Great scent and performance. I was a little wary of the scent at first, but now it is one of my favorites
Fruit, Flowers & Woods
The accord is complex, with woods and flowers, though my main takeaway is fruit. I smell a very forward Bergamot and Lime up front, and just a hint of Peach underneath. I struggled a bit with the lather. I thought I loaded up the brush correctly, but it just didn't want to lather in the scuttle. Finally, after about 90 seconds of whipping and 3 times adding water, I got it into shape. The lather was good, but not great. It didn't want to spread evenly on my face. It did better when I really worked it onto my cheeks. It seems to thicken and improve with face lathering. I thought this meant that continued application of water was the correct course and, indeed, my third pass was the best lather. But after adding a few drops for my bonus lather, I found the breaking point. It was a pretty thin final coating, alas.
Not For Everyone
I love this stuff: I get a terrific shave, even though the lather seemed a bit "flimsy" at first. WCS is right that this soap needs lots of water, but is great in the end. While my wife and I both like the scent, it's unusual (which I like), and some may be put off by it. For anyone feeling uncertain about risking the $25, you might just have to jump in, because I don't think WCS offers this as a sample.
