JAYDEE steered me towards the Bulgarian creams a while back(thanks Jeff!). I now have three: Nuka, Compass Ice Energy, and now Rose of Bulgaria.

I used the Rose of Bulgaria cream for the first time today. It was excellent. A small dollop and I had enough for 4-passes had I wanted to. The rose scent is clean and fresh and not overpowering. I know JAYDEE is not a fan of the scent though. I could not detect the menthol…no big deal. It produced a great thick, slick, cushioning lather.

I need to try Rose of Bulgaria. Recently I've been using both Figaro and Barbon and they really are terrific shave creams with pleasant scents and wonderful performance.

I do like Rose scented creams. GFT is great and Mike's Rose & Cedarwood is awesome. I thought I'd give this Bulgarian rose a try.

I hated it.

The performance was nothing more than adequate, definitely not in same league with GFT or even NIvea. I couldn't stand the smell. Very little rose and a lot of something that reminded me Mrs Albini's store, a parfurm/little old lady's gear place that my gradmother used to meet her lady friends and drag me alone when i was 4... like some very old fashioned hand cream.

So.....I guess you won't be getting any more? Biggrin

I don't think I have "hated" any soap I have tried.

YMMV is a wonderful thing.

I was not super impressed. Couldn't detect much scent and it was an OK performer. Now the figaro I like because it has a foamy lather
