Here are my thoughts as I have used it for 5 days now Ease of Lathering - no problems here, easily produces a thick creamy lather regardless what type of brush used Longevity of Lather - never a problem, lather stayed stable for a lllooonnnggg time Scent - I got a crisp, fresh linen scent that stayed nicely through the shave but was pretty much gone after the final rinse. Didn't conflict with A/S Skincare - a bit disappointed here. The lather was/is plenty slick but seemed lacking cushion. My face needed help after the shave every time Price - N/A, was gifted this one Buy? - I don't think so. This is a pretty good soap, just not for me.
