I'll second that.  I received Vetiver Nobile a few days ago.  I also found it to lather easily, good protection and very slick (great residual slickness).  It's a pretty straight forward vetiver.  I was a little disappointed that I didn't get much grapefruit at all from it.  I thought the two would be a great combo.  Still a very solid performer and am not disappointed in the purchase.

Keep working on the lather and even put more water in... it gets better and better the more you work it

Heard about that soap 24 ingredients if I'm not mistaken that's a lot. But if it's true that scent is mild/light I wouldn't get for $19, that's just me.

How is the scent of the patchouli? I'm looking for a rather strong scented patchouli. And I haven't found one yet.

It's a nice Patchouli but it's not strong he is going to be going to up the scent strength

I couldn't find this soap with a Google search.  Perhaps somebody could point me to a place where I could read the ingredients list?  Not in the market for a soap, but always interested in checking out ingredients lists of soaps that others find to be good performers.  

Thanks.

For some reason it doesn't come up with google.   I just bought Bonum Mane a few days ago.  You can go to their facebook page and they have a link to their website.

Completely agree with the OP, this is fantastic soap. You can watch the evolution of it on Instagram from version 1 to the current formula over the last year and a half, a lot of time went into this formula and it's a great one. It's been darn near 5 years since I used a soap exclusively for more than a week and this is the only thing I've used since I received it.

I, for one, was put off by the title of this thread, and by the "BUY THIS SOAP" yelling in the OP. How about putting the name of the new soap in the title and some FACTS about the soap in the original post, and letting us decide whether we want to "buy this soap"? I'm always happy to hear about a new soap, but I prefer to decide for myself, based on evidence -- individual testimonials are fine, BTW -- whether it's "great" or not. It comes down to a question of credibility, really.

The soap is made by the Grooming Dept. It is very slick and has excellent cushion. I own over 100 soaps and this is one that goes to the top of the list whether you choose to buy it or not that's your decision I'm just sharing something I experience that's excellent and other people are feeling the same as well I don't care if you buy it or not it doesn't make me a penny and I do not know the maker I'm only sharing and trying to make people aware of something that is an excellent product. By the way I thought we were still living in America and we have freedom of speech I could write what I want and you could choose to take it how you want I did nothing offensive or hurt anybody. It was coming from a good and honest place. Next time before I post something I will check with you and to see if it's ok and to your liking. Come on everybody let's all lighten up and have fun that's what shaving supposed to be about enjoyment of a hobby

I'm often willing to try a new soap. I just ordered the patchouli. If it shaves well and the scent makes me go "mmmmm" then its a keeper for me.

Just received Patchouli and Vetiver. Did a test lather and I must say that this soap mightily impressed me on all counts. Will shave with it for the next couple of days, so I can provide some  information on its shaving and post-shave properties.

Just ordered Elan as I'm a sucker for just about anything with Juniper Berry. Looking forward to trying it.
