Wow, got my stick of Arko in the mail today (thanks Mannj14) and all I have to say is WOW! Now I know why everyone talks about this stuff. In short I would discribe it as "Lather from the gods, scent from hell". I have hard water and sometimes it is hard to whip up a good lather, but for $2 a stick this puts much much much more expensive soaps and creams to shame. I wanted to love it, I really did, but the scent I would describe as "overpowering", nauseatingly so. I don't catch the whole urnal cake thing, but I think it smells like a cheap lemon car air freshener right after it has been opened, and I just rubbed it all over my face. Lets just say it's airing itself out in my bathroom right now, and the scent is right at home doing so.
So Arko, I want to like you, I really do, but not so much that I will live with a headach each morning and avoid kisses from my wife to be with you.
PS. One side note, I was also not able to tolerate the smell of high end Castle Forbes Lavendar either, gave me a headache instantly (Arko at least took a few minutes). Hope this helps in your decision making process!
