I really, really, really enjoy the scent of this product! It is soft but gentlemanly scent that makes you feel refined and sophisticated.
It lathers really well for me. I have face lathered and bowl lathered, both for great for me. It lathers best after soaking the puck and getting a generous load on the brush. Be sure to keep it wetted, otherwise it will dry out quickly (hence the "wet shaving")
I just use the puck, I didn't bother ordering the soap in the bowl. I would advise the same for everyone else.
TOBS Jermyn St. shave soap is a very good product. It has a scent that is (to me) the best anywhere. Like it's AS, cologne and bath gel, the scent is masculine without being citrus or floral.It lathers very well.
