Not quite the shaving kind of sailor? More of a Blackbeard type? Use Mr. Natty Presents Frank’s Beard Elixir to get your chin hairs properly conditioned.

Mr. Natty

Birchbox Breakdown

Smelling like a sailor doesn’t mean bilge and tooth decay. Mr. Natty highlights a seaman’s finer odors with his signature Bay Rum After Shave, a subtle blend of bay leaves and rum. Just be warned: this is a classic alcohol-based aftershave and not for the faint of heart. And for goodness sake, don’t take a swig.

How it Works

Inspired by traditional 16th century recipes, this old fashioned after shave has just two ingredients: bay leaves and rum. There’s no other scent that’ll leave you feeling quite so ready to hoist up the John B sail.

How to Use

After a shave, or any time you need a little pick-me-up, pour a small amount of after shave into your palms and give each side of your face a light splash. You’ll feel like you’re riding the prow of an 18th century privateer (Mr. Natty even provides you with a sea shanty to sing).

Nope.

Got a sample of this and yes it smells good, but it's basically all alcohol based... Alcohol is terrible for the skin, especially after a shave. I would ditch this and go for a natural non alcohol aftershave.

BEST AFTERSHAVE IVE EVER USED

This is really great stuff. Crisp clean, smooth smelling, very classic. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for that classic barbershop smell.

Not very Bay Rummy

I like bay rum. It's an old school, clean, manly scent. Mr. Natty's did not give that deep, long lasting bay scent that I was looking for. It goes on clean, but fades fast. In the end, I'm going to replace this purchase with something that does indeed last longer.

Wish it weren't alcohol-based

This stuff smells great, but I have a hard time justifying an alcohol-based aftershave. I still use it sometimes, but it would be more of a go to with a skin-friendlier formula.

Awesome

I got this as part of one of the Mr. Natty kits and it's easily my favorite item I got in it. The only complaint I have about their products is that a number of them smell pretty similar, this has a different scent that still works well. It's also not very overpowering and you get a good sized bottle of it. Worth the money, even more so if you can get it in one of the kits.

Mr. Natty hits a homerun!

This after shave has a wonderfully manly smell without too much muskiness!

Slap it on your face, your neck and behind your ears to get yourself ready for the day--after your shave or trim.

I will definitely be purchasing this again.

I indulged on a risk and was rewarded

I've tried all after shaves, Jack Blacks weird Gel that people seem to love, the Amazon favorites like Proraso and Lucky Tigers as well as the cheap Walmart afters shaves like Brut and Stetson.

I love this after shave. Heavy alcohol base for the sting (I absolutely love a solid punch to the face) and then a solid but light sent of Caribbean rum spices (that I can only guess are made to last in alcohol). Smells like nothing I've ever used, only 4 ingredients in the whole bottle.

After about 20 minutes I use a light coat of the Plant face oil and bam, good to go embarrass myself in front of women.

I like this stuff, and would recommend it.
