I had read about how Cella might 'go bad' or turn rancid over time. I used a full tub and never had a problem. But then, I went on a mission to use it up after learning it might turn, and only kept the tub 18 months or so. My Tabac had been around for maybe twice that long. It had sat in its Anchor Hocking bowl for several months when I decided to bust it out again.
The scent from the puck was fine. But the lather had a nasty funk. Meh, maybe I didn't rinse my brush well enough from the last shave and Tabac didn't care to mix with whatever traces were left in the brush. Next shave, Tabac up again. Ugh. Definitely something wrong here.
Into the trash the rest of the puck went. I'm not sure how that could have happened, the soap was stored under reasonable conditions in the bathroom. It was at the most four years old. I have some Fat that old that's fine and some Arko that doesn't stink any worse than the day I pressed it into a bowl.
Tabac can go rancid too. Or at least mine did. Anyone else experience this?
Replacement puck on the way, can't be without my Tabac, even if I hadn't used it in months. I will make a stronger commitment this time around.
