As you can read,this shaving soap has parabens on it,as well as nugmet and fig extracts,so I guess that parabens are use to preserve those natural ingredients better.

Its scent is really elegant as well as warm,but Im terrible describing fragrances.On the box I can read this :
Quote:warm spicy notes of Spanish Fig,nutmeg and clove resting on a base of sandalwood,cedar and exotic patchouli oil"

So,how on the earth is not going to smell good???BiggrinBiggrin

This soap creates a really thick lather,kind of the tallow based shaving soaps,and I would say that slighly better than the other ones that I mention earlier like the C&E or Floris ones,but not by much.
By the way,its shaving bowl is made of wood and looks really similar to the Floris ones.

I have enjoyed excellent shaves with it,and while its not the most slick shaving soap,takes care of my skin really well.Its not a top soap for me,but closer to the top,I would say.However,its scent its simply great,pretty manly and last through the shave.Its on the sweet spice side without being too powdery or really strong,so I seriousness congratulate Bath and House (or to the soap maker) for it.

This is a medium/top shaving soap for my taste and will stay with me,and Im sure once its finish,Ill replace it with other,but this time with its shaving wood bowl.
