We have all benefitted from the explosion of fine artisan shaving products over the past 10-15 years. So many truly wonderful choices indeed. Getting caught up in that endless pursuit of the Holy Grail of shaving soaps, feeling the need to try a never ending introduction of new products and their improved versions, I tend to forget about some that were once highly regarded and personal favorites. As the weather turned cooler here over the past month, I was digging around in my soap drawer and found a years-old wooden bowl of D.R. Harris Windsor. Took it out, gave it a whiff, and thought "wow, this is really good" as it brought back a flood of memories. I'm sure I haven't used it in at least 5 years, but had to revisit this old cool weather favorite. I ran a little water over it, and sat it aside overnight to rehydrate. The next day, as soon as I started to swirl the brush on the puck, I was hit with that warm, woodsy-orange-pepper scent once again. I had a very rich, thick lather in no time, noticeably thicker and more abundant than most of the soaps I've grown accustomed to using. I did a one-pass shave with my Henson razor/Astra blade, and the result was outstanding. Smooth, slick, easy, and comfortable. I'm telling you, this stodgy old puck was every bit as good as any of the newer artisan soaps I've been using over the past few years. I have been using it regularly over the past month, with no letdown whatsoever. For me. it more than holds it's own, and remains a fine, luxurious soap that desrves to be appreciated amongst all of the wonderful, newer options.
