Basil, I've been curious about the scent of this shaving cream. What's your impression? Is this the one that comes only in the giant tube?

Gary, I'm terrible at describing scents but, I don't get much wood. I get a nice spicy and maybe a bit of floral scent. I find it quite pleasing and it lasts well throughout the shave. I use the Clubman Whiskey Woods A/S with it and think it goes well.

Yes, it comes in the big tube. When I bought mine, I squeezed out enough to fill an old Trumper tub and gave the rest of the tube to a buddy. It's a lot of cream for the money. The cream is unlike any of the other Proraso creams I have used. The texture is very different. It's quite thick and sticky. I lather it in a bowl, about a walnut size amount. It lathers easily and produces a lot of great lather. It really is good stuff. At some point, I'll probably try another of their scents.
Best regards,

Basil

Thanks Basil. I was wondering about the texture being different than the standard mentholated Proraso we are all so familiar with.

This morning I cracked a tub of re-formulated Body Shop Maca Root shaving cream. It’s as good as ever. One of the best deals available.

Farewell to the lovely Morning Ghost vetiver from CRSW. Rotated out of service today until May 21, 2020. It's a pleasure to use such a nicely scented and high performing shaving soap.
