The Windsor is a better performer (IMO) but the scent of Spanish Leather is great.

Two very different scents but I'd agree with Dave - go with the better performer.

I only have the Windsor which I enjoy a lot. Nice scent with good performance.

I haven't tried the Spanish Leather, but really like the DRH Windsor.

Looks like Windsor is leading, has anyone used Spanish Leather?

Have you smelled each of them? While Windsor may have the edge in performance, I don't think it's by much. I think you can get a great shave from both. I say follow your nose.

I have the GFT Spanish Leather and it performs as well as all the other GFT creams. I'm sure it's a Creighton product as most of the 3 Ts are so you get good, but not great performance. That being said it certainly isn't a bad cream by any stretch of the imagination.

However, the Spanish Leather scent is simply delightful to me and I'll continue to purchase this product every time I run out. If SL is one of your favorite scents it's a no brainer to get this cream.

If I wanted pure performance I'd only shave with Mitchell Wool Fat ... where's the fun in that ?

Have you ever used another GFT cream before ? Excuse me if you've already answered that question earlier.

Then by all means order this:

And email them to ask that they make sure a sample of Spanish Leather is included. You may want to check to see if DR Harris has a similar sample pack.

I second that idea. I order their sampler about once a year.

I got a sample of Spanish Leather from Garry and I have to say, I hate this stuff! It smells way too much like a perfume to me and left my face rather dry. Looks like Windsor will win by default. Thanks for your input Gents!

I hate you didn't like the SL. I've never seen it described like a perfume scent, but that's the beauty of our little hobby of wet shaving.

I hope you enjoy the Windsor. Let us know what you think of it as well.

Yes our hobby is very YMMV, I've got a sample of Windsor soap on the way from Garry. I'll let you know what my nose thinks Biggrin
