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

No worries, Gordon :)
I know we are very passionate about this, and it is very depressing with the turn soaps have taken the last couple of years. I'm just glad Floris did get their act together.
Let's hope the Glasweegians get their act together, too.

Re: Praise due for Floris No.89 shave soap

Good to hear your take on it, Gareth,
I got my No. 89 shaving soap two years ago and it's also been a solid performer.

When my brushes get a pink tint I've just lathered up with a soap and the tint goes away, so that would be a +1 on Whistler :)

Great thread! I'm sorry to see that Trumper's are going this rout as I enjoy their scents very much. I would like to point out (as I have in older threads) that C&E and Edwin Jagger use the same formulation in their current soaps as Trumpers used in their previous formulation, and the only differenc...

+1 on traditional scents. I've been mostly using lavender and almond scented soaps and creams the last 6 months.

I do like the Blenheim Bouquet cream and C&E Sienna, though :)

I liked them both, same aftershave, different scents. The L'Occitan has a strong lavender scent, so if you like a stronger scent I would go for the L'Occitan.

They are going to do up the building in St. James street. While the builders are at it they are moving all non-prescripton products to the Burlington Arcade and prescriptions down towards Pall Mall.

I picked up a tube of shaving cream and aftershave on vacation some years back and it was very runny. The scent is identical to the afte...
