tundra artica is a mega rose bomb. Rose dominates the entire scent pyramid. It’s my 2nd favorite after 70th.Great soaps. Felce, 70th, Colonia, Mirto and Flying Mango are my favorite scents. I didn't care for Cosmo or Stella. The rest aren't bad. Wish they would do a Rose.
It's so easy to lather and a little goes a loooong way!I've just made a switch to one pass shaves for most days. I load SV with synthetic brushes. My normal load time is 10 seconds. That is more than enough for three passes. I decided since I was only doing one pass ten seconds of loading seems like too much product. I loaded SV today for a flat five seconds. I still had more than enough lather for one pass.
I don't see any reason to convert them. I have all of the betas, and I don't see any difference that couldn't be attributed to different fragrance compounds affecting lather or just straight up batch inconsistencies.Anyone know why SV hasn’t yet converted all of its scents to the 4.3 base? Thanks.
Thanks. Interesting. Now I’m going to have to order more. Haha. I had read elsewhere that some believed 4.3 to be slicker, etc. and thus, considered them “better” overall. I’ll have to do my own comparison. I have Felce and Opuntia en route to add to Colonia. Might have to pause a bit though before the next purchaseI don't see any reason to convert them. I have all of the betas, and I don't see any difference that couldn't be attributed to different fragrance compounds affecting lather or just straight up batch inconsistencies.
FWIW, my best performing SV's are a pair of 4.1's and a 4.3. Heck, most people RAVE about Dolomiti, and it's 4.0.
I thought I read somewhere that they aren't all destined to be converted. I think there were certain compounds related to scent AND performance that would change the soap itself if the formula was converted upwards.
I could be totally wrong, but IME, 4.3 isn't inherently better than earlier formulations.
