The soap is listed as Lime and Patchouli and I would say it has a good scent strength with a nice strong fresh lime scent which is nicely complemented by the patchouli scent in the background. This gives the scent a nice depth. I find the scent lasts throughout the shave and is a great scent. It’s one of those where I keep going back to the tub to get another smell of the scent.
I’ve used a variety of brushes with this soap all producing great results. The last shave with this I used the L’Occitane Plisson Synthetic brush which produces some great lather with this soap. It loads up very easily and my preferred method of face lathering works a treat. The lather quickly builds into a nice creamy lather with very little effort, even with my hard water. The glide and slickness of this soap is up there with the best of them. I also find the cushion and protection this soap offers to be top notch.
Another strong point of this soap is the post shave feel. It contains shea butter which I feel leaves the skin well hydrated and in top condition. The scent lingers around for a little while and I prefer to finish off with a nice citrus scented aftershave when using this soap.
The Soap Commander soap is a vegan recipe containing shea butter and castor oil and come in a nice big tub with waterproof labels. I can see this lasting a long time as you get 6oz of soap in each tub. I will definitely be buying this again. I’ve spoken to Darren the maker of this soap a few times and he is a really nice helpful guy.
I can’t wait to try some of the other scents in this range. It’s available from the Soap Commander website, but if you are UK based Shaving Station stocks this as well and is where I bought mine from.
If you’re thinking of trying Soap Commander and like the scent of limes then this is the one for you. This is a soap I definitely recommend trying.
