I just got home and to my delight, I had just received my Mitchellís Wool Fat Shaving Soap refill http://www.design-emporium.com/store.../ShaveSoap.htm. I opted for the refill since I already have a shave mug and did not feel like shelling out $60 for the soap and porcelain bowl.
I opened up the soap but did not detect any particular smell; it smelled very neutral but clean so if you are expecting something scented you will be disappointed. Now to the good stuff, the soap lathered like there was no tomorrow. I could not believe how well this stuff took to a brush. I did a total of four passes but along the way added a bit of water here and there.
The result was fantastic, after pat drying myself I was treated to a face like a babyís bottom; this soap did such a fantastic job. I know it might seem steep at $19.95 but I am sure even if you shaved with this thing every day it would last quite a long time.
I finished off the job with some St. Johnís Bay Rum West Indian Lime aftershave and cologne, very refreshing indeed.
A big thumbs up for Mitchellís Wool Fat Shave Soap!
