Lovely soap, almost without scent and lathers up so easily!

The brush gains some unwarranted negativity, in my opinion, being old generation synthetic and often considered like lathering with a toothbrush, but in all fairness it is perfect for bowl lathering as evident by the really quite excellent lather; on the face, not a million miles from a fresh boar.

I genuinely like the brush, but the shell is not so tough and deforms easily. I am not likely to use this for travelling and so I think I'll pop the knot out, which appears to be set in a plastic cup, and set it into a handle of its own; something long like the travel casing as it really is a super bowl latherer.

It's been a while since I've used this French razor - I've seen this razor under the Le Grelot name and more recently under the L'Essor name. It gives a super shave, strong, yet gentle.

In all, much enjoyed!
