Great Lather, Great Smell, and wife likes it!Jan 05, 2013
By Torris The Bull
I gave this a 5 star rating because of the lather and quality of the scent. I opened the package and was very pleased with the mild and aromatic scent. Not too strong but very relaxing. Since this was a refill I placed in a concave mahogany bowl I got from Jamaica just recent and it was a great fit. I placed the bowl on top of our radiator cover in the bathroom and it took my wife by surprise of the aroma. She like it! Well I had to step it up and created a superlather with Truefitt and Hill's West Indian Limes soap cream. Wonderful combo! I would buy this product again.

An excellent shave!Sep 16, 2009
By Amazon Customer
This is the real deal. A TRUE shaving soap that delivers a close, smooth and moisturizing shave. The scent is pretty dry / smokey, so be sure that is your leaning. I understand the Arlington fragrance is a bit friendlier.
Edit: Yes, I have now tried Arlington and prefer the citrus-woods fragrance (which gets better with time).

Nice scent and rich lather!Jun 26, 2011
I like the quality and value that D.R. Harris shaving products are noted for. This shaving soap is solid cake, nice lavender scent, and lathers nicely with a quality brush. I have also used a variety of other brand shave soaps, and I find the D.R. Harris refills are slightly better for my uses.

Awesome soap. Lathers wellsDec 09, 2014
Awesome soap. Lathers wells, and smells great. It takes a bit of patience to lather as it is a hard soap but this is as good as it gets for me so far.
Compared to xxx the scent is a bit "older" meaning less exciting but more distinctive. xxx is a bit stronger and fruitier. (xxx is still another awesome shave)
The scent is manly yet delicate and subtle. It does not linger but it will make your shave feel really good during and after shaving. I am already looking for a cologne with same scent.

An Excellent SoapJun 01, 2012
I absolutely love Marlborough's subtly warm and leathery scent that doesn't smell soapy like many other shaving soaps. What sets this soap truly apart however is the rich and lasting lather it produces. Many other soaps produce weak lathers, even after several minutes of lathering with a brush or will rapidly dissipate after application. Not so with this soap. It whips up nice and quick and the lather will last for the duration of your shave. After trying many other high quality soaps and creams, Marlborough is my favorite by far.
