About 2 months ago, I received this great cream along with a whole bunch of other Arko products as a gift from a very good friend of mine. I was a little confused the first time I shaved with it, because as the name would imply, you'd expect it to be mentholated. This cream contains no menthol whatsoever, but it does smell wonderful, it has a scent that would remind you of the tropics, the lather it gives is enough for 2 men to shave with, and the shave you get is great. When you finish shaving and rinsing your face, you feel refreshed and energized, and the scent lingers! I think this is a cream to be used in summer or in warm weather places, because of the unique, beautiful scent, and refreshing effect it has.
