When I say subtle scent, I mean it. I have a difficult time determining if I like the scent, or if it's even there sometimes. This is not a fault of the product. For some people, this may be preferable. As a contrast to this, I have soaps that I love so much that I intentionally do not use alum, witch hazel, or aftershave, because I want to keep the scent of the soap.

The lather is very good, but I need more time to determine how much water to use. I may be lathering too dry, because it starts to dry up as I'm finishing each pass. So far, this has not been a problem, and has not affected my shave. But if you are too slow, you may need more water than I use. If drying early is a problem, it is minor. And I think that I can solve it with more water, or with distilled water (my water is moderately hard). The lubrication is very good, on par with the best I have used.

Since this costs so little, I recommend any wet shaver to try it. Half the fun of wet shaving is exploring all the great products we have these days.

Edit: I tried this soap with more water, and it lathers perfectly. Part of my problem was trying this soap with a new and unfamiliar brush. Also, the scent is not as subtle as I first thought, but still rather mild in my opinion.

Great soap! Easy to lather, nice thick cushion and good amount of slick :)
Smells like your typical Turkish shaving stick (Arko,GZD,). So keep in mind if those scents bother you. It's tallow based but it didn't leave that slight dry feeling I get from most tallow soaps. This soap is a great performer! Don't let the price or the lesser known company name fool you.
The shave felt better than Arko, Williams, or GZD. (IMHO). It's up there with any of the more expensive soaps. Go Turkey!!

This is one off the best lathering Shaving Soap Cakes I've used. It has no discernible fragrance so it won't change or compete with any aftershave product you might use. I have paid twice as much to get this quality of shaving soap. My razor glides easily over my face resulting in a close shave, with no razor burns' or nick's. I would highly recommend this product.

This THE perfect soap for the ultimate electric wet shave. I just upgraded to the Panasonic ES-LA63 http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-ES-LA63-S-Electric-Multi-Flex-Pivoting/dp/B002N5MHLU from a rotary Norelco electric shaver.

The Panasonic quad-linear plus the Shaving Factory soap is total dynamite - shaves better than a Mach 3 blade plus brushed lather. Not one razor bump (I always got these a blade, which is why I switched to electric).

I find this soap works best without a brush. Wet face thoroughly with hot water, wash face with soap. Don't rinse and instead massage face and work up a light lather with your hands.

Shave, occasional wetting hands and apply to face as lather can dry up, and lose some slipperiness. Leaves my face as smooth as a baby's cheek and smells fantastic.

This soap lathers better than the shaving soaps I have tried before. It also does not leave the film on my face that others do if I do not rinse well enough. I was surprised by the strong scent, but it was invigorating and did not cling to me after the shave.

This is a good shaving soap, but I don't understand the other reviews. This soap has an overwhelming fragrance, and it's not particularly pleasant. To me, it smells like that cheap soap your Grandmother used to give you in the grooming kits when you were a kid. I know it's a bit difficult to find shaving soap, most stores don't carry anything for the old fashioned razors anymore. I had to make a special trip to find it. I decided to finally to toss this stuff and use Ivory.

The people who said it has a "subtle scent," or an almost indistinguishable fragrance must be stopped up.

I won't buy it again.

The soap worked great, but had a strong smell that seemed flowery or lavender to me. I don't know, I gave it to my wife and she said it just smelled like soap. I hate to give out a poor review for a product that works, but the smell just isn't for me.

There must be major variation in the quantity of odor emitted by this product. My trial ended after the first shave as the pungent scent of this product overtook the entire bathroom and adjoining bedroom. It lathered well, and shave performance was good. The smell was comically intense, however.
