This batch of aftershave has taken just over a year to create! That's right, for the last 13+ months this juice has been "Maturing" to perfection. Autumn Factory truly encapsulates everything I love about fall in New England and is the perfect chaser for Pumpk'n 3.14! 

At first splash it's a crisp, innocent Saturday morning in early October or late September. A pumpkin pie left to cool on a cracked window sill, colored leaves crunching under your feet, the secure snugness of your favorite wool sweater and then...suddenly, it's a warm Autumn twilight and the stars are out, you are walking on a path through the woods, you're a character in a mystery perhaps or a spooky folktale. Then just as suddenly as the reverie began, it's over.

Autumn Factory really pumps out the spirit of the season, fun but at the same time sophisticated. You are first hit with that cool menthol reminder that winter's coming and then the aromatic spices of the moment hit you; nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, peppercorn, ginger, vanilla... As the top notes fade away you are then hit with the earthiness of benzoin and helichrysum. Then there is the ever present undertone of rosewater...it's like falling asleep reading a book on a lazy fall day...and so much more.

Pairs perfectly with Pumpk'n 3.14 Old Time Shave Soap!

This is a masterpiece when it comes to aftershaves. It reminds me of a freshly baked pumpkin custard pie that was left on a countertop near an open window on a slightly chilly fall day. It goes perfectly with the Pumpkin 3.14 soap, but it's much smoother and has a little less cinnamon. This stuff also has alot of staying power. I could still get a little hint of cinnamon 12 hours later.

I bought this to pair with my pumpkin spice soap. I love the smell but a word of warning.

DO NOT USE LIKE YOU WOULD OTHER SPLASHES. Man my face was burning for 20-30 seconds.

Other than that, its great. The smell is will make women turn their heads and want to have a sniff, and maybe a taste.

I bought this after shave because I wanted to pair my spicy/seasonal soaps with something other than traditional bayrum AS. Wow oh boy is this stuff amazing the way I describe it is walking into a craft/hobby store in November with the holiday spices filling the air though out the isles. I bought it late August to beat the holiday buyers who will grab it in fall. Guys trust me it's a must have to yalls collections its a great change up and I feel pairs great with any spiced soap or vanilla,ginger,rum soaps . NOTE-THIS IS A 5++++ STAR AS I just marked it low to get yalls attention ;) growforit!

I purchased this aftershave along with the Pumpk'n 3.14 Synergy 1.5 shaving soap. The scents compliment each other perfectly. For me this aftershave layers a spiciness on top of the pumpkin scent of the Pump'n shaving soap. I will say that this aftershave definitely has a bigger menthol "kick" and "burn" compared to the other HTGAM aftershaves with menthol I have (The Beach, CaD, and Lo Haiku) and that is not necessarily a bad thing. I kind of like it. Maybe it was the combination of using this aftershave with the soap. I have sensitive skin and I did not have any issues with this aftershave, but I did get some serious redness with the Pumpk'n soap which became a non-issue after several uses. Excellent aftershave. It's like fall in a bottle.

Ok so I'm not a "review guy". Meaning I'm not usually one for soapboxing my opinion all over the internet so someone else can make their call, but with HTGAM I keep finding the need to do so. Let me explain why. This aftershave is phenomenal. The alum and menthol will give you a good kick right off the bat. I have super sensitive skin as well so it hit me like a crossed lover. That wake-you-up soon fades to leaving your skin feeling refreshed, and smooth just like a balm would. The smell of this particular aftershave is fall in a bottle. Seriously. I grew up in New England, still live in Salem MA and this scent is everything ive chased in a fall bottle. The crisp sweet smell of a fall breeze, the warmth of the inside of a house. The hint of those potpourri style wreaths you see on doors. All while staying spicy and masculine enough that you dont end up smelling like a candle. Possibly my new favorite product from HTGAM, until he pumps something else out I'm sure.
