PAA's 9, Tombstone & DE 89:

This has the same scent as Hoppe's #9 gun cleaner with gun powder added and since I don't have the matching aftershave just yet, I paired it with their Tombstone aftershave which has a pipe tobacco, rose water, leather and gun powder scent to it and it's awesome as well:


In terms post shave feel I have a 2 pass "ice rink" type of shave. In the past the Feather DE blades use to eat me up in this specific razor, but that was well over 2 years ago now and my beard has gotten a lot tougher. I've got to get these 2 scents in a complete matching set.
