This soap from Mike's is the best shave soap that I have used in my quest for the best. The scent is true to a bay rum and present after the shave but also not overpowering. This soap makes mountains of slick and protective creamy goodness during a quick lather and is one of the easiest to use that I have found. The shave with this soap is fantastically smooth when paired with a Feather blade due to the slick protective qualities of this soap. My quest for the best shave soap may not be over but Mike's is a winner in my book and should have a frequent rotation in every man's shave den.
