If you are looking for a real classic bay rum after shave, you can find Superior 70 from Puerto Rico in the ethnic products section of any Walgreens in an area where there is a hispanic population. It will last all day with an occasional pat of cold water to bring it back. It will cost you less tahn $2.00.
2 best Bay Rums out there are Stephans and D.R. Harris...the Stephans averages about 15.00 online and the Harris is around 30.00, both are excellent REAL Bay Rums, either will last a good 4 hours. Enjoy!
""There are anecdotal stories of people pulling themselves by there (their) bootstraps (even though this is a myth)."
I personally know two people who have done such. One came from a poor family (single mother) back in the 40's…"
