Episode 107 : Bertie's aftershave
Bad news Jeeves!
Aunt Agatha told me I should smarten myself up, get some new suits, that sort of thing ... and she was talking about my aftershave.

Jeeves :
Is there a problem sir?

Wooster :
There most certainly is Jeeves, she said it smells like vinegar! I don't know what's wrong with it, I've had the same bottle for twenty years now - and there's still some left in the bottom!

[Holds up bottle containing small amount of brown sludge]

Jeeves :
Sir, if I may, I'd like to suggest a rather fine cologne from Yardley; Mr Fink-Nottle's valet recommends it most highly. I have taken the liberty of purchasing a bottle of the aftershave and find it to be quite acceptable.
It's a dark woody aromatic, which I believe the amateurs describe as having a 'fruity amber facet' and a 'nuance of chypre'.

Wooster :
Excellent!
I'm having lunch later with Madeline Bassett, perhaps it will smooth her feathers over this blasted engagement business!

Jeeves :
Very good sir.

Later.

What-ho Jeeves!
I say! That cologne thingy worked a treat! One sniff and she was off, saying how she adored it when Fink-Nottle was engaged to her, how manly and fresh he smelled...
and now she's going to have lunch with him tomorrow!

Jeeves :
Am I to take it that the misunderstanding over your engagement to Miss Bassett has been resolved sir?

Wooster :
Absolutely!
Now Jeeves, where can I buy some of that Hardly Original?

Jeeves :
Well, actually sir, Gentlemen's gentlemen do not usually wear cologne, it's a rule of the Junior Ganymede Club, and so I would be most happy if you would make use of the bottle on my behalf, sir.

Wooster :
That's very kind of you Jeeves, thank you.

Jeeves :
Not at all sir, I am merely happy that such a singular scent will be appreciated.
