First off it smells amazing. I have several Crabtree & Evelyn sandalwood scented things and I feel so damned manly it hurts. Secondly, it'll last a long time. A very long time, I think, given how my uses so far appear to have made little to no difference to the surface of the soap. Third, you get a wooden bowl! Now I have no idea what the quality of the bowl is like, but it feels so upper class to be marauding around my flat with a wooden bowl of shaving soap.
A good product, worth the money and highly recommended.
I may be spoilt by the Italian shaving soap I had before this but I don't think so, the lather is just `thin' and that's it.
UPDATE : November 2013, I've improved the original score from 3 to 4 that I gave this soap as I have found that if one puts just a little water on the brush and holds the soap upside down (over a sink!) and rubs quite hard then the lather does thicken up quite nicely as this gives the thin stuff the chance to fall in to said sink.
Many men have used this product and have had good experiences with it. I, on the other hand have slightly sensitive skin under the neck and the tendency to develop irritation. This soap just disn't offer the same protection as shaving creams do.
The scent is very subtle and the soap itself lasts forever!!
Only negative I suppose is that the sandalwood scent is not particularly strong in fact i'ts almost non existant.
Recently I decided to treat myself to a decent badger brush (made by KENT) and invest in a more 'upmarket' soap, which is why I chose 'CRABTREE'
I am very pleasantly surprised how much better a lather I obtain, just by slightly wetting the brush and applying, then soaking the brush again and build up a nice thick lather which gives a far better cut. Although the Crabtree soap cost more than my previous brand you do not seen to require so much, yet still get a far better lather, as a consequence I feel that the Crabtree soap will last far longer. Plus the soap came with a very nice wooden bowl. Overall highly recommended.
Well worth the money - already ordered the next one!

The presentation of this soap in its little wooden box is great. However:
Lather: is thin and dries off rapidly. Bubbly rather than creamy. Read more
