Truefitt and Hill's Sandalwood

Messages

The sandalwood DR Harris puck soap has been a lovely scent all year. But when I got it I was hoping it would smell more like the sandalwood scent of Truefitt and Hill that I prefer. I'm now finding out that the Truefitt and Hill I like is actually not a very traditional sandalwood which is why I keep trying other sandalwoods and finding that they are very different. Does anyone know of another shaving soap that smells like Truefitt and Hill so I can avoid buying 5 different kinds to find one that fits? Or maybe what I should be looking for to get that T&H scent?

To answer the question, why not just keep using T&H soap: it is an infuriatingly difficult soap puck to load and lather.
To answer the question, why not just use their cream: I'm trying to stick to soaps so I don't have the waste of a plastic container every time.

Thanks!

You could use it for odds and ends (my wife always want mine for paper clips etc, or simply recycle. I use mine as a travel bowl for cream. Few ideas to consider. On.the scent its I love Truefitt Sandalwood, Taylor's is the nearest I've found..
Good luck on the path to the holy grail of sandalwood. Let us know what you find.

Three of them have already been used for odds and ends with another one just sitting there waiting for a stroke of inspiration to go into service. I haven't smelled all the sandalwoods out there but Taylor's which I just received is similar, I suppose. It turns out as I've gathered from research that the bergamot is what makes Truefitt less like authentic sandalwood scents and more like colognes. Colognes which happen to also be my favourites. I think Truefitt is the anomaly here and there's not likely to be anything else like it. We're just too zero waste to keep buying a plastic container every few months. It's a shame the soap lathers so poorly. The scent profile of DR Harris Marlborough looks similar, I may order one of those.
