Skin care has not been considered manly, and the label “beauty product” has not helped to get us close to moisturizers, face washes and the like.

In times like this, products like Alt-Innsbruck colognes and aftershave emulsions shine with the honesty of a bygone era. Their formulations contain pure, unadulterated Virginia tobacco, with…
