This is excellent shave cream.
I also have Taylor rose cream,D.R. Harris Arlington hard shave soap,Tabac hard soap. This I find better than all the above.D.R. Harris would be second.Will be buying more
when i need to.Wanna try the Trumper hard shave soap next.
These soaps will last forever. Especially when u have several choices. Then u never seem to get anywhere near using up any of 'em. Happy shaving!

For whatever reason (you can blame it on technique, although this is the only cream I experience this with) I have a hard time finding a good balance to the lather. Either too much water making it soupy or not enough making it too creamy.
And I would have to agree with another review that this product does not have a very pleasant smell. Not quite dirty ashtray to me (although I get the comparison) but definitely not even close to anything sandalwood I ever smelled.
In summary: my morning shaving ritual (that I relish now and look forward to since I've joined the world of wet shaving) is greatly diminished by the use of this product. Would not recommend it at all
