Subtle talc fragrance leaves you smelling clean and dapper.
Suds well, even with hard water. Great lubricity as well.
When Oleo decided to release a Barbershop scented soap they (And when I say them, I mean Vida) definitely put a new and welcome spin on the scent. The soap creates a very thick and cushiony lather with plenty of protection. Did I mention slickness? Holy Cow!!! there was tons of slickness. Overall it was an amazing shave.
Being somewhat new to DE Shaving I have stuck pretty much to the larger commercial soap offerings. After catching a YouTube video from Steve Walker who had gone to the meet up and received one of these and spoke well of it I knew I had to try it. I was very pleased with the sickness of the soap as well as the rich dense lather it creates...definitely offers good protection. As for the scent it has a lovely vanilla/cinnamon kind of scent to it I do enjoy it. This was my first artisan shave soap and I plan on purchasing some of Oleo Soapworks other offerings.
