In the first thread I posted today people said Arko soap was great but that the smell might not be all that wonderful.
And it got me to thinking...
We buy shaving soaps sometimes for the scent alone. Or at least the smell of the soap is important. I love the smell of the C&E soap that I am currently using.
But other than enjoying the smell during the actual shave, does the smell matter? Does the smell of the soap stay on your face? My guess would be NO.
Think about it. You lather up, shave, then wash it off. I doubt the smell of the soap remains. Once shaving, we often put a DIFFERENT A/S on our face anyway.
And even if we put on the same scent afterwards, how can we know that the smell from the soap stayed with us.
We'd have to shave, rinse, put nothing on to test this, but I would still think you don't detect much of the scent.
