Fine American Blend

Discussion in 'After Shave / Cologne' started by Barry Giddens, Monday May 1, 2017.

  1. Good Morning gents.

    I have been using Fine American Blend aftershave splash for a few days now and I absolutely love it. I was even complimented by my 18 year old niece yesterday and that never happens.

    So my question is, can anyone recommend a cologne or eau de toilete to match it? The Fine website states that American Blend is inspired by YSL Rive Gauche. Any other suggestions please?

    Thanks guys.

  2. I sometimes use Fine American Blend as well and it is a great Aftershave, it lasts quite a long time just as good as an EdT or cologne. My suggestion would be; because the scent lingers a lot longer than an ordinary aftershave, you may mix and ruin the scent by using another edt or cologne on top of it, so why not buy a small atomiser bottle and decant some in there and carry in your pocket or leave in your office or where ever you work.

    The Rive Gauche is the perfect match. I'm not sure you'll find anything else similar

    When Fine say 'inspired by', what they actually mean is 'pretty much identical to' - the Platinum is a dead ringer for Aventus, and ditto the Lavender for Oxford & Cambridge - good stuff

  6. I like Fine's American Blend. My wife likes it too.

    I tend to use it often, except when it's too hot... so I think I must pair it with fragrances like Acqua di Parma Classica or Alvarez Gómez Barbería... Not sure it's right, but... I like it.

  7. Yes I think your right Juan. The Alvarez Gomez is an excellent call. I had a sample of that a few months ago. Think I will invest in a bottle for the summer. Thanks for your help.

  8. My pleasure, Barry!

    It's amazing how a relatively low-cost cologne gets so many compliments when I wear it... or maybe it's me who gets the compliments:cool:.

  11. I know! I have had more compliments for my American Blend than any scent I have ever had before. Some of them very expensive.
