Great fragrance, classic smell of masculinity. Really stimulates the scalp, and keeps hair soft and manageable. Not too much holding power, but adequate for shorter length hair.
At first opening, the fragrance was unusual, medicinal and flowery in a vintage-fragrance sort of way. It felt great on the scalp and I noticed that the fragrance was somewhat bothersome throughout the day. The reason being that I could not identify it or classify it with anything familiar -- was it botanical? Was it fruity? Was it woody or spicy? I almost gave it the back shelf except for the quinine effect. At one point the next day, Dr. Pepper came to mind -- yes, it's that but not entirely. Then a possible recipe of vintage fragrance sources came to mind; cola nut, hint of pepper, rose and others I dare not hazard a guess with. It has since grown on me and no longer bothers me. In fact, I have a fondness for it -- not because it reminds me of soda but because it reminds me of vintage botanical and spice mixtures which have largely faded from the market. I give it five stars for what it is and will continue to purchase it. Great in combination with a bit of the Clubman gel afterward for hold.
Keeps my hair in place without looking "slicked down". Like all Clubman products, it helps to make you look, smell, and feel like a proper Southern gent.
I love this hair tonic! While it doesn't really control the hair in a 'hard' way like a gel, it makes my hair softer, more manageable, and keeps it more 'compact,' so to speak, without weighing it down. Plus it smells so good, I've used it as aftershave on a couple of occasions (crazy, I know). I love it!
The product feels great going on, has a great smell too
Have used since grade school
I like the feel, the effect, the scent that has subtle changes throughout my 12hr+ workday. Wife doesn't care for it......oh well.
This tonic works well. Was unsure if it would leave my hair looking oily or greasy but it doesn't, just enough hold and its dry looking. Seems to be helping my hair look healthier too.
The scent of Quinine is slightly bitter, kind of like quinine and pomegranate. It is a very male, clean scent. It keeps your hair slightly wet but dries in about an hour and gives you a dry, loose hair style that is slightly managed by the product. It works just fine.
