Bullgoose Shaving Supplies was fortunate enough to secure a large shipment of this very hard to find premium shaving cream. Presented in a heavy glass bowl, St. James of London Founders Reserve Shaving Cream oozes class. It whips up into a rich creamy lather that is ultra slick and the skin conditioning properties are out of this world. I have been using this cream myself for the past several weeks and I love the stuff!

Like a fine vintage wine, St James shave cream formulations are matured for longer in their barrels, promoting and enriching their moisturizing properties. The warm mineral notes of Spicy Pepper sweetened with Bay Rose, Geranium and Patchouli wrapped round Atlas Cedar to enhance the earthiness will give you a soothing shave. Free from Alcohol, SLES & Parabens.

150mL / 5.07 FL. OZ.

Made in England

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Stearic Acid, Myristic Acid, Potasium Hydroxide, Coconut Acid, Glycerin, Parfum, Triethanolamine,Limnanthes Alba (Meadowform) Seed Oil, Vaccinium Macrocarbon (Cranberry) Seed Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Prunus Amygdalus (Swet Almond) Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Limonene, Hydroxycitronellal, Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linjalool, Butylphenyl Methylpropional

I've read great reviews for this cream. If I'm not mistaken it is made by Creighton's in the same factory as the three T's.
The Cedarwood & Clarysage at Bullgoose is (as you would expect) for use with a brush, while their Mandarin & Patchouli is a brushless cream.

The scent as been described in one review as "the manifestation of manliness." More usefully as a deep warm woodiness, mingling sage and a dry down to a sweet, pleasant musk. What's your take on the scent Freddy?

For me, that about nails it. It is definitely a masculine scent that is a great start to an early morning shave.

The AG cream is one of my favorites , Tieste. I really like the scent, and the cushion is more soaplike than creamlike IMHO. Not a fluffy one at all.

Looking forward to trying this St James cream too Biggrin

I would say not! Eric's SOTD pic tonight had me start looking for this

Now is it a soft cream or a harder cream? I have been getting away from soft creams lately, but I really like the container! Cool

It's a lovely soft cream. And I am no real fan of soft creams unless they are exceptionally good. I'ts like TOBs or GFT Super creamy Biggrin

The jar is a nice heavy glass affair with a metal lid.

Gentlemen,
This is a superb cream. I had used it some years ago and then it was not available. Good show, Phil, for offering it.
