Lately, I've been using a sample of this soap. A very generous member, thanks again Richard, was kind enough to send me a big sample of it.

The scent is simply amazing. I remember when I first opened the package, a wonderful rose scent came out of it. It's simple, not complex. It's straight rose. I don't know if they were using EO, I don't believe they were, but it's very nice, better than all the well-known English shaving creams I've used or smelled. I also prefer it to LPL Rose de Pushkar, which contains cinnamon. CRSW Oliva Summer Rose is closer to the scent of it, but it also has some green notes.

About the lather, it is very easy to make a good one. A few drops of water is enough to make a rich, dense lather. It's a soft soap, but not overly soft. For example, it's harder than LPL and Cella.

It performs very good. I had no problems using it with my razors. The protection during the shave is very good. However, I think that CRSW Oliva Summer Rose performs slightly better. The latter has better post- shave properties and my skin feels more hydrated when I use it.

I'm enjoying this soap very much so far. I pair it with the Thayers Rose Petals tonic, which smells almost identical to the Klar. My expectations were high after reading some very nice reviews about it, but I'm very satisfied and not disappointed at all.

As you know, this soap has been discontinued.

Thanks, Nick.  I just came across my stash and your review motivates me to put it into action again.  Nice stuff, indeed.

Enjoy it.  I used quite a bit of it over the years and enjoyed it as well. 

Now that it is in unobtanium status, I went with Soap Commander Love.  It has a very similar scent and works very nicely.

As mentioned alrady elsewhere in this forum, Klar only changed the recipe in one respect (palm oil instead of ... I forgot) and produces it as Dusy men professional Kabinett for professional barbershop suppliers, 500g for some 17EU.
There is a badger&blade thread discussing the (nonexistent) differences.
Look for offers at German ebay, sometimes German amazon, German barbershop supply internet stores.

As nikos.a said: a very enjoyable soap!

I never tried the Dusy but the Klar is awesome. It's the only rosy-scented soap that I really like.

I have both Dusy and Klar kabinett.
They are the same and both terrific.

I found three places in Europe that list it for sale on their websites. One ships to USA. The others do not. I emailed them anyway and asked if they would.

The one place that does ship to the States is much more expensive. Shipping is obscene too.

Will see what the response is tomorrow from the shops in Germany.
