I personally put a lot of stock in a simpler ingredient list, good quality essential oils (not fragrance), American-made and affordable so I am a fan of Stirling soaps and will probably be a return customer.
Side note: the unscented and Shea butter bath soaps have been great as well as the vetiver aftershave.

The other two are in "the box in the basement." There are simply too many other really excellent soaps in my drawer.

While my test lathers last night were promising and the scent is very enjoyable, I just did not enjoy the lather from this soap at all. I believe that it's the castor oil, especially since it is high on the ingredient list; 2nd. I have oily skin as it is so anything with a high oil content doesn't work well for me like preshave oils and aftershave balms.
So while the lather was dense and extremely well hydrated (I kept adding water trying to make it better) it was very tacky. It kept sticking to the razor, blade, and me. I almost never have blood when using the Streamline but today was blood-y. Even an hour after my shave my skin still has a tacky feeling to it. I feel like I'm going to stick to anything my face touches. I feel sorry for my kids and wife today.
At least I learned free of charge (Thanks Rudy) that I need to be careful with soaps that have a high amount of castor oil in them. So if you have dry skin & both preshave oils and aftershave balms serve you well, then this may be a great soap for you.

My skin feels terrible after appliying the lather. It's burning and it feels like my skin will break up the next few moments...I only had that bad feeling by the use of my Erasmic shaving cream.
Very sad to give it up because the scents are really really nice.

I don't want to open the others although I love the scents, I thought someone else might be able to give them a go,
Not everything works for everyone,
