Alluring photo, Matt. A real beauty.
 
Oh, the Dark Side cometh.... Nicely envisioned, Guy.
Thank you Ron!
At first I didn't think I would like this soap as I am not really into the leather smell with soaps and that is pretty much all I got popping the lid but once lathered took on a whole new aroma. Hard to describe it, but I do pickup of the sweetness of ambler and blackberry but not too sweet. Kelly states ozone and ginger as two other ingredients and it is a unique aroma but one that I like and find myself cracking the lid to sniff now and then. The Aftershave on this one seems to have more menthol in it for a nice bracing feel on the face and aroma last a long time on me

Sounds like one I would like. I've got a little catching up to do with Black Ship. Thanks, Guy.
