Though it about time we had another cream thread........ Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away….. people used to pay homage to the ones known as the 3 T’s (Trumpers, Taylors and Truefitt & Hill) and pretty much everyone agreed – they were good. But this did not last. People began moaning that they being made by a single company – Creightons. The fickle, naysayers and snobs alike pooh-pooh’d this industrialisation as being a step towards Gillette-ism and grumbled of the loss of individuality (unlike say, Mr Xavier Speculum who sits in his bedroom, milking unicorn tears and charges you for his privilege - allegedly). To this I say cobblers. I have used many creams, with different labels, but all made by Creightons and there are clear differences in quality and performance (good to really good) and these are reflected to an extent by the difference in price – T&H being that little bit nicer and more luxuriously priced. This is not supposed to be an anti-artisan rant, so please don’t take it that way, it is just to say that just because a company manufactures a variety of brands, it does not necessarily mean they are blands.
