Just got a tub of this soap. Used it for the 1st time yesterday.
All I can say is, wow. Another winner. I like strongly-scented soaps, and this one doesn't disappoint. It's a single-note lavender, and a high-quality one at that. A bit herbal, a bit medicinal, and a bit minty. Perfect. And shave-wise, well...it's one of Mike's soaps. Need I say more?
When I stumbled onto B&B 5+ years ago, like most of you I began experimenting with almost every product I could get my hands on. I quickly became a fan of QED, mainly because his soaps lathered well, were scented strongly & were all EO-based. I'm still a fan but a glycerin-based soap is never gonna give you the protection, luxury or post-shave skin feel of a quality, tallow-based soap. But now? To my mind, Mike is rapidly becoming the QED of tallow-based, artisanal soaps. IMHO, we're all very lucky to have him around.
