    If you're looking for the aftershave then listen to wpfontenot and check out Glen's extensive bay rum thread. I've only used the Royall brand and I love it -- more importantly, the wife likes it.

    If you're looking for bay rum scented creams and soaps then someone else might have to offer suggestions. I had a sample of The Gentlemen's Quarter bay rum scream and it was great. I look now and see she has a bay rum w/ sweet orange and while I don't think my sample had orange, I'm sure it's quality stuff.

    There are so many to choose from, Glen's post is the place to start.

    Personally, I haven't tried many, but I do like Clubman's and Lucky Tiger. They're cheap, but they're nice. The LT scent lasts about 10 minutes, though, which could be good or bad depending on your preference. I like the option of putting on cologne without having to match the scents, so that's a plus for me.

    As stated by others, Glen's descriptions of several different brands is the place to start. As for my own opinion, I've tried Ogallala amd Clubman. I like both, though they're very different. The Clubman is sweeter and seems to have a higher alcohol content to me. Ogallala is more subtle and somehow seems classier. You can get a sampler from them for a buck. Clubman is inexpensive and readilly available, so I'd recommend trying both.

    I recently bought some of Olivia's bay rum shaving cream. Review is here:

    It is also available as a soap.
