Trumper Skye

I haven't had the chance to try this one yet and after reading some post on here it has intrigued me but the cologne doesn't seem to be highly regarded over at Basenotes for example where many describe it as a failed attempt from Trumper to create their version of a modern "aquatic, marine" type fra...

Floris Rose Geranium Ebay

Ive read some post here regarding Floris Rose Geranium cologne and I just saw a new listing for it on Ebay - I would have purchased it myself but the seller is unwilling to ship overseas.

Re: Truefitt & Hill Creams

I agree, although creams tend to be more expensive as you use more product. But I don't think T&H have discontinued their Rose-cream, only the tub version. You can still get it in tubes.

Re: Truefitt & Hill CreamsI think

Thank you mate! Yes Its a real shame that they don't offer some lavender water with this awesome scent but I guess that they feel like they have to modernize and appeal to more modern, maybe younger, costumers. Ive been reading some of Gordons post on here were he complained that Truefitt had reform...

Re: Truefitt & Hill Creams

I've been lucky to acquire some of the last tubs of Truefitts lavender shaving creams! Now this is what I recall as a classic "English lavender" scent. Fantastic. :) I got them at a discount too – as the lids were somewhat defected and therefore they had dried out a bit but I didn't have a any probl...

Re: Lavender

Re: Lavender

Mine was defiantly used and my bottle had a film over the hole and I could hear that sucking sound after piercing it as well. I have seen newer version unused and still in the box on Ebay but those haven't been the old English Lavender (only English Lavender) but maybe that isn't such a big deal. I ...

Regarding their rose scent... I do love TOBS rose but are the TOBS and T&H different enough, scent wise, to warrant a purchase (of T&H)=

Re: Lavender

My bottle of Old English Lavender from Yardley arrived today and... it didn't smell good -- at all. :wink: As I suspected the juice has most likely turned bad, all tough I think I did spot some similarity to English Fern deep down there, under all the nastiness. But maybe it was supposed to smell li...

Re: The state of the current English Shaving soaps

I have tried Wool Fat but I think its too hard to make a stable lather with my hard water and I find the scent a little dull but I might buy another puck in the future to see if my lathering abilities have improved. I did remember that the soap had excellent post shave though, probably the best post...

The state of the current English Shaving soaps

Which of the English shaving soaps available on the market today produce decent lathers (i.e not thin and bubbly)? DR Harris for sure but I know that Penhaligon have reformulated their soaps (again) and my Sartorial shaving soap do work fine and as I understand it have Floris reformulated their shav...
