Dominica Bay Rum aftershave is a naturally pure organic fragrance with no artificial dyes, fragrances, or synthetic enhancers of any kind. The art of making authentic quality bay rum lies in the masterful blending of the purest of alcohol and the leaf oil extract from the Caribbean bay tree (Pimenta racemosa). Its generous topical application tones, conditions, and leaves skin feeling clean, fresh, smooth, and lightly scented
Dominica Bay Rum is used as an aftershave, but is also used in the Caribbean as a body splash, cleanser, massage lotion, antiseptic first aid, hair tonic and a bath water additive.
About Dominica Imported:
The Small Island of Dominica: It's north of Martinique. Columbus discovered it, named it, and left it alone. And since 1907, it has been the home of the West Indian Bay Rum company of the same name. Subtle yet sexy, Bay Rum is the reminiscent of the the way skin begins to smell from strong sun, salt water, steel drums, breaking waves and gently swaying palm branches.

Since I moved stateside, I have been on the lookout for a solid Bay Rum, I recently got a bottle of Cat of Nine Tails in from Smallflower and it's an amazing bay rum. Packs a punch.
But I think when it comes to value for money and a solid Bay Rum, this is the one. It's less "clovey" and more Bay leaf which is very subtle and a great scent.
This isn't a strong aftershave, its very cooling and subtle. If you are looking for a great bay rum for a good price, you can't go wrong with Dominica Imported.
The Real Deal by BIll from San FranciscoAge: 26-34Gender: Male Used Product For: More than 2 years
This is premium, classic Bay Rum, the stuff that your great-great grandfather and grandmother would use to freshen up, comb into their hair, or sometimes even drink to cure what ailed them. I've been using it for over 10 years, and there's nothing else like it. I use it as an aftershave or to splash on face, neck, underarms, etc in the middle of a hot day to freshen up and cool off. A splash here and there will quickly evaporate to a very light--as in most people wouldn't notice it--and pleasant Bay Rum scent that can last all day. You can use as much or as little as you want, without risk of being the jerk asphyxiating people in the elevator.
Other "Bay Rums" are mixed with additional scents, oils, and conditioners, probably because plain Bay Rum is rather unfamiliar, not very strong, and doesn't quite meet modern expectations for an aftershave, EDT, or cologne. But if you're looking for a traditional Bay Rum, California-Antilles Dominica Bay Rum is it, period.
