On a lark, today I used (VdH) Van der Hagen Luxury shaving soap. It's slick and quite pleasant glycerine soap. Not bad. Probably similar to Arko, with a different and equally acceptable (but totally different) scent.

This evening I made a test-lather with the Taylor Sandalwood soap. Looking forward to using this one for the next several days. I want to see how slick and protective it is.

Taylor Lavender soap...the older potassium stearate version. Great scent, great lather, great performance. What more can I ask?
Best regards,
