I have just blended and bottled some Bootleggers El Dorado aftershave.
The Bootleggers series of aftershaves are an initiative of members on fellow wet-shaving forum Badger and Blade, based in the US.
I used an empty Myrsol bottle - I reckon it scrubs up pretty well. Oh - and the blended aftershave scent is pretty much awesome.
The recipe is:
  • 2 parts Pinaud Clubman Special Reserve
  • 2 parts Pinaud Clubman Classic Vanilla
  • 1 part Dana English Leather

Second that!

Might have to pick up the ingredients next time I'm in the US of A!

I don't see the issue, Clubman aftershaves are available from many local suppliers and English Leather is available at priceritemart.com.au.
DUH! Forgot that ...

Nailed it, Mate.
I'm struggling to find local suppliers for other Bootlegger ingredients, such as Mennen Skin Bracer, Aqua Velva, Osage Rub, Florida Water, and Superior70 Bay Rum.. Any intel?

Florida Water can be found on ebay locally, used by wicca and voodoo practitioners apparently. The other ones, no idea about if they're available locally. However Aqua Velva and Skin Bracer are easily obtained on ebay from US sellers willing to ignore the restrictions on alcohol. I buy my Aqua Velva here. Same seller also sells Skin Bracer.

Cheers - you are a pillar of the P&C community.

There *might* be a collection of US "drugstore" aftershaves in a charity auction later in the year too ...

I can see why the yanks be crazy for these splash hacks. Last time I was in the States I couldn’t help but bring back a stash of Mennen Skin Bracer and Aqua Velva. Cheaper than chips, and stares at you from every corner store Walgreens.
(but stuff is nasty used solo...I sold or gave all my stocks away a few years back. Kinda regret it now really...)

Yep - you're right, Stillsy. Having said that, we have easy access to Imperial Leather aftershave, but it is unavailable in the US and UK. I've had a heap of UK wet shavers ask me about it.
Which has me thinking - maybe substitute Dana English Leather with Imperial Leather in the Bootlegger's El Dorado Blend -hmmmmm?

IIRC The Stray Whisker sells, or at least sold Masters brand A/S.
