    Default Looking for scent similar to Ursa Major shave cream

    I am new to this awesome forum and I have an odd request. I just bought shave cream by Ursa Major Men that has the most awesome scent. I would like to find a cologne that is very similar to this smell. Any suggestions?

    The scent is based on essential oils organic Grand Fir, Vetiver, organic Ginger, etc. I will try to find out if there is more.

    Guerlain Vetiver? I've never smelled the shaving cream, but Vetiver fits the bill, sorta...

    That's really good shaving cream. It has a really nice and unusual smell. I don't know of anything that smells like it, though. I'm curious to see how this thread goes, since that product is new and will not have been tried by many people on this forum and the smell is really odd. Good luck on your search, and welcome to Basenotes!

    The smell of the shaving cream is very nice, almost like Juniper but I guess it is the Fir that I smell. It is very clean smelling and outdoorsy, it is hard to explain but I have been asked several times about the scent.

    This shave cream smells awesome, nothing like Rive Gauche. Rive has a scent of its own.

    I just tried the suff yesterday. The scent is quite subtle. I confess I did not care for the cream itself as it does not really lather much... Back to Poraso and Trumper I go. As to matching the scent... I can't think of anything like it... Pleasant, but difficult to place...

    I will say the Ursa folks are very nice... Including a personalized handwritten note on my first order really impressed me and made me really *want* to like the stuff... Too bad really.

    This stuff smells great and there has to be something out there that smells like this.

    it is a real good shave cream but I prefer a lathering cream. But the smell of this is awesome.

    I noticed in the ingredients that there was many types of Fir Balsam & Fir Needle oil, Vetivert oil, Birch, Sandalwood, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang oil, etc.
