, that means its working, but after a close shave a little zing is just right. It lasts just enough, and doesn't waft around all foofy. My wife loved it and said Captain’s Choice was her favorite. She said that I smelled good enough to eat!
First of all, this is a great product. It feels good going on, not like scented water. Your aftershave has some real substance to it.
It left my face feeling smooth and warm. Well, that's my two cents. Nice spicy bay rum!
I like it! Finally a bay rum that's a lot fuller than the others I've tried. Rather than just a light bay scent like most others, Captain’s Choice has a rich, clean scent that lingers a little while longer than the others I've tried. You've got a fine product there, a very nice aftershave indeed.
My thoughts on the Captain’s Choice aftershave: I love the scent, most bay rum scents I'm not too keen on, but this one was wonderful. When applied after a shave, the burn is quick and relatively minor and a few minutes after, the overall face feel is great! Both smooth and all signs of irritation dissipate. The scent lasted for a couple hours for me.
The only thing I have to say about Captain’s Choice is that I really, really enjoyed the scent in the bottle and even more so once I applied it. My wife liked it too and there's only a few scents she typically likes on me. I do like the moisturizing effect that it has.
I got my Captain’s Choice today - just as I expected, it is pure awesome-ness! Very pleased, and although I have no basis to reference the scent, I do like it a lot. Spicy scent, clean finish, and somewhat lingering. It felt great on my face!
I've used a number of Bay Rums since trying Captain’s Choice and I can say that none of them were as nice. I'm not just saying that either. I was a firm believer that nothing could hold a candle to my others, but I was surprised after giving this a try.
I poured it into my hand, rubbed my hands together and it felt smooth and light. I smelled my hands and the "wow" hit me. I poured more into my hand, rubbed my hands together and rubbed it around my face and head (I shave my head). It felt great. Very clean, light, not tacky, very smooth and didn't dry up before I had a chance to work it around. Good sting, awesome smell that lasts as long as an aftershave should and doesn't dry your skin. My skin feels very smooth, clean and hydrated.
My girlfriend loves Captain’s Choice - amazing scent and performance. I can't believe you knocked my favorite bay rum off the shelf. Six hours later and I can still slightly smell it so longevity is better than many - nice! I just placed an order for more.
The Captains Choice is one of my all time favorites! It's my wife's favorite too! Every time I put it on she says and I quote, "Mmm, you smell nice! Is that the Captain’s Choice? I like that one!” Works everytime!
