I am a soap guy..so soap.

I think DR Harris is one of the best English soaps still made.

Arlington is a green citrus scent. Nice.

Lathers great, glide and cushion are good. Highly recommended.

I just bought the refill, no wooden bowl.

It's a great performer, and the smell is very nice. Starts off citrusy, with herbaceous undertones. I like it a lot.

I've used both and they are both very good products.

I prefer the soap to the cream though.

I would rate the soap as one of the best I've used.

The cream, though, whilst a nice enough cream, is surpassed by TOBS, Cyril R Salter and Vulfix creams in my experience (they're also significantly cheaper).

The soap is one of my favorites and will always be in my rotation. It is easy to lather and rewards you with rich creamy lather. Definitely top shelf!

I have tried both the soap and the cream.The cream has a stronger scent,however the soap provides a better skin protection.Ill go for the soap.

You are going to really enjoy it. Don't worry if it smells like lifesavers when you first open it. The candy smell goes away within a few shaves. This is my best bang for buck soap yet, I have somewhere around thirty shaves(head and face) and there is barely a dent on the puck.

I have the soap and it has a clean citrus smell with lots of quality lather.
If you like citrusy scents, go for it, but the smell is not to die for, I must admit. The smell reminds me of lemon cologne, widely used in Turkey.

Lemon scent as in Pe Re Ja!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Burak, that cologne is a top summer favorite of mine from your country! DR Harris Arlington cream or soap are both very nice, however the prices for them here in Canada are too high.

Recently I bought a puck of DRH Almond. Any specific scent is almost not existent. It smells just like clean soap. But I find its performance incredible. Today I got samples of Arlington and Marlborough. I liked both scents a lot. To me the Arlington scent is identical to 4711 which is my favourite AS/cologne. So far DRH is in my top 5 soaps list.

Like everyone else says, good performance and nice clean scent. I wasn't a fan because there wasn't anything special about it.

Exactly, Jeff! Pe Re Ja has almost the same smell like Arlington. It is a nice cologne,I use it time to time.

Can't speak for the soap...not yet at least, I'm sure it will make its way into the medicine cabinet once some space is cleared.

Big fan of the cream, in terms of performance and scent. High marks for both versions, so can't go wrong either way.
