Truefitt and Hill 1805

Item Description

You can look at my review of T&H Trafalgar for the detail on the packaging, etc. As for 1805, this is a very fresh scent in the "oceanic" mold. No, you won't smell like seaweed, rotting crabs, and sweaty, coppertone-laden, half-naked men. It is a citrusy, clean scent that is great for spring and summer. Basenotes lists it as:

Top Notes
Bergamot, Mandarin

Middle Notes
Cypress, Cardamom, Nutmeg

Base Notes
Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Musk

This is a scent that is never overpowering, and is appreciated by many. There are other scents that are similar, including Aqua di' Gio and others. For me, though, 1805 will always have a place of pride in my shave den. Is it glaringly original? Not at all. Is it a really nice scent? Damn yes.

Got a sample of this from T&H. Of course it smells just like the SC which is a great scent for a SC due to the fact it has a nice clean smell. Yes, like fresh laundry. But for a cologne?....naahh Way to soapy smelling for a cologne.

The staying power of T&H colognes really suck. There is way to much alcohol in them and the scents fade quickly. This is not just my opinion but that of others I have had smell them on me. I'm lucky if the scent lasts more than an hour. I have even tried putting a non-scented moisturizer on prior to applying on my neck, wrists and back of ears and still....the scent fades away quickly.

As far as price.....I cannot see paying $60 USD for this. That is crazy! There is no way in hell this cologne warrants the price of $60 USD.....another reason I rank this low. I'll save my money and buy the pure oils (which are no comparison):c13: instead of heavily loaded alcohol colognes that are overpriced.

1805 is a really nice light scent. As with all T&H products the quality and packaging are top notch. Due to the light nature of 1805 it layers very well with the shaving cream and aftershave balm without being overwhelming. Personally, the scent is a little too understated for everyday use but scent is a personal thing so don't let me dissuade you if you like it.

SWMBO insists I wear the Acqua Di Gio only. I bought this and she does not mind it.
The scent is great. Very clean. Not musky.
Unlike WIL, 1805 stays smelling good for hours.
