Wife bought mine around the corner at MiN on Crosby St. It's a neat store

thank you both!


great looking store, GDL. I bought a bunch of Cire Trudon candles in France but have been reluctant to burn them because I didn't want to scour the city looking for more.


that, and burning a candle inside when it's 150 degrees out is a little weird.

If anyone wants a bit of a video instructional on shaving soaps and how to lather them, we've put out a video on that very topic recently. Check it out if you're keen:

Just stocked up on Trumpers while on vacation in London. Store was amazing. Hard to find similar establishments in NJ.

It is a great store!

If you're in NYC and want to see amazing, go to Pasteur's Pharmacy. They have just about every cream/soap made in the world. Its the mecca of shaving!

I get the soap onto my brush and then lather it up on my face instead of a cup. I figure that it takes away an extra item (the cup) and it could only benefit to keep working the soap into the hair and skin. I still get a dense foam.

Face lather is good. It never worked well for me though, I always preferred a mug/bowl.

It's all water/soap ratio.

very nice. Don't you think the cream and aftershave are kind of matchy-matchy, though? smile.gif

...wife dug up a shaving soap recipe on-line and we made a batch a couple of weeks ago. It should be done curing soon, although I have no idea what to expect. Actually, I can say that it won't smell all that great - she sprung it on me one evening and I didn't have nearly enough scent oils ready.

I think that's the point with BB, great performance and scent. I wish the EdT smelled good on me.

Beautiful setup gdl203!

Of my current soaps and creams, I am really loving the L'Occataine Cade shaving soap (cream was nice to not cheap), E-Shave's White Tea shaving cream (and companion Aftershave balm). E-Shave's Avocado and Linden shave soap and of course Proraso "Green" shaving cream.

I really would like to try TOB's Sandalwood shave cream or soap along with companion aftershave and cologne at some point.
