Good morning gents!
This morning I shaved for the first time with the new offering from St. Charles - oakmoss lavendula. I interupted my normal Sunday shave routine where I use St. Charles savory rose & some Penhaligon's Hammam Bouquet and went with the oakmoss lavendula as I've been opening the stainless tub daily to enjoy the scent. The soap has the same to notch quality as Sue's other offerings & the scent is not overpowering in any way. I was a bit hesitant when making this purchase as I am not a fan of lavender but the blend of oakmoss, lavender, earth & fruits is simply wonderful. As soon as I whipped up the lather with my C&E brush the shave den was filled with the soaps scent. As soon as my wife opened the door she asked what it was. If you are a fan of "distinguished scents" this is the soap for you.
I should also add that I received 15ml of the oakmoss lavendula scent as and EDT with my order. The EDT is definately stronger than the shave soap and I only used 3-4 shots of the spray as a test today. Upon drydown, I find the EDT to be excellent as well...perhaps leaning more towards an oakmoss scent than lavender. While out with my wife this AM I received 2 kind complimets from ladies as well. I think this EDT would be an excellent choice for all seasons. I plan to use what I have left on a limited basis until (if) Sue decides to offer it in her product line. You cannot go wrong with ordering this gents!
Thanks again for all your hard work Sue!
