    Classic scent, great lather

    Posted by John Hart on 3rd Jun 2019

    I absolutely love the scent of this soap. The lemongrass notes are particularly wonderful in the morning. It may sound silly, but when I lather up with this, I do feel a connection to shaving lore and years long gone. I got my first tub of this soap back in February while visiting the shop, and enjoyed it so much that I had to get two more. I don’t plan on being without it from here on out.

    So much fun to use.

    I love that the scent is based on a classic soap. It really makes it fun to use with some of my vintage razors. The performance is awesome as I have come to expect with PAA. I didn't notice at first that it has a matching aftershave. I'll have to pick that up with my next order.

    Great scent, great soap, great shave!

    Posted by Casey Baldwin on 22nd Aug 2018

    Like all of the PAA soaps this one comes in a wavy creamy looking texture and it lathers like a dream, finally, it smells incredible. This is a great daily shave soap, I regret not buying the matching aftershave. I'll have to remedy that soon. This is an exclusive soap/aftershave to Razor Emporium too!

    Unique Barbershop Scent

    Posted by Timothy on 3rd Jun 2018

    I am willing to bet you have never sniffed a barbershop scent like this one. To my nose it is bright and crisp. I can't identify the citrus that is being used, citronella maybe? Regardless, this is one of the few soaps that I will always have on hand. It's a historical recreation that can only be found at Razor Emporium and would make an excellent daily driver. Excellent glide, cushion and post shave feel.

    Excellent stuff!

    Posted by KD7KIP on 24th Apr 2018

    I've been using cream/soap and brush since 1992, and adopted Gillette DEs in 2006. In that time, I started with Crabtree & Evelyn, went to everything GFT and TOBS, then Proraso, Captain's Choice, Cremo, etc. All have been excellent (in varying degrees), but I'm always looking for something new. As a Gillette aficionado, I was intrigued by the old time Gillette scent this soap promised, so I ordered some.

    Worth every penny! More of a croap consistency, it produces abundant lather with plenty of lubricity and cushion. Easily one of the best lathers I've seen, on par with a fine Trumper's cream. The scent is mild and masculine. It certainly passed the sniff test with my wife, and I find myself opening the jan to catch a wiff a few times a day. I will definately be using this soap for a long time!

    Awesome shave soap

    Posted by Taylor on 23rd Nov 2017

    The scent is amazing. Manly, subtle, and refreshing. I’d be withholding truth if i didn’t say that i open it regularly just to catch a whiff. The lather builds so easily, especially with a boar brush, i use boar and badger however and both work wonderfully. I will definitely be a repeat customer for this soap! And the matching aftershave

    Very nice lather for a soap

    Posted by Jordan Blanchard on 16th Oct 2017

    Historically I've leaned towards using creams/soft croaps as they lather up nicer for me and don't dry out quite as easily after application. I decided to give this one a whirl after all the positive reviews. VERY glad I tried this one. I was so surprised and impressed at how quickly the lather built up out of the jar, it literally exploded after 7-8 swirls of my silvertip brush. Much better than many other harder soaps I've tried. Also, unlike other soaps, this one stayed nice and wet for the duration of each pass. Seems like PAA landed on a nice formula. As for the scent, very nice and sweet, not overbearing. Hope this one sticks around - will be purchasing again.

    Very Smooth

    Posted by Laman Snyder on 25th Jul 2017

    Have used a mug & brush for decades. Tried countless soaps. Was exclusive to Taylor of Old Bond Street cream for last few years and thought I'd try something different. What a pleasant surprise. This product is like a combination of soap and cream. A lot of moisture content for quick, thick lather. Very smooth blade slide, and wonderful aroma.
