I find the Fine shaving soaps absolutely superb, in performance, quality of lather , its slickness and their scents.

Also their scuttle is quite good for its price.

And the Sandalwood after shave lotion is a must try for every wet shaver and lover of Sandalwood scents

Do these guys make a bad or so-so product ? I just wonder

Some people are not fans , but I definitely am of the soap . I think it's a wonderful performer and a great value.

the aftershave splash might be about $5 overpriced because it's just scent and alcohol , so some people complain about that . And I think rightly so.

I must admit that I use the after shave like a cologne and the Sandalwood scent lingers for hours and hours

I have to try their creams

Thanks for your inputs

Soaps are good but not elite IMP. Love their splashes though!

It truly is , my friend

If you love AoS sandalwood you’ll love Sandalwood Absolut after shave lotion.

Good Tabac-esque performance soap. I received a new puck of platinum yesterday and the scent is much weaker than previous one's I've had? Barely perceivable, I would say 1/10 on the strength scale... I also know of someone who recently purchase an Italian Citrus soap and returned it as it was also practically unscented. Both of these soaps were new and the latest version in plastic containers.

Perhaps a good thing for those sensitive to strong fragrances but due to this I'll not be buying them again in future.

I hope they didn’t reformulate...

I've never had anything but a flawless, easy shave with Fine soaps.
The Aquamarine scent was pretty lame, IMO. Light, non-descript, boring. Didn't even lather it, just sold it.

good lather has no suds

INCI is the same so... Just reduced the fragrance oil % I assume.
