Scent Strength (balance):
There is little that can be said about Proraso shave soap that hasn’t already been said hundreds of times before. The Proraso name and shaving in general go hand in hand. For many Proraso was the shave soap of their fathers and of their grandfathers. The success of the Proraso brand is of no surprise to anyone who has used their product.
Proraso Eucalyptus & Menthol Shaving Soap is arguably one of their best known products. The green plastic bowl and barber shop strips are unmistakable and identifiable to not only “serious” shavers, but their wives and girlfriends. The Proraso Eucalyptus & Menthol Shaving Soap provides an excellent, refreshing experience, at a great price. And it’s most recent formulation has removed many of the chemicals that were found in the product before the update.
The most immediate and distinguishing feature of the Proraso Eucalyptus & Menthol Shaving Soap is its scent. The menthol and eucalyptus is nicely balanced, and doesn’t linger after your shave. The menthol provides a refreshing feeling rather than a stinging sensation after you finish your shave. However It goes without saying that if you are adverse to the menthol scent, this is not the soap for you.
I find that the lathering process takes a little longer than other soaps I have used, but the extra work is worth the result. The container the soap comes in is the perfect size for your brush and doesn’t require the transferring to a shaving soap bowl. The Proraso Eucalyptus & Menthol Shaving Soap applies nicely and rinses cleanly without leaving any soapy residue.
Finally it has to be noted that the Proraso Shaving Soap, Eucalyptus & Menthol seems to last a long time, much longer than other shave soaps I have used. Not sure why, just an observation.
