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

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.

Easy to lather up, smooth shave, and smells great.

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.

The instructions call for only about 10 swirls of the the brush and it sure gives a great lather. 1/5th of my Art of Shaving soap. Better lather also.

I really enjoyed this soap. Excellent performance, fantastic scent with good lasting power, easy to lather and a great post shave feel. I'm a big fan of barbershop scents and this one is one of the best.

This was my first purchase from Razor Emporium and I am very pleased with it, Thanks to the amazing product and youtube videos i have been able to get a much more comfortable shave thanks to this product and the smell is delightful. It lathers up quick and stays, I would totally recommend this product

This soap allows for a close shave without irritation.
The merit is the ability to slide the blade very easily.
I had already purchased in the past but I wanted to take it back to its excellent quality

I received this soap over a week ago and have used it several times since then. The first time it just wouldn't lather up at all and it looked like soup and that was not with much water. So I dumped out the liquid and started over again . This time it got a little thicker and I just kept whipping it up and finally got a decent lather that I could shave with. It smelled great and I was excited to use it . It did ok but my face was dried out after . I don't know if I got a bad batch or what because I have read nothing but positive reviews about this soap. I will buy again and try out another batch to see if it work's for me. I have been shaving for over 50 years and have used a lot of soap in that time . Every once in a while some of the soaps don't get mixed right and give problem's . That I understand so I'll keep trying. Razor Emporium is a very good web site and they do quality work on their products. I really like doing business with them . Thank's a lot.

When I received my King Emporium Shave Soap I couldn't wait to use it the next morning. When I opened the package, I was surprised to see the container was larger than I thought. When I unscrewed the cap I was immediately greeted with a delightful masculine barber shop aroma.
The next morning, I filled my shaving mug with hot water and let the shaving brush soak while I showered. Afterwards, I squeezed the water from my brush and used circular motions and the shave soap immediately loaded into the brush. I then dipped the brush into my shave mug and with very little effort whipped up a thick and generous amount of luxurious cream.
I'm a 3-pass shaver (down, across and up) so I was surprised that I had more than enough shaving soap to complete the job. I was equally impressed with the protection the cream provided to my skin. I used my 1958 Gillette TV Speical with a SuperMax Platinum blade and the razor slide across my face without any hesitation, tugging and best of all no irritation. After I washed my face with cold water, I was surprised that my face was left with such a great aroma that I decided to forego my normal aftershave.
You can certainly purchase more expensive shaving creams ...but why? King Emporium Shaving Soap stands alone in terms of quality and value. This is my new to-go shaving product! Thank you, Matt!
