    I no longer find it on their site.

    Yes. It's gone. Caswell-Masssey hasn't been making the best decisions lately. I think the only men's scents they're keeping are Number Six, a newly reformulated Jockey Club, and the previously reformulated Newport and Greenbrier.

    Tricorn is a decent frag.

    I think Caswell Massey kind of lost its way in marketing a few years ago, introducing a lot of lukewarm offerings.

    It's my favorite soap company, though, and the almond cold cream is my daily soap. And the company has real history.

    I liked tricorn, too. I vaguely recall Newport was the only one I didn't care for, because it was so strong.
    Current Top Ten:

    1. Creed Millesime Imperial

    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Creed Virgin Island Water
    5. Chanel Eau de Cologne
    6. Thierry Mugler Pure Havane
    7. Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme
    8. Bulgari Blu
    9. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    10. YSL Kouros

    there was a six pack of the almond soap at my local tj max recenltly and i have to admit it smelled like a prettty good quality to most of the other almond smelling soaps i have smelled...usually people look at me funny when i am in the soap sections of these types of stores because i am smelling everything in site and i am a guy.
    14 sprays of DRAKKAR NOIR should do it

    Yes, the almond soap often ends up at discounters. I find it at my local Stein Mart pretty regularly. Also, Caswell Massey puts it on sale to its regular customers pretty often. I don't remember the listed price, but I think I usually pay about five to six dollars a bar for it.

    My first love is Santa Maria Novella's almond soap, but that's about three times the price.

    It seems Tricorn may have been a very nice fragrance at one point in time. I had a chance to dab on a small sample and was not happy with the overt powdery character and then rather forward vanilla into the dry down. It just didn't feel like it should have, based on the notes that have been described (which I think are more applicable to an earlier formulation). So... I'm VERY happy to have it off my list, as prices for those little 3oz bottles hit $100+ most of the time, which is money I'd rather put towards higher quality niche.

    I used to love Greenbriar before they reformulated it. That was pre-Basenotes, but I think I'd still love the old version.
