MW lathers up just fine, whether I use a badger, boar or synthetic brush. Plus the aroma--oh, the aroma--of orange/vanilla. Who cares how long it takes to whip . . . just so long as you can smell the stuff.
FWIW, I whip up plain MW lather first (I am a bowl latherer, and now use a Robert Becker scuttle), then add my favorite uberlather goodies. It just makes great lather even better.
The shaves ain't bad either. Slick, quick and painless using an R41 with Astra SPs.
I figure I owe myself at least two more MW flavors. They are good enough to eat, never mind shave with.
