This is the 2nd soap and aftershave combo I've tried from 345 Soap Co. Ive been really pleased with both. The scent is really pleasing and has decent staying power. Trench line is an homageto Lacoste white. I can't say if its close, but I can say this smells really good. The soap makes a nice creamy, slick lather. The post shave feel after using the splash and balm was amazing. Face was bbs and soft without being oily or greasy feeling.
