    Can you comment on Spanish Leather and Eucris? I’m interested in both.
  3. Spanish Leather has rose, spice, vanilla, patchouli and sandalwood. Somewhat reminds me of Cussons Imperial Leather (hand/body) soap.

    Eucris is dark and complex; includes sandalwood, oakmoss, musk, spice, fruit, flower, green element...

    Shulton Old Spice
    TOBS St. James
    Coate’s Tea Tree

  6. Surprised no one mentioned godrej menthol. This thing is my holy grail.

    Is it the scent or the performance?

    Performance for all of Penhaligon's creams is excellent. I prefer Endymion's scent over all others.

    Have you seen Sohan or Halfeti?

    No, but I haven't gone looking for them either. The base formula for the creams performs very well. If you like the scents, I expect that a cream based on those scents would be very good indeed.

    Those seem to be my favorite of the group that I’ve sampled.
  13. When did proraso red get discontinued?
  14. I've only used Cremo so far so that's my sole entry.
  15. Trumpes rose or violet.
    Taylor's rose or lavender.

    For budget creams, nivea in the blue tube.
  16. I really like, in no particular order,

    - Cyril Salter Almond

    - Hemingway Accoutrements

    - Castle Forbes Lime


    - Antica Barbieria Colla

    - Speick

    - Santa Maria Novella

    I don’t think I have any other creams...the rest are soaps!
