Re: Checking out some Taylor's soap and creams

I'm really eager to try TOBS lavender soap - if some kind soul out there has a spare puck, I would happily buy it! :wink:

Re: Gillette Scores an own goal

This isn't the first time a large corporation -- and this time almost seemingly out of pure desperation -- advertise this kind of stuff, hoping to score some political points. I think this advertisement from Gillette fall in to that sort of category, a willingness to submit to the current political ...

I just have to purchase a new cake then! :) I wish that these firms actually would tell us when they change things, but I guess that is too much to ask for though.

Re: Simpler still

Seems like I'm in the minority here. I like my lather thick and creamy, so much so that once I finished the first pass, I squeeze out the remainder of lather in the brush in to a bowl, add more soap/cream to the brush and start working the lather again in the bowl. Its quite wasteful, I know, but I ...

Despite the ugly looking tube, the Douro cream is really great. If the old Lords cream is even better, that one must be truly excellent!

Re: Royal Yacht

Considering past glories, I should mention that the other Royal Yacht - from Alfred Dunhill - is no longer available. It seems the Danish company that license the name and recipe from Dunhill aren't willing to ruin the tin art with photos of various cancers as EU regs now require for pipe tobacco. ...
