Richard, Well, dang! I KNEW this would happen. After keeping that O&G empty box for a few months, I just tossed it last week. It was palm oil based and the list of ingrediants was fairly long ( as these things go ). As I mentioned, you seem to have the old version, which was at least partially tallow based ( "shave soap base...toilet soap base"....etc. ). Then too, while ingrediant labelling seems to be deteriorating in the US, it is becoming more detailed in the EU. Mine is a very good shave soap, but I think that my scented Trumpers are also.
Friday:

Gillette HD Rocket & Swedish Gillette blade
Rooney Finest, medium, #1
Trumpers O&G hard shaving soap
D R Harris's Pink A/S
Trumpers Spanish Leather

Gordon, I don't have an issue with the Trumper soaps (other than the few scents that give me irritation), they are very good. If my Oxford Blue soap is tallow based (or partially) that may explain the slight difference. I really can't get enough of that soap.

Saturday

Merkur progress razor
Feather de blade
Rooney finest style 1 medium brush
Taylor's Eton College cream
Thayer's rose witch hazel
Tabac AS

I started the shave with 2 different Gillette razors but couldn't continue; too much scraping and irritation. I find the Merkurs give a closer, less irritating shave.

Saturday:

Gillette HD Rocket & Swedish Gillette blade
Kent BK4
Coate's Lavender shave cream
D R Harris's Pink A/S
Trumpers Fougena

This Kent brush is, unquestionably, extremely good with traditional soft shave creams. For those who don't mind a more flexible feeling bristle, it's about as good as anything. It was nice to get back to my beloved Coate's, after all this diddling about with hard soaps of late ( chuckle ).

Nice photo Doug. I especially like the Black and White of everything except the flower logo. It sticks out like those 'little. yellow. different.' Nuprin pill ads. :D
