Re: What's today's soap or cream?

Geo. F. Trumper's Rose Shaving Cream I've been thinking my tub only has a week left, but the weeks just keep going by. Didn't care much for this rose scent in the beginning, but it's grown on me with continuous use. Next in line is T&H's so I get to do a back to back comparison. I just need to finis...

Re: DRH's Arlington Pre-Shave: A Review

I just finished my bottle of DRH pre-shave. I also did't find it had much effect as an pre-shave and used it as an aftershave. On my bottle it said that it was beneficial for electric shavers. I wouldn't know how that works as I binned my electric shaver when I started wet shaving :)

Re: Creed and Knize shaving soaps

I went through a puck of GIT in 09/10 and found it similar to L'Occitane.
That was when the wife thought this shaving thing was fun (and she dominated the bathroom shelves :)
I really liked the unsanded shaving bowl and still use it, but most find it a letdown considering the cost.

Re: New shaving soap from Penhaligons

Thanks for the review! I can feel an AD in it's beginning. Your description of the scent is encouraging. I like the Sartorial EdT very much, but wasn't sure how it would transelate to the soap. I was afraid it would be to strong as it is my experience that strongly cologne scented shaving soaps give...

Re: Thiers Issard Brushes

Yes, I thought I'd get three in one: a French and/or a Sabini and a horn handle brush :)
It's getting softer every time I use it (or am I just getting used to it?) but it doesn't splay much when heavely loaded.

Re: Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet Cologne . . .

I have both BB and Wellington, but prefer BB. I find it sharper while the Wellington is at bit sweeter and rounder. I especially like using them on hot days were I find the pine note to be refreshing. The first time I tried BB I was very surprised over the pine note and felt it overwhelming, but at ...

Re: Thiers Issard Brushes

I sprang for the T-I 23mm in super with the dark horn handle to celebrate finishing renovating our bathroom (wife not that impressed with my reasoning). The brush is my first stray away from Vulfix/Simpson as my other badger brushes are a Vulfix #2235 Super, a T2 Super and a Chubby 2 in Best. The ha...
