Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Soap in Bowl, Sandalwood

11 reviews |
SKU SS-TAY-01050
  • Exceptional quality shaving soap
  • Sandalwood scented
  • In a reusable bowl

One of the great things about high quality products is that they are oftentimes reusable. The Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Soap in a Bowl, Sandalwood uses essential oils to produce the fragrance, which goes a long way toward making certain that it doesn't smell cheap and sharp. It smells subtle, elegant, gentlemanly, and slightly woodsy making it a good choice for people who really like to do things the old-fashioned way.

Products such as these can make grooming a lot easier for men who have trouble with sensitive skin or other issues. Because many of the products that are used for grooming by men who really care about the quality of their experience do require maintenance, be sure you take a look at some of the supplies we have available for that purpose. For example, using this product with a straight razor can give you an incredibly close result, if only you use a strop to keep the edge keen and to ensure that you are not dragging chipped, folded, and otherwise damaged steel across your face. Take the time, and you will be very happy with the results, and you'll look great!

Great soap, bowl is somewhat small

I've enjoyed using this soap. It creates a good lather and has a great scent. However, the bowl is a bit too small. Unless you really control the movement you can end up having lather go over the sides. I wouldn't say that it's a deal breaker but it's mildly inconvenient. Since the soap itself is so good I'd still recommend trying it if you're interested.

Maybe Just not for Me

I love the sandalwood sent, not too strong but, nice, subtle and classy. Lathers ok, but nothing to get excited about. The shave? Nothing offensive but, nothing to remember. I don't mind the soap generally but, it gave me a nasty rash on my chin and cheeks. Maybe I am allergic. to it. I am looking for something else to try. I have tried the "Art of Shaving" sandalwood and it makes me smell like a **********, no subtlety there, yuck!...No class. I will give my beard a break and try Bond again to see if I get a reaction. Great scent.


Great soap

This was my first purchase from WCS and they were awesome, super fast and easy to deal with. I will be a return customer for sure. The Taylor of Old soap is great, at first smell it is very strong but once you whip up a nice lather with it, it just fills the room with a great sadlewood smell. You can smell it on you for a good portion of the day and not in an over bearing way but in a good manly way. At the same time I purchased the Edwin Jagger sadlewood and it is not strong at all, the scent can hardly be noticed shortly after shaving with it. The Taylor brand is the better of the two in my opinion.

Great Smell, Average Lather

Great smell, but produces a rather thin to moderate lather unless you really load it up. Lather will whip up but it takes more time and patience. Lather is moderately slick, but much less cushioning than Mitchell's Wool Fat. Washes away easily and leaves my skin smooth. No drying.
