I have a few sandalwood creams. They are all a little different. None of them are "offensive"
I've tried quite a few sandalwood scented creams (Truefitt & Hill, Trumpers, AOS, TOBS and Proraso Red) and aside from the Proraso the TOBS is my favorite!

I'd have to agree with AOS Sandalwood and the new Proraso Red. It's nice to have great quality products that are also fairly easy to find. And they smell fantastic.
Have become a TOBS, Feather blade, Merkur 34c HD, and Proraso splash man!

TOBS Sandalwood was my first TOBS cream, AS and cologne I bought, it remains my favorite TOBS product. I find the TOBS creams very easy on my face and great shaving performers. My wife loves the scent of the TOBS Sadalwood, however it does not smell that much like most other Sandalwoods out there: neither creams, soaps, ASB or colognes. It just has a fantastic scent, at least to me and swmbo.

Amazing how one mans junk is anothers gold...for me, TOBS wsa my first cream and I just loved it from the performance to smell...and yet I feel the AS and cologne smell great but differ from the cream...CS indian sandalwood is a similiar scent yet Proraso red almost smells like wet paint to me...to me, Honeybee Garden Bayrum smells almost like sandalwood
AoS and Proraso are all I've tried. Love 'em both so I just stopped there. I might have to get a sample of the QSC. It sounds intriguing.

I found an aromatherapy lotion that was sandlewood and Rose. IT. WAS. AWESOME. I think it was from the bath and body works.
Ive smelled Real sandalwood and its beautiful, But its very expensive and hard to get because of laws that protect the tree. The sandalwood scents that are sold in soaps aren't real sandalwood.
Please comment on my recent reviews. Thanks!
This thread has convinced me to add the Proraso red to my wishlist. too bad I hadn't read it before I put my order in this morning. :P
