Musgo Real Classic Portuguese Aftershave (LEO Design)

From Portugal's oldest soap and fragrance company—founded in 1887—comes this classic Musgo Real ("Royal Moss") aftershave.  We've been selling it at LEO Design for 25 years and it continues to be a favorite. Click on the photo above to learn more about it.

Fragrance designations (like "Eau de Toilette," "Cologne" or "Aftershave") distinguish the percentage of fragrance within the product (from highest to lowest). Furthermore, "Aftershave" usually has an astringent and moisturizing base which closes the pores, moisturizes the skin (a little) and helps prevent small nicks from becoming infected. Aftershave has the lowest concentration of fragrance, meaning that it won't smell as strongly (or last as long) as Eau de Toilette or Cologne. That being said, the fragrance concentration in Musgo Real is pretty close to that of cologne.
