Ok, so this is weird, but hopefully cleared up really quickly. I was fortunate enough to receive some Wickhams Parma Violet as a belated Xmas present, it smells as gorgeous as ever, but never having owned anything other than a sample (of any shaving soap) I was a bit surprised by how it looked. This may be completely normal - but I just wanted to check with those that have more experience than I. To me I looks like it's been used, 'brush' marks in the soap, and it's all pushed up against the side of the tub. I guess I expected it to be flat and smooth the whole way across?!?
