Just received this nice stick with some other stuff yesterday and here are my findings:

Ease of lathering: 10/10--Boom, a lather explosion right away.

Longevity of lather: 10/10--Perfect stability for a multi-pass shave.

General skincare: 8/10--Pretty good. No complaints at all.

Scent: 8/10--EXACTLY like an Arko stick. Soapy and clean.

Price: N/A--I traded for it so I don't know the price.

Would I buy again: 9/10--Very, very possibly because I like it.

My thanks to the great country of Turkey for putting out this fine stick which is so similar to the already renowned Arko stick. Same great lather and soapy scent which I love and this soap provided a comfortable post-shave feeling to the skin as well. The packaging is in some ways very much like the Arko stick, but the GZD is made by an entirely different company.

Your findings largely matches mine Jeff;

The GzD is just as good at making lather with decent glide and cushion as the Arko is. The scent is not nearly as strong as a freshly unwrapped Arko, and reminds me more of an Arko stick that have been left unwrapped for a month or two.
