    That about sums it up. One might even say it's unscented.
    I have a few EOs that I will add to and mix in with lather. Three drops do it right.

    I keep using the ARKO stick, because it is simple, inexpensive, easy to lather, and doesn't smell like mosquito repellent. :D

    Williams - my pucks are vintage and, therefore, have no smell. It produces a nice stable slick lather... For many years it was the slickest soap I'd ever used. I'm curious what the modern pucks smell like, but heard it doesn't lather as well.

    Arko is a perfectly serviceable soap, too, but I don't love the smell or consistency.

    I was gifted a vintage puck of Williams. Yup, great stuff.

    Curious what the modern smells like? Go to any garden center. No doubt they sell mosquito repellant candles. Shove your nose in amongst 'em and you'll know in an instant what it smells like.

    Arko for ease of lather and value. And now for availability.

    Arko in general but vintage Williams holds its own.

    Looks like there are more ARKO users . maybe if Williams went back to the old recipe, things would be different. It's kind of like Shulton Old Spice vs P&G Old Spice.
