Smells fantastic, shaves well
I'm not experienced enough to review this cream against any other cream or soap for utility, but it works with my face and razor and synthetic brush. It smells fantastic as well. Light and neither masculine nor feminine; slightly citrus, slightly floral, slightly woody. I was concerned about the sort of vague explanations about the scent, that perhaps it would be perfumey, but its not. I have not smelled tons of creams so I have not much to peg against, but this one in particular is great. A+
Love the scent and it lathers so easily. My go to shave cream.
A dependable favorite
I'd used Taylor of Old Bond Street forever and loved it. I thought I would branch out and and try something new so I bought a different, well-reviewed shave cream. I only made it about a week before I had to go back to this for the great shave I was used to. I was a little tired of the sandalwood, though, so this scent is a welcome change. Great stuff.
Smooth. Easy to Achieve Correct Lather Consistency
I have been a loyal Crown buyer for several years now. I decided to give TOBS Eton a try based on the reviews I read. Taylor's delivers a very smooth, thick lather that I find easier to achieve over Crown's. The lather delivers both good protection and a close shave. I can honestly say that this is the best cream I've ever used. The scent from the tub is a little strange...almost has hints of a woman's perfume. However, not to worry. The finished product along with a splash of the TOBS Eton aftershave leaves me quite pleased. I would definitely buy TOBS again.
Been eyeing this shaving cream for a while, as my SO is a fan of TOBS products and I wanted to get him a scent I picked out. There are no retail shops near me that sell these products, so I ordered Eton College purely based on the description. It is honestly even better than I expected - I love how it is not overly masculine and has a hint of sweetness to it. The strength of the scent is just right - not overpowering at all, which I find is my main issue with other men's colognes and soaps. Overall it is perfect for a gentleman of class who has an old-fashioned way about him :)
