    Pretty good soap

    I have been using this soap almost daily for two weeks. This is a hard thirsty soap. I have found that a boar brush works best for loading. It can easily be thick on your face if you don’t have enough water but it is smooth when it comes to shaving. The sent is nice as well. Not too strong but you know it’s there.

    Sweet Gale (Essence of Scotland)

    Back with another review. Was very curious about Sweet Gale. Grading on a 1-10 scale when numerical. Lather: 8.5-8.75 It lathered readily and well for a soap after loading the Silvertip badger brush following a hot soak. Aroma: 8.25. Personal preference always factors in. The vetiver, spices are in full effect. Very pleasant, although I wouldn’t quite call it manly with its sweet overtones. I felt the sweetness almost fought the spices, but not enough to push this into a poor rating. Nobody’s going to pick a fight with you because of it. Enjoyable. Didn’t pick up on the scent notes as well as the day progressed, as with Scottish Heather or other top performers in this criterion, albeit a subtle indicator. Shave: A. You’re going to get a quality shave with very good aesthetics. That’s my verdict.

    Essence of Scotland/Sweet Gale

    A very unique scent, not overpowering and I really can’t detect which ingredient is forward smelling. Soap lathers easily but is not especially thick, but its slick enough to give a nice glide for the razor. I don’t have any other soaps that compare scent wise to this, and I have quite an inventory. This scent will work well all year round.

    Very subtle scent

    I was looking for a scene that was more reserved than some of the real nostril-yankers so readily available elsewhere - and I have to admit this scent is so subtle you can easily miss it. Which is good; it's there if you turn your head and get a whiff or if someone gives you a hug it's noticeable, but it's not the type of scent that's going to be offensive. The smell is quite pleasing on it's own merits. I'm sensitive to strong smells and this definitely doesn't have a strong smell, so points for that. Also, it lathers pretty easily for a melt and pour soap. Another reviewer noted it's in the same sector as Bay Rum - I'd agree with that. This might be an even lighter smell, actually. The scent it does have is not as woodsy as I would have thought. I've seen it advertised as a shaving soap with "scotch" scent - but in reality I wouldn't describe it that way at all. Also, if cedar wood makes you sneeze, don't worry: there is no strong really noticeable cedar scent here either. As I say, it's a pleasant smell but not as masculine or woodsy, or fresh as I would have thought. There is another "cedar & scotch" shaving soap available online, and I think I'll try that next to compare them. Overall, as a shaving soap, it's sort of pleasant all the way around. It's not exceptional in lather or scent, but it's hardly bad on either of those points either.
