This is the best shaving cream I've ever used --- there's no comparison to the stuff that comes out of a can. It's warm, creamy, smooth, smells great, doesn't get all over your hands, and of course, works well as a lubricant for the razor. To counter one of the other reviews, I prefer the lavender scent (which comes from actual lavender essential oils rather than some synthetic petrochemical). You need only a very small amount --- a single tub probably lasts me for 6 months of every-other-day shaving.

You'll also need a good badger shaving brush. Don't skimp on the brush --- the cheaper brushes are too limp to really develop a good lather, and won't dry out overnight. I actually couldn't find a really good brush listed on Amazon, but they're available elsewhere. The Vulfix "Super Badger" brushes (in the $50-$75 range) will work fine, but it's also worth the extra money to go for for "silvertip" badger bristle, I have a Rooney, which cost something like $100 (midrange for a high-quality shaving brush). A good brush should last for decades, though. Also, it might take a few tries to be able to judge how wet the brush should be when you make the lather. Too much water and the lather is too thin, too little water and the result is too stiff. Fill your mug with very hot water, swish the brush around in it, then dump all the water out of the mug and shake the excess water out of the brush. Pick up a very small swipe of cream with the brush, then stir the cream around in the mug until the foam gets thick. The trick is learning how much water to leave in the brush when you shake it. You want it somewhere in between dripping and dry. I use a small ceramic rice bowl for a "mug," but any really-large mug (or small bowl) will do. It should be ceramic so that it will hold the heat, however.

It must have been last August when I tried a sample of Taylor of Old Bond Street shaving cream.

Since my order it's been one of my personal favorites, and I would say a must have for any wet shaver be it straight blade or a DE safety razor whose looking for an exceptional shave experiance.

I first chose, with some trepidation the rose scent.

I thought I might end up smelling like someone's great granny - or worse, a funeral parlor all day long.

But in reading about the product itself as well as the scent both date back to 1850's. For any product to last that long I surmised it just had to be worth a try.

First off, the scent is delicious. A little strong at first but not overpowering or cloying - fresh and fragrant.

It lingers for a while but fades quickly and if there's anything to this aroma therapy business - it's abundantly clear in how relaxing the rose scent is.

The first thing I noticed was how heavy this little tub of shave cream was, it's the densest shave cream I've ever used. It's so incredibly lush and thick you only need a tiny bit (the size of a small almond) to produce a great volume of lather.

There's nothing 'soapy" about the cream and it glides over your face with ease - I use a shaving brush to work up a lather and find just using this tiny bit is more than enough for two full latherings.

The cream provides a drag and nick free shave. It softens the whiskers so much that the blade has no trouble making mincemeat out of them. Afterwards your skin feels refreshed and supple without any dryness whatsoever.

Taylor of Old Bond Street is one of those little luxuries I think anyone would enjoy. I personally love the rose scent but the Lavender is equally intoxicating. None of the TOB scents are clingy or heavy and they fade quickly.

I have always had at least minor irritation from shaving, and I never found a razor that I truly liked despite having tried all kinds of Mach 3, Quattro, Fusion, etc. multiple-blade razors. I decided to give a try going back to safety razor shaving after having read lots of blogs about how much better it was than standard disposable offerings from the drug store.

I bought a cheap safety razor to get started, and bought some Israeli blades from Ebay (with a reputation as being "the best" all around blades). No matter what I did, something was never right and I was constantly tearing my face up and leaving more blood dripping than I've ever had before with a disposable razor. I knew there was something I wasn't doing right, so I put the last essential items in place by ordering a Parker badger hair brush and this Lavender shave cream from Amazon.

THIS IS WHAT THE PROBLEM WAS - JUNK SHAVE CREAM! All I can say for a simple recommendation is for men to THROW AWAY all the gel goop that you are buying from CVS or Walgreens. All that shave cream from a can is complete GARBAGE compared to this stuff. I'm certainly no professional at shaving, but I managed to use the badger brush to take a dime-sized dab of cream from the pot and lather it into a decent volume of cream. Putting this stuff on my face was great aromatherapy and it 100% smoothed out my shaving. With a new blade in the razor I got one of the best shaves I've ever had with ZERO cuts on my face. There were a couple times when the cream would dry out a bit but all I had to do was take a small dab of water from the sink on the tip of the brush to wet my face again and it was perfect again.
