Splash on a dash of bay rum aftershave
Invented by sailors in the 16th century to supposedly mask the stench of being at sea for months at a time, bay rum contains potent variations of bay leaf, spices and rum and to this day remains the scent of choice for gents around the globe.
For the uninitiated, bay rum is a common ingredient found in aftershave lotion and shaving soaps thanks to unique scent and its ability to cool, soothe and invigorate the skin. Gracing barbershop shelves and bathroom cabinets for generations, bay rum’s distinctive woody, sweet, and spicy fragrance can also be used as a general astringent and is even rumoured to arouse the attractions of ladies with a nose for manly men.
The Pomade Shop has an entire section dedicated to bay rum that offers Suavecito Shave Creme, Lucky Tiger Bay Rum and Layrite Aftershave among its inventory. While you’re there, grab yourself a tin of King Brown Pomade and really get hearts racing.
