Re: Trumper's Astor Cologne

Olle, I have a bottle of Marlboro myself and it is splendid. Chris I don't own a full bottle of this stuff yet; for the moment all I have is a small vial that came, alongside a shaving relating –order, as a sample. The order arrived to Sweden pretty quickly and I've had the small vial for just a fe...

Re: Acquisitions thread

Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet bundle of shaving soap, cream, and balm. I didn't really need any more cream or soap, but this lot includes the tallow soap and was a pretty good deal. I don't know if I'll keep any of the items or just pass them on. You bastard, I was just about to put in an order mys...

A 200ml backup bottle of English Fern. The date on the back of the box states it's from 1999.

Sorry for the poor quality of the picture...

Vintage Trumper Rose Shaving Soap with tallow is the best soap I've yet to try.

Interesting article about Trumper and the hairdresser Mr Crisp (including wonderful pictures)

I found this relative new article (2016) about Trumper and the late royal hairdresser Mr Crisp and I don't think I have seen it been posted on here. It's about an auction of some old shaving related memorabilia used by the royal hairdresser, who described in the article, visited Buckingham Palace ev...

Re: Trumper's Astor Cologne

Haven't had the opportunity yet to test all the colognes from Trumper's "classic collection", only Marlborough and Wellington, which both I love. Astor I haven't tried. I have a bottle of Wellington and I'm gonna buy a bottle of Marlborough but there are too many vintage colognes that are on top of ...

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...

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 ...

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.

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.
