Excellent Soap with a Great Scent!
This is the first TOBS soap that I've tried. I've used their several of their creams before, so I thought I would give the soap a try. I found the soaps to actually be a little slicker than the creams, and it offered about the same closeness with my shave. I performed a test lather before trying an actual shave, and in both cases, I was able to produce copious amounts of great TOBS lather. After both of those lathers, I can barely tell that I've touched the puck of soap. As I have way more soaps than I could use any time soon, I imagine this puck might actually outlast the smell! Speaking of the scent, this has the same scent as the Platinum Collection cream, although the soap may just be a little less strong, in the container. During the shave, and afterward, I found that the scent didn't wash away as easily as the cream's did. I absolutely love the Platinum Collection's fragrance. I would not hesitate to order this one again! My ONLY complaint with this is that the wooden bowl adds quite a bit to the total price. Unless you're just needing the bowl, or are obsessive (like me), I would stick to the refill puck. But I do like the black, wooden bowl a lot.
