I can't smell one damn note in any cologne, and yet this guy is finding hints of Lebanese Pizza in a perfume. He needs to insure his nose.

T&H Customer Service

6 days after I recieved an order from Truefitt and Hill, I get a handwritten (address and letter) thank note with a business card from the manager Brittney C. Jansen. Now that's good customer relations! It was even that big of an order (~$80)

1805-like Scents

I really enjoy my Truefitt and Hill 1805. I was wondering if anyone knew any similar scents, either from T&H, the other two T's, or anyone else. Thanks.

I agree with Andy, the Proraso for me doesn't lather as well. It is still great and refreshing but not as substantive as Taylor's. In my experience Taylor's makes the best lather in the least amount of time.

The thing is a beast. My forearm was sore the first week I used it. But it got stronger and now I am totally satisfied. My only other experience is with a small Super badger Vulfix, so I can't really make an comparitive judgments. It makes great, warm, slick lather. I couldn't be happier, and if I c...

My monday (the Polo Sport cologne came a little later). It was a great shave. That's Taylor Pre-Shave Gel if you are wondering.

In the excellent movie Reservoir Dogs, Michael Madsen takes a straight razor from his boot, does a little E-W pass on his cheeks and then cuts off a cop's ear, all while singing Stealer's Wheel "Stuck in the Middle with You".

I am travelling to Paris for a month and have a couple questions: 1. What is the best way to transport a shaving brush (does it need to breath, etc)? 2. What is the best way to transport glass cologne and aftershave bottles? 3. Should I put my toiletry kit in my check-in luggage or carry-on? And of ...

I use a smaller bowl that isn't super shallow. My fully bloomed Vulfix 40 when placed in the bowl only has like a 1/4 of an inch of room left. However, it produces great lather and I couldn't be more satisfied. The bowl is actually a Cafe au Lait "mug" (if you have had a true french cafe au lait you...
