In an industry where positioning a brand as retro vintage is suddenly new and trendy, Milwaukee’s Lucky Tiger doesn’t even need to even try. Trademarked in Kansas City in 1935, the iconic men’s brand actually stretches back to a barber shop from the 1920s, when it was a very large line of tonics and hair products. Amazingly, many of those exact same formulations exist today.

Ye Olde Barbershoppe is a rather nice combination of woodsy and spicy scents (mostly amber and bay rum, with a bit of musk according to Mama Bear’s website). Does it smell like a barber shop? Well, I guess that depends upon the barber shop. I guess the problem is that there isn’t any real agreement on what a barber shop scent should smell like, even amongst the experts. I can say it doesn’t smell a thing like Taylor of Old Bond Street’s Shaving Shop cream. Which overall I think is a good thing, I do prefer this scent.
