Alright I saved Ogallala’s Double Strength Bay Rum Cologne to be my last Ogallala bay rum to try. A few days ago I fell completely in love with Ogallala’s Sandalwood offering, so this had some big shoes to fill. But it did not disappoint.
Every Ogallala product I have tried goes on smooth and somewhat warm. And each one lets you know about your rough shaving spots in a sultry kind of way. Like the way Barry White’s voice hits your ear. Well the double strength is not that sultry. It’s got a good deal of bite to it. I would think it was made specifically for those of you out there that like a good kick in the neck when you’re done shaving.
The scent is absolutely wonderful. Ogallala really does know how to blend those fragrances.
As this is a cologne, it should have a stronger scent than the regular aftershaves. Up front, and for a little while, yes the scent is strong and awesome. Wonderful mix of bay rum with clove, which helps round out the faint rough edges of bay rum oil, and helps extend the scent.
I can’t say anything bad about this cologne, nor the Ogallala brand. Fantastic stuff that I will be ordering more of.
(This review is of a sample decant of the original product, and as such I cannot guarantee that the sample contained the appropriate mixture of the original ingredients.)
