To my nose the scented Luxury soap is a clone of Grey Flannel. Grey Flannel is about as divisive as Arko's scent; it's very much love it or hate it. I happen to love it. In fact, I bought a bottle because of how much I liked the scent of the VDH scented Luxury soap.VDH is fine for the money. I like the "Luxury" variety for its mild, mango-coconut tropical scent (to my nose, anyway). I wouldn't call it a luxury product in terms of scent or performance, but it works.
That said, with VDH raising the price of the Luxury soap, it's no longer a good value, IMO. I'd much rather buy Proraso croaps/creams for $3-5 and then apply some Grey Flannel after I finish shaving.
