C&E Almond Oil Shaving Cream....

Item Description

When my lovely lady presented me with this as a present for X-MAS, I was shocked...

This is not the same product I remembered from C&E. It "used" to come in a drab box, with a jar identical to the 3 T's... nothing special. Now it comes in a gorgeous box worthy of displaying, in a GLASS jar... REALLY has a great overall appearance.

The Jar the cream comes in is simply gorgeous... well as far as shaving cream jars go :wink:

Now the serious business.... with all the fancy packaging and impressive jar, can the cream itself hold it's own?

A long answer made short.... yes. Not only is this shaving cream AS good as ANY of the 3T's.... it might be just a nudge superior, as it tends to leave your skin softer and provides a bit mroe protection than the "traditional" english shaving creams. My only gripe - which is not so much a "gripe" is the scent. It is not an "almond" scent - it is more of a cologne/perfume/natural scent of some kind, but it certainly is not almond. With that said - it is not so much a "gripe" because I happen to REALLY enjoy this scent. As far as scents go, everyone is different, but if you bury your nose in this cream, it is not going to give you the response you'd normally associate with almond.

I realize I'm in the minority, so maybe my tube was part of a bad batch but the smell from my C&E Almond Oil was what I can only describe as "sickly sweet". Reminiscent of my grandmother, and yet somehow it literally smelled like someone was sick recently :frown:. It built a wonderful lather, and I'm sure would have shaved nicely...if I could have stood the smell long enough to get through the shave. Alas was not to be...
this was a very wondefull cream check my posts for iam starting a patition to email C&E about this

I shaved with C&E Almond for 2-3 years. Then, about 10 years ago, they changed the formula completely, giving it a very nasty smell. Reminded me of driving past the oil refinery in Richmond, California. So I switched to DR Harris Almond, and then to Trumpers, which is now my main cream. Maybe the C&E has improved, plus smell is personal/subjective, but I advise everyone to take a deep sniff before buying this stuff.
