Taylor of Old Bond Street Creams & Soaps Reviews
Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Cream Bowl, Lavender I tried the sample pack and Lavender does it for me....
Another Classic for TOBS
Taylor of Old Bond Street Platinum Collection Shaving Cream Fantastic new shaving cream from Taylor of Old Bond Street, soon to be a classic like their always hard to get Sandalwood cream.

Lather up rich and thick very easily, has a great scent and leaves the skin feeling great after providing a super slick shave.

Another great point is you only need to use a small amount for a thick lather so it will last a while.
Great for deciding what cream you want
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.
TOBS is always a good buy!!
Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Cream Bowl, Eton College This lathers like all the other TOBS creams I have used. Slick, cushiony awesomeness. This particular scent is awesome, too! Refined and just strong enough. A little citrusy, but very masculine in a gentlemanly way. I've never been disappointed with a TOBS product, and this one is no different.
Taylor of Olde Bond Street Luxury Soap
Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Soap Refill, Jermyn St. Good lather on this soap. Lots of cushion. Let it set on the beard for a few minutes, don't rush it and it does a fantastic job. Nice clean smell.
Very Ivy League
Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Cream Bowl, Eton College I have a number of TOBS creams, and as with other cats on here, haven't been disappointed with any yet.

Eton College has a fresh, yet sophisticated scent. Really like it, and use it frequently.

Haven't indulged the matching aftershave yet...but I will.
Maybe Just not for Me
Taylor of Old Bond Street Shaving Soap in Bowl, Sandalwood 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 prostitute, 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.
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: 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.


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.
