PAA has been on my wishlist for a while, and I finally got around to trying one of their soaps. Loaded up brush using the "dry method" which I tend to use for most of my soft soaps such as this one. Lathered up really easily on the face and provided great protection with ample slickness. The post-shave feel was superb, almost removing the need to re-hydrate skin with a moisturising product. The scent wasn't quite as I was expecting. It's very sweet with the cherry prominent. Was hoping for a dark, smoky tobacco element, but this part of the fragrance was more of a tobacco flower, à la the classic Tabac scent. Nevertheless, the performance of the soap easily warrants a 5* review and I look forward to expanding my PAA soap collection in the future.
