Created to answer the need for a more bracing experience, Cat O' Nine Tails delivers!   It may be in the bay rum family, but look out - it has a LOT of personality!  One customer described the robust scent well when he said it was, "deeper, darker and somehow more mysterious - the evil twin of your bay rum aftershave." Another described the scent as having, “a good manly smell to it, spicy deep and really dark.”

After being applied to a freshly shaven face, The Cat will give you an experience that you won't forget.  Think bay rum extreme. Once it hits your cheeks a slow warmth builds and BUILDS and BUILDS until it plateaus with a sensational warming of the face. Developed for the guy who can take anything life throws at him - you want it, you know it and you NEED it.  Order a bottle today and get ready to feel that BURN! 

The name for this aftershave has a fascinating history. Widely used by the end of the 17th century, the cat was a whip made from heavy rope. A four-foot length was split into its three component strands to produce a two-and-a-half-foot tail. Each of the three strands was then separated again into three to produce the requisite nine tails. These were knotted at the free ends to prevent fraying, and the handle part was then back-spliced to provide a good handgrip. Once made, the cat was stored in a canvas bag until needed. This is also the origin of the phrase, “Let the cat out of the bag,” which was not something any sailor of yore wanted to hear!

No burn smells like BO

I have the regular CC Bay Rum and liked it well enough so I decided to try Cat O' Nine Tails because of all the hype it was an even better scent. Well I bought a bottle and needless to say it smelled like straight up musty body odor. I'll stick with the original version.


Customer review

If you want to be punished for a bad shave then this is the one to go for. It really does come on hard and fast with a real sting that will shock first time but rather morbidly makes you come back for more. Very strong on its Bay Rum base but does give you that kick. One of my favorites.


Customer review

My favorite bay rum. More herbal and fresh smelling than Ogallala, but Ogallala is more intense. Burns much less than Ogallala. The scent is work approved, as it does not bother the sensitive folks, but it does hang around for a while. The scent comes back when you heat up, too. This is a very nice balanced scent to me and don't let the fear of the burn keep you away. If you are shaving right, it won't hurt you.


Customer review

Got a sample of Cat O'Nine Tails earlier this year. Great scent! Longevity is about 3-5 hours for me. One thing that I don't feel is the burn that it's known for, but I don't consider that a negative. I'll be buying a bottle after Christmas if my hints to the family don't result in a bottle under the tree, lol.

Is the best effect of burn what i feeling in my life. Not every wife like a scent, but there is nothing better that wakes in the morning.
