Re: The state of the current English Shaving soaps

I have one puck of tallow Almond and two veggie formula (quite new I imagine) pucks on my way. :)

Re: I just got suspended fro Ebay!!!

Interesting "Clubman" bottle

Take a look at this strange bottle of some sort of Pinuad Clubman aftershave. What an interesting bottle indeed, it kind of looks like it's been manufactured by the "other", "fancier" Pinaud in Paris. I Wonder if it smells like the regular american Clubman aftershave. https://www.ebay.com/itm/283407...

Re: Introduction

Welcome to in my opinion the best shaving forum on the web – even though it isn't as active as it once was! It seems that the discussions on the boards tends to be more towards artisanal soaps and away from the "classics", which is fine I guess. I've tried a few artisan made soaps and they have all ...

Re: Dominica Bay Rum

I haven't bought any bay rum cologne yet but I will. I don't know if its a cultural thing but the bay rum soaps i have tried doesn't smell very summery to me, more like Christmas actually. How are the British alternatives -– Harris, Trumper, Taylors? Vintage Trumper Bay rum, that might be interestin...

My recent Trumper's Almond

For me, buying creams from Trumper recently has been a 50/50 deal whether or not I get an actual good cream or a dried out one. Dried out creams are usable but never function as good as they should do IMO. I don't know if this problem lies with the suppliers who let their goods sit too long on the s...

Re: Best Pomade

Ollie, have you tried Clubman pomade? I don't know if it's available where you are but thought I'd ask. It's good stuff but maybe a bit stiffer than what you're used to. For myself, when I want a hair hold, I've settled on a combination of products: Yardley's Brilliantine and the US Groom & Clean. ...

Re: Advice for starting a new cake of vintage soap

Thanks for the tips! I just received the C&E "For Men" in the wooden box and I'm waiting for a NOS Yardley shaving soap and a Trumper's Sandalwood in tallow (which I need a bowl to, check S&T) ! ;)

Thank you Gary, I will check that out! And regarding Eucris.... The new version is that bad, huh?
