First of all, 10 oz is a lot of soap. Between "Christmas in Tuscany" and ABCBA I now have enough soap for the next 5 years. As usual for a RazoRock product, there is a lot of value here. The soap can be cut into chunks and molded easily for just about any container. The scent is different and not timid. Reminds me of something PannaCrema might create but this is more bold. Smelling this directly from the package gave me an image of sweet custard pudding, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and citron maybe a hint of licorice. I took a small amount and bowl lathered. Lather was easy, in spite of my hard water. Scent was more tame after lathering. and was slick and rich. It gave me a smooth close shave with a very nice clean after feel to my skin. Similar feel, in a way, to Klars Seifen. This is a great shaving product. The scent did not seem to linger on my skin after rinsing off. Would be interested in what others thought of the scent.

I've ordered some, but it will no doubt take some time making its way to Australia. However, your review has me most eager now to try it!

Fingers crossed for a Tuscan shave here in Australia on Christmas morning (I ordered as soon as it was first released, so I'm in with a chance)...

Yes my water is moderately hard and it takes a while to lather and more soap is required. This soap was easier than most. I've been scratching my head trying to put my finger on what the sweet smell reminds me of and I just realized it smells a little like fresh cut hay when we were kids .

The fragrance contains coumarin, which smells like freshly cut grass or hay, so that likely explains what you smell.

Ah! that must be it then. The ingredients list is in too small a type for my peepers. Will have to track down my magnifier. This is a great shaving soap as usual for RR. Thanks for the input.
