Agree. DRH certainly has been better for me than AOS. I actually sold my AOS creams about a year ago. And while I've not used SMN in a long time, my Acqua di Parma cream is the best cream I've found, period. Pricey, but it is simply stellar. One cream that hasn't been mentioned that I would rank above AOS and probably even above DRH would be the Fitjar creams. Worth finding and nicely scented, too. (I admittedly have not tried, but would like to try, the Ethos cream since Frank Lipani makes good stuff.)D. R. Harris, Truefitt and Hill are as good or better, and of course Santa Maria Novella and Acqua di Parma are better, but if you think AoS is overpriced, don’t even look at those last two, even though either will last close to a year.
