Gents,

The first time I used Le Labo shaving cream it was an abysmal failure!  I didn’t use enough cream, and the lather was just terrible.  I was almost wondering if it was a brushless cream?

So my curiosity was piqued, and I did a test lather tonight.  I just wanted to see if it was worth revisiting.

So I gave it a shot, and the lather was infinitely better.  A bit airy, but I can certainly work with this...conditions weren’t optimal...I didn’t soak the badger brush for more than a minute, and I could probably have used just a bit more cream.

I am going to give it a whirl later in the week.

Matt

Funny house.  First time smelled Santal it literally reeked of cat urine to my nose; same sample the second time it was alright BUT the third time I was hooked.  Realize played out but without doubt one of the most unique and favourite scents ever.  Poivre was love at first sniff and will wear it in Southern Summers FTW.  What scent was the crème?

It’s a kind of light generic cologne to my nose.

If you blind asked me who made the scent, I would not guess Le Labo in a million years.

Bergamot, Lavender, Tonka, and Violet. It is a soft fragrance. I like it better now than initially, it isn’t unpleasant, but not my usual cup of tea.

Perhaps one of those unisex fragrances that either a guy or girl could wear.

I had no idea Le Labo made shaving creams. When did this start? I've bought the beautiful patchouli scent at our Seattle store, but didn't notice any shaving creams...

Fairly recently, maybe in the last year?

Airy, dissipating nonsense. Greasy. The don’t understand shaving whatsoever. But, you know, YMMV.

Agree with Shaun, but maybe not so strongly. I’d say that it’s nothing special with a generic light cologne scent.

Expensive, too. Price of their balm is right up there as well. Fragrance is great, sure, but not for $56 a tube. Australian $.

The longer I'm into this hobby and the older I get, the more I realize, that luxury brands should stick to what made them famous and not venture into unknown territory.
