Floris shaving creams

Post by churchilllafemme » Fri Aug 23, 2013 11:37 am

Except for the No. 89, I don't see any Floris shaving creams for sale anywhere. Did I somehow miss the fact that the Elite, JF, and Santal have been discontinued? Or am I just not looking in the right places?

Hmmm interesting, John; I can't find them on the Floris website either. Although these three scents don't interest me (too modern in style for my liking), I know some people round here do enjoy using them.

I'll be paying a visit to the Jermyn Street shop in a couple of weeks, so I'll look and see if they're still available there.

Good, I'll be interested to hear if they're still out there, if not online.

Several posters over at B&B have stated that both scents have been discontinued. I don't know if they are right, just passing it along FWIW.
Cheers,

With all the fuss and bother about the soaps, specifically the No. 89, I was distracted to the point of ignoring the Floris creams, and could have bought them right off the shelf at my local retailer. Then the store decided to stop carrying the Floris line and had a great sale on the existing stock, I stubbornly continued to ignore them. Now it's all a distant memory, and I never had the pleasure of the soap or the cream.

Craig it seems odd they would cancel them but who knows.
