Well, today I used RazoRock shaving soap for the first time and I'm already in love with it. This stuff is fantastic. It forms a nice thick lather that feels like a shaving cream on your skin. The smell is nice too and doesn't overpower you. Up until today I had not found anything that I liked as good as I like Taylor of Old Bond Street but now I have.

I take it this is what you all call a "croap"? I can see where the name comes from.

I think all newbies out there like myself should give this stuff a try!

I've read the LOA Artisan line is modeled after Cella, which is the main reason I've tried most of the other lines. Enjoy it Dave, the RazoRock products are great performers at a great price.

Im not into Italian soaps anymore (well,but Acqua Di Parma/RazoRock XXX or Santa Maria La Novella) but the RazoRock soaps are very decent soaps,good performers and inexpensive,when compare to other brands.
I wonder how is this new Santa Maria could be compare it with Santa Maria La Novella.

Tieste I will send you a sample of the S. Maria when it arrives in a week or so if you would like to compare and share your results.

I recently placed a large order that included the new La Famiglia soaps, and I made sure to get a jar of RazoRock XXX. It was the first time I had used RR and I concur--fantastic stuff at a very reasonable price.

(And the La Famiglia is outstanding, too, BTW)

Ben, I'm with you. The LaFam line is my favorite from RazoRock. I have all 4 scents. Initially the Don Marco was my least favorite, but now it's in my top 2. I don't know if it's the sweltering heat or what, but I'm really enjoying it now. The scent is so much better to me when lathered than just out of the tub.

I agree, stick your nose in the tub and the scent can be a little robust, but it is much subtler when lathered. What other scent do you particularly enjoy from the range?

I love the Zi' Peppino or Tobacco Verde. It's amazing. Where I live we have what are called smoking barns. It's where the tobacco farmers are smoking the tobacco to create what I think is called a dark fired tobacco. The smell that comes from those barns is amazing. The Zi' Peppino is fresher as it's the flower of the tobacco that they are going for. Still, I can pick up some subtle similarities and I really like it.

Sounds great Brian.

I'm thinking of ordering from the newly released offerings...

The "Mudder Focker" and the "Vetiver."

Shipping to Australia is the issue as usual... around $10 shipping per tub.

I love the Razorrock soaps. I picked up some Razorock Artisan Shave Soap -Boston Tea Party and I'm in love with the stuff. I seem to always get a BBS shave using it. My wife loves the smell.

Defiantly great soap.
