Your top 5 splashes for skin care

#11
For me there is a plateau occupied by SV, its just so healing/soothing/invigorating. After that there are two very good German splashes, Speick & Tüff which I've found to suit me very well, after that I lump everything else together.

1.
Saponificio Varesino

2. Speick
3. Tüff

Floid Vigoroso.
Nivea Men ~ Phase 2.
Proraso Red or Green.
Benjamin's ~ Mentholated Bay Rum.
Any of the above have done wonders for my mature skin.
I've been meaning to pick up a bottle of Ben's Menthol Bay Rum before summer (a season I can barely remember). There were a few of Afro-Caribbean hair extension/beauty products in my local town that used to sell it but they all seem to be out of stock of it now. Hopefully they will get it back in stock soon!

It'll be well worth the effort to seek out a bottle, i use it for every season in the year..a under-estimated skin care wonder.;)

Thanks, how would you describe these fragrances please?
According to SV Stella Alpina is "designed to reproduce the alpine environment, where edelweiss grows." Scent pyramid is:

Lemon, Bergamot, Basil
Cistus, Myrtle, Eucalyptus
Cypress, Amber

All I can say is it smells fresh, clean and very pleasant.

Artic Tundra, in SV's words: "designed to recall the atmosphere of the Arctic Tundra, we chose the scent of Agar Wood (oud) but harmonized to give the sensation of open and fresh spaces, with a markedly woody perception." Scent pyramid is:

Oud, Cedar, Tangerine
Cashmeran, Damascena Rose, Patchouly
Amber, Sandalwood, Leather

I get oud, rose and amber mostly, its a Cologne quality scent definitely.
