Couldn't stand the scent of this one. One use and had to PIF it but performance was spot on.Back to Cyril R Salter R Salter creams today - the third of four recent acquisitions: French Vetiver.
I again used the Phoenix AA Starcraft brush (and what a gem it is!) and the cream lathered very quickly and created a really generous amount of soft lather from only a small amount from the pot. The downside was the scent…up close it had a sort of burned hair and ashes smell, but seemed almost entirely fragrance-free for the shave itself. Certainly, in terms of scent, it was the most disappointing of the three CRS creams I’ve tried so far this week, and once it's all gone it isn't a cream I'll be replacing.
Using the EJDE89, I again tried a different blade: ‘Rapira Supersteel', which I was very impressed with. It was smooth and unaggressive but very effective, and I was finished in my normal two and a bit passes.

So far, the Wild Rose is my favourite of the CRS creams, and I only have one more to test: Sublime Citrus. That will be at some point this week but I have other things to try out first!
Happy shaving to all
