Dior Sauvage shaving cream?

I tried a sample of Dior’s Eau Sauvage cream last night. The sample was generously sent by @Dr Watson . Thank you James. 👍

I took James advice and used a decent amount of product. I’m usually pretty heavy handed when using creams anyway. I used, approximately two almond size portions.

James also warned to added a small amount of water slowing. He’s found if you add too much water too quickly it collapses and there’s bring it back.

It took longer than usual to create a lather, especially for a cream. The lather looked decent enough in the bowl but when painted on my face it was quite transparent with the consistency being light and fluffy.

The initial slickness and protection was OK but shaving over any area without any lather the slickness was very poor.

The scent and scent strength was great while lathering up and during the shave but after the final rinse I couldn’t detect any lingering scent at all.

So overall a disappointing product. I still fancy getting the aftershave splash and balm though.

Thanks again to James for sending the sample. You’re a Gent.

Cheers
Rob

Yeah, it's pretty pants :laugh: Smells lovely though...

Anyone claiming performance is up to T&H standards (I've seen it said) needs a check up from the neck up I'm afraid.

Does anyone know if there is a Dior Sauvage and NOT (Eau Sauvage) shaving soap/cream on the market? Even an interpretation of this ambroxan bombshell .

Not a cream but a soft soap: A&E Monte Carlo.

Available in the UK from Slickboys, a little birdie tells me a restock is being updated on the website 6pm this evening :wink:

Of all the shaving creams or soaps/croaps I’ve ever tried, not one has a lingering scent - so why pay premium for the scent when it’s the soap’s performance that matters?

There’s a shaving gel, I haven’t tried it and at £40 I won’t be.
There’s nearly as much Habanolide (synthetic musk) as ambroxan in Sauvage. There’s more ambroxan in Aventus than Sauvage.
