- Stunning product, the other 5 star reviews are all correct!
- The best soap ever.
- Highly recommend
- Absolutely one of the best scented soaps....
This is the first time I have used a Penhaligon's soap, and I had no idea what to expect.
First off, at this price, you would be crazy to pass this opportunity by! This is by far the cheapest way to try out Blenheim Bouquet, you will either love the scent or hate it. At the time if writing this its sold out, and that doesn't come as a surprise given the price (hell.. I bought 2 of them myself!)
The shave soap comes in a nicely packed sealed box (as shown in the picture), however, you can smell the soap through the packaging.
The scent is exactly that of the Blenheim Bouquet Shaving cream and aftershave balm which is top notch. Kind of hard to describe but 2 scents which jump out are black pepper and lime.
Now to performance. Like all soaps I like to re-hydrate the soap by adding a few drops of water to the top and allowing it to absorb. After that, I went to town using my badger brush.
It effortlessly created enough lather for me to transfer to my bowl, where I continued to lather. Immediately you are greeted with that nice Blenheim Bouquet scent and a thick, rich, creamy lather. It took me about 30 - 50 seconds to whip up a nice lather in the bowl which lasted for the duration of my 3 pass shave and still had plenty for touch ups!
Overall, this is one of my best soaps, based on both scent and performance. Are there better performing soaps out there? Yes... but are they Blenheim Bouquet? No.
This is a uniquely scented soap, which when prepared properly will reward you with a nice lather and a fragrance like no other.
I defiantly recommend this to anyone who hasn't tried Blenheim Bouquet as this is probably the cheapest way to try it out. Once you fall in love with the scent, I would highly recommend grabbing the Blenheim Bouquet aftershave balm, as its a nice finishing touch to your shave!
