Aqua Velva

Aqua Velva Aftershave | Agent Shave

Launched in 1917 by the JB Williams company, Aqua Velva was America’s original 5-in-1 aftershave: closing pores, firming, toning, cooling and conditioning skin. It quickly became a necessity for the well-groomed man and could even be found in World War 2 dopp kits by the late 1930s.

In the 1970s, thanks to celebrity endorsements, Aqua Velva became a firm staple in many male grooming routines.

The mild fresh scent scent has an undertone of menthol - a refreshing yet pleasing scent!
