Can someone give me their thoughts on performance/scent/etc?  Soap and AS?

I've searched on here, just wanted to start a dedicated thread.  TIA.

I have the Bosco soap and aftershave and they are both excellent! Soap has great slickness and post shave to go along with a very nice scent. The After Shave Balm is actually my favorite next to IColoniali mango Balm.

Yes, I mentioned the balm earlier today. It's become my favorite. Great performance.

I think Sapone di Paolo balms are the best of the best. I use his unscented balm frequently when I don't want the scent of a balm to interfere with an EdT. I also enjoy his soaps, and especially enjoy lime (Agrume) and coconut-vanilla (Cremoso). I think that these are outstanding products, and can't recommend them high enough.

How does the Agrume compare to other citrus scents?  

Similar to Hydra?

I have the lime, it's very good, The basil adds a freshness to it. The only down side to me is the scent is relatively light other than that can't fault it. Smile

The Agrume is the only scented soap I have. I like its mild scent, the lather is always thick and rich, and post-shave feel is great. Usually when that happens, the product ends up being reformulated or discontinued. Since that hasn't happened here, I consider it another soothing ingredient.

I just received Agrume and used it this morning.  It gave a fantastic shave!  Agrume has a very unique citrus/lime type scent that is maybe a 6 out of 10 scent strength and it had a very very thick lather that took in a ton of water.  I gotta say, I was super impressed for a 12.99 soap.  I will probably be purchasing more of these in the future.

The soap looks like a typical shaving soap? Its probably on the softer side of medium, gives in to a push from the finger, and is white? I'm not sure what you're looking for Starkicker.  It reminds me of the way say, Barrister and Mann Latha looks?  Typical artisan softer white soap.

Honestly, I'm impressed for the price.
