Cyril R Salter has been bringing grooming products to the masses since the 1940s. They are a leading importer, exporter, and distributor of some of wet shavings most loved brands, as well as their own branded products. 

This luxury shaving cream is a staple of their line-up. It is a vegan recipe with no animal-derived ingredients. Loaded with vitamin E and glycerine, it whips up a protective, slick lather that nourishes your skin. Use a traditional shaving brush to produce a rich, superior lather from just a dollop of cream.

  • Classic Almond: Scented with sweet almond oil, this cream is sure to please with this classic scent. 
  • Lime: This essential oil only fragrances is a refreshing pop of zesty lime. 
  • French Vetiver: Earthy, masculine vetiver takes the lead in this aroma.
  • Indian Sandalwood: Popular sandalwood provides the fragrance of this soft and subtle fragrance. 
  • Mint: High quality menthol oil is used for a vibrant pick-me-up in this mint aroma.
  • Sublime Citrus: Lemon, grapefruit, and a hint of orange hit all the right notes for a zesty, but delicate citrus fragrance.
  • Wild Rose: Rose has long been a traditional wet shaving fragrance, but Cyril R Salter has added geranium oil to intensify the floral note.

Sublime Citrus not enough scent

Sublime Citrus is a nice scent, but not strong enough compared to Wild Rose which is awesome and can perfume the whole room.

This is one of my favorite creams; excellent performance & I love the in-your-face smokey scent. Especially in winter.

Cyril R. Salter's French Vetiver luxury shaving Creme is superb!

I just received a container of Cyril R. Salter's French Vetiver luxury shaving Creme. Now I happen to love vetiver. But I hesitated to order this particular shaving creme because many (here and elsewhere) complained about the scent! Well, I respectfully suggest that they must have never actually smelled vetiver...... if this scent bothers them! Because this is what vetiver actually smells like!. Their dismay bordering on displeasure is comparable to someone that smelled a pumpkin spice scent mixed with a lavender scent, and then complained when they actually smell lavender alone that they do not like its scent. All I can say is that this is one extraordinarily great performing shaving creme, that smells heavenly if you love the scent of vetiver...... as I do. This product out performs many better known shaving cremes that cost three to four times the price. I highly recommend that any and all wet shavers try it...... especially those that actually dig vetiver for what vetiver is. Perhaps it's not for those that only know vetiver as one of several scents in blends that minimize vetiver's strong unique scent profile. But for those like me that love vetiver you cannot find a better vetiver shave creme..... anywhere! And for those that do not appreciate vetiver's unique scent, Salter has many other scent profiles based upon the same outstanding glycerine shaving creme base. Try one of them ..... you will be glad you did!

Really Great Stuff!

This is a Great Shaving Cream, as are all Cyril R Salter shave creams, lathers up easily, lot's of lather and has the needed slickness. This French Vetiver, especially, has an amazing scent, that is very hard to find anywhere else. A jar of this, will always be, in my Shaving Den.

Great performance, poor scent

After the best in class rating from Badger and Blade a few years back (for the Rose scent) I wanted to give this cream a try. I happen to love vetiver and decided to choose this version of the cream. I am quite disappointed with the scent. On opening the jar there is no scent, and after building a lather and applying it there was a mild smoky scent that was not at all appealing. The performance of the cream is excellent, however. I'll use up the jar, but I will not be purchasing another.
