I really like the smell of Simpson's sandlewood shaving cream, just not a big fan of creams. Any suggestions for a hard soap with a similar scent?

I would not say they are similar, but the AoS and CRSW Sandalwood soaps are very nice.

My recollection of Simpson's sandalwood cream is a bit fuzzy, because, like you, I shy away from creams.
That said, the AoS and CRSW sandalwood soaps are my favorites.  Queen Charlotte's is, what I deem, "pure sandalwood."  

I used AoS this morning.  It's what I usually reach for on Sunday morning.

The discontinued AOS with tallow, in sandalwood scent, is available on eBay at amazingly low prices.  AOS currently sells its NEW veggie version for $30/puck.  The eBay vendor sells THREE of the tallow pucks for $32!!  There is another vendor that sells one puck for $16.  I bought six recently - it is one of the few soaps as good as its hype.

If interested, go to eBay and use the search term "art of shaving tallow shaving soap."  The first hits are the ones you want.
