I have also used "Taylor's of Old Bond Street Shaving Creame". Which is the best, but pricey.
In 2009 I switched to Van Der Hagen that was available at Walmart, this produced, I thought, the best lather possible. My brother-in-law encouraged me to try "Col. Cronk Bay Rum". Wow an incredible shave. I found "VDH Luxury" soap at Amazon and decided to give it a try. This soap is the best lather I have ever used. Easy to work with and lasts. The price is very reasonable. This is now my everyday shaving soap.
The first thing I noticed is that this new soap is an once larger than the old VDH. The packaging is attractive, and obviously meant to appeal to people accustomed to more expensive soaps. The scent is light and refreshing. I'm not very good at discribing scents, but it has a hint of cucumber in it. If you like TOBS avocado, you'll probably like this. But how does it perform? Well, it lathers easily, though not as well as Tabac, which is my personal gold standard. A little experimentation with the soap/water ratio yeilds good results. The lather is slick and cushioning. It lasts long enough to shave, but don't dawdle or it will dry out on your face. As I have somewhat oily skin, I don't concern myself much with moisturizing qualities. But this soap seems to give decent skin care and shouldn't dry your skin over much.
I closing, this soap is probably the best there is at this price point. It won't replace the more expensive soaps, but I think I will keep it in my rotation anyway. If you are on a budget, this is a great choice that will provide good shaves without breaking the bank.
First off, the scent of this soap is delightful. It has nearly ruined me from using my other soaps (bay rum, almond, Bigelow, etc) and I find that I reach for it more than the others based on scent alone. Nothing really feminine about the aroma but delicate and fresh in a manly sort of way. Similar to a high end cologne but more subdued...light and refreshing.
Second, lathering this soap is quite easy with a badger brush and mug. I have found that it takes very little time to create enough lather for a multiple pass shave with a Tweezerman badger brush or my Van Der Hagen badger brush. Either one takes the soap well and whips up a great lather.
Third, once lathered, one notices the slickness of the shave right off the bat. I use a pre-shave oil and can sometimes skip that step with VDH luxury. It's that slick. Very nice for that BBS closeness that most wet shavers chase.
Fourth, the price. Three pucks for about ten bucks? Insanely good deal. I purchased mine in a Target locally and their price point was just shy of four dollars a puck. Even at that price it is a stellar deal for a soap of this quality.
I've tried several soaps and keep coming back to VDH luxury. It's the kind of product that if production of it halted (shudder the thought), I'd go on a quest to find as many as I could to build up a stock for future shaves.
It's that good.
The VDH Luxury is a definite step up, and it provides excellent lather, great cushioning and slickness.
FOr the price, it can't be beat!
