The CRSW X soap is an exclusive, limited edition collaboration with BullGoose Shaving, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of BullGoose.  The soaps, of which 120 were made, began shipping on Monday, April 8.  I received mine on Wednesday, April 10.  There are likely to be a number of reviews and comments about this soap, so please post them here and we can have them all in one place.  

I have used this soap once, so these are only initial and preliminary comments.  CRSW's Glide base has received widespread praise, so the performance of this soap was a given.  The scent is another  masterful creation by Larry.  All of Larry's scents are nice, but my favorite ones are his Sandalwood in the Select base, and and his Olfactory Hue in the Glide base.  Immediately upon smelling this soap, you will realize that it's sandalwood dominant.  However, this is a different sandalwood blend than in the Sandalwood Select.  I have to try the soap several times to get the scent nuances, because there is much more going on here than sandalwood.  However, it only takes one whiff of this soap to conclude that it's a superb scent.

ok then I had my first shave with the X  Sbathroom_grooming_shaving_100-100

superb lather with only a few drops of distilled water to counteract my hard scrabble Connecticut water  Love

lovely scent before during and after the shave.

wonderful glide and cushion for 3 passes (enuf lather in the bowl for a few more passes if needed)  A47

a NEW DFS (damn fantastic shave). if any of you gents can think of a word better than fantastic...

My only known shave soap allergy is to anything with lavender. I seek description beyond “lovely.”

the scent is light and floral in a barbershop-ish kind of way. sorry that's as much help as lovely, but Phil and or Larry should be able to give you the details on the ingredients of X.
