I ran out of my Jermyn Street cream and so started using some Cold River Soap Works Classic shaving soap, also one of Brothers recommendations. I love the scent but found that the soap, while excellent for a soap just wasn't as creamy as the TOBS cream. So today I did a search and found TOBS on Amazon Prime. I didn't find the cedar but bought some sandalwood and a cream titled: Court Hairdressers. The description on Amazon says: "Revitalizing fresh citrus traces blend vigorously with the sophistication and ruggedness of precious cedar and oak woods" Now that bit of puffery sounded to good to pass up. Has anyone here heard of the stuff? Maybe I'll post a review when it comes in..

Cedarwood was in todays mail, but I didnt open postbox until after I had already shaved :cry: Anyway, just dropping in to say that the scent is *very* nice....similar to AoS ocean kelp(??) Looking forward to giving it a whirl later this week

Sorry guys, my package from Amazon arrived today and the TOBS Hair Dresser cream arrived leaking. Got on the outside of the jar and the inside of the box. I am sending it back. Hope they package it better next time. Funny, the Sandalwood came from a different vendor and was packaged in a zip lock bag and didn't leak.

Hi Pete. I buy cucina hand soap from amazon all the time because of the price, but at least every 3rd shipment has to be returned because of leaks....PITA!!!!!!!!!!!! nothing worse than having to send something back because of bad packaging

Got my tub of TOBS Cedarwood cream today. Took a second shower and decided to shave my two day old beard. As usual this new cream from TOBS worked wonders. Easy to lather, nice glide did not take a ton of cream to get the job done. Only disappointment is the scent. Not a really strong scent. I like a somewhat strong one. Still not bad. No sad I bought the cream and hope that it may grow on me. Wife liked it but she too thought it was a mild scent. I found this to be true with TOBS Almond cream. Nice scent but too mild especially compared to C&E Sweet Almond Oil cream.

An update on my TOBS Cedarwood cream. I spoke too soon. Stuff is really good when the shaving part is concerned as I said above but now the scent thing is coming around too. So I would give this a 9.5 on a scale of 10.

Today's shave with the TOBS Cedarwood cream was outstanding.

FYI I noticed that this cream is now available on Amazon for about $17. If I didn't already have about 30 creams/soaps I'd probably pull the trigger!

Following up --- I've used the TOBS Cedarwood for the past two days. Right now it's a candidate for my next product that gets used every day until it's all gone. Can't say for sure, but it's an outstanding fragrance in an outstanding shaving cream.
