Good morning Gentlemen,
I´m new here, 44 yo austrian, wet shaver since 1982. My actual tools : Feather AS-D1 razor, Feather blades, Mühle Silver Tipped Badger Shave Brush, black thick beard, bullet proof skin.
The soaps : Valobra Almond, Woods of Windsor, I Coloniali, Taylor of Old Bond Street Lavender & Sandalwood, L´Occitane, Savon du Midi Vetiver, Knize Ten, Mühle Sandalwood, Mühle someplantdontknowtheenglishname.
Tried and dumped : MWF (smell), Tabac(smell), all Colonel Conk (lack of lather)
And of course ARAMIS. Aramis (classic) is for me the best fragrance for Gentlemen(EdT).
Dry, elegant, not overpowering, very longlasting and very good quality Aftershave and Deo. Closes the open pores and helps avoiding shave burn.
The Shaving Soap smells like the EdT, just amazing. Lather? Alot, but not thick at all, doesn´t stick on the skin, doesn´t lubricate, it´s just a tragedy. I have tried all tricks, water on the soap in the mug over the night, scratched the surface befor lathering.
The results are poor. does anybody know some other trick to lather this stubborn but amazing smelling Shaving Soap?
Have a nice day !
