I recently added Arko shave soap to one of my maggards purchases to try it out for the first time. I have dozens of artisanal soaps and some of the classic mass production soaps, but I usually stick to artisanal. I needed to add a few bucks to get free shipping and I’ve wanted to try Arko so I added it. The scent is disgusting to my nose. Off the puck and lathered there is a strong industrial cleaner scent reminiscent of a urinal cake. Scent aside the performance for me is absolutely awesome. I love the protection slickness and most of all the post shave feel. I have only used it 3 times now but every time is fantastic. The scent keeps me from using it. Any others out there feel the same way?
