    Any of you Gents have any experience with Aramis shave soap. I found 3 pucks in the back of my closet yesterday. Herself apparently bought them for me back in the day and never gave 'em to me. Figured I might give 'em a whirl.

    Never heard of it, but it kinda funny how you found the pucks.

    What's even funnier is that when she met me I was using English Leather AS. Well, she didn't like that. She started buying me Aramis 'cause she liked the smell. So I started getting the AS, the EdC, the EdT, soap on a rope, you get the idea. Apparently she bought the shave soap not realizing you need a mug and a brush. Then she put it away and out of sight out of mind, it's been hibernating for a loooong time.

    I have a puck of Aramis shave soap I picked up from a pass around box. It takes some work to get a stable lather, but the scent is awesome and once you get it dialed in its a nice soap. Will have to use it soon to make sure I still feel the same way about it.

    Thank you for putting a puck in the box, love the scent of Aramis. A bit similar to English Leather to my nose, but more complex.

    I had to give it a go for todays shave since we were talking about it. Whipped up a very slick lather and the Aramis scent is awesome.

  11. I love Aramis. Its my #1 favorite shave soap for performance and scent. it is my most used soap at least 2-3 times week. I don't understand why ITT isn't more popular than it is. 10 sec load and lots of water, massage the lather its not necessary to beat and flail. Don't bloom or you will have waaaay ttoo much soap. if you have an issue with the lather try less soap. It really is a top tier soap in performance, scent and skin care..

    I LOVE the scent of Aramis but the soap was tough for me to lather. It worked ok after a few tries but I don't like to spend too much time trying to get good lather.

    Macy's sold the whole Aramis line at the local mall but the soap disappeared a few years ago. Where can you get the shaving Soap now? .

    So, I used my Aramis shaving soap today for my Focus shave. Lathered up well, but between passes it started to dissipate. Consensus of opinion was not enough product. Next shave I'll definitely remedy that. On the plus side, the den smelled great, and the lather was slick.

    I've seen this soap locally, and have thought about getting it. But I need more soap like a hole in my head....
    Though I do like the smell of aramis, dad always used the AS balm.
