anyone have any thoughts on this particular offering, or any of the other eshave hard soaps?
RR, you know how to make me feel bad! I have every one of their creams and not one of the hard soaps. I can say this, they come in nice looking bowls, if you order a bowl and not a refill... Nickel, gunmetal, and goldplate!roughrider said:Ron will probably know the answer.
eShave soaps are really nice; both lavender and linden avocado are part of my rotation. Their scents are quite straightforward and just strong enough if you ask me. Performance wise, they fare just as good as the other quality french soaps. Contrary to Ron though, I'm not fond of their coverless, small metal bowls. Fortunately, the soap size is a perfect match for an Anchor bowl.
As for the linden avocado in particular, its scent is similar to Provence Santé's but with more punch to it. Some may find it too floral, but I'm partial to linden scented stuff. This said, it is FAR from being intoxicating like, say, Pré de Provence.
If you can find these pucks at a decent price, I highly recommand them.
Mandarin is only so-so. The Linden/Avocado is better, but to me it smells and performs similarly to C&E SAO, which is a LOT less money.
I hate floral scents usually but love the smell of linden blossoms. The smell is bang on and the soap smells are not as strong as their creams. Personally I don't think the Linden/Avocado smells like the C&E SAO. I can't stand the smell of the C&E SAO as it gives me a headache and find it way to floral.
