Can't wait to hear you opinion on the lather. Very beautiful packaging. Love how Larry has stayed true to his base of Goats Milk... I think that really gives his soap a great property that I have come to love about them.

I expect the performance of the soap will parallel the cool looking tin.

Thank you for all the kind comments regarding the new Select. I am happy that so many find the packaging attractive!

To those wondering, yes I believe you will find the performance lives up to the presentation. The Select is designed to be a truly luxurious experience from the packaging to the performance of the shave soap.

Finally, all orders received over the weekend have been shipped, please enjoy!

I have both.

Select generates a creamier lather, and offers even more sublime post-shave skin conditioning, without the waxy or 'coated' feeling that some tallow/lanolin soaps leave.

Keep in mind, Classic is already an outstanding soap in this regard.

Thanks for the reply. I agree that Classic is very good. Still, it sounds like I'll want to add a Select when he adds more scents. I'm not a big fan of sandalwood and have more than enough lavender scented soaps already.
