Krokos and Buttero. The warm, rich leather fragrance of Buttero—the newest soap from Abbate Y La Mantia— combined with the magic of saffron in Krokos. Perfect for a cold winter morning. Use a scuttle to keep it warm and enhance the experience.

What's your favourite winter super-lather?

I don't think I've ever done a super-lather in the five-plus years I've been using a brush and soap, but I like your choice, David.

That sounds perfect (even though they both are perfect solo).

It’s a hard pair to beat. I like lower scent volumes, and this ratio gets the Floris scent down to a good level and the XPEC doesn’t hurt the performance.

Cheers, Steve

Thank you Matt!

XPEC is also cheaper so it extends my Floris dollars, lol.

You never struck me as "cost-conscious", Steve Smile

I’m not, but I don’t look gift horses in the mouth either! Lol.

Seriously, one of the hallmarks of the great perfume houses is that the products are scented many times stronger than mainstream products, scent quality aside. If you prefer a less strongly scented experience, unscented XPEC works without altering the other scent.

Cheers, Steve
