    Default Bay Rum Recommendation in Australia

    I'm considering buying a bay rum soap and aftershave splash.

    Which would you recommend to buy here in Australia?

    I haven't smelled Bay rum yet, but so many rave about it so I thought I wold give it a try. I have seen TOBS and Lucky Tiger and Col Conk, but thats it so far.

    The American gents on here seem to like Pinaud Clubman etc, but alas It seems we can't get aftershaves from the US because of shipping regulations.

    I do like combining soaps and splashes when I can, but its not essential.

    Well see if you can't hunt yourself up an Ogallala sample pack for a start. You'll get to try about five different scents. My preference (and more importantly, the wife's) was Sandalwood Bay rum. You won't get Pinaud that I have found so far, and if you do, it will be vastly over-priced due to said shipping cost.

    I got my original samples from Sam over at Shop Luxury Shaving and Men's Accessories | Shave-Shack Australia, but it doesn't look like he stocks it anymore. So since that is the case, why not put your order through this one Genuine Ogallala Bay Rum Bonanza! 1 two-ounce bottle each of by Ogallala Bay Rum - Shop Online for Beauty in Australia. This is the sample pack I mentioned, and it mentions "free shipping Australia wide".
    Then there is this one for something different http://www.myshopping.com.au/ZM--122...shave_WWBR1000. Hope that helps mate.

    There was some talk of it here Australian Shaving Supplies. And as I said there, I like it, but it is just your basic bay rum. I still haven't bought any yet, but I really must now that you've reminded me of it. Maybe I should get some and let you know. Then you can just come down with bottle in hand and nick some for yourself .

    Might be a good idea Mick, I just spent some hard earned on some Tabac soap and EDC. Bay Rums going to have to wait a week or two
