    T&H is not discontinued, it's merely no longer carried by the North American distributor.

    My vote is for the old Taylor's Rose.

    Skip a poll for Lavender and just buy DR Harris (although AOS and the reformulated Taylor's are quite good as well).

    Although I wasn't too fond of the scent from a tube of ToBS I had, I loved the way it performed.

    I like the QED Wild Rose. Nice scent, not overwhelming. Excellent lather.

    Is the QED Wild Rose a Cream or a SOAP??? I tryed to be "inclusive" even as far as GOOGLING so I would leave anybody of note out....

    To me QED is definitely of NOTE. I am a good customer of QED & have big time respect for Charles....I checked his "hidden, secret" page to check if he had a Rose Cream but all I saw was SOAP....

    Apologies to QED if they have a ROSE Cream & I missed it....

    +1 on AOS lavender. I've been opening the tub just to sniff it. I may bring a tub to the office for that very purpose, although that might lead to folks questioning my sanity more than usual.

    Oh, Trumper's Rose for me.

    QED Wild Rose was a special run Charles did for us. We hope that it eventually makes it to his regular offerings.

    I love Taylor's Rose and i recently shaved with Trumper's Rose as well but in some way the scent was a bit more perfumed to me, so I'm sticking to Taylor's Rose.

    I would have said the Old Taylors but since we can't get it any longer, my vote is for Salter.

    I have used Trumper's, TOBS, T&H, AOS and Coates. I like them all but Coates is above them all.
