I tried this soap this morning and I must be doing something wrong. I could not dial in the water to soap ratio. Once I got a usable lather, I got a good shave. I like the fragrance of this after the shave. It is a fresh scent like that of walking in the wooded area like it's still wet or moist. I would use this again especially in this hot weather. Temperatures are in the mid to upper 90's here in Baltimore.
