Take yourself back to the great Victorian Era and shave in ultimate luxury!

West Indian Limes, a fragrance which beyond any doubt belongs to English Classics, is a rich, refreshing and zesty citrus blend with top notes of Citrus, Litsea Cubeba, Lemon, Orange and Lime enveloping its floral heart of Orange Blossom, Lilac and Rose and resting on a bed of Oakmoss. Since Christopher Columbus discovered the West Indies and claimed them for Spain in 1492, the Spaniards and later the Danes, Dutch, English and French gained great wealth from sugar and tobacco grown in the West Indies and took delight in exotic plants, fruits as well as spices and their unusual fragrances. The delicate, but powerful fragrance emitted from the leaves, flowers and citrus fruits encouraged their use in a variety of infusions and soon became popular in royal courts of Europe and England. Truefitts??? first citrus fragrances were originally formulated in 1870s and quickly became favourite of Queen Victoria as well as gentleman and ladies of her court. The ?ǣImperial Bouquet???, especially blended for Queen Victoria by Truefitts??? perfumers in 1876 to celebrate her crowning as Empress of India, was in fact a floral fougere with zesty and exotic top notes of citrus and orange blossom from which present day West Indian Limes fragrance evolved. West Indian Limes was reorchestrated in 1989 with great success making it one of Truefitts??? most popular, classic scents, which to this day remains favourite with British Royalty.

When activated with water, Truefitt & Hill???s glycerin based shaving creams produce a rich, creamy lather, preparing the skin for a truly close shave. These traditional style creams may be applied with or without a badger hair shaving brush and are particularly well suited for a gentleman who prefers to carry his selected fragrance throughout the entire grooming process.

Truefitt & Hill celebrated 200 years of operation in 2005. They maintain the world???s oldest barbershop and are barbers and Royal Warrant holders to H.R.H., The Duke of Edinburgh. They are considered to be one of the foremost authorities on shaving and men???s grooming. This truly is a product for the discerning shaver who appreciates quality.


2 reviews for Truefitt & Hill West Indian Limes Shaving Cream Bowl (190g)

  1. Mark

    This is one of my very favourite creams. It has both the desired qualities of top lather and a gorgeous smell. I was drawn to it originally after buying the matching cologne then reading rave reviews about this cream and this certainly is indeed the same grade of product. Easily whipped into a rich and creamy lather which shaves so well, it is always a pleasure to use and makes for a relaxing and close shave, every time. Couldn’t falt it in any way!

  2. Douglas Fisher

    A marvellous shaving cream with a bright, invigorating fragrance which smells great. I mix it with a bowl, Kent BK8 badger brush and it whips up into a thick, smooth lather which easily provides enough for 3 – 4 passes with my Merkur Futur DE razor. Yes, it may well be more expensive than some of the other creams, however I would regard this as a top line product and one to put on the Christmas wish list!
