What are your favorites? I have B&M Seville and it smells exactly like the soap and has good longevity.

Gingers Garden is the only one ive tried. Great scent stength and longevity. Most artisans are trying to fulfill all grooming needs with various products like soap, shampoo, lotion etc. Don't be surprised if someone makes a toothpaste

im using Razorock soaps only and plenty happy with them. They are cheap, perform great, amazing scents.... that's why I never bought any other brand, I'm sort of glad the very first soap I bought was from RR

I'm not talking about soaps I am talking about EdTs. Not soap or aftershaves. It seems like a lot of artisans are venturing into this area.

What is the difference between an EdT and aftershave?
To be vintage it must be older than me!
The last razor I bought was the next to last razor I will ever buy!

Concentration of scent. Also aftershaves typically have some skin nourishing ingredients whereas an EdT or other cologne is just alcohol and fragrance.

I have several more but some of my favorites include -

Dr. Jon's 13

Chatillon Lux Gratiot League Square
Chatillon Lux Rose Santal
La Forêt de Liguest

Barrister & Mann Le Grand Chypre

Storybook Soapworks Shaken

All of these have great longevity on me and are very close, if not identical, to the soap/splash (Shaken is the only one I don't have a soap or splash to compare to).

Chiseled Face Ghost Town Barber smells great but fades away within four hours, unfortunately.

The Ginger’s Garden cologne spray Spice Grenade is fabulous.

I also love Barrister and Mann’s 42 and Night Music EdTs.
Whenever I go to shave, I assume there’s someone else on the planet shaving, so I say “I’m gonna go shave, too.”

I haven't tried any of the shave artisan EdT's yet, but I am surprised at the price points that some of them are coming out at. I remember the St Charles Shave fragrances being well priced and then the Razorock line came out at a low cost, but some of these offerings from B&M and Catie's Bubbles are really spendy. I know that those guys in particular are really good with their fragrances and are using high-quality stuff, but just to throw out one example the Romance in Middlesex County spray from B&M is $32 for a 7.5mm vial. That's more expensive by volume than most high-end fragrance houses.
This is not meant as a criticism, but for me personally its hard to pay those kind of prices. So I will just have to watch in envy as y'all get to enjoy the good stuff :-)
