The fine shave soap is finally available (in American blend scent). It promises the performance of tabac, with new scent profiles (as they will release other fine scents in the future). Who's going to be the first to try it out?

Mod edit : link removed.  Oops, sorry about that

I'm waiting on L'Orange noir or fresh vetiver

Thanks for the heads up!

Ordered two pucks and the lather bowl I regretted not getting when I got the after shave last time.

Hope it's great. 

Slant seems too light for me. I like heavy razors and have plenty of slants already. Looking forward to reviews though.

I took a conservative approach and ordered just one puck.  Smile

Anyone else sign up to get notified when the soap went up for sale, and then not get notified?  Oh well, glad I stopped by and saw this thread!  Went ahead and bought a soap.  We'll see if it's as good as Tabac.

Got the email, but I want to read some reviews first.  I have too much software as it is.  It sounds promising.

To be honest I didn't need another soap as I have purchased what I needed for the spring/summer months but I wanted an old time classic scent to press into a cool mug. Something to leave out in the den for the quicker day to day shaves.

Not worried about the slant but ordered the soap the second I got the notice!

Yeah, the Slant would be a waste of money for me.  Interesting concept but too light for my taste.

Ordered the slant because I've never tried a twisted slant before, and people rave about the Merkur Bakelite.  However, I may end up selling it because I am getting really amazingly good shaves right now with my wolfman.

Exercised some discipline and didn't order the soap...we'll see if I regret it!

A few months ago I was informed that this was in the works for spring of this year. That would be an excellent soap.

I didn't get the notification, but that's okay because, like most of us, I have too much shave soap and cream. I will be interested to see reviews. Maybe I can make it a reward for finishing the 7 samples (~60 shaves, or 3 month) in my closet.

I had no interest whatsoever in the slant but the soap intrigues me. I ordered a puck. Excited to try it out.

I decided to wait.  Had it in the cart but just couldn't pull the trigger.  Especially since shipping made it almost 18 bucks.  I'll let folks talk about it and see how it goes.

I am subscribing to this thread.  Really interested if the soap is as good as Tabac.  I wanted to take the plunge.  However, I have enough software for daily head and face shaving forever, including 3 pucks of Tabac.  I think I will wait for the reviews.
