JM Fraser's Oriental Spice

Item Description

I received this as a sample and immediately fell in love with the cream. The second you open it, you're hit with the unmistakable scent of Booster's Oriental Spice. The folks at Fraser's got this one absolutely right.

Ok, it smells great. How does it shave? It shaves like it's bigger Fraser brothers. It whips up a great lather in no time. One of the first shaves with the new B&BE was with this cream. It quickly whipped up a rich white cream that was more than enough for three passes.

It lasts a good long time on the face, and I could even pass the razor over spots without cream and it was still slick.

In short, this cream smells great, lathers great, and works out to be about half the cost of TOBS considering the size differential.

The packaging, like Fraser's and Booster's is rather plain and nothing fancy, but it gets the job done.

Latest reviews

the problem with all Fraser's product is that the container size is misleading.

A large tub at a very reasonable price makes it all too easy to use too much cream.

The slightest of dabs will generate uberlather on your face or bowl. This tub should outlast any puck on the market given how little you really need to use.
This stuff can outclass creams that cost 2 or 3 times as much. The performance is every bit as good as the more expensive English creams and delivers quality that you should not be able to buy for only ten bucks! I even love the rudimentary plastic tub that won't break if dropped by wet hands, doesn't increase cost like some of the more expensive jars and works great for storing nuts and bolts at you workbench after words! You must try this stuff.

Note: Elements of this review have been recycled from my Fraser's Classic one. If I accidentally left in any elements that cause confusion, my apologies.

Price: When you can get 235 ml of a quality cream for $11, you know you found a deal.
Quality: The cream lathers very well and results in a slick experience. Oh, and the already great value is even better: You only need a small amount to get results.
Scent: Here's where the Oriental Spice moves ahead of Fraser's Classic cream. The warm, cinnamon aroma hangs around and is reminiscent of the winter seasons (at least for me).
Latherability: Whips easily and applies very well.
Efficacy: The container boldly states, "Softens tough beards" and Fraser's delivers. I received everything I expected from this product.
Moisturizing Properties: Even after the first pass, I notice a distinct change in my skin. It feels like there's a soft coating over it and this sensation lasts for hours. Pair it with an aftershave and you're enjoying soft skin even 24 hours later.
Packaging: It's a white, utilitarian container with coloured font. The cap seals tight and holds in the cream so I give it a middle-of-the-road grade. Trust me -- you don't buy Fraser's for the look of it on your shelf.
