This is absolutely a great soap! It lathers easily and offers superior slickness and very good cushion. A soap very similar in performance to Tabac. And the scent explodes when making lather! While scent isn't exactly like the aftershave, its very close. As someone else has stated, the scent is what Bought a puck for a friend and he loves it! One of my favorites now too, and I've had over 30 different soaps and creams. Congratulations to FINE for creating a classic masterpiece!
