Good is always highly subjective and shave soaps are no different. No one soap is best for everyone and for any soap you'll find those that like it and those that do not. If you haven't tried it then you would have to experience it to answer your question. It has been a while since I've used it myself. I recall being happy with the performance though I didn't care for the scent. Sandalwood's my favorite scent, I just didn't care for the TOBS version. I think it seemed to "powdery" for me and I prefer a straight sandalwood -- though I do like DRH's sandalwood. As always, YMMV.Is Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood is good product?
