Some rare vintage Penhaligon's shaving creams arrived today, wrapped nicely in Pen's gift paper. They have dehydrated over the years to the consistency of a thick paste, but they smell marvelous. I'm looking forward to adding them to the rotation.

Very nice, John.

These are difficult to find, I would imagine.

Nice score....I've just been trying to find someone who still carries the bb tub with polished stainless lid ( not nearly as old as these). Anyone know where one might be able to find one?

Ah, you scored a Hammam Bouquet. I've been looking for the soap for awhile.

I used the English Fern for the first time this morning, and it was as good as any modern cream I have used. In addition to the wonderful scent, it easily produced thick, slick lather.
Life can be very good....

Today I used the matching Hammam Bouquet shaving cream. While I am not quite as fond of its scent as that of the English Fern, it actually seemed to lather even a little better - truly wondrous lather with no effort at all.
