Reviews of Shaving Shop

Huh...this does open like a 5th of whiskey as other's have said. It settles down into the barbershop vibe, but it's not my favorite of the barbershop genre. Yet again another I'd like to have tried first before purchasing. The good thing is that it's not a massive purchase, but still, the $35.00 could have gone towards something I liked much better. Ah...blind buys...I do it far too often. It's kind of fun to take the gamble when you find something special. This isn't bad, but it's not for me.

This fragrance does have a nice light whisky smell on the opening which gives way to the smell of limes. From here I can smell lots of lime, green moss and shaving cream. As time moves forward I can smell a hint of floral's and herbs. Eventually it gets woodier in the drydown and starts to remind me a bit of Carven Homme.

This scent is quite delightful and smells quite original, have not smelled its like before. As it's a barbershop fragrance you can use it as a body spray and never be afraid you have overdone it.

To sum up a wonderful barbershop fragrance that smells of light whisky, limes and green moss with a hint of shaving cream and it gets woodier in the far drydown.. Very nice indeed!

Having only ever bought commercially mainstream products aimed at a younger audience this was a completely new experience for myself. What I find with many products I have used before is how overpowering they tend to be. They have a real 'chemical pop' to them which can leave me feeling nauseated. This however was pleasantly different. It has a really soapy, calming aura. It reminds me of a more woody, spicy version of SignoRicci by Nina Ricci.

I am very happy with this purchase.

It is Shaving Shop's simplicity that makes this Cologne a hit.

A great barber style freshness with an elegant twist

It has got a mediterranean touch, deep down, "Tuscany style" and in my opinion this is the key to this fragrance.

Fresh - uncomplicated yet elegant - well constructed.

An all year style - even after the gym, makes this Cologne a great hidden number.

Last well on the skin but this is not a bold sillage fragrance.

Citrus fresh with very light herbs and spices

I am normally not a big fan of splash bottles - this fragrance is a splash style Cologne, a few drops in your hands massaged on the skin - is perfect.

Jermyn street is full of little treasures that need to be discovered - "Shaving shop" is one of them - the Shop is a must to visit !!!

I've been on a cologne/aftershave frenzy since i started DE shaving about six months ago. TOBS 'Shaving Shop' is a wonderful old world fresh out of the barbers smell. I bought both the AS and EDT and have a slight preference for the AS although they are both great.

This is my first review (and probably my last). I have no pretensions of being an expert in fragrances. I am simply a "user", having enjoyed trying different men's grooming products from various fine houses - Guerlain, L'Occitane, Pecksniff's, Trufitt and Hill, Acqua de Parma, Santa Maria Novella, Geo F Trumper, Penhaligon's and others - for about twenty years. Such as it is, that is my only claim to being "knowledgable". Having made that disclaimer, I personally think that ToOBS's Shaving Shop is one of the nicest men's fragrances I have ever worn. It isn't classy or flashy; it's just good and memorable, like the comforting smell of my Grandma's apple pie fresh out of the oven. (That analogy doesn't work if your grandmother was a lousy cook!)
