Scent Strength (balance):
I picked up a tube of Geo F. Trumper Sandalwood shave cream, my third shave cream/soap from Geo F. Trumper. I had mixed feelings from my first two – the Rose was a bit too flowery, while I just didn’t get on well with the puck of Eucris – however refuse to give up too easily.
The first thing I need to discuss is how I feel about shave cream in a tube. I don’t really enjoy it. Feels a bit too much like a tube of artists paint – doesn’t feel right having to squeeze to get your product on your brush. I much prefer my cream in an open bowl where I can smell the fragrance as soon as I remove the lid; it was difficult to sense the fragrance by simply unscrewing the cap from the tube. I also like being able to add more cream if needed without having to reach for the tube and squeeze a little more out.
Packaging aside I had a good experience with the Geo F. Trumper Sandalwood cream. I didn’t need much cream to build up a lather; which lasted me for three passes (I opted to apply the cream directly onto the brush – choosing the bowl I’m sure would be equally effective).
The fragrance really opened up once I got the lather going – just strong enough to enjoy it, not overpowering at all. The nice, creamy lather performed well, good lubrication and cushion, and did a good job of moisturizing.
