Here's another example of what I mean by "old-school" and traditional. This soap has been around since long before I was born. I can remember seeing it when I traveled to England, but since I was using other kinds like DR Harris, or Taylors, etc, I never gave it any thought. Well, I recently received a bowl, and I put it to the test this morning. I took a good shower, and then splashed some hot water on my face, and then after wrapping it in a hot towel for a few minutes, I took my Omega brush, wet it, and swirled it around in the bowl for a around 20 seconds, and began to lather up. The scent is awesome, it's so pleasant, fresh, and clean, something like what you'd expect in a barbershop from the 60's or even the 50's. I then used my Dovo straight razor, and I made sure I went nice and slowly to thoroughly enjoy the experience. After the shave, I rinsed off, a splash of Pinaud Bay Rum aftershave made me feel just super! All I can say is wowwwwwww! This soap is to die for! It shows that sometimes, in fact quite often, what our fathers and grandfathers used is just as good, and possibly even better.
