Really great scent and glide with this set. Two thumbs up!! Super fast shipping too!!
I am an avid wetshaver and have used hundreds of different soaps and dozens of brands. Believe me when I say that this is one of the best I've encountered. Give this artisan a try, you won't be disappointed!
I found this very "peppermint-y" scented shave soap to be bold and subtle simultaneously. My nose found that Peppermint, Apple and Eucalyptus to be engaged in constant tug of war as to which fragrance was dominant at any moment, while Lavender was present but understated, again only an opinion submitted by my nose. I found this curious mixture a wonderful background to shaving , as it filled the room with an, at times, a strong Apple-like essence that would suddenly shift to Eucalyptus then back to Peppermint. Speaking specifically about Delirium Dive as a shaving soap, it works very well. The soap lathers into a creamy cushion that provides more than abundant slipperiness and cushion for the sharpest blades or most aggressive of razor. Ultimately, the soap left my skin feeling soft and smooth, along with a pleasant residual fragrance from the soap. In my opinion, this is an Excellent Shave Soap by any measure!
