    Because I'd read about Mickey Lee Soapworks closing up shop I thought I'd better try a soap before it was too late.
    I'm very glad I did, it's a great performer with a beautiful lavender scent and excellent post shave.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Enjoyed my first use with the Aristocrat. It has a larger head profile than my current favorite OC, the RFB. But I'll keep using the "36 'Crat several more days to get a feel for it.
