Scent Profile Sandalwood
Directions To get the best out of Whispers from the Woods Shave Soap it should be used with a shaving brush. Soak your brush in water, remove excess water and then load your brush from the tub until you have what resembles a paste on the tips of your brush hairs.
You can then either lather on your face or in bowl. As you do, add small amounts of water at a time until you have a thick lather. It will look like meringue with peaks and have the consistency of yoghurt.
Really enjoy using this soap. Con introduced me to this when I visited and have never looked back. It is a wonderful sandalwood scent - not too overpowering but just right. A wonderfully thick and slick lather. Have used this on a few shaves and never disappoints.
I love this soap! If you haven't tried these soaps then give em a go! Definitely surprised me! The scent on this particular soap is not overpowering at all in fact I would probably say this lends itself more to a cream sort of a scent if that makes sense but the sandalwood scent is present. I found it easy to build a rich, creamy, yogurt like consistency. It handles water quite well and I would say that it work to your benefit to be reasonably generous with the introduction of water. The lather is quit dense and consistent, it does not dissipate or suffer any such issues. The slickness is pretty reasonable and post shave feeling is fine. I managed to get one of best shaves using this soap which has lead me to consider purchasing another in a different scent upon my next order from TSW. One of the reasons I love this soap aside from performance is that I can use this soap at night without irritating anyone at all. The sandalwood scent of this one reminds me of the Sandalwood soap from Faena that I picked up from here a few years ago. This is the first time I have tried this brand as such I cannot comment on any of the previous iterations but I can assure you this one is worthwhile addition to your shave stash.
