I was sent a sample of Vitos a few weeks back. Fantastic stuff. Nice scent that largely disappears as it's lathered. I'm a fan of light scents, so this is a plus for me. Loads the brush very easily, heck, everything is easy with this soap. It works great too. Truly a fantastic soap.
OK, so on the strength of Vitos I decided to buy a kilo of P.160 from the Italian Barber. Everything Vitos is, P.160 is more of I think. Loads even easier than Vitos, that's probably why I had such mounds of lather too. More product = more lather. I didn't shave with it, just a test lather tonight. Nice almond scent, stronger than Vitos in the block, stronger as lather also, but far from overwhelming, just a nice muted almond scent. It smells like it should be spread on something and eaten. The 4th ingredient is tallow, the 5th is coconut oil. How can it not work great? One observation... it is very very soft, almost like putty. I didn't put the Vitos in the container, but it struck me as being even softer than Vitos. That's probably why it loads the brush so easily. It would be speedy for the barber. A few swipes with the brush and go. I'm really looking forward to shaving with this in the AM.
I plan on using those 2 soaps all week, swapping back and forth daily to notice what I can about each. I'll get back to this.
One final note, anyone who has trouble producing lather needs to buy a block of soft Italian soap. I can't imagine anyone not being able to use either of these and not get great useable lather the very first time.
As I wrote, when I think I've observed them enough to comment further I'll come back to this.
