This aftershave splash from Proraso is my favourite splash of all. It’s certainly one I can recommend strongly for either old or new wetshavers, and seems to be a staple of many wetshavers and is always on the list when people are looking for good aftershave recommendations.
The scent of Proraso aftershave is a really nice classic Italian Barbershop scent. It’s hard to describe, kind of like a minty, citrus scent with a tiny bit of powder and a hint of menthol. The scent isn’t that strong and fades fairly quickly and I don’t think anyone could find this scent offensive
I love the post shave feel you get from the Proraso splash, it does a great job of easing any irritation or razor burn and the menthol cooling it gives is very nice. It’s not a massive face freezer like Osage Rub for example, but I find it more cooling that most and just about the right level for me. For an alcohol based splash I find this is very moisturising and leaves the skin feeling soft and hydrated and there isn’t much of an alcohol burn unless you have really overdone your shave, but this is to be expected.
This is my favourite splash of all, so much so I have the 400ml bottle on standby for when my first bottle runs out soon. Definitely a 10/10, and one I wouldn’t be without.
