Tallow based soaps: who make em'?

What brands are still using tallow? Musgo has completely switched over...

Thanks.

I didn't take pre-shave seriously until recently.

All I do is soak my face in warm water for 3-5 minutes and then lather.

I can't believe how much better my shaves have got.

I shaved with Musgo this morning. One thing about this cream compared to my others (Proaso, Florena, Williams) is it not only offers a great shave, but more importantly my face feels different than the aforementioned AFTER the shave. No burning, tingling, or anything. FWIW I have sensitive skin so I...

I'd like to know too, but I don't think there is a Floris Canada online retailer. They also won't ship colognes to Canada, because they are considered dangerous. :roll: They will ship to Canada but during checkout they give you a discretion notice that there will be "extra" fees upon delivery. Yeah...

Floris London in Canada

Does anybody know of any online Canadian retailers that sells Floris?

If not, how much extra did one pay to have cologne shipped from Floris?

as always try for yourself.

I was expecting the most amazing scent from No. 89 after all the ranting and raving on these forums on how good it is.

Personally I didn't care for it.

I tried the Elite and it didn't dry, but it was also much softer so i'm sure it was a bad sample.

Wierd...I too tried the JF shaving cream today for the first time (from sample pack) and I TOO had a midterm. anyways, I think I got a bad batch because after applying the cream, half way through shaving it started to dry and flake off into dozens of pieces in the air. Don't like any post treatment ...

Hope I am not late on the news but...

I receieved my Musgo Soap on a Rope and they are no longer tallow based.

Sorry if this had been posted but thought I would share. This is the second time I've been duped by the company who on their webpage have both Musgo soaps stated as being tallow based.

FWIW I have a sampler of Elite that I have only used a couple times and there is still 90% left. I put some on about 30 minutes ago for a second smell.

All my previous statements I stand by - excuse me while I dump this tester.

Elite is a far cry from the designer colognes that line the shelves and counters of the retail establishments. Top shelf and all of that aside, a formulation that has over 25 years longevity by one of the old British fragrance houses certainly is not in the same class with Diesel.. How so? Proof? I...

My least favorite cologne from Floris - very 80's smelling (obnoxious)

My favorites in this order are...

Santal
Vetiver
No. 89

No. 89 actually lasts pretty good on me. It's nice, soft, flowery, and could potentially be a perfect office wear or super-casual cologne.

Tried the 89. while an ok frag nothing special in my books.


Vetiver is the winner. Without a doubt the nicest smelling cologne for me in the Floris lineup.

It's sharp, soft, masculine, dark and not too spicy.

Really wonderful, will wear it for a week and if I still like it I will buy a bottle.

I tried Santal today and I don't mind it. It's better and more modern than the other scents yet still very masculine. Some compare it to Gucci Envy but I think it actually smells much much subtle and refined - you can tell it's a higher quality cologne. I think it's going to be between Vetiver and S...

Received Floris Sampler: my thoughts...

I received my Floris sampler about 2 weeks ago. Great customer service. I like to try a cologne for longer than 2 days so I have only tried 3 so far but here are my thoughts... Floris Elite: Not my kind of scent, dries down much nicer than when first on but still too brutish and old man for my taste...

Olive oil soap has nothing to do with oil cleaning methods. You may like the soap, but don't start to think that you're doing OCM or even close. Olive oil soap is just soap. He is correct, I do the OCM and it's the Castor oil that is the 'special' ingredient. The special thing about OCM, for someon...
