Amazing Soap.

As per subject, I have received this LE soap yesterday and had my 1st shave today. This product is excellent. First of all, the design of the container is amazing (imo). The soap is semi-hard (i.e. you can make a hole in it if you press hard, but it is not a cream) and has a nice scent. I would describe it as floral woody and (very slightly) citrusy scent. It is very elegant (IMHO), and not overpowering (if you like a scent explosion when you take the lid off, this is not the soap for you). I have lathered with my 2 band badger (I normally use boar brushes, but my brushes can literally lather with dish soap so that would make it irrelevant) and got a nice thick and creamy lather. Very good cushioning and, more importantly, a very good slickness. Interestingly, the scent builds up while lathering the soap and it is moderately persistent throughout the day but never overpowering. I will definitely try more P&B products.
Side note: excellent service from Agent Shave.
