Gents,

No surprise I am a huge fan of Martin De Candre, and their Agrumes soap is no exception!

Everything about it is SUPERB...and I revamped my lathering technique...new huge lather bowl...using a syringe to add water half tsp at a time...more patience!

The fragrance is that of a refreshing cold Sprite on a hot summer day!  The performance hits on all cylinders.

This lather was generated using five tsps of distilled water, and I loaded the damp brush for 20 seconds...probably enough for an 8 pass shave!

I’m amazed by MdC every time I use it. I often wonder why I use anything else.

If I had to get rid of all my soaps but one, it'd be MdC Fougere.

I had never contemplated using a singing bowl for generating lather. I guess your lather had a nice 'ring' to it, Matt.  Biggrin

What key is your bowl in?  I have one in C that is from one of the monasteries in Tibet from the 14th century, I believe. It produces a beautiful long sustaining sound.

Thanks Gents!

That’s a great Christmas gift to your dad, and the lather does have a nice ring!

I have no clue what key the bowl is in, but I can ask my wife later this evening.

Bahahaha!

I also have MdC in Argrumes and love it.  It was one of my first high end soaps.  It never disappoints and when I use it, I wonder why I don't use it more!
