This soap has not received much attention. Has anyone used it and what did you think of it?

Jani, No, unfortunately I can be of no help. For over a year I could easily have purchased it locally but I never did. The scent didn't really appeal to me and I had more than enough hard shave soaps already. As you probably remember, back when they offered a Vetiver soft cream, the quality was very high ( it was obviously a Creghton made product ) but I've no idea who makes the hard soap and if it's quality level is in the same league.
Regards,
Gordon

Perfectly acceptable, but not outstanding. I've used it twice among all the others, and don't remember much more. When it comes round again I'll pay more attention!

Splended! What more could one ask for?

Well, maybe a back rub would be nice.

This soap came around again this week. I like the scent a lot, and it performs like any modern palm oil triple-milled English soap. So it's as good as Trumper or Taylor performance-wise; I can recommend trying it to anyone looking for something new.
