WCS Midnight Collection Razor 175B, Black Stainless Steel Closed Comb Ma first razor of the WCS Midnight Collection (the other being the 84B open comb). The head is mild, comfortable and still efficient enough for me. The handle is very heavy, the heaviest of all my razors. Once I got used to it, it's great though. Excellent grip.

West Coast Shaving, Shaving Soap, Ocean This lathers up just fine. Gives a nice close shave. The smell is there, just subtle. I do think it's a bit pricey for the size.

Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Cream Sample Pack This package is great if you are unsure of what TOBS scent you want. You can get 3-4 shaves out of each sample you chose.

West Coast Shaving, Shaving Soap, Ocean I’ve used the same shaving soap/prep for years, I don’t like to change what works??. However, I bought the Ocean scented shaving soap. A few days later I simply washed and shaved with this new soap from West Coast. A great smooth shave, a clean smell and feel. Better still, I did NOT use my usual oil prep. Have shaved daily using the shaving soap only and now the only shaving soap I will use.

Tour de Taylor

Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Cream Sample Pack I went through this sampler a couple of times, made notes and over-organized my conclusions...enjoy!



First of all, I don't think there is any difference in lather or viscosity from scent to scent. Each sample was in a small jar, but a little goes a long ways and you can get 3 passes 4 - 5 times from each sample.



Just judging as a shaving cream, I really like this stuff and I've ordered a couple of tubes. More lather than I get with something like Prostro and they all feel soft and creamy. I will say, one of the reasons I wanted to try this is so that I could pair an aftershave with a shave cream, but it turns out that most of these are not available or are out of stock as an aftershave...which is too bad. Overall, I do dig this line and will probably always keep some around.



Regarding scent, it's personal and my preferences may have nothing to do with yours. But, here are my impressions:



The woods:

Not really my pallate, but I did like the cedarwood much better than the sandlewood. Reminded me a bit of my dad, which is always a good thing. Probably better for fall/winter than spring/summer, but honestly, just not what I'm going for.



The botanicals:

Rose...is interesting. Reminds me of how girls smelled in jr. high school, but somehow it wasn't bad. Strong in the jar, more pleasant lathered in your bowl and pretty subtle lingering on your skin. Not for me.



Almond is nice, but I have used almonds that I liked better, like Cella.



Lavendar is the big winner in this grouping for me. Smells like my lavender hedge, not like lavender purfume. I've ordered a tube of it and it will pair nicely, I think with Pre de Province aftershave or anything neutral and spring like.



Citrus /Fruits-

Grapefruit was the winner in this group for me. Smells like grapefruit, which is nice in the morning. Very natural, envigorating.



Lemon/Lime - To me, it didn't smell like lemons or limes. Maybe like Safeway brand lemon/lime soda. Nothing appealing for me.



Avocado - Nice, not totally natural smelling. Kind of like Avocado perfume or something. I think I might like an avocado shave cream, but not this one.



Coconut - I love coconut, but didn't really like this. Dont' think it really smelled that much like coconut either. Odd.

Colognes

Mr. Taylor is the winner here for me. Fresh linen, clean, start of baseball season when I was a kid. I've ordered a tube and regret that the aftershave is out of stock.



Eton College is nice. A bit flowery. Would be good for a summer wedding or christening Judge Schmals yacht. Not quite my jam.



St. James - Nice. I might have bought this cream if there had been an aftershave to match, but I don't think it would play well with others. Not too froofy, but does smell refined, mascaline and good.



Jermyn Street - Old money, perfumy, better on the brush than in the bowl, but too high class for me.



Natural - Smells, nice and neutral and clean. Like soap, would pair with anything. This is a fine choice if you want to try it to see if it works for you.



Again, my taste is likely different than yours, but these are my impressions. It's GREAT shaving cream and I'm looking forward to using it daily.
