"Bay Rum" Aftershave by Sterling Apothecary

Regular price

Based on a 1930’s recipe our Sterling Bay Rum is an aftershave style spritz with a completely unique spiced fragrance. A much loved classic of the Sterling product range. Spray on the face and neck, It can also be used to freshen up clothing. Avoid contact with eyes and sensitive skin, and always patch test on fabrics before applying. Keep in the fridge for a refreshing skin spritz in the warmer months.

"My very first product and still hand-spiced by yours truly. When I started working in my uncle's barber shop as a kid, he used a spray after shaving his customers. It's a smell that has always stayed with me. I tried so hard to find it but even with my uncle's help we couldn’t trace it. Then talking to a chemist, I got him to make a base Bayrum and slowly but surely I added my own spices, and then one magic moment I replicated the Bayrum I remember. Keep it in the fridge and spritz it on your face / neck on hot days. It’s a calming, cooling spray, a deodoriser, an all round old school experience, it’s the best!" Tony Vacher, Founder of Sterling Hairdressing and Apothecary
