Swiss Pitralon Aftershave Splash
Swiss Pitralon is a classic aftershave that until now had been virtually impossible to find in the United States. This aftershave is renowned for its excellent skin care qualities -surprising for an alcohol based splash. The scent is a bit hard to describe but I get a hint of pear. It is sure to become a favorite.

Took a try based on great reviews for Swiss Pitralon and wow! Great stuff, leaves such a soft and smooth finish and the light scent is just enough to know you put it on and not get tired of it. Would buy a case if I had enough $!
I was glad to find this stateside as I was worried I was going to be compelled to use a European source and hope it arrived intact. This really is one of the best aftershaves going not so much for its scent (which is subtle and fades quickly) but for its uncanny ability to speed heal those troublesome nicks we all sustain from time to time whilst shaving.
Quick shipping and excellent packing on the product too.
I am repeat user of this product. It is unique in the US and the scent is unique also. It sets you apart from the crowd subtlety. The odds in the US of another guy wearing this are very very low. The item is superb and shipped securely. Very difficult to find the the US. There is a German version also, but I prefer this Swiss version. The scents differ. Highly recommended.
I really enjoy the remarkably different scents of these aftershaves. Different than any other shaving product and different than the other pitralon aftershaves. Each pitralon is very soothing after a BBS. Sorry that the pitralon company requires a box store size order that means it will not be found in North America soon.
This is probably the best, or at least in the top tier of splashed I have used in terms of skin care properties. I also very much enjoy the light scent that lingers for ~40 minutes. I'd liken it to a pear eau de vie (clear brandy). Wish it had a little more staying power, as pears are my favorite fruit.
The one aroma that I haven’t seen mentioned is the scent that I smell once the alcohol dissipates. It is a dark spicy rose. I enjoyed the scent for about 2 hours but my wife remarked that she didn’t pick up an aroma after 20 minutes unless she was kissing close. The splash is quickly absorbed nourishing the skin.
I generally do not use strongly scented aftershaves that linger, and I do like this one. For me, the scent is hard to describe. The initial alcohol scent fades quickly, and is followed by, (maybe), some citrus, evergreen and a few other well integrated scents leaving a nice soothing face feel, in the afterglow.
Nice feel on skin with unique pear type scent. Does not last long, but skin feels nourished.
My second bottle. Great classic scent. Does not linger that long but excellent skin nourishing effect.
This was my first time using the Pitralon brand and I have to say I'm glad I did. To me it speaks more of an old school type of aftershave which I get from the scent. I also get a nice little sting that doesn't last long and it leaves a nice feel on my face. Price is right for a nice sized bottle and I'm waiting until the polar is in stock to try that to. So a nice addition to my aftershave collection.
Have all the Pitralons which are used almost exclusively save Bay Rhums from Dominican, GrandBay and PAA (Atomic Age). Scents are nice but fade quickly as AS splashes should and allow EdT, Colognes&c to carry the desired scent profile. Stocked up whilst on sale showing my commitment to this product line. They condition and set up the skin for a quality AS Balm (prefer the ABC line there). Used together, skin stays hydrated and recovers quickly from daily shaving. Outstanding products
Very nice after shave splash. Has a hint of alcohol right after application but it fades quickly. Very nice face feel after drying. I don't know how to describe the scent. Like all the European after shaves I've tried it is not sweet or flowery. Pushed to pick a scent category I'd go with spicy, but not at all like Old Spice or Bay Rum. It is just a pleasant muted scent that is there but not intrusive.
I didn't know what to think when I first tried the Swiss Pitralon. I've used the Classic Pitralon in the past, so I am able to compare them. The scent is not like anything else I have; you won't mistake it for the other types of Pitralon nor anything else. It has a clean scent with a hint of flowers (Rose?) and herbs that sets nicely on your skin. The scent doesn't last long, and it should not. The feel on the skin is good, too. There is an effect of cooling as well as skin softening/moistening agents that give the skin a nice feel. Since I received this, I find myself reaching for it more often than I would expect.
Leaves skin feeling great very little sting love the scent would purchase again
Purchased a month ago and really glad I did. This aftershave has a very unique scent which I cannot describe. That being said, I really like the feel and scent of the product. Even more compelling reason to buy when it is on sale. BullGoose service is superior so buy with confidence.
I find this aftershave very nice on my skin, soft and smooth. The scent is very unique, can't compare it to any other sent. Got one for my son as well and he really likes it too. BullGoose had a great price so I took advantage. Thanks Phil.
Bought it a few days before the November Holiday it arrived within the week I have not stopped using it since I really like the scent Highly recommended
Pitralon is an excellent finish to your shave. I am happy I have added it to my post shave routine. The scent is unique and leaves your skin feeling great. Bull Goose had a great price and shipping was super fast. Give Pitralon a try.
