    Does the Electric Sheep remind you of the Vintage Menthol Williams Mug Soap that was around in the 80's and 90's. I'm wondering if the scents, and lather are similar.

    Not at all!

    My brother-in-law says that the Electric Sheep smells a lot like Williams but I don’t think so. It smells and lathers a million times nicer than Williams and has much better skincare!

    Well, I think I figured it out. I went to use my Iced Coffee yesterday, and found that the spot of white soap had turned dark brown! It must be an oxidization of sorts or some part of the curing process. I’m not totally sure, but it seems to just be part of this soap’s formulation.

    cheers

    My Man Hands Brewed Coffee is mainly brown, but there's white in there also.

    In Saskatoon we just had 5 or 6 days of Minus 40 degrees temps. In the middle of that one night the wife and I decided to go to Dairy Queen for ice cream. Your Monday morning "Chill Out" shave reminds me of that!

    Rod’s awesome new Glacial Electric Sheep!

    The latest Glacial scent from Stirling and the first one with a mutton tallow base!

    Ease of lathering: 10/10–Like all Stirling soaps this one gives rich, super slick, protective lather so fast and easily!

    Longevity of lather: 10/10–Super stable. Holds up for multi pass shaves so well.

    General skincare: 10/10–Oh my Lord is this one ever soothing. A MONSTROUS menthol sensation just like all the other Glacials as well as great moisturizing.

    Scent: 10/10–I love it. Just like the regular version of Electric Sheep it’s a blend of citronella, lemon, and eucalyptus. Beautiful!

    Price: 10/10–13.60$ USD. Great value!

    Would I buy again: 10/10–How couldn’t I? I love mentholated soaps and I love Stirling!

    Friday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Astra Green day 5
    Stirling Glacial Spearmint SS
    Stirling Glacial Spearmint ASB
    Fine Snake Bite AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    My face might need all day to thaw out from this intense menthol bombardment. The pre shave soap has a good cooling sensation, it’s pretty much unscented, it does such a great job of cleaning the skin, and it softens up the stubble so well. The Glacial Spearmint soap’s beautiful scent fills the bathroom, its lather works up perfectly, the menthol sensation is so potent that it feels almost painful but the skincare is brilliant. The matching balm has the same wonderful scent with awesome moisturizing as well as soothing, and the Snake Bite aftershave is killer cold. Three passes gave me an easy peasy super duper BBS shave!

    Have a great weekend - stay healthy and safe!

    If Glacial Spearmint comes back, I think I’d like that.

    Wednesday morning’s Grand Freeze:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Schick day 3
    Stirling Glacial Electric Sheep SS
    Prep ASB
    Master Splash Creations Frosted Spearmint AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    Definitely the coldest shave I’ve had so far this week - the Glacial Electric Sheep soap is a menthol atom bomb with almost exactly the same beautiful scent as the original version. This Glacial version has perhaps a bit more of a lemony note to the scent but otherwise it’s pretty much the same. I had tremendous lather that was so rich, mega slick, along with a monstrous menthol sensation, and the mutton tallow formula promotes such wonderful skincare. The Prep’s moisturizing, cooling and soothing felt so good, not to mention how frigid the Frosted Spearmint aftershave felt. A good looking beast like me needs a beautiful fragrance so the Bleu de Chanel was the perfect answer. I’m really enjoying this Schick blade - it helped to get me absolutely BBS!

    Be well and safe - have a great day!

    Menthol Monday:

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Schick day 8
    Stirling Glacial Black Cherry SS
    Stirling Glacial Unscented ASB
    B&M Arctique AS Splash
    Bleu de Chanel Deodorant Stick
    Bleu de Chanel EdP

    What a Grand Freeze this was - from start to finish. The mentholated pre shave soap put the wheels in motion, the Glacial Black Cherry soap delivered such a beautiful scent along with tons of rich, slick, frigid lather that gave me perfect blade glide as well as gentle, soothing skincare. The Glacial Unscented balm and the Arctique aftershave prolonged the freeze wonderfully. Not even a professional barber could have shaved me better than this!

    Have a great week - be well and safe!

    You are correct. It is just the coffee and vanilla notes in the scent oxidizing. As the interior is exposed to air, it will do the same thing. We've got quite a few scents that do that, most notably the Haverford.

    Thanks so much for your response!

    It's funny how timely your response is, as I JUST finished a shave with Iced Coffee prior to reading it! The scent is quickly becoming a new favourite of mine, and I'm so glad that I grabbed a tub of it this year.

    Thanks for making a great product, and for taking the time to interact with us all.

    God bless,

    GCC
