Wiener Schurken - Strawanza

Company: Wiener Schurken
Product: Strawanza

A few weeks ago on Instagram, I was contacted by Roman the owner of Wiener Schurken from Austria. The company name in English translates to Viennese Villains. He reached out to me regarding his product Strawanza a masculine fragrance that was released not to long ago. He was looking for me to do a review and asked if I would be interested. After we spoke awhile and he filled me in on his company I agreed and waited for the product to arrive. After a few weeks, I started to wonder if he ever sent me anything and had kind of forgotten about it. Then he contacted me again, asking if his package had arrived. I told him, no, and after some investigative work on Romans part, he found out it was due to customs that it was being held up but after another week the package was delivered and I was more than ready to do the review.

Autumn - Wet The Face Release

Company: Wet The Face
Product: Autumn

For me, one of the best times of the year is Autumn with its trees all turning colors a fantastic showcase of what the best mother nature has to offer and where I live not too far away is Cold Spring Harbor. People used to come from all over with empty water jugs for the free natural spring water provided by the town.

The way into town is Harbor Road its winding road that cuts right through the forest with beautiful homes to the left and right with one of the most scenic natural lakes surrounded by a forest of tall Pines, Maples, and trees of every size and shape. It’s here that I always visit during Autumn and its what I thought about when creating my new shaving soap release.

Land Ho! - Captains Choice

Company: Captain's Choice
Products: Land Ho! / Cuban Tobacco

Last week an unexpected package arrived at my door. I’ve been getting more of these lately almost like things are starting to get back to normal getting packages for reviews. One of them was from Captain's Choice. Scott has released a new set of Aftershave, Shave Balm, Shaving Cream, and Shaving Soap called Land Ho! and man it's a winner.

I only received the aftershave and when I open the bottle I connected with the scent right away. Like I've said in the past the Captain doesn't' actually like to spell out the notes list to the scents he likes to get the feedback from the users and let them make the list but I'm getting confusing messages from the website. The shaving soap says citrus upon a background of lavender while the description for the aftershave says a classic Fougere scent with customer feedback suggesting citrus clean, fresh, tropical edge with tobacco leaf to grapefruit. I personally agree with the tobacco leaf profile. I found this aftershave pairs well with my Cuban Tobacco so that’s what I used for this shave.
