Well - Still on the hunt for a really good LIME smell... This should probably not be labelled limes as it has a hint - But goes on very flowery and sweet. So NOT recommended if you are looking for a good solid lime smell. Lather is superb as usual.
Great lime fragrance, slick with a nice cushion. I pair it with Clubman ****** Island Bay Rum. Just like a trip to the Caribbean!!
I've tried many soaps and creams over the years. I've tried the old school ones and the new artisan types that are popping up like micro breweries. I have found the older types have given me a much better experience than the new ones. Out of all of them Geo F. Trumpers is hands down the best. I will be buying more scents in the very near future and will probably toss all of the artisan soaps I've bought. The proof is in the lather and smoothness of the shave. By far better than the rest!
I have been using Trumper's Limes Shaving Cream for about 20 years. With occasional exception, I've used it almost daily for most of that time, with both modern (two and three blades) and double edge safety razors. I've used it with a low-end boar brush, premium badger brushes, and most ecently with premium boar and premium badger brushes. The performance of this shaving cream gas been consistently outstanding. And despite my extreme sensitivity to smells, the lime scent was mild and not overpower over-powering. When it's time to make a gift of shaving cream, I routinely order a tub of Trumper's Limes. It delivers the smoothest, closest and most pleasant shave bar none. The one occasional negative likely is as due to some merchants as much as to the manufacturers: the product sometimes lacks sufficient interior wrapping so that it sometimes has arrived as dry as a soap cake rather than a cream. Fortunately, such has not been the case with thise ordered from West Coast Shaving and, in any event, can be resolved by adding some drops of water. I recommend this shaving cream without reservation.
I was first introduced to the Geo F Trumper shave cream back in 1992 or three at the then only Art of Shave Store on Madison Avenue in NYC. As a man with very sensitive skin and an aversion to shaving, this was god send. The smells are great, the cream is not oily, nor does it overly coat your face. I've bought this at the actual shop in London when I worked for an English company, and have had it shipped directly from England. I am very happy to see that you are carrying it now. I can't recommend this highly enough. Thanks David
