Hi guys!

I read in the Night Music info the following message:

Please be aware that the high levels of vanillin in Night Music soap may discolor bleached badger and boar brushes. We suggest using either unbleached brushes or synthetic fibers when using the soap.

Do you have experience with this?

Thanks

José, I had Night Music and used a Shavemac 2-Band Silvertip, solely with the soap. The hair discoloured, but I found that after 3 or 4 shaves with other soaps, it disappeared. Personally, I wasn't keen and sold the soap.

I just got mine and am curious, what's up with the layer on top?  Does the scent change once you get through to the second layer?

the soap will eventually turn all dark with oxidation and time.

Oh, right so there's no difference it's just oxidised on top.   Makes for a pretty cool two-tone effect which suited the the product and packaging.  Not the most attractive lather to smear on your face tho.

I've not tried Night Music, but I was put off by Lavanille's lather. It looks like a cappuccino.

With so many excellent soaps available, why put up with these types of issues?

Because they like the scent and performance.

I really don't see it as an "issue." The performance is outstanding and scent is very unique and one that I thoroughly enjoy. A slight/temporary discoloration of a brush is really of no concern to me.

I can easily think of several commercial and artisan soaps/creams that are well established and celebrated, with distinct scents and superb performance.
Personally, I find it intriguing that people are willing to to put up with weird staining issues for the sake of so called 'scent'. Odd.

Sure, but none of them smell like 'Night Music' do they. The "staining" is temporary anyway. The same "issue" has existed for a while now with 'Lavanille' too. I don't see why there is so much concern about it to even be thought of as an "issue".

Presumably it is an issue for some if this thread exists.

I can think of quite a few as well. There are many well established soaps I enjoy also. I am completely willing to accept the fact that you feel it is "so called scent".... Nonetheless, it is an actual scent that some enjoy including myself. A little temporary brush staining may upset some, I guess I'm not one of them. I suppose I'll have to try to find peace with being "odd."

Hmm.  Borderline name calling over a soap.  Certainly one with opinions attached.
Carryon gents.
