I dont use mine often, but whenever I do the shave is always top notch. I bought tubes of lime and rose

I really like the Coates creams. I had a big tub of the sandalwood that I bought several years ago - it was fantastic. And, as noted, I have a bunch of tubes that I bought - in sandalwood, lime and lavender. The lavender scent is a bit more ... astringent ./.. than other lavenders I have used, but it is nice anyway.

I still have a link to the website for our pal with the tubes - I wonder how the supplies are holding out. I was curious about the tea tree one.

I just found the link also. I'm curious to find out if there's still some Tea Tree you may buy. Not by me though, I'm still flush with several more tubes of Sandalwood. Maybe Andy will still be around when those run out.

Gary/Gene, I've been in touch with Andy in the last week or so and he still has plenty of stock of all scents in the Coate's tubes.

My little tube of Coates Sandalwood put up a good fight. And it lasted a full 26 daily shaves, all of them first rate. Now I've got to zero in on my next victim ---
