if it shaves like it smells, then I can imagine!  I am hoping I can convince him to make an Anise/Peppermint/Rosemary/Vetiver scent duck fat only version.  (that scent combo was in a spray my wife just bought and oh my goodness it smells so good!!!) 

I can't wait for tomorrow's shave.

its "latherability" is scary Smile Though the soap is not softer than other GD soaps, I had to reduce my loading time from 30 sec to 15 sec, just to be able to manage the amount of the lather. Glide, protection, SLICKNESS and  post-shave feeling are OFF THE CHARTS.

Just shaved with Mallard - oh boy! Lathers like crazy and very slick, protective and moisturizing.  He is setting a new standard.

Agreed, I used it this morning and I still can't believe there is this much of a difference between his soaps and the rest of the pack. I never thought a soap would come along that I feel clearly differentiates itself from the vast number of truly excellent ones that are available today. On top of the absolutely incredible performance the scents themselves are just as good, they're non-linear and complex and continue to open during the course of the shave, I sense notes during pass 3 that were not there during pass 1. The great sell off of my huge collection of soaps is impending, there's nothing else I want to use.

I pulled out the vegan formula  and had forgotten about how good it is..
As a result of today's shave I placed my order for the tallow/duck combo..
Mohammad is restocking by the end of the month, plus adding a couple of new additions. I will definitely keep an eye out for them as well.

I just got done shaving with the Mallard, first in line of the three new scents. This was my first go at any of the Grooming Dept  soaps and I must say it was pretty   The  scent really opened up nicely when I started to lather and I got more of the sandalwood than I  did just smelling it off of the puck. 


Everything I used in today's shave was new, soap, razor, and brush. I wanted to use the hardware I'm used to so I could evaluate it better but I couldn't resist using all my new stuff. I loaded for about 20 seconds with really light pressure on the brush. The soap seamed a bit soft so I didn't want to be to aggressive if I didn't have to. While building the lather on my face I went back for a couple more swirls and it really started to explode. I was told it was very water tolerant so I kept adding it little by little and man is this stuff slick. It felt amazing on my face. The brush was a vintage M&F finest I picked up from another member here and hair on it felt just amazing. It was tough to distinguish how much of that good face feel was coming from the brush or the soap. 

Regardless the shave was one of the best I have ever experienced. Every aspect of it was superlative. The Charcoal Goods razor level 2 I just picked up was outstanding.  I can't wait to try it with some of my other hardware and see how it goes. It had a wonderful post shave feel after I rinsed and my face feels great. I had about 2 days of growth and I'm curious to see how tomorrow mornings shave goes with a little under 24 hours of growth.

Anyone know if this brand of soap is available at Pasteur’s in NYC? I know they stock lots of artisan soaps.

Nathan, not as of this past weekend. They did have the full lineup of B&M reserve and a nice selection of WK soaps. I hope they pick up the Grooming Dept soaps, as the two scents I have tried so far  were not keepers. Performance was quite good though, so I'd really like to find a scent that suits me.

Just checked the GD website and while it does show that the soap is sold out, there is another note in red (when you click on the label):  

This Soap will be available on October 14, 11:00AM-PDT ( It is not Sold Yet! )
