For you TOBS fans, what are some of the favorite cream scents? Tried Sandalwood, Avocado, Grapefruit, Mr. Taylor and Almond. Looking for some other good scent suggestions.

My favourite TOBS used to be the Rose (I love rose scented shave creams), but I was always concerned the rich colour might stain the tips of my brushes pink.

My current favourite TOBS, is their Grapefruit (as it's quite a point of difference to the other English creams on offer).

I'm terrible at describing scents, so here is the manufacturer's pitch: "An invigorating citrus accord opening with sun-ripened grapefruit and juicy orange enveloped in smooth floral and crisp green notes."

Eton College and Mr. Taylor's for me. Avocado is their best performing cream by FAR, but it smells pretty neutral.

I can only speak about the sandalwood and grapefruit. I like the former...love the latter.

The tubs last quite a long time too. I bought them last summer, have used them each on average twice a week, and I probably still have several weeks to go with each.

I have only used two, Sandlewood and Grapefruit.  I prefer the Sandlewood.  Has that man smell as my wife calls it.  The grapefruit scent is kinda faint.  I would be nicer if it was more intense.  Both are great creams!

Mr Taylor's. 

I bought a tub of Shaver Shop and it has NO scent. Must have been old stock. Not a bad lather but disappointed with the total lack of scent.

I recently read on a pretty reputable online source that TOBS is not manufactured by Creighton's… and that's the first I'd heard of that.  Trying to think of where it was???

I only own 8 TOBS creams.

My Top 5 scents:

1. Coconut, slightly better scent than GFT Coconuy IMHO, own both though
2. Grapefruit, very natural smelling
3. Peppermint, best true peppermint cream IMHO (even beats the Kent cream)
4. Jermyn Street, very nice Fougére scent
5. Eton College

Didn't make my list, yet still own these: Sandalwood, Avocado & Mr. Taylor

I can't believe more people haven't said Eton College. However there Grapefruit is very good and seems to have a lot of fans.
