I took my tub of winter glide to the office and there was much rejoicing (after I explained what shaving soap was) ha! The scent was universally appreciated. I had my first shave this morning, and I’m still blown away with the performance of this base. I’m not a pine guy, but this scent absolutely works for me. It’s just the right level of each scent-profile - and who would have thought of ozone + cranberry?! I love it!

+1 I took Glide Winter to the office yesterday to let the resident scotch/cigar expert get a whiff. He loved it.

Such a wonderful base and scent.  Perfect lather doesn't come any easier than it does with Glide.  

Great pic Merkur Man! Exactly what I go for with Glide. When I'm done shaving and squeeze out my brush that's what I want to see.

There were questions earlier about the Barbiere Sapone scent.  I got it for Christmas and it generally smells like mens bar soap -- something in the realm of Irish Spring or Zest.  It also smells fairly similar (although less distinct) to B&M Barrister's Reserve Classic which is based on Gillette Sun Up and has "notes of citrus, lavender, moss and sandalwood".  Barbiere Sapone isn't my favorite scent, but it's nice and the performance of both the Glide soap / matching aftershave is top notch.

I know scent is subjective but Irish Spring? Barbiere Sapone smells very close to Pacco Rabbone. It's warm, spicy and I get a huge hit of amber and tobacco.

B&M Sun Up smells like powdery lemons, not even remotely similar to Barbiere Sapone.
