I'd actually had a stick of Tabac I'd purchased in Munich during my travels last year as I was having trouble lathering a cream I packed (water in parts of Europe can be exceptiona...view morelly hard) .
I found Tabac had the capacity to create a brilliant, cushioning, slick lather very quickly in any water conditions . I was enamored with this product immediately.
Some time after my return, I noticed it sold on "The Stray Whisker" and immediately ordered a bowl. I have been using the puck in my regular rotation and have been delighted with its ease of use and performance. It leaves my skin cool and comfortable (something that some soaps fail to achieve). It appears to be triple milled so is quite a hard soap that will last quite a long time.
This is a product that has a fragrance that is loved by some and met with indifference by others. I quite enjoy it . I actually associate the scent with a clean and comfortable shave. If you are looking for a high performance shaving soap - this is it!
You won't regret having this in your shaving den. view less
