I must admit that I have never been a great lover of rose scents , until lately that scent have grown on me , and it was time to try the D.R. Harris rose shaving cream , the made in UK shaving cream , that many experienced wet shavers consider the best of the roses ones, and I can see why.
In the past I have tried the Truefitt and Hill , TOBS , and Vulfix roses shaving creams , and I have added recently a tub of the old TOBS rose (with parabens on it) , which smells quiet different than the new TOBS roses shaving cream (no parabens).
Well , if you ask me about the scents , the D.R. Harris rose wins clearly , since its fragrance is so close to fresh roses.Its not a "powdery" scent at all , but kind of sweet and herbal.I truly like it better than the Truefitt and Hill roses , which is even more expensive , but its scent its quiet "powdery and sweet".
This cream has a very deep pink color , like the Geo F Trumper rose and its very , very thick of consistency , almost like a soft soap , I would say.Nothing new to me , since I already know that D.R. Harris creams could go so thick , more than any of the other 3 Ts shaving creams.
I dont know the ingredients list of this cream ,but I think that it doesnt contains parabens , and basically has the same ingredients based than the other D.R. Harris creams.
To make lather with this cream is very easily , as you can see on this pics :
I can get a very thick and slick lather from it , in no time , basically and the shave with it it very "aromatic" , since the rose scent lingers during the whole shave.Perfect.
This cream cost 27.50 dollars for the 150 g tub at Bullgoose shaving. . Since its so concentrated and thick , you dont need to much of it , to create good lather , so a full tub could last you over 7 months of regular use.
If you are a Rose scent lover , and you are looking for a great Rose shaving cream , this could be the one for you.Its truly , the one for me.

Not at all , John.I think that I should have made that known on the original post , since some people have complained in the past regarding that.In my case , no , the silvertip white tips are still white after using this cream.
