Even if the silver-label tubs from TGS are fresh, that doesn't mean they aren't from an older batch than what I got from Colonial. Nathan, I can verify that if you got these from Colonial this week, they were received directly from CF within the last two weeks. I was in Colonial Drug about a month ...

Re: Sandalwood

Does anyone else like the Trumper Sandalwood? I like it, too. I should qualify that by stating that I'm extremely selective with regard to scents; for instance, I've tried all the Trumper fragrances except Eau de Cologne, Eau de Quinine, Eau de Portugal, Milk of Flowers, Lavender Water & Silvester,...

Re: Creed: your opinions please ...

Actually, I'm still "on the fence" regarding the BdP. The Royal Scottish Lavender is fleeting on me, but the Vintage Tabarome is ...

... Floris very kindly sent me every sample they had available........except limes! Tim, How were you able to get samples? I've sent email to both the London & New York locations, practically begging for samples, about once every two weeks for over two months with no results so far. What is the tri...

Colonial Drug in Harvard Square

There was a recent post on Colonial Drug's receipt of a couple of cases of Coate's shaving creams: http://www.shavemyface.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4286 Since I work nearby, I headed over to Hahvahd Squayah today to check it out. I figured it'd be good to share what I learned with the SMFers, since ...