Pitralon is tops in my rotation. The fragrance for me is bosc pear, regardless I like. The performance top notch meaning minimal sting which depends on my technique. I also noticed a visible reaction the liquid take on as I rub it into my skin. It mashups well with a couple of balms I like to use Somersets, Marlowe and coming soon Burke Ave. I must also mention my wife really likes the scent. Well worth it and shipping was very fast to the 33755.
Very unique smelling aftershave. Smells great and has good staying power!
Very nice aftershave. I have average skin (not oily or dry) and this stuff makes my face feel great after a shave. The scent is light and doesn't linger more than 10 minutes on me. I get a sweet pear/banana smell with a hint of spice. I find it very nice. This is one of those scents that doesn't smell like anything else. It smells like Swiss Pitralon. It is it's own unique scent. Skin care properties are great. I will always have some of this in my den. As usual Bullgoose shipping was fast. Great service. Thanks Phil.
I am elated that I tried this. I give this the highest of recommendations. The scent really is difficult to describe. I believe it does smell like pear. For an alcohol based aftershave it is rather gentle on my skin. I love this stuff. I will definitely have this in my rotation, permanently.
Another reviewer described this as having a "spicey with a hint sweetness" scent to it and I agree with that. This has a great smell. Both my wife and I love this. The scent does not last a long time so it's a great one to wear to work.
Sadly, this is the only version of Pitralon that I cannot abide. All of them have wonderful freshness and moisturizing, but each has a very different scent. This one is so unlike the Classic that I could never tolerate the smell. Nothing cohesive, masculine or attractive, at least not to a 60-ish male who grew up in the USA with men smelling of Aqua Velva, Old spice, Mennen, Pinaud.
Even women who notice and remark the aroma of the aftershave, shave soap or faint cologne I might use have mentioned that this one just didn't smell like anything they thought went on a face. Sorry, as I know there are many who do love this scent.
I like this after shave, it is a large bottle 5.4 oz, price is reasonable. It smells nice, not strong doesn't last long, but it makes you face feel very good, soft, smooth and moist not sticky.
I think this scent is phenomenal. It has a great medium meaning it can go with many and various soap scent profiles... those that are citrus based, spice based, flowery or barbershop (powdery)based. One of my favorites.
A really good value, this one! Spicy with a hint of sweetness that doesn't overpower. Alcohol based but not drying, it gives a wee bit of a bite but that's okay. The burn fades quickly leaving your skin feeling fresh. Pitralon may be inexpensive but it isn't cheap, I highly recommend it.
One of the best I have bought from Bullgoose. Don't let the price fool you. Get a lot of complements on the fragrance.
What can I say, Pitralon just brings back memories ( good memories ) growing up in Europe it was the aftershave of my father and grandfather. When I was a teenager , I of course hated the smell and everything it represented , "old people's aftershave" " etc.
When young we all are rebels ( I still am)
Now bit more younger, on my recent trip to Europe, I purchased ( just for fun) a Pitralon . ( it was in Austria) the reason why I am saying Austria there are few different variations of Pitralon sold in Europe .( Austria , Germany , Switzerland ) All of them with a bit unique touch and feel.
At this point I do prefer the Swiss version ( cooling,soothing , unobtrusive )
I have been through many aftershave products over the years, ranging from Dior to Prada etc. But I do appreciate the simple yet sophisticated "touch" of Pitralon . It takes time to appreciate good things. It took me a long time to graduate to single malt scotches, but now every blended scotch tastes to me like a window cleaning solution . The point is, sometimes it takes time to appreciate the pure and simple things in life.
Very nice subtle scent, not overpowering. Refreshes the face after a close shave. I never use aftershave, this is a nice treat, I am glad I bought it.
Great aftershave with unique scent and solid skin care properties. I find myself using this for weeks at a time as a daily splash.
A nice after shave splash. Soothing with a unique smell to it. Use it with every shave.
Swiss Pitralon used to be impossible to find in the states, I would use it sparingly only on special occasions. Now that it is available at bullgoose (and often on sale it is my daily aftershave. The scent is refreshing and vaguely pear-like. The aftershave qualities are excellent, slightly astringent but leaves the skin refreshed and soft.
HARD TO NAIL DOWN THIS ONE OF A KIND SCENT AWESOME ,TAKES ME BACK TO THE HIMALAYAN MOUNTAINS YEARS AGO PUT THIS ONE IN A CLASS BY ITSELF USE ON SPECIAL OCCASIONS
Mildly soothing, descent skin care formula that doesn't feel to dry with slight hints of citrus and coffee. Thanks BullGoose!
