What an absolute pleasure to trial run another scent from Wickham's forthcoming 1912 line of soaps: today, Citrus Musk.

I say "Citrus Musk", Wickham's say "Exotic Citrus", but whatever it will be called it is an evocation of those wonderful manly citrus and musk scents from a previous era. Less Pinaud, more Jade East, more Denim.

Flip the coin from Club Cola, what with its sweetness and near feminine vanilla; flip the coin, this is dark, mysterious, adventurous and manly, the more bitter citrus writhing and twisting as you lather up.

... and what a lather. It's thick, smooth and creamy, it feeds, it protects.

I couldn't get enough and so the vintage Jade East came out for an aftershave splash and a good pat of Pinaud Eau de Quinine for the hair.

Great! Really great!
