Great shave soap

Outstanding performing shave soap. The scent is clean but nothing too strong. Another reviewer said "neutral scent." I think that is a good way of putting it. It is a little soft (softer than their other scent, Earth of Mankind). I did not put enough water in my brush and was getting a few small pieces of the soap in the brush. My suggestion to swirl the brush in the container (get enough on the brush) and transfer to a shave bowl. The slickness/glide is outstanding. The razor just passed over my face without any effort. Residual slickness was very good. After rinsing off, my face felt moisturized. I do wish it was not so expensive. I got on sale but at $25 a container, it is a little pricey.

Delightfully Neutral

This is a very pleasant shaving cream that produces a thick protective lather, and has a delightfully neutral scent. It is supposed to smell like an Indonesian Barbershop in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Jakarta - and it captures that scent quite well, having been to indonesian barbershops in Jakarta. It's hard to describe, so I won't attempt - but I will say that, with a similarly neutral aftershave, it is pairable with a cologne of your picking and won't clash/compete for scent.

Slick

This is a nice shaving soap. First time I've used a soap with this base. Seems to require more product to make the same amount of lather compared to other soaps I've used but the end product is thick, creamy and lubricates well. Smell is okay.
