This is not a review really, I just got a tub to see what the hype was about, sniff test failed as soon as I opened it Sad
It is described as lavender, peppermint, rosemary and all I could smell are mint and dirt. Was going to put it on BST without even trying it, but I am glad I suffered through that smell and had a very nice shave this morning. This cream is excellent! Slick, protective, skin care is top notch.
They have 2 other varieties available and since I don't believe those descriptions anymore, can anyone tell me what they are like?

I think the replenishing smells like cucumbers. Great performance, but that scent was tough to get past.

The replenishing cream does indeed smell like cucumbers, albeit faintly. Certainly not as strong a scent as the Signature cream. The performance is at least on a par with the Signature cream, the skin care is excellent. I can't comment on the Blossomwood cream having never tried it.

I tried the Blossomwood scent and it has a floral scent, almost sweet smelling, that was not for me. But you might like it! All Nancy Boy creams perform very well.

I love the Signature scent. Glad you gave it a go.

Steve , I tried the same cream you did , and I found the scent terrible and my shaves with it even worst.Interesting you enjoyed a great shave today with it.
Honestly , I totally trust you did , and in other circumstances Ill give that cream another go , but with that scent , no way!

Funny I actually like the smell of Signature quite a bit, but there are other soaps and creams that turn my stomach, scents that other folks love. The human brain and how it takes on and interprets smells is rather amazing.

I like it too. Just used it this AM and I find it to be a great cream and a very consistent performer. It's really difficult to make a bad lather with this one.
I like the Signature scent so much that I ended up getting some of the bath soap and the body spray. Biggrin

The problem though is that the supposed shelf life is 6 months,(though that according to the company) after the loss of parabens. If that is the case, the tub is too big of you rotate a lot of creams/soaps like I do so the recommendation is to get their travel sized 2oz tubs. Easier to try all of the scents that way too.
