I got this one in today. Took it on a test slide early this evening. What can I say! Performs well enough, tons of easy lather. The scent is not one that WOWS but it's gentle and quietly scented. The lavender scent is not a true EO scent, but the price is sure right at 2.75 for 300 gr! I would buy this one again. Another great value from http://www.shaveabuck.com

The numbers from 1-5 1= Keep your money! and 5= Great stuff!
Ease of lathering 5/5
Glide 4/5
Cushion 4/5
Scent 3/5 -not unpleasant or too strong
Recommend to a friend 4/5 -Yes I would!

I actually enjoyed the scent of both the Lavender and Cool versions, unfortunately neither passed the forearm lather test. The Lavender is a darker yet somewhat synthetic scent which is hard to explain but not common amongst high end lavender soaps and creams. The cool smells like an ordinary sport deodorant only not as strong. Neither of the scents are very strong, in fact I would say medium/light in strength.

When I get a new product I build a test lather and apply it to my forearm as though it were my face. I do this both to dial in the technique for lathering, test the longevity of the lather itself (make sure it doesn't go Trumper soap disappearing act on me) and to make sure I don't feel any tingling or burning sensations. I started doing this after having a small reaction to certain products as I would rather have an itchy forearm than face.

Comparable to some of the fakey lavender bath salts scents common around the holiday season at your local Walmart. This croap is a very light version of these. I didn't find it offensive and the scent doesn't linger at all.

I think it's a very soothing and relaxing lavender scent which I find is great for a nervous guy like myself. Awesome lather and skincare as well.

The lather quality was a pleasant surprise. It lathered easily even in the hard water I have here.
