    while not a cream.. Ogallala Bay Rum & Sandalwood is very nice. Santa brought me the $22 AOS Sandalwood cream and I have used it almost everyday. I'm still working from the smear on the lid. I suspect it's going to last a long time.

    Ones I have used

    I started with the AOS Sandlewood. I liked it very much and it was what got me hooked. ($30 a tub and should last 3-6 months). I have used Trumpers, Taylors and one off brand one. Never used any of the soaps. I now use the new recipe of the T&H sandlewood. I love it. it makes my face feel so nice. makes a great lather. runs $32 a tub but the bub I have is maybe halfway used and I got it back in August.

    TOBS Sandalwood was one of the first creams I got (gift)-I hated it and thought I just hated Sandalwood. One day I took a wiff of AOS Sandalwood Soap-much much better. It's now one of my favorite products. Just my 2 cents.

    I highly recommend TOBS and Crabtree & Evelyn sandalwood creams.

    TSD Sandalwood or Green Pond (D.R. Harris) Sandalwood.

    AOS for the scent.

    I enjoy Sandalwood. Salter is one of the better smelling, IMO.

    I've recently fallen in love with AOS Sandalwood. Though I will mention I also enjoy the C&E Sandalwood scent

    I haven't tried too many different Sandalwoods.But the AOS is a good size tub and has lasted quite a while with a great scent. As others have said, a little goes a long way. Might be a little pricey up front, but consider how long it lasts if you cost average it out it's pretty reasonable.

    Of course I can find a way to try and justify ANY shaving purchase.

    A hundred bucks for another razor,, well if I live another 30 yrs,, use it only once a week it'll be cheaper than buying those cartridge razors,, I'm a fool not to buy it. See how my mind works!

    Wow, I'm liking the TOBS Sandalwood Cream. Shaved with it this morning and I can still smell it 5 hours after shaving...

    Does it smell like Edwin Jagger Sandalwood?

    Don't know, never have tried Edwin Jagger Sandalwood. I have read that for some, the TOBS Sandlalwood scent is too heavy but I like it so ymmv...:D

    T&H makes a sandalwood cream, I think its tough to beat. To answer a queston above, C&E does sell a sandalwood cream in a glass jar on their website.

    C&E Sandalwood is the only Sandalwood out of all the Sandalwood's that I have tried that I :love029 !

    I personally prefer the Soap over the Cream!

    I have tried the C&E cream and Green Pond and for some reason I remember the Green Pond more.

    I don't know what true sandalwood should be but try to get a sample of green pond if you can.

    I've tried ToBS sandalwood a/s gel, liked the scent but not the film it left on my skin - almost like peeling off dry sunburned skin. Perhaps I was overzealous in it's application. Anway, I've been asked for ideas for gifts for an upcoming celebration and I'm considering suggesting AoS preshave oil, shaving cream, shaving soap, A/S balm and A/S cologne or edt.
    The entire range iirc.
    Any other suggestions regarding sandalwood ranges, it's one of my favourite scents ?
    I also like patchouli and have heard bay rum is popular though never smelled it.
    Opinions would be gratefully received as well as direction to sample packs if they are available.

    I plumped for the GFT sandalwood gift set. Comprising cologne, shaving cream, body wash, roll on deodarant and also skin food. I'm happy with it and smells superb.

    I really like the smell of the AOS sandalwood...

    though I have not used any of their product yet.

    Macy's online has a 4 Elements of The Perfect Shave starter Kit that has 2 weeks worth of product. Not sure if you'd call it a sample, but it includes Pre-Shave Oil (.5 fl. oz), Shaving Cream (1 oz), After-Shave Balm (.5 fl. oz), and a Genuine Badger Shaving Brush. All for $25.

    They say it is perfect for travel.

    TOBS Sandalwood or Morris & Forndran's handmade sandalwood for $8. Cheaper than TOBS but smaller puck~Packs he same punch though.
