    I’ve been looking for a cheaper alternative to Geo. F. Trumpers sandalwood shaving cream, which has become my gold standard. Taylor of Old Bond street was considerably cheaper, so I decided to give it a try.

    The immediate difference I noticed was the strength and quality of the sandalwood fragrance. It’s too highly scented for me, and neither is it as pleasant a scent as Trumpers. Whereas Trumpers leaves a hint of fragrance behind after a shave and a wipe-down with a wash-cloth, I find that Taylor leaves behind an “aftershave” level of fragrance, which is more than I prefer. Also, the scent is a sharper, more artificial smell that brings to my mind a dryer anti-static sheet, not something I’d want to smell like. I don’t have any allergies to fragrances, so this is purely a preference thing, and I had no bad reactions to the scent.

    It lathers up nicely. I dare say, slightly better than Trumpers. Taylor seems to be a drier formulation, but I had no trouble getting an appropriate amount on my badger-hair brush, and getting a good coating on my face.

    It shaves well. I’ve had no problems getting a close shave with it.

    However, whereas Trumpers seems to leave behind a bit of oils on my skin for a nice moisturizing effect, Taylor leaves my skin feeling drier. As I have naturally dry skin, Trumpers works better for me in this regard, but I can believe someone with oilier skin would appreciate Taylor’s more soap-like effect.

    It’s a good product, and I would frankly probably switch to it for the cheaper price, but I really can’t stand the heavier scent of it, unfortunately.

    This product whips up an amazing lather, and it smells excellent. It has that kind of mystical old fashioned barbershop type smell, clean, manly, sophisticated.
    It also leaves the skin soft and supple without any of the burn that the minty type oils tend to give.
    This product ends the quest for the best, yet paradoxically most economical, shaving lather I have found. This tub lasts forever…

    I have been using Taylor of Old Bond Street creams for about 4 years now and love the way they lather and shave! I usually use a brush but even just lathering up in the palm of my hand with my fingers this cream works wonderfully–far better than the mass-market gels and creams you buy at the grocery store.

    This is, by far, my favorite scent Taylor offers, it makes my mornings so much more enjoyable!
