Pub Aftershave

Ending off a fine shave.

Pub Aftershave

Postby Johnny.b.goode » Mon Jul 10, 2017 9:39 pm

I used to use the revlon pub aftershave, many years back in South Africa and have some good memories of it.
This aftershave/cologne did exist in the United Kingdom, once upon a time, but not anymore.
The question is: Is this aftershave still available back home and does anyone remember this aftershave?

Can't say I've ever seen it.

Perhaps RVT would know.

The packaging looked something like this:

and the bottle:

I don't recall seeing this one around. Must have a look around for it.
This is how my Grandfather shaved
This is how my Father shaved
This is how I shave.

Gents,

I did a quick search online and found something at clicks.

The bottle and packaging looks different. I bet it's been reformulated.

Matter of fact I'm still using PUB. It smells awesome and the fragrance lingers almost the entire day. My first bottle I bought in 1993 and the recent one I bought about 2 years ago for me smells exactly the same. Only thing that changed is the bottle itself. :thumbup:

Bles, that is great news. I will be getting a few bottles for myself next time i visit.

I think, South Africa(revlon) is the only country that makes this fragrance.

Checked Dischem and Clicks at Canal Walk. Dischem does not have Pub Aftershave but Clicks has both the aftershave and cologne versions. R240 for 75mls. Picked up some Blue Stratos Marine Aftershave at the same time as it was on special.

I do like the original look of the packaging and bottle though. Hopefully I might find a vintage bottle and reuse it. Great smelling stuff by the way.
