    I see that Executive Shaving is now stocking Castle Forbes' latest shaving cream - in the much respected 1445 scent.

    Has anyone tried this so far? What are your thoughts? How does it compare to the original three scents?

    OK, so it seems we don't mind giving the vendors a plug on these forums... Now back to my question if that's OK?

    Sorry, but wasn't sure if you'd seen it. Have you used CF before? I rate them very highly, best cream I've used. Have to admit, I didn't know about the 1445.

    Ok thanks.
    Yes I’ve had both limes and lavender in the past, with the latter being my preference.

    I love the smell of the 1445 cologne/Eau De Parfum so I have high hopes for the shaving cream. Just wondered if anyone has tried it already that’s all.

    Fantastic. I didn't know this was being released. I absolutely love the scent of 1445 (I have the balm and EDP). I shall order some now.

    I have just asked Anthony at shave lounge if he is going to stock the cream, @p.b I'll send you a sample if I grab a tub.

    I hadn't heard this either, but if it's Castle Forbes, I'll pick up a tub for sure!!

    I used it this morning and as expected it is superby efficient, lots of razor glide and cushioning. The scent is subtle and very green if that makes sense.
    LIke the other three Castle Forbes Creams a tiny amount is all that's needed for a 3 pass shave.
