Geo. F. Trumper Rose

with 2 comments

Trumper’s Rose shaving cream this morning—and, as expected, the rose fragrance of the shaving cream is more intense than that of the shaving soap. Very good lather, which I created with the Simpsons Duke 3 Best—the shaving cream is heavily dyed, so don’t use white-tipped shaving brushes with it. Another Gillette NEW razor, this one holding an Astra Superior Platinum blade that turned out to be past its prime. Still, a good shave (and blade retired at the end), and a nice finish with Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner.

  1. Nice shave. I love the Trumper’s Rose, dye and fragrance be damned.

    I don’t think you really need to worry about your white tips unless you use the Trumpers Rose (and perhaps Violet, which is also heavily dyed) on a particular brush with great frequency. I use my silvertip Shavemac for creams nearly all of the time, and have yet to notice any sort of a tint.

  2. Good to know about the not-staining. Thanks.
