is there a place to order samples?
Im very fussy when it comes to scents, or is it a case of go and try before you buy?

I wondered if anyone has successfully been granted any small e.g. 5ml Stirling QShave samples from shave time in the UK

I had an idea and promptly purchased some small sample tubes approx 5 ml. It's expensive to buy colognes and a/shaves when you ha e to rely on a vague description of a scent and to be fair it's not easy to describe many of them. I thought we could put it out there if someone wanted to try samples from forum members who have specific edits or a/shaves and we could swap or just send 3 or 4 small samples rather than everyone guessing for 11 _25 GBP a throw and being disappointed with a fragrance they didn't even get a sniff of b4 they are posted through your door. Just a thought

I think the problem when you r in the shaving community and you enjoy old school aftershaves it's difficult to go into a retail outlet to buy these specialist wet shaving goodies especially the varieties round the globe. Maybe sites should b more ready to send small samples at competitive prices??

I'm still waiting for the shaving time company to decide whether they will start filling smal bottles with 5ml samples of their EDT and after shaves just as their parent company supplier Stirling Soap company in the USA are doing for their wet shavers. Why are we always at the end of the queue for these simple ideas to give us "more choice" as Mrs. Thatcher would have put it. Although I never one of her fans. We are paying nearly £7.00 more than our American cousins for the same 100ml bottle of Stirling a/shaves and EDTs

He's got markup costs to account for though hasn't he. That's why you're paying the extra. Having said that, it's nearly £16 for a tub of soap at Shaving Time now and that begins to put Stirling out of the budget friendly bracket it is in America.

You'r right Chris its a bit of a game shipping a/shaves now that they don't carry gallons of them on aeroplanes like they used to. Are they that explosive or is it a real terrorist threat?? I don't know - I wish someone in the know would explain it to me. £16.00 per tub is still below Ariana and Evans who have turned up very recently in the UK as you know. I still think that 4 samples for $10.00 allows Shaving time to make 50 out of 1 bottle. I pour a/shave into a 5ml plastic spray bottle just to carry 1 around when I go out after all they don't stay fragrant for long - especially Razorock. What do you think - I might be missing the point so value and welcome all wet shavers opinions. I wish we had some Artisan shops like the USA. We would probably end up mildly bankrupt - let loose in those places. Thanks for your feedback. P. S. Kevy in Dundee may mention Those Damn Samples thread for maybe a wider debate on this. Cheers - Alex
