I guess it would depend on if it's a softer or harder soap and if it was triple milled. I know triple milled soaps can last quite a while!

I've used Barrister and Mann, seemed to be endless at times. I've also used Dapper Dragon which lasted about a month and a half. Soap hardness seems to be the indicator of longevity, although definitely not a hard and fast rule.

On some containers there might be a small symbol of a jar with the lid half off of it and it will have a number and an M in it, indicating in months how long it should last.  My Razorock Classic for example says 12M, so it should last me a year.  Now, and this is only an assumption on my part, but I don't think your soap would stop lathering after this time, just the scent profile won't be as strong, but I could be wrong on that Tongue

soaps can last a very long time and keep scent also. usually though scent is what fades away with age on soaps, but i have found soaps 40 years old that performed and smelled amazing
