Glad you like itMy sample arrived yesterday and only had 1 shave with it so far (a REALLY) generous sample, but, wow, I have to say this is good stuff. Took my time over building the lather (face lathering), kept adding water as suggested and found this can really take (and benefit from) plenty of water. Ended up with a fantastic lather, lots of it, with cushion a plenty and very very slick. My skin felt great afterwards, the scent (Valentia, a nice vetiver)) was the perfect strength for me, a nice medium. I don't like super strong scents, I tire of them quickly.
Overall - I don't know if @Brianh has made soaps before this, or how long it took to develop this one, but my first impression is that he has nailed this one just great. I will be buying some of this (well actually asking the missus to get me some for Christmas).
