I put a puck of Tabac in an old empty Razorock XXX container. I've added so much water to it that it has turned into a croap. I still get excellent shaves from it. I don't remember how old this soap is. the fragrance has faded and isn't as strong as when I first got, but I still like. I've been just using other soaps and creams that I want to try so it doesn't get much use right now. I know when I use it I'm in for good shave.
I'm tempted to sell off many of my soaps just to keep a handful of fresh ones in the ole cabinet. Even with this sickness of collecting enough soaps to build a small raft out of, I can see the value in just having a few high performing, classics like Tabac. But who am I kidding? I have it bad for soaps... gotta admit though, coming across Tabac sure changes my perspective.
If you were a child in the 70s or 80s, you might remember cheap musky scents in all the adults' medicine cabinets, or the way grandpa smelled when he swooped you up to give you a hug, but unless you have bad memories associated with those scents, there is no way you can find the smell of Tabac offensive. At worst, it's an outdated cologne type scent but you'll probably just smell fresh soap. I'm starting to really like it actually. It isn't even strong. I just shaved about two hours ago and it's completely absent now. Faint to begin with. This is one cool soap, friends. One cool soap indeed.
