    Magnificent is the right word for this soap. It lathers so easily, the scent is pure elegant, exotic, and gentlemanly, and a godsend for sensitive skin. A soap like this will turn a shaving hater into a shaving lover!

    I agree with Jeff here , I actually owned this soap for a while and underestimated its presence. but now its a must shave with soap in my rotation.
    The scent of this soap is not like anything out there its original Verguldehand owned and these guys have been making soap for 450 years ! they must have learned something wouldnt you think ?

    Good Stuff!

    I am not 100% on the scent but its by far not the worst. (the more I use it the more I like the scent) It is also a tad pricey and hard to get but well worth it.

    I find the scent a combination of exotic and old-school. Very rich, and classy, something a wealthy businessman, or a president, prime minister, or king would shave with. How I wish there'd be an edt by De Vergulde Hand--I'd grab it in!

    Off the scales!

    I am having a really tough time not using this shave soap every single day. The shaves I get are very consistent, and extremely close.....yet protected.

    Lathers quickly, lathers easily, with a scent that'll make the ladies swoon :rofl

    An absolute favorite of mine, and its obvious De Vergulde Hand has a 450-year history making soap....they have it perfected :happy088

    I used it for a long, long time (thought, there were no other soaps availible, till I got internet). I never got a full, rich lather from it and never, never soft shavings :o. It felt, I was using an electric-razor (I tried 2 or 3 times in my live :ashamed001).

    A lot of people like this soap, I don't. The only thing I like is the scent. And the price: it is a cheap soap and for me, you get cheap results.

    But it is all personal :D.

    I'm with H. Herdick on this one.

    I also used it for a long time, due to a lack of better knowledge. Whipping up the beginning was O.K. but it takes ages and it always remained a thin, flimsy foam. Resulting in a lack of lubrication, softening, and a lot of skin irritation. Good thing is that, for me, it's cheap, basically the cheapest thing out there.
    The scent is nice though, although it is far to light for my taste. It almost disappears after a few seconds.
    Plus after each pass you have to whip it up again for like a minute.

    Just my 2 cents.

    High-quality soap at a reasonable price.

    It lathers well, smells terrific.

    My only problem with it is I wish the scent, which is gorgeous, was stronger.

    Very smart buy.

    the soap harms my skin. I don't care for the scent. So why should I buy one again?

    Hi there,
    the soap has a nice light smell.
    But its not really recommendable, because my skin is very dry after using the soap.:ashamed001

    Ich stimme mit Dir ueberrein--der Geruch ist ja toll. Vielleicht, Du hast empfindliche Haut wie ich. Jedoch, ich finde dass diese Seife sehr sanft und beruhigend ist.

    All you need in one!

    2 words. Personal best. Highly recommend. In that 'desert island' situation I'll go with DVH soap. It works great and effective, softens the stubble well and the glide is effortless. Nice soapy scent, great lather! LOVE it!
