When Provence Sante first arrived in the mail about a month ago, I thought I had made my first shaving soap aquisition mistake. The scent, to me was overpowering. My wife said it smelled like bathroom cleaner. I tried it a few times and it does provide a very slick and dense lather, but hey, so did Tabac and I enjoy the scent of Tabac much more. I also thought Provence Sante was very irritating. So, Provence Sante was banished.
Then one day, I decided to break out Provence Sante for a straight razor shave. My straight did not skip once and I received one of the best shaves of my life and with no irritation. Turns out Provence Sante and T&H Pre-Sahve oil do not mix well for me. So, today I once again tried another Provence/Straight razor combo with the exact same superior results. I did not know a shave could be this close. While I still enjoy the scents of Tabac, T&H LSS and Proraso more, my straight tends to skip more with those and I do not get as close a shave. Provence Sante's banishment is now officially over. The scent has also grown on me too.
Give Provence Sante a try!!!
