Back in the day this was and still is one of my favorites but now I'm down to the last swirls of my last tub. I know AoS has stopped selling in the U.K while Amazon are quoting me eigthy seven quid to deliver. Can I get any without breaking the bank or has anybody recently had any luck with ordering from any U.S outlets without getting clobbered? TIA.

Speaking from experience of ordering from the US a few times since Brexit, providing your order is under £135, you shouldn't get hit by any charges. There's no avoiding the ~$20 USPS postage costs though.

You can order it from Amazon USA for $30 or so shipped to the UK.

Good know about OSP for me, the AoS was also going to be for a gift and I'd rather it was a cream if he's not a hard soap user. GFCC looks interesting but somebody compared the scent to Prorasso in it's subtley which I like but I want something more prominent and more luxurious. That's ok I'll import some AoS but all food for thought. Cheers

That’s very true.
iv ordered twice of the PAA website and never got hit with any import duty which i’m surprised.

I've ordered from Pasteur's £50 worth and I got hit by customs. I think it depends how goods are declared.

It's not a cream, but a hard soap but the OSP Sandalwood contains real sandalwood

Otherwise there are the other sandalwood creams, like TOBS, GFCC etc.

OSP Sandalwood is something very special.

To be honest OSP is nothing like AoS cream / soap (current version).... I'm trying to think what is it that you find so special about OSP Sandalwood.

TOBS sandalwood cream is on its own as far as scent is concerned, not sure it smells of sandalwood though as it doesn't smell like any other sandalwood soap / cream I've tried (probably a dozen) but it's a good cream.

Sometimes you can get the AoS cream from https://www.cosmeticsnow.co.uk/item...ticsnow&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=instock

They don't have it in stock now though.

I'd go with Amazon USA like someone suggested.
