I was lucky enough to be PIF'd two types of the De Vergulde Hand Soaps, both the regular version and the Extra Fris.

I cannot tell you how much I love the scent, it has one of the cleanest, freshest scents that I have ever smelled in a shaving soap.

The lathering ability is second to none. It produced a thick luxurious lather in no time that felt silky soft on my skin. When it comes to soaps I am normally a tallow fan, but this soap produced a lather as good as if not better than both Tabac and MWF.

After one use I can easily say that the DVH will become a regular part of my rotation, even if I need to bring it in by the case!

I have not seen it available in the US, but was informed that both Royal Shave and the 'Bay has it. In my opinion a US distributor need to jump all over this product and start importing it.

So, what are the differences between 2 scents?

Steve, the extra fris is a citrus type scent. They both have fresh scents, but the extra fris is a fresher type.

I looked into bringing it in, the price is amazing once it crosses the pond, and to make a decent profit (100) units) it would be near $8-$10 per tablet. Of course it also has that level of performance.

I agree, it's nice stuff. I had to let mine air for a few days, but once I did it's quite nice.

De Vergulde Hand -- It's Gold

Thanks for this Arley. It reminds me that I haven't used either in too long. An amazing value considering its performance level.

I have the regular De Vergulde Hand soap which I love in every aspect - the scent, lather, and post-shave feeling. I have never tried the Extra Fris.

This is the most wonderful underrated shave soap there is in my book. I have a stick, Shaving cream, and both varieties of the soap as well as some AS Balm. I'd love to have the splash but got in on it too late and it's been discontinued.
