Not really a big talc user but I do use Clubman, Gold Bond or some Johnson's Lavender scented (I know, technically not a talc) on occasion in the summer when it's really hot and humid, especially this past summer when we had 2 weeks of solid 100-107 degrees and 100% humidity..nothing like just coming from a nice shower and shave and sweating the moment you open the front door.

I don't use talcs after shaving, but I have some Woods of Windsor Lavender and Floris Jasmine that I occasionally use after a shower, especially in the summer.

I use Clubman Talc after every shave on my shoulders and the back of my neck. I also use it several times throughout the day to freshen up. My wife will tell you though I can get a little bit carried away with itBiggrin

Part of my shaving ritual:

Following After Shave Balm, approx 1/2 Hr, I always use: Pinaud "Clubman" finest talc in a puffer. Excellent product, should never be without.

I have some Yardley that I like but am curious about the Taylor talcs. In the summer heat, I like the Gold Bond Medicated talc.

I have too many talcs to mention. A few favorites:

Taylor of London Lavender (not Taylor of Old Bond Street)
Floris Cefiro
Cussons Imperial Leather Silk
Himani Navratna Cool Talc
Caswell-Massey Verbena

Today it was the Cussons Imperial Leather Silk. This incredibly inexpensive talc (99p [US$1.59]) is one of the smoothest I own and I love the scent.

I'm now awaiting some newly bought vintage Penhaligon's Lords talcum powder, to go along with my favorite Lords shaving cream and aftershave. Full report later.

I posted Clubman earlier. Since I got hold of some Jeris and a nice Marvey neck duster. Nothing like a nice dusting of talc on the back of the neck to finish grooming....
