These come by 8 pucks of 2 oz in a carton and are meant for barbers / professional use. As I mainly use professional stuff, I was interested. The Williams method (water on top of the puck) seems to work. With a horse brush and a boar brush I could get a lot of lather out of it. Not as creamy as some other soaps, but good enough. Efficacy is good, the razor glides well, no irritation and a close shave. The scent (lilac vegetol, whatever that may be) is new to me. Not bad. It lingers for quite a while, most of the day even. But nothing strong, just a faint smell. Resembles Classic Fern most. My skin feels good after the shave, soft. Nice, worth a try. But probably best with horse or boar brush, after all it is professional stuff.
