Taylor's Rose shaving cream is a top product in my books. I simply cannot imagine this cream ever leaving the rotation. Certainly there is some sentimental attraction as this was the first English cream that I ever owned, but this stuff is nice.
Scent - In a word, magnificent. If you don't like rose scents then you would obviously disagree with this statement, but if you do, stop reading and go buy some now.
Latherability - Like Taylor's Avocado, this lather from this cream is superb. It explodes off of the brush, allowing a small amount of cream to make enough lather for many passes.
Moisturizing Properties - This cream is known for is skincare benefits. With a lesser product, I can find my face fairly dry by the end of a workday, but not with the Rose.
Packaging - As I have stated before, there is nothing regal or special about Taylor's packaging. It is a PVC tub, no more and no less. At first I was a little disappointed with this presentation, however, I imagine that this is one of the compromises for keeping the price low.
Quality / Efficacy - Taylor's Rose is the shaving cream of kings. It definitely lives up to its reputation as a high-end cream.
This is the only cream I've used that can regularly compete with Taylor's Avocado for top spot.
