I had approached Jose of Joserra soaps about making an LE soap for me a few months ago. He sent me about 16 different samples to try out and Kush immediately rose to the top. I shipped the scents to Ricardo for a second opinion and he too thought that Kush stood above all the other scents. 

I am lousy at describing scents but I did know that I really liked it. The scent profile is described by Jose as a masculine woody oriental accord with opening notes of grapefruit, lemon and rhubarb which lead to a rich woody heart of patchouli, cedar, orris and jasmin on a base of labdanum, sandalwood, guaiacwood, amber, musk, leathery castoreum, tonka, vanilla and a hint of raspberry.

It is really a nice scent and one that I think most people will enjoy.

This will be a very nice offering, and the scent is a BullGoose exclusive.  Los Jabones de Joserra has done LE's in Europe, but never one for a US vendor or forum.

I was provided with a sample of Kush, before it was selected to be the soap for this LE.  The sample is enough for several shaves, so I tried it today.  This soap produces abundant, quality lather quickly, even in Miami's hard water.  The brush is a Simpson Trafalgar T3 synthetic.

Can you offer any description of the scent, Ricardo? Btw, what do you think of the new Simpson brush?

Jose says that my order should ship by the end of the week. Hopefully the transit time isn't too bad. Here is a little teaser picture.

Charlie, I think the scent description from Jose, in Phil's initial post, is a good summary.  However, I don't pick up the opening notes of grapefruit and lemon.  I  just don't detect citrus notes in this soap.  

Th Simpson Trafalgar T3 brush is an amazing value.  Simpson quality at a price competitive with the Chinese imports.  I don't know how Simpson pulled this one off.  Later this week I'm posting a comparison of the  Chubby 2 and T3.

Phil, the labels for top and side of the tub turned out excellent.  Of course, what matters is inside, and this is a fine LE soap.

The soap shipped on May 21st but, International shipping has been incredibly slow during the Pandemic. It is finally in the U.S.
