Another evening shaver. Almost never shave in the morning unless I'm off. Too much of a rush as I need to be at work early in the morning

T&H 1805 cream. This is my wife's favourite scent. Can't use it too often because the cologne irritates my skin

A long time Moss user also. So satisfied, have not seen the need to try any other but have heard good things about the Dirty Birds. Just returning after a lengthy absence. Glad to see SMF still retains it's classy demeanour

Gillette 7 O'Clock Sharp Edge (Yellow). Used exclusively for past 2 years and haven't had a single bad blade. For me they last a week of daily shaves

Good to know that if I don't care for it as a cologne, I can always drink it some night after dinner
Before, please. It doesn't smell like port!

Now my nose says they are different. The Sandalwood A/S is like an old sweet sherry, and is possibly the cologne that is most tempting to drink of any I have smelled. The cream is a raw unsweetened wood. In fact, you could characterise them as being similar to the olfactory and gustatory relationsh...

Chris, They're certainly not identical, but they are quite similiar, which is what I think the OP was asking about. He was concerned that they might be REALLY different, like Trumpers Sandalwood shave soap and their Sandalwood Cologne....that sort of thing. Regards, Gordon Quite correct, however it...

TOBS Sandalwood

I like the scent of TOBS Sandalwood cream. Is their Sandalwood cologne the same scent or is it quite different as is sometimes the case?

I'm a little more compulsive than the other posters so far. :) I like a three-piece razor because it is easy to disassemble it, rinse it and the blade, air-dry the blade and towel-dry the razor, and put it all back together, shiny and squeaky-clean, for the next shave. :D - Murray Yes, me too

Although for a while it will feel to many of us like we've had our right arm chopped off, the action that is being taken is a necessity.

Jake, TOBS Rose, Lavender and Almond work well for me. Very moisturizing which I need for my northern winter climate. Almond smells like marascino cherries. I also like the scent of Sandalwood but can only use it a couple of days at a time as I find it somewhat drying. Have not tried the avacado but...
