I want to get a couple of creams in floral scents. I'm pretty much set on soaps. Which reminds me, off topic, I received and used my first puck of Tabac ever. WOW! also I picked up three samples of Mystic Waters soaps. WOW!, Back to topic, I'd like to hear opinions on aforementioned creams from my learned colleagues here.
I'm leaning towards Trumpers but I don't have enough experience to rate them against others.

Well I'm a soap guyWink But there are two floral creams that I really love.
Trumpers Violet and Rose of Bulgaria.

Stay as far from Trumpers soap as you possibly can. It's so bad that if you bring one in the house it could prevent your other soaps from lathering.

TOBS Rose is a really nice cream. It lathers well, smells nice, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

If it's like the Grapefruit in lather quality then it gives up nothing to any English creams I have tried. And like you say it really is a good bargain!

The Grapefruit is superb if you like the smell of grapefruit.

TOBS, Lavender. I got this for my son as that I do not care much for floral scents but I must say I had to try it and I liked it a lot. If it helps I picked this jar up for under 10 bucks so it was a really good deal on a great soap

Tabula Rasa in the Light Cream scent is a very light floral with a hint of cream...it's a lovely scent and a great performer!

DR Harris Rose is also a wonderful cream as long as your water is not too hard. repeated use will dye your brush pink, though...

Trumper Violet, & Rose creams are very good as well, but I echo that the soaps are horrible at present!

Taylor Rose is the least expensive British and is a fantastic performer.

Though not your typical floral, I like the Body Shoppe offering of Maca Root - it has a hint of Passion Flower scent and is very alluring, plus it's an exceptional performer all around.

TOBS Avocado...Awesome cream w/excellent floral scent. Not sure if the scent resembles an avocado tree's? But I would certainly describe it as medium strength scent, bright and floral.

In my opinion you can't go wrong with Trumper's or TOBS creams. I have used all the ones recommended below.

Trumper's Rose, and Violet. While not floral, the coconut is a solid performing cream with a great scent.

TOBS Rose & Lavender

Truefitt & Hill Ultimate Comfort Shaving Cream still smells like lavendar, even though it claims to be "unscented."

Cedar &Sage, Wild Lavender and something call Maelstrale? I gave that last one a try yesterday.I got a great shave but the lather was lousy. Kind of like sea-foamy.
