I was thinking about one of my absolute favorite TSE videos where he gives real talk about expensive shave soap and gear. In the spirit of that video I lathered up some Arko that I received as a PIF, it was infused with Rose scent.

The Plisson made short work of the ARKO. After I was satisfied with the consistence and look, I added more water.

Wow. What a great shave.

I received some Arko by PIF. Then I gave my Arko to a friend.

I reckon I made a mistake, but I did share something.

You're not alone in liking the scent. Me too!! It's the best bang for the buck in shave soap in the World IMO!! I do however recommend the "new & improved" Lea shave stick if you like Arko.
The good people of this world are very far from being satisfied with each other and my arms are the best peacemakers.

I was inferring to the quality of lather & not the scent. Perhaps I should have clarified that.

Arko's ok, the scent reminds me of citronella. I grated my stick up and left it out on the counter to air out and it's scent has mellowed. It does dry my face out a bit so I use a balm after I use it.
