Should a gentleman find himself down, out, and in need of a shave in London, one of the best places to go is the original Trumper barbershop on Curzon Street. Should the same man find himself in his bathroom in say, Tucson, Arizona, on any given Tuesday, the next best thing is a bar of Trumper's soap. Trumper's Oxford Blue Shaving Soap has a straightforward, clean scent and lathers up exquisitely. Note that it's a relatively small puck because it was designed for a custom shaving scuttle (a purpose-built mug for working up lather) rather than a wooden bowl. [$17 for 50g; westcoastshaving.com]
