I love this product.
This was a part of a father's day gift that also included the pre-shave.
My wife really enjoys the scent, I wish it would linger a little longer but it is not a deal breaker.
Lathers very easily with my boar brush and my skin always feels nice afterwards. Unlike some other soaps I have tried the lather doesn't seem to dry up, which is a big plus.
I like the fact that there are not a lot of chemicals in the soap. I have had irritation free fresh clean shaves every time. My razor bumps and skin have cleared up and get softer healthier with every use. When you use this with a good shaving brush and good razor, you will get an excellent shave.
The scent is fresh and dissipates quickly allowing you to use cologne shortly after. I can't really describe the scent but I do consider it pleasant and light. There is still menthol or some other chemical in it that causes a "cooling/tingly" sensation when you use it. It caught me off guard but has become welcome and pleasant event to look forward to.
Water/soap ratio is important. You can have a really runny lather or a thick paste like lather if you do not have the right ratio. Its not too much of a complaint since this is always easily corrected.
Sometimes after using this soap and rinsing my face off the skin will be left a little dry. The right aftershave will correct that. In some ways it could be a pro because it washes off completely to prep the skin for the next step of your shave regimen.
