Just the other day I opened my mailbox to find a Stirling 26 mm brush and a container of their Barbershop shave soap.

Oli,

Straight off the puck I get a natural lime (as if smelling a lime that hasn't been cut) with some rosemary. I don't get the cedarwood right off the bat like I do with B&M's Lime, Lavender, Cedarwood. I will update this post after I shave to see how the scent evolves when lathered.

Update: Upon lathering, I got a sweet and tart lime scent and you could smell the menthol mixed with the rosemary in the background. I will definatly have to re use this in a few days as my sense of smell has been a little off these past few days due to allergies. I may be missing the cedarwood scent due to this as I can't smell any cedarwood in the soap or its a very little and what im smelling is the cedarwood and rosemary mixed together.

Overall I like it and it will be earning a spot in my rotation.

Thanks Jerry, it's much appreciated Smile

Sounds very nice, how strong is the menthol?

It's nice. The only other soaps inhave with menthol are B&M LPC, Arctique and MLS Paradise Frost.

I would say this one is colder than LPC, Adagio and Paradise Frost but it's not up to the level of Arctique or Cryogen where it can become uncomfortable to use. So to quantify this on a scale of 1-10 ID say LPC is at a 3-4, Limenthol is about a 6 and Arctique is at a 10 but YMMV.
