Try a cream from Taylor's of Old Bond Street. I've used their creams for years and they are excellent and very good value for a high end cream. GF Trumper also make good creams.

I agree. You can get either Taylors or Trumpers for your 25 dollars. Both are very good creams. I especially like Trumpers Rose and Taylor Coconut.
Best regards,

I echo the classic English brands; don't forget DRH.

In addition to all of the above which are very good, I also recommend Nancy Boy shaving cream. My favorite scent is Signature.

Do you like the smell of a grove of Eucalyptus trees? If so, I suggest D R Harris Eucalyptus cream.

Do you enjoy the smell of a lumberyard? If so, I suggest Taylor of Old Bond Street's Cedarwood cream.

Trumper Violet doesn't irritate my very sensitive skin. Love this stiff! If I'm going to read tiger rice cooker review, do I really want to buy it?

Hi Randal. Welcome to SMF!

As I have posted elsewhere, I strongly recommend Taylor of Old Bond Street (TOBS) and Art of Shaving (AOS) shaving creams in the fragrance of your choice.
