    Good Stuff, I really enjoy the Cade and always thought AOS shave creams were also very good. Enjoy your stuff.

    What I have used from your list is the Cella, Cade soap and cream (the soap is one of my favorites) and Crabtree (not the lime though) all are great products. With a list like that you should be able to make it about a week or so before you want something new. Happy early birthday and I hope you enjoy all your new toys

    Great selection, Sean. May I suggest you add the C&E West Indian Lime Cologne to go with the soap. It's my favourite Lime scent and unlike most citrus scents, has pretty good staying power too.
    The Cade soap is superb. Can be a bit finicky to begin with but once you get it(hopefully first time), the scent, lather quality, and post shave feel are all outstanding. Not sure about the cream though. I believe they have reformulated it since I tried it a couple of years ago, but back then it had dire reviews and I found out why.
    Enjoy your selection, Sean, and have a Happy Birthday.

    Cade is great. The scent is called juniper I believe. I used it yesterday.

    I have C&E lime cream, the scent is nice, just wish it would stay around after the shave. Might look at the cologne that was mentioned here.
    Happy birthday.
