What is your favorite Violet cream or soap and why? I am wanting to try some but want to know who makes the best ones.

Thanks

Wish I could help you on this one but I've never use a Violet cream. I would think probably one of the Three T's. I'm sure others will chime in with their recommendations.

I don't know how many there are but I love Trumpers violet cream. It has almost a smoky earthiness but also a bright and sharp floral scent.

I have a tube of GFY violet cream. Rarely use it anymore. Find it very "rich" smelling, almost over powering.

I have not tried GFT Violet, but I do bave both Jabonman Violet and Razorock Napoleon's Violet and absolutely love them both. The Razorock is a bit sweeter while the Jabonman is more floral and slightly earthy. I absolutely love Violet and find both to be exceptional and make me feel very regal!

Regal? Perhaps I should break out the GFT Violet and try it tomorrow! Regal? Really?

I don't know what it is about Violet, but it makes me feel like I could conquer the world. Yes, regal indeed.

I've never tried a violet shaving cream/soap, this has piqued my interest. No, I have too many soaps already...must...resist...urge.

The Razorock is nice and cheap too!

I may have to check it out, the Napoleon Violet right? I just finished off my tub of Chianti Lavender last week, guess I can justify a replacement tub. Tongue

I blundered into Pasteur's while in NY a few weeks ago. After the sensory overload subsided (too many labels, fragrences, toys, etc.) I got down to the business of putting stuff in a basket.

Never having tried a Razorock soap, I started sniffing. Way to many to choose from. More overload. I came away with a jar of Napolean's Violet. A subtle and pleasing aroma and excellent lathering performance.

I used Jabonman's Violet this morning with great success. Definitely more of an earthy, powdery scent compared to Napoleon's Violet. Both are fantastic, I think I will have to use the other in the coming days.

Did it! Shaved with GFT Violet cream this morning, and followed it up with Gray Flannel splash and edt! Very regal! (Wondering why I stopped using creams; that was nice).

I like the scent of Jabonman "Violetas" very much, but this is the only violet soap that i´ve ever tried.

Geo F Trumpers Violet is my favorite cream, period. It performs flawlessly, since that is the first and foremost req'mt of any shave product, but the scent is divine.

It ranks at the top of my list of creams and one that I will always have in the rotation. It is my intention to use up all the creams I have on hand and only replace the top three:
1) Geo F Trumpers Violet
2) Nancy Boy Signature
3) Truefitt & Hill Rose
4) Geo F Trumpers Coconut
5) Santa Marie Novella
6) Aqui di Parma
7) Nancy Boy Blossomwood
