Have you ever had a product that you used to really like but that you no longer care for? I have had several including Penhaligons Blenheim Bouquet, Sir Irisch Moos (no longer care for the scent) and Geo Trumper Marlborough. What makes your list?

English Leather and Brut after shaves.

Kent brushes.

Most of the British and French soaps. Notice I said most, not all. I love MWF.

I really need to learn how to speak Italian and Portuguese.Smile

It's still early days for me, but my Col Conk pretty much never gets pulled out for shaving my face anymore. I use it for test lathers sometimes, and the wife and daughter use it for shaving their legs.

My TOBS Lemons & Limes hasn't lost its place completely, but I rarely use it.

I tend to fall out of love with scents more then anything else.

Pinaud Clubman , I used up two bottles and then another two bottles that I mentholated and I'm about half way through my fifth bottle and I just don't use it anymore. It's nearly Summer in Texas so maybe I'll add some menthol to my last bottle of Clubman.

Colognes; Azzaro por un homme, Jaipur, Armani Code just to name a few.

Pre de Provence shaving soap. It was my first quality shaving soap, about a week later I picked up a puck of AOS Sandalwood SS. I used the ASO nonstop until it was gone. Several years after I had been wet shaving I dug the puck of PdP out and lathered it up. It was average at best and just couldn't compete with my other soaps.

Maybe we should arrange a trade?

Gillette tto including all of the adjustables. The only exception is the Red Tip. That is an excellent shaver.

Merkur Vision is a waste of raw materials. Half the adjustments don't work. When you close down the head you can't shave with it. That was done on purpose by Merkur for safety reasons. Makes no sense to me.

Cremo Cream. Absolutely doesn't work for me.

With Franks!

I used to eat them all the time when I was a kid.

Now, they're horrible.

Shave related, LaToja Cream. I thought it was great when I got it.
Now, not so much. Once I realized it had SLS, I was even more put off by it.

The aftershave splash is nice though.

I have a hard time wanting to use Cella. I know, how can one say that about Cella?

Mark, this is wet shaving so any and all aspects are YMMV. Wink

I like Cella's performance but not the scent. Some like the scent and a few have trouble getting it to lather the way they like. Hey, with all of the shaving soaps and creams out there, not caring for some of them is no big deal.

Lost Loves huh.

Well not exactly what you mean, but I LOVE FLOID BLUE, and with the discontinuation I am placing about an order a week with Guiseppe since he is now limiting it to one bottle per order. Have accumulated 4 bottles so far but I may as well put a BB gun in my mouth the day I run out. Would love to find a suitable replacement. I know folks say Aqua Velva, but it's nowhere close in my opinion.

Boy, I feel like a dork that I still like them. Probably though since my parental units rarely got them when I was a mere child.

Shaving related - C&E Sandalwood. It was my first high end software. Liked it alot but have since realized the performance is just ok and the scent is tiresome to me now. I've been using it relatively exclusively the past few weeks but that's just because I'm close to finishing it out. Won't be replacing.

This is probably heresy on most shaving forums but...

Gillette TTO's - used them my whole life since I learned how to shave. If I never see another one it would not bother me at all. I truly do not like TTO's anymore. Even as a teenager I used Schick injectors, Gillette Tech's or my grandfather's old Gillette open combs.

There I said it I feel better now.

I'm going to add the Merkur HD and Slant to my list. I used both for a long time. I gave the HD to my son and the Slant is sitting unused in the nook.

I'll agree 99 percent except for my Sheraton and Senator. I do enjoy the shave I get with them, but as for Red Tips, Superspeeds, Fatboys, Slims, etc, I just don't get a good shave with them.

Merkur Vision 2000 - First shaves were exceptional but I found that over time I did less and less with adjustables.
