    What are your top three scents of shaving soaps and/or creams?
  2. 1) DR Harris Arlington cream 2) CF Lime (or Lavender), 3) Acqua di Parma, or DR Harris Rose cream.

  3. I have to make it a Top 5 :thumbup:

    1. Acqua Di Parma - essentually Acqua Di Parma Colonia in a shaving cream. Some thinks this smells fishy, I don't get that at all. I get a lovely old school barber shop smell mixed with an old school citrus scent.
    2. Castle Forbes Lime - even though the shaving performance and lather quality I get from both my CF's are actually no longer in my Top 10, the Lime scent in this is just phenomenal !
    3. Tie between AOS Lemon and AOS Sandalwood. The sandalwood is the best and most natural smelling and take on real sandalwood. The lemon scent is just lemon done right.
    4. Tie Between DR Harris Arlington and DR Harris Windsor. Arlington smells just great of smoky citrus, Windsor is grape fruit and vetiver, just like Terre D'Herm├ęs fragrance.
    5. Tie Between Penhaligon Opus 1870 and Penhaligon Blenheims Bouquet. Blenheims Bouquet is just a nice old school spicy citrus and Opus 1870 is a sour sandalwood mixed with pepper and a rose note. Great stuff :001_wub:

    Worthy of mention: Proraso Red, Speick, AOS Lavender & CF Lavender, TOBS Jermyn Street, TF&H 1850, TF&H Grafton and Acca Kappa 1869.
