Jerry, Nice photo, as usual. Forget about Lee, he has no Coate's at present. Knox may still have a little Lime and/or Tea Tree, but it's old and somewhat dehydrated. Getting tubes from Colonial is really the better bet. Coate's is not like Taylors, the cream in their tubes is consistant in texture....

Regardless of how long they let the tubs settle.......I think 5.3oz is a constant. I'm not at home to look at it but I think that is the right weight. Are you saying that they are going by tub volume and not actual weight? That's correct. They are putting 160 grams in their 150-gram tubs to compens...

I have a pot of this and it is my favorite sandalwood cream. In my opinion, the sandalwood and lavender a...

If you want intensity, go with Castle Forbes. If you want subtlety, go with Trumper's.

But regardless of Taylor's density, it is plain to me that CT is a very light cream. Give it a little poke--you'll see. It's not even close . I'll take Taylor of Old Bond Street out of the equation and say that CT has a lighter and more whipped feel than also Trumper, D.R. Harris, C&E, etc., etc. a...

Last year Taylor's began to "over fill" their containers in response to complaints about the 3/4-full tubs. My understanding is that they fill them, warehouse them for a few weeks to let the product "settle", then top them off again before sending them out. Taylor's cream density is notoriously all ...
