Has anyone used this soap? If so, could you give a quick description/opinion. It's an inexpensive soap to try, but I'd have to order it, possibly pay shipping, etc.

Thanks, guys.

I picked it up once when Londons was still open since they had it stocked on the shelf.

One whiff convinced me that I wasn't interested in it.

I recall the odor being very strong and pungent, but that's just my opinion.

I picked it up locally, and it doesn't produce a shaving lather. Just a foamy mess. Other reviews have confirmed this independently.

I've heard it doesn't produce a good lather, however maybe it could be down to technique? If this is the case it wouldn't hurt to try it out and if you do, load it with a drier brush then usual and load it heavily and slowly add a little water at a time and then see how it performs. I have a feeling that those who have used it probably were using too much water or too wet a brush.
