Is it just me or do a lot of people get too hung up on the shaving soap scents? Sure, no one wants to be shaving with a soap that has an unpleasant or offensive smell to them, but how long does the scent stay with you after the shave? To me the scent is inconsequential at best. I enjoy a good smell as I am shaving, but once finished with the shave I rinse my face well, apply alum, and finally aftershave. At this point, any scent of the soap is long gone. So, sure, I enjoy a nice scent of the soap, but it never influences my option of it. Performance is king and the only determine factor in my opion. Besides price of course.
