WTT: Vintage Trumper Tallow Sandalwood Shaving Soap

Trumper's old shaving soaps with tallow are the best soaps I've tried (better than Yardley even IMO). I have scents Rose, Almond, Sandalwood and I'm eagerly awaiting for a puck of violet, also tallow, to arrive! I love them all but the Sandalwood scent just don't cut it for me -- it's still a very n...

Re: What Bath soap/Body Wah do you use?

I have tried using bar soaps, latest soap has been Colonia Russa from SMN, however I don't know if it's because I'm not used to use bar soaps when I shower but they just don't work for me - my skin feels a lot drier than when I'm using shower creams. Bar soaps do come in much nicer scents though, it...

Re: Acquisitions thread

https://i.ibb.co/99K3N8V/20190920-115236.jpg I forgot to emphasise in my earlier post how happy I am that my quest for a bottle of vintage Floris 89 Toilet Water is finally over! And it was totally worth it! Albeit, I suspect that it has lost some if it's potency, it's still a very beautiful scent ...

Penhalgon may be discontinuing English Fern & Douro

I didn't see English Fern and Douro listed on Penhaligon's website so I emailed them and asked. This is the response I got: "Good Morning Thank you for your email We think they might be discounted, there will probably be stock in our stores. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Thank you Kind ...

WTB: Vintage Floris 89 cologne/afershave

I know, it's a long shot but if anyone has a bottle they want to sell - please contact me. I'm pretty gutted as I was very close to buying a pristine bottle of the vintage 89 toilet water but unfortunately it got unavailable.

Re: Vintage Hammam - first impression

I just want to share this very interesting presentation and discussion with Sheila Pickles about Penhaligon's in the journal of the Royal Society of Arts from 1982 (page 13 and onwards). Apparently Penhaligon still had one 99 year old barber with only one remaining customer when Sheila took over and...

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. :) How are the new ones? I have only tried the rose soap (new) one time and so far... it's not good. Very, very thin lather that dried up once on the face - I will give it another shot though because I re...

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...
