Decided to go with the shavemac. It has been a bit lonely.

So how is it?

Decent Almond Scent, but not as strong or enjoyable as Taylors Almond, great lather, and a great shave.

This is both my favourite Trumper cream and my favourite almond scented cream.

A permanent staple in my rotation, a great shave every time.

Another from the sample set. One of the thicker lathering creams I have tried, with nice cushion and a strong, sweet marzipan smell. I was surprised to enjoy the scent as much as I did. Easy to lather and not drying at all. I don't know if I love this enough to buy the full size, but it's up for consideration.

I received GFT Almond Cream (in the tube) for the holidays, and the light sweet almond scent took some getting used to, but I am starting to enjoy it more each time. I think this is a great work-place scent, its not overbearing at all, and its just very pleasant - nothing too musky or intense. Its also good for mixing with a variety of woody or spicy colognes/aftershaves, because the cream itself has a subtle scent.

Personally, I think the latherability is the same as T&H (my preferred creams) but the moisturizing properties are greater with this cream. Since I have oily skin to begin with that's kind of unnecessary for me, but to each his own.

I would definitely recommend the Almond cream as a year-round, work-day scent.
