Fond of their OK. The B&N sounds like another winner.

Has anybody received their cream?  Mine is still in transit.  I'm surprised at how long it took just to get it packaged and to the shipper.

EDIT:  Mine are being delivered today.

I bought the Cardamom and Coriander.  Really nice scent.  The Ocean Kelp isn't new but it smells really nice.

Agreed, the Coriander and Cardamon is the best new scent for me. It’s the one I thought I’d like least as well.

I really didn't love any of the new scents, unfortunately. Not bad by any means. But, I like the scents I already own better (Sandalwood, Ocean Kelp, Peppermint... and Unscented... and the discontinued Rose). I just couldn't rationalize having another scent.

Just received mine.

Both smell very nice out of the box with the Bergamont/Neroli being pretty zippy and the Vetiver/Citron having a more subdued, less fresh scent.  Looking forward to trying them out.

Used the Bergamot/Neroli today.  The cream has the same great performance.  As for the scent, it is very reminiscent of TOBs Eton College, a personal favorite of mine.  Perhaps a bit more citrus, or stronger citrus, than Eton, but very similar nonetheless.

Just a quick follow up.  I've used both the Vetiver Citron and the Bergamot Neroli.  Both are nice.  My preference is the Bergamot Neroli as I like the citrus zing to it.  Vetiver Citron is more subdued, a mild vetiver in the front with light citron in the back.  Still very nice, and good for a day when I don't want a lot of olfactory input!  Smile  As an aside, one of my tubs unscrewed during shipping and leaked a bit.  AoS is sending a new tub, although I told then that wasn't needed.  Great CS.

While I was at a local mall today, I checked the new scents out. I have to say, all of them smell very good. However, my favorite was the eucalyptus. I also liked the oud and bergamot neroli.

After a very pleasant experience with Castle Forbes Cedar and Sandalwood I have rethought my soap only habits.  I have since ordered Proraso Red, which I have been using this week and then ordered three of the new AoS creams due to a good offer received last week.  I'll be using these throughout December and will try to update with my reviews here.

My fav as well. I honestly had no idea what either would smell like in a shaving product, but the combination is really unique (at least for me, I haven’t tried a lot of the cologne-scented stuff out there). I recently ran out of the Coriander/Cardimom cologne and bought some more. Psyched that they made a matching cream. Would love a balm in this scent....

I finally, finally, made it into an AOS store to sniff the new products.  I expected for Bergamot & Neroli to be my favorite since I'm a sucker for bergamot, and it is very nice, but the Vetiver & Citron ended up being my vote for best of the new. I asked for, and received, a sample of the cologne. I could also see myself owning Oud, if money & inventory were limitless!

The website shows $25-30 for shave cream tubs depending on scent. Where do you see $50?
My error. I was looking at the colognes.
