While orange is the dominant scent here, a judicious blend of cedar wood and black pepper is easily discerned and provides additional complexity.

This soap is the real deal. Tallow is the main ingredient, regarded by many shaving enthusiasts (myself included) as yielding the creamiest, slickest, and most protective lather possible. In addition, this soap is rich in vegetable glycerin, kokum butter, shea butter, and avocado oil. It also contains kaolin clay, which creates a slick buffer between your skin and the blade.

The icing on the cake is lanolin, a waxy substance derived from the wool of sheep and a fantastic conditioner and humectant. This soap will provide an effortless and downright decadent shave that will leave your skin feeling soft, supple, and smooth. Each container contains about 5 ounces of soap.

Ingredients: Distilled water; saponified tallow (beef) and stearic acid; vegetable glycerin; saponified kokum butter, avocado oil, and shea butter; lanolin, fragrance and/or essential oil(s); saponified coconut oil; kaolin clay, vitamin E.

Oldie but goodie

One of the first artisans and still one of the best. All these new fancy bases and Mike's base is still the slickest I've ever used.

I didn't like the scent or the quality of the lather. The scent is artificial, like an orange creamsicle and the lather is too thin to do anything with. I guess some people must enjoy a thin lather. Unfortunately, they didn't sell a sample, so I bought a full size container. And this soap had excellent reviews.

This is the Mount Everest of Mike's scents - a bit complex (but not too much) and it all comes together great. Most of Mike's scents are simpler and usually better for it - but this is an exception. Research Mike's on the various shaving forums and OCBP will always merit a favorable review. I like almost all of Mike's scents (and Barbershop is even starting to grow on me but this scent is special. Even my wife said it smelled nice when I emerged from the bathroom after a shower and shave! The scent is somewhat reminiscent of Sterling's Pharaoh's Dreamsicle but Mike's provides a superior shave and post-shave.

Old Faithful! New one's come and go but this one keeps ticking along, showing the competition what shaving soap should be. It's one of the best all around performers and the scent is one of my favourite. You need this is in your rotation, it's rude not to!
