So it turns out that GFT Coconut SC might have a competitor. TOBS has a new SC and its coconut!

Hopefully it performs like the Avocado SC b/c that stuff was pretty nice. Well hope you all have a great day friends!

nice. i did like the TOBS when i was using it, well prices, great scents...the avocado was my favorite, nice and fresh.

GFT Coconut will be hard to beat, but i'm for another competitor.

Cool! Cool

thanks for posting the link, I have only the TOBS Sandalwood cream (in the round tub), but have been curious about *smells* of some of their other products... coconut seems like it would be a light scent

You know it would be great if there's a SS as well b/c I prefer shaving soaps over creams!

Does it smell like coconut or just has coconut oil in it? Does it have a tropical suntan lotion type scent or just a hint of coconut?

Coconut is one of my favorite summer scents to use!!!!

Hi

I've no idea, but it would have to be something very! special to beat GEO F Trumper Coconut Oil Soft Shaving Cream (IMHO), though Taylor Of Old Bond Street does produce some (very) good shaving creams/soaps...

Also both the below shave soaps are (very) good: Take care, Mike

Mike i'm also a soapmaker so I do have a coconut scent as well. But I also like to use commercial made products. And coconut happens to be a favorite. I have a weakness for it.

Does the trumpers smell of coconut? I got the impression that was made with coconut oil rather than having a coconut scent for some reason.

Hi

Do you make shaving soaps? If yes, do you have a link to share...

Please bear in mind my sense of smell is poor (to say the least), I've documented GEO F Trumper Coconut scent as -- lovely light "sweet coconut" scent. The wife says it smells too good to waste on shaving...

GEO F Trumper Coconut Oil Soft Shaving Cream ingredient list: Aqua (water), Stearic Acid, Myristic Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Coconut Acid, Glycerin, Parfum (fragrance), Triethanolamine, Sodium Hydroxide, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

Hope the above proves somewhat helpful.

Take care, Mike

I do make shaving soaps but I'm not a vendor yet on this site. I'm working towards that. So do watch for my thread when I achieve that. But I've been active on other forums in the past but took a little break.
My intro thread.

I may have to pick up some trumpers then. I do love a good coconut, but in the artisan world coconut is one of those scents that is a little hard to get a good quality one that works in soap or doesn't end up smelling like playdough. Everyone is searching for but so far no supplier has come out with one.

I find the coconut scent of the Trumper's to be delightful. (Mine is vintage, but some report the current one to smell just the same.) Another great coconut line is the DR Harris shampoo and the matching conditioner.

"Sweet coconut" is a good description of the scent. For me, it smells like coconut ice-cream or coconut yoghurt, or something like that. Delicious!
On the first time I smelled that, I almost took a bite on it! Tongue

I may have to try this out. I have the GFT to compare it to, and I much prefer TOBS sandalwood to GFT's. Maybe the coconut will be the same way.

Definitely look forward to having this hit the shelves here. I fear it might be a bit too strongly scented a la Avocado, but its a risk willing to take!
