    Default Taylor of Old Bond Street Opinions Needed

    I am looking at buying either:

    Taylor of Old Bond Street - Sandalwood Cologne
    Taylor of Old Bond Street - Shaving Shop Cologne

    I like soapy/powdery colognes. Does either, neither, or both fit the bill? Or maybe one of the other Taylor of Bond Streets:

    Mr. Sidney's, Mr. Taylor, or Eton College Colognes?

    Looking to order pretty quickly so any opinions or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    I've only used the shaving creams, but the Mr. Taylor's is great.

    I love Eton College Collection. I wanted to like Shaving Shop; it's a nice fragrance, but it's almost non-existent on my skin, so it's on my swap list.
    My current top 10: Richard James; Clive Christian No. 1 for Men; L'Artisan Voleur de Roses; Creed Aventus, Erolfa, Santal Imperial, Virgin Island Water, and Windsor; Serge Lutens Chergui and Gris Clair

    I have Mr. Taylor and absolutely hate it. To me it seems to be an incomplete frag. YMMV

    TOBS Sandalwood smells similar to Brooks Brothers 1818, which I believe you have. Shave Shop is soapy, Eton College also, though not as much, as it is a bit woodsier. These comments are from memory, as I own neither. I do own Mr. Taylors, and like it quite a lot, but it is more of a powerhouse scent, heavy on incense and woods, great for winter time, and something the younger generation might not relate to.

    Thank you (and everyone else) for the comments! I do own Brooks Brothers 1818 so I think I'll hold off on the Sandalwood scent.

    Shave Shop still sounds intriguing to me, but if it is as weak as another poster said, I guess I'll have to pass. I'm all about sillage and longevity! I'd be curious to know if there is anything out there that smells similar to it.

    Incense and woods...that may not be for me. For instance if Mr. Taylors smells anything like Trussardi Uomo, I'll be running in the other direction.

    If the Eton College One smells like Obsession like one reviewer said, maybe that's what I'll end up getting.

    Well, you may now have made up your mind about the Sandalwood, but just in case, I would be prepared to make a swap with you from your swap list, if so kindly send me a PM.
