I know a lot of people love Alt-Innsbruck, Flöid Blue, and the DR Harris line and such products are generally discussed a fair amount. But what are some of the other aftershaves that hail from Europe that are on people's lists of things to try?

Here's mine:

Pitralon (any/all)
Lea Classic
Irisch Moos
Myrsol Blue
Myrsol Plastic
Acca Kappa White Moss
Penhaligons English Fern (I really wish they made an aftershave for Ostara. Yes I know it's not technically a men's fragrance; I don't care. It's beautiful.)

What are yours?

Will, I am glad you wrote that.  There are so many colognes and EdTs that are marketed just to the ladies or just to the men when they could easily be worn by both.  Thankfully, some great scents (at least to me) are finally being called unisex.  Annick Goutal's Eau du Sud and Hermès Concentré d'Orange Verte come to mind.  I even enjoy Crabtree & Evelyn's Nantucket Briar EdT.  It is sold as a woman's fragrance and I can see that but there is a hint of rose in the scent that goes nicely after I have a rose scented shave with either Prairie Creations Rose Douceur de Cando shave soap or Geo. F. Trumper Rose shaving cream.  What I find interesting is that a rose shaving soap or cream is openly marketed to men but not an aftershave/cologne/EdT that might have a hint of rose in it, perhaps along with other complementary notes.

Interesting topic today, matches my SOTD... I've tried some European aftershaves 40-50 or so Big Grin
There were some that I loved for the scent, like vintage Weleda, that I only have a bottle left or Ralon. Some for performance, like Speick, but not my kinda scent.
If you really want to try something different, as I am sure it will give you an idea for your next scent, try some old school Russian colognes/aftershaves.
Тройной, Саша, Шипр, Гвоздика, Консул, Дипломат, Русский Лес.

I'm actually wearing one of Vero Kern's fragrances, which is ostensibly meant for women, for today's review. It's called Kiki Voile d`Extrait. Interesting stuff. It's what Angel would be if Angel didn't suck. Big Grin

Floid Blue is the last aftershave you'll really ever need. I just don't use it all that often because I like to feel special when I wear it.

Well ... I'm about to find out. Just placed an order with Garry for samples of everything on my list except for LEA and Myrsol Plastic.

Besides some of those mentioned, I've been intrigued by the Alpa aftershaves and EdC's that Shoebox Shaveshop carries. Especially the fougere, but really they all sound at least somewhat interesting. They're made in the Czech Republic, I think.
