Used this Succes today.  I actually used it yesterday, too, but didn't scoop enough out and then overwatered it.  (I got this as part of the H&S PO96 Ti passaround.). Today, I took my time and hydrated slowly. Great result.  Got to get some.

Great looking set ups, Gents. And agree that Ethos is quickly becoming the go to grooming products of choice for all my shaving needs. Still have room for a few favorites of mine in the shave den but, Ethos seems to be top dog as far as my own experience is concerned....

A great shave. After Ethos First Lather, the soap made excellent lather, and its scent was strong enough that I didn't need to add any from the extra bottle Frank sent. The aftershave was wonderful.

A very refreshing & satisfyingly good shave. Vector & Ethos is a real tough combo to beat.....

Just received my Dragonsbeard soap and skin food and decided to do some test lathering. Looking at the dark chocolate color of the soap, I expressed some concern to Frank that badger tips might stain, but he assured me that would not happen. Nevertheless, for these first lathers, I used my synthetic brush. First thing I noticed is this soap is firmer than my others. I used the provided scoop and smeared some on the bottom of my Aesop SS shave bowl. With a rather wet brush...yes, this is not usually my approach with ETHOS, I went to work. Boom....Foam---and a lot of it. I didn't get discouraged, but rather continued to work the lather until it began to come together.

I thought...well that took a lot of water. How much can I actually incorporate? So the next progression of pictures are after clearing the breach and adding about 4-5 drops of water. The lather remains stable the entire time.

This next lather shot is as wet as I ever get any lather. This ran right off of my hand when I turned it over. Suffice it to say, I had reached the breaking point.

Next, I went at the lather with my usual dryish brush, adding a limited amount of water very slowly. Results speak for themselves:

The scent has already received the SWMBOSOA (She, who must be obeyed seal of approval; all rights reserved).
The scent reminds me of Barrister and Mann Lavanille. Very heady and incense-like, but not cloying, like Murphy & McNeil Ouroboros. 
Tomorrow, I will give the soap the Primo shave test, but all signs point to a great shave. Well done Frank.

What a great shave, with a sandalwood heart. The old C&E cream made lather that was perfect with the EG post-shave products.
