Luxury Lather Shaving Creams, 75ml Tube by D.R. Harris
All D. R. Harris Shaving Creams are made using top quality concentrated cream with a high proportion of glycerine for an extra soothing and moisturizing shave.
The cream should be applied to the face and lathered up with a good quality shaving brush that has been dipped in warm water. This produces a profuse lather which will soften the beard for a more comfortable shave. The tube is great for travel.
Arlington is a subtle blend of citrus and fern.
Marlborough is a subtle blend of woods including cedar and sandalwood.
D.R. Harris Shaving Creams are also available in tubs.
Hard shaving soaps are also available.
The story of D.R. Harris begins just before 1790 at No. 11 St. James's Street where Harris's Apothecary set up shop. Over the next fifty years the family established a reputation selling Lavender Water, Classic Cologne and English Flower perfumes to this fashionable quarter of London.
One of the proprietors, Henry Harris, was a surgeon, while Daniel Rotely (D. R.) was an early Pharmaceutical Chemist.
For over two centuries this family business in the centre of men's Clubland has served the gentry and the court of St. James's and in 1938 was awarded the warrant as chemists to her Majesty The Queen, later the Queen Mother which was held until her death in 2002. In 2002 they were also appointed as Chemists to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, an honor that was added to in 2012 when they received the Royal Warrant for Her Majesty the Queen.
Today D.R. Harris is still located in their traditional Chemists' shop at 29 St. James's Street.
