For all of the craftsman fuss of the label and the site description, the shave cream is rather pedestrian. The scent has a citrus high note and that's about it. I couldn't detect any of the other fragrances promised. In addition, the lather is more soap than a hefty, protective, slick covering. A more accurate description of the fragrance would be "lemon-lime." Why bother ordering that from Italy when you can get a Derby tube for around $6. Shave cream like this should be European exotic—a masterful combination of leathery notes that seem foreign but combine for a trip abroad and a rich, thick experience. Just sayin'.
