Thank you for answers :)
Now I am torn between Mudder Focker and Plague Doctor :) Since one is tallow based, other is vegan I don`t know are there difference in performance. Also, are they same as consistency and scent. And maybe tallow one lasts longer?
I like not so strong scents, because they irritate my skin. Strangely Denim Original shave cream has strong scent, but I tolerate it well. Proraso white and MWF on other hand gives me irritation and redness.

So, which one you suggest better? :rolleyes:

Plague Doctor is very subtle. It's the only RazoRock soap and fragrance I have. Based, apparently, on the flora and herbs that were used in the conical plague masks of Venetians during the 16th century.

I've tried quite a few RR soaps and croaps, none of which I've found particularly good and if you don't like strong scents then give em' a miss. Sorry to be negative rr fans but as for the Mudder focker, I had to bin it. Nasty smell and consistency. Never tried the Plague Doctor but something tells me that's gone hum pretty badly too.
Big fan of Fine Accoutrements soap and OSP for performance more than scent although Fine Italian Citrus is my favourite scent.

Hello,

I have never used Razorock soaps before, but I am looking to order some.
2 get my attention :

Razorock Plague Doctor

And the other is Razorock for Chicago :

I am curious why on first one is written Shaving cream soap, the other is only Shaving soap?
Are there any difference?

Thank you !
There isn't really a difference. They are more like a very firm croap a bit harder than the Proraso tubs. I have the Plague Doctor, Sapone da Barbara and Aqua soaps and splashes and I love the scents (I just wish they would bring them out as an EDP). I have found (at least in my experience) that RazoRock's soaps require work and time in getting a good lather. If you have medium to heavy water I would suggest adding a small amount of glycerin as it really makes it lather up great and adds to the glide of the razor. I have never used Chicago so can't comment on that one though it sounds interesting. RazoRock has some good scents in their soaps and are quite popular but I found the soaps' scent lacking beyond the bathroom after a shave. If you are looking for a strong scented soap then I suggest their Tuscan Oud. IT IS STRONG. I have suggested to Italian Barber about bringing out sample packs but they aren't interested which is a shame. It's not much to go on but I hope this helps.
