I just picked up a tin of this on ETSY. I've always liked fall scents. Especially pumpkin stuff. They have it in 5oz or 8oz gold tins I believe. I've heard good things about these soaps so I figured it was worth a shot. Who else thinks this sounds good?

I have and use the Cavendish version of their soap and is quite good. Easy to lather, slick,nice cushion and after shave feel. Just placed an order for the 5oz tin...good intro price too.

Last fall I got a sample of a Pumpkin scented soap from Saint Charles Shave. It was amazing, bordering on epic.
It smelled exactly like a freshly baked loaf of pumpkin bread just pulled out of the oven. Loved it.

So, from my perspective, I think you'll probably enjoy the new Synergy soap a great deal.

I have a tin of Pumpk'n 3.14. It's fantastic! If you love pumpkin pie/spice scent, you'll be in for a real treat. I'm tempted to eat it, but I'm sure that wouldn't end well. Smile

How's the Cavendish (pipe tobacco) scent, decent ?

The Cavendish scent is quite nice and very well done....if you like pipe tobacco then this is the one for you....it's not overpowering at all but you can still pick up all of the sweet tobacco nuances. Best part is that it lingers throughout your shave. Used mine this morning with my Chubby 3-2 Band.

I received my tin of the Pumpkin 3.14 and it smells fantastic! The packaging is the coolest of any soap or cream I've ever owned. The gold tin goes really well the art on the sticker. I'll report on the lather once I shave with it.

I shaved with it and it lathers great. Easy to whip up, thick and protective lather with good slip. However, something in it burned my skin which is unusual for me. It's only the second soap or cream I have ever had that problem with. I'm bummed out because it's a fantastic soap otherwise.

Try checking with the owner, I saw a post on Facebook that some of the pumpkin scent went out as the prototype soap by mistake and may have a burning sensation for some people.

Thank You for sharing.
Wich kind of burn did You have: already applying the lather, or after shaving?
Can You explane the fragrance of this soap?

Ciao

Shave with it today :

[Image: DSC_0273-01.JPG?m=1382455666]

BRILLIANT skin care , and I will say ti again , brilliant.I have very dry skin and sensitive and this soap provided a lot of protection , as well as a thick and quiet slick lather.

However , its scent...oh boy...its strong and like pumpkin pie.Too sweet for my taste and likes.

Its a very good soap indeed and 100% vegan.Nice for the makers of this soap , which I will pick up with another scent with no hesitation at all.

I received mine yesterday, but it was in the silver tin. I have only test lathered it and to me if smells fantastic. I agree with whoever said it smelled good enough to eat. I shaved with B&M Nocturne today and it made my face red and gave a burning sensation. I really hope this doesn't do the same thing. I'm bummed I didn't get the gold tin.
