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.

Thanks for the review Teiste! I love some of the rose scents and hate others. TOBS are not my thing but T&H is. I also like Klar Kabinett scent, more synthetic but pleasant.

Good review, thanks. Did the cream discolor the tips of your brush at all?

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.

I don't think I've ever seen cream that looks like that, reminds of me of raspberry jam or something, looks like it should be slathered on some salt risen toast with butter. Babeando I haven't eaten lunch and I think it's starting to show.

Hi Teiste

Nice review and nice photos (as always) Thumbsup

I'm a fan of rose scents as long as the scent isn't too overpowering - if too much I find I experience a (mild) headache...

Take care, Mike

Teiste,

Thank you for the review. I've been a fan of rose scents for a long time, and have wondered which of the rose-scented creams to try first.

You solve my problem with this review. Excellent as always.

Great review, Teiste.

I have the Cyril R. Salter wild rose, and it has a wonderful, natural rose smell.
It also performs great.
I think as a brand CRS is very underrated.
