For anyone that is interested James has just released 5 new scents and until the 14th Feb I believe he has them on pre order at the standard price. Following this date the price is set to go based additional costs.

Thanks for the heads up!  Also thanks for yet another excellent review, WindsorCitrus!  

I'm not sure if I should wait for a vendor over here in the U.S. to carry this soap or bite the bullet and order a couple to take the sting out of the shipping charges.  I know you've had to pay your share in shipping charges to try the artisans from over here.  Although, if I order before the 14th, I could get them at the lower price(Says the shaving soap nut trying to justify another purchase  Winking .)

Excellent review and sounds like an excellent soap. I will by trying this one in the near future. Tallow soaps are my favorite, and I'm not biased either, it just turns out that every soap in my regular rotation is tallow. I have veggie soaps too but they aren't in my regular rotation presently. It's about time the UK has a artisan offering with tallow. Perhaps there are others I'm not thinking of but it seems most soaps there are vegan/veggie.

Thats exactly the reason I dont have many european or french soaps, they all seem to be non-tallow soaps, which really dry my skin out. OSP is on my soap brands to try during 2016, as the ingredients list looks superb and the reviews have been all very positive.

Today I used up the last of my OSP shave soap samples that I bought a year ago. I traded a few to a friend as well who could not live without them. I had their Sandalwood, Neroli, Orange Patchouli and finally Spice Road. All smelled wonderful, but I may add that to my nose their Sandalwood was incredible, but the Orange Patchouli hooked me like it was a drug. A narcotizing scent combo for sure. The Neroli was beautiful as well, but for those who like sweet smells. The Spice Road is not a take on Old Spice, but rather a mysterious blend of spices that is exhilarating and intoxicating. I had no problems getting these to lather and they are IMO very slick with superb aftershave face feel qualities.

As a final note, there is just something about the soap quality that just screams top notch ingredients. You can just sense it the whole time that you use it. Wholeheartedly recommended.


You can order these with cheap & fair shipping form Connaught Shaving in the UK when in stock and we Yanks don't have to pay the VAT as a kicker. Big Grin Smile

I really enjoy James' soaps. Not always the best scents in the business but the ingredients are great and the lather is always amazing. Been using the Grapefruit and Menthol quite a bit during the warmer weather here in England and it's fantastic.
