I'm a fan. Some find it difficult to lather, but that's not a problem I've experienced. It has a lovely clean, understated fragrance, and great post-shave feel. The lather has a smaller spectrum of usability than other soaps, and that's its only drawback in my view. I think it performs better when on the thicker side, and when it dissipates it loses some of its slickness. So I occasionally find myself lathering up again before a third pass. All that said, I think it's a great soap and I wouldn't be without it in my rotation.
