I'm looking for a soap/cream with a barbershop scent that is really old school...like talcum powder, maybe a hint of vanilla.  Nothing spicy.  Just clean, soapy, talcum powder.  Seems like a lot of barbershop scents are just a bit too spicy/musky for my tastes....almost like Axe body spray.

Thanks...

I really like Maggards London Barbershop and CRSW American Barbershop. Both smell powdery to my nose.

I am really enjoying Mystic Water's interpretation of this in her Barbershop scent. It isn't spicy, at all, and, actually, it is a nice sweet talcum scent, to me.  Smile

For a powdery Barbershop, check out the one by Shannon's Soaps: http://www.shannonssoaps.com/handmade-shaving-soap.html

It's not for me, but I definitely thought of it as "powdery" when I tried it.  And if you haven't tried Shannon's before, you are in for a treat!  Great soap with great ingredients.

I've tried a bunch of barbershop scents.
Stirling
B&m
Mickey lee's
Strop shoppe
Maggards
Wsp
Paa
Chiseled face
Tiki
Whiskers

I think you may like the tiki 1920's barbershop. It has a faint powdery scent. The kraken from mickey Lee Soapworks is also great. Not quite powdery, but it has a nice scent. Not musky or spicy.

This would also get my vote for a talc scented soap.

The 1920's barber shoppe has aroused my curiosity now. Would you say it's a lighter scented stirling barbershop?

I'll throw my 2 cents in:  RazoRock Tobacco #1 is very much powdery. I actually think they should have named it something else, but it's quite nice. Pairs perfectly with Clubman Vanilla aftershave.

I was searching for this as well. I realized Pinaud Clubman aftershave gave me what my nose/brain wanted. Now I just stick to the soaps and creams that float my boat. Clubman takes me to the barbershop any time i want to go.

You might enjoy Floris no. 89 if you can get the formulation in the light blue box. Cream and soap.
Has the light powder scent in with the bergamot and rose and moss. Pretty nice stuff.
