Culmak Shaving Soap, cost in the Uk is about 5.09 (GBP) for a puck and bowl, a refill costing around 3.27 (GBP). Right so it's not the cheapest, but it's also not hideously expensive...... I found the lather was good, although if not enough water is added in the first place the lather can become dry very quickly. Overall the scent is a bit of a "Hmmm I thought I smelt something", in that you can smell it if you wedge the puck up your nose having just opened the packet, which for me is perfect as I don't have to think about what scent I'm wearing to avoid scent clashes. Overall a good shaver, not OTT expensive and gives a very rich lather easily.
