I am thinking about picking up the Citrus.  I have the berg/bay and like it, although i wish the scent were stronger.  The Citrus gets such good reviews but i am having a hard time wrapping my head around orange.  I have shaved with Lime (CF) and Lemon (Stirling), but for some reason orange scent seems strange.  The reviews on this scent are so good.  Am i being a fool??  If i do get it, should i get the matching post shave lotion too?

Buy it now..!! It's wonderful, the orange is subtle and surrounded by lemongrass and lime. It is without a doubt the best citrus I own/ have smelled..!! The post shave lotion to match is bliss IMO..

I have both soap and post-shave lotion, and they are great. It's certainly not orange dominant like Mike's OC&BP, but a blend of orange grapefruit and lemon. I love citrus scents, and this competes with Mike's lemongrass & eucalyptus for my favorite... it's fantastic. *Note: the post shave lotion has a milky consistency, vs. a thick lotion. Works a treat.

If you have to ask you have to try for yourself.

It's a great scent and outstanding performer. 

The balm is rich and decadent. 

The two are not intensely scented. The VOCs dissipate eventually but during the shave and at least an hour afterwards the natural layers of Citrus are really good and present. Not cologne like staying power and not a flash in the pan either.

Agreed, its a complex scent.  Not overly orange, and much more interesting than anything Stirling puts out.  Must-try scent imo.

Part of the wet-shaving experience is discovering what you like; what works best for your face, etc. While the CRSW brand doesn't work for me, you should  make your own decisions and discoveries. It's have of the fun.  Biggrin

I like the scent quite a bit.  I went through a puck of it and enjoyed the shaves a great deal.  IMO, even though there are multiple types of citrus scents in it, it is orange dominant.  But I loved it.

Would you guys say it is a warm weather scent or do you use it in cold weather too?

CRSW Citrus soap has an amazing scent and its performance is outstanding. Probably the best soap with tallow I've tried to date.

It's the truth, Larry! I wish I had tried one of your soaps earlier. From the moment I tried the Citrus v.2, I haven't bought any other soap with tallow. It's that good! Keep up the excellent work!
