Cologne Russe Aftershave
We blend lemon, bergamot, petitgrain, and herbs with violet, rose, bay, and amber to produce a rich, beautifully fresh scent derived from the colognes of old. The scent is distinctly warmer than most other cologne-type fragrances, owing largely to its inclusion of castoreum, benzoin, and vanilla. Clean and elegant without the aloofness of some other scents, Cologne Russe is the perfect way to brighten your morning.

- masterpiece duo
Hello leather, there you are!
I purchased both the soap and the aftershave of this gorgeous scent and, let me tell you, they really must be experienced together. The soap starts the scent journey and the aftershave finishes it off by filling in the gaps. While the scents of the soap and aftershave are clearly the same, the leathery accords of amber and castoreum are much more prevalent in the aftershave. It's like layering the basenotes of a fragrance with the top notes separately. The soap has all of the top notes and the aftershave rounds it out with the basenotes. If, like me, you love "Cuir de Russie" type fragrances, you will not be disappointed with this masterpiece duo! Citrus, Violet, and Leather! One of the best shaving scents in my opinion! I can't imagine anyone disliking this!
Obviously a great product as far as its quality and uniqueness...I've had it only a short time and have to confess it is still growing on me....very complex...it is a very powerful fragrance that I would not use as a "splash"....more like a cologne.....I would recommend trying to get a sample before purchasing....
Russe and Seville aftershave
The scents are great/the same as before, but I was bummed to learn you got rid of the kyovu line. I really preferred the feel of those.
This is a must buy. You can thank me later
Outstanding aftershave. Very clean, crisp scent
