TOBS Rose!

Performance: Same as most TOBS, good enough to get the job done with moderate comfort. For me not quite up to Trumper standards but definitely as good as T&H and Salter.

Scent: Mixture between Salter & Trumper roses, perceptible geranium but with much powder and sweetness, no hint of green. Its actually really pleasant, probably the weakest of the lot but strong enough to smell it during the shave.

The list changes a bit:

1. Trumper
3. T&H
4. Salter

That leaves me with one last English rose cream to try, D.R. Harris... Due to its grim colour which stains silvertip brushes I won't be in a rush to try it. Bulgarian rose has also been added to the list.
I know it's not a cream but I used Martin de Candre rose this morning... Completely destroys all of the aforementioned creams in performance.

The rose scent is quite different, the soap base has its own strong aroma in MdC which interacts with the rose perfume. I think overall its closest to the T&H rose but far less synthetic and slightly more powdery, it doesnt irritate my face like T&H did.

I think I'll try LPL Rose de Pushkar next.
