This is a new soap for me to try as I have never used the scent before.Let me say this is now my all time favourite mentholated soap from Stirling, and top 3 out of all time mentholated soaps and creams I have tried. Why ? Simple. The menthol hit is quite strong. It is not eye watering like some menthol soaps and creams, and is consistent from shave to shave. The menthol feeling starts as I am half way through lathering the first pass, and is quite strong from half way through the first pass until about 15-20mins post shave. To me this is perfect way menthol should feel in a shave. Strong, without being overbearing, consistent from shave to shave, and consistent through the shave from the 1st lather ,to passes 1-3, and post shave.The scent strength is strong but not overbearing. It consistent from start to the end of the shave. This I would classify as a 8/10 for scent strength. Does it smell like Pineapple. It sure does. The smell is of sweet tropical pineapple. The shave, as per standard Stirling tallow based formula is excellent. Easy to lather, I have bowl and face lathered on four separate shaves. 1st two shaves was DE razor face lather, and 3rd and 4th was a straight razor with bowl lathers. The bowl lather produced super volumes of glossy yoghurt like clouds. 20-30 sec loading from a damp synthetic brush was able to produce enough lather for more than a three pass and touch up shave.Very slick and very cushiony. I found the bowl lather of this soap exceptional on the cushion factor. Very easy soap to lather. 10/10.Post Shave feels great as always with Stirling soaps. Due to the menthol and the perfect consistency in the way it performed throughout the shave, this one gets a 9.5/10. I would have given it a 10 but, some people don’t like menthol, and there are soaps I have that I would give a 9.5 on post shave that don’t have menthol. My pairing of aftershave scent to match this soap was Creed Aventus. You could use almost any citrus noted aftershave/cologne to blend in with the sweetness of the scent. I used Creed Aventus only because I know it has a good pineapple top note in the scent. Yes is matched well and really brought out the pineapple scent of the soap.I normally test out new soaps for myself by first face lathering and using a DE razor. If I am happy with that shave, my next shave will be with a straight razor. I never use pre shave preparations. If the soap I am using cannot produce a good shave on it’s own merits, then it’s not up to the task. Overall this a great soap, and one I had total confidence in using a straight razor. For those into fruit based scents, this one is strong in a good way. This soap is why, and continues the reason Stirling soaps stay in my top 3 all time soaps and creams. If you’re into mentholated soaps and creams , then yes this is a good one.
Amazing fresh pineapple scent. Definitely a summer favourite
