Master Bay Rum Aftershave is one of the bay rums in the sampler set that I received that stands apart from the others. It goes on cool, cooler than many of the others that I tried. But the cool quickly fades to a slight warming sensation. The scent also has a warming sensation. For those that don’t care for the kick in the face after a shave, Master is for you.
As for the scent, it’s seems to have a darker sensation in the nose, reminding me of cinnamon and maybe a Christmas bouquet, with a little bit of honey in the mix. But the ingredients list include primarily alcohol and bay rum oil. It also has a powdery feeling to the scent, and it’s quite nice. The initial sharper tones of the scent fade quickly to a soft aroma that is sweeter and exceptionally pleasant.
Master bay rum also contains glycerin, and has left my face feeling great to the touch. Silky smooth, with every touch re-awakening the scent around my head. This is an excellent bay rum and it’s quite understandable why so many people love it.
