I agree. TOBS is my go-to. Every single 'flavor' has had great results so its nice to be able to spice things up while remaining consistent. Im currently working through some Sandalwood & an Almond, but when these run out I'll probably pick up Mr Taylor(For the 20th? time... my favorite!! Ive been craving it) and Rose.
Just got my sampler from Garry. I'm excited to try each one over the next few weeks! Yesterday was Avocado. Indeed, it's a great cream, but the scent left something to be desired (compared to the sandalwood)
Anyone have any idea what the shelf life is on TOBS? I bought two tubs last time I was in London. Unfortunately that was a bit over two years ago. I am just now using the almond I bought then, and it seems fine, but I am not sure how I would know what changed. From my recollection, I don't remember it being different when I bought it, if anything maybe a bit lighter, like more 'whipped'. Either way, big fan of TOBS in any scent though I prefer the Jermyn street and I always like lavender.
I was introduced to Mr. Taylor's today. It was my first time using TOBS and a cream soap to boot. I must say face lathering was so easy I felt like I was cheating. Loaded my brush once and had more than enough for 3 passes. There is no hocus pocus with this soap.
