This aftershave doesn't quite live up to the standards that I have for aftershaves, or the AV name. While it does do a decent job of cooling and toning my skin, it doesn't nearly do it as well as the classic version. It is almost as if this version is a toned down version of the classic everyone loves. As far the scent, I love it, and I get compliments all the time. A more toned down, less masculine scent.
