It was my first ever shaving cream so I have a soft spot for it. You can get a 3 pack (mixed) of either soaps or creams on eBay for ~£10. It's fine but won't provide the same quality of lather as your TOBS. Still a perfectly acceptable lather though.

I think, for once I got it right 1st time, I will stay with TOBS plenty of different fragrance to try.

Thanks for your help it's been interesting looking at what's available.

I think you did get it right. I’ve used a variety of TOBS shaving creams over my +50 years of shaving and although I do stray occasionally I always revert to TOBS, usually Rose and Lavender. I think the TOBS range is hard to beat in terms of quality, performance and price. Also, I love visiting their Jermyn Street store whenever I’m in a London; even my wife likes visiting the store, which is most unusual.

I might have to take my wife there, not been to London for quite a while.
