The rose fragrance is one of the staples in traditional British wet shaving. Well-known brands, such as the famous "3 Ts" (Trumper’s, Truefitt & Hill, and Taylor of Old Bond Street), have included rose in their lineup of soaps and creams for many years. Interestingly rose was not part of the D.R. Harris & Co. catalog until only a year or so ago. I was curious to see how the D.R. Harris Rose Shaving Cream stacked up to the competition.
For the longest time I was turned off from rose scented shaving products. Many of the popular shaving creams had synthetic fragrances that were not enjoyable. When I began using traditional hard shaving soaps more frequently, I discovered that the rose scent of a shaving soap was more to my liking. Geo. F. Trumper’s Rose offering is among the best of the hard soaps I've used.
