I used it last night.  Initial impressions are that it's very good.  Nice and slick, protective without being too dense.  It holds a lot of water and benefited from paintbrush type lather building.  I built my lather with a Paladin Bullgoose LE Somerset #4.

It’s unmistakeable as a Jabonman soap and that’s a good thing, IMO.
Scent notes are refined, balanced, nuanced; with no one being over dominant. Overall a pleasant olfactory experience. This is not a cloying one as some other European LEs have been for me.
The base is classic jabonman with soft earthy notes prevailing. Lathering the soap awakens the fresh citrus and florals which dance around for a bit and then fade softly.
10/10 here, especially with the retro label artwork that completes the deal.

It reminds me of vintage AdP, only with better performance. It's a 10/10 in my book, and my favorite Jabonman soap. It's too good to be an LE soap, and something Phil should always carry. A matching ASB would be nice.

Manuel is actually making me another batch with a matching balm. Great minds think alike.
