Re: Is Plisson still in the hunt?

I bought my first (and only) Plisson shaving brush a little over six years ago now, a size 14 European white set in an Ebony wood handle. It practically ended SBAD for me and I've been using it around 90% of the time to build lather for my shaves. It has for me a great balance in the hand, face feel...

Re: Truefitt & Hill Rose/Lavender Shaving Creams

I'm speculating here, but I feel that with D.R. Harris re-introducing their Rose scented cream has made them change direction, a saturated market as you say (with them also offering a Lavender). The Lavender and Rose scents despite forum perception weren't best sellers either for them. At the time I...

Re: Truefitt & Hill Rose/Lavender Shaving Creams

They have been discontinued, the Lavender hasn't been in stock for a while now, bought one of the last tubes left from T&H's shop almost a couple of years ago now.

They are moving towards cologne scented shaving creams solely (Almond being the exception).

Re: Question for the scent Mavens

D.R. Harris Marlborough shaving soap is heavy on the Cedar wood scent but isn't pure cedar wood, it's a blend of woody notes with a hint of spice.

Re: Trumpers hard shaving soap- my review

'Cocoate' in the ingredients list merely indicates that it is the current formulation of shaving soap being offered by Trumper's. I am working my through a Sandalwood puck of this current formulation at the moment, alongside a previous formulation of Violet. Both lather well and I get a very good sh...

Re: Trumpers hard shaving soap- my review

The current formulation used by Trumper's for all of their shaving soaps now uses the same base formula as the Eucris soap. So it's not difficult to tell if you have the current formulation or a previous formulation. If you are not familiar with the Eucris formula, then key word to look out for is '...

Re: Huge News:Re-Reformulated Penhaligon's Soaps

Standard Soap Co. were producing the good palm versions of both Trumper's and T&H's shaving soaps (and bath soaps too), they were a company with over a 100 years experience in soap making, so they knew what they were doing (but stopped manufacturing last year). Trumper's, T&H and Penhaligon's then s...

Re: Huge News:Re-Reformulated Penhaligon's Soaps

I was told a while back that Standard Soap Co. made Trumper's soaps but they closed about a years ago. You'll find that they are now using this particular soap manufacturer, as are one or two other well known names here :wink:

Damn.
I should have added, I've only seen the Coconut, Limes and Sandalwood with this formulation so far.

I immediately noticed ( and commented here I think ) that it seemed to lack the punchy scent that their Lavender soap used to have. And, it turns out that this Almond scent is the same trip only to an even greater extent. I bought refills of all five D.R. Harris shaving soaps directly from their sh...

Truefitt & Hill Sandalwood Shaving Soap?

I was checking out the Truefitt & Hills UK website and it shows a picture of a Sandalwood shaving soap in a wooden bowl, but doesn't actually show it listed for sale yet, will be interesting to see how this develops.
