Trumpers - Almond

So, I still seem to be experiencing a fair bit of variability in the shave quality of Trumpers creams. This one I found turned out to be a fair chunk better than all the others I’ve tried. I don’t know, maybe they’re all the same and it’s just really fiddly, and I got lucky with the almond. Anyways, I had previously mainly had issues with the lubrication of GFT creams, this wasn’t an issue this time. It needed a fair bit of water, but this didn’t result in unacceptable levels of thinning out, unlike, for example, the violet.

The almond scent is a nice one. It’s your classic sweet almond / marzipan scent. It’s a tad on the weak side: nice and strong when you’re sniffing the cream itself, or the brush after lathering, but it doesn’t carry over very strongly when applied to the face.

  • 9/10 Scent Pleasantness
  • 7/10 Scent Strength
  • 8/10 Quality of Lather

So, overall, I’d say it’s a 7/10. A bit stronger on the scent could have bumped it up.
