Excellent scent, lackluster lathering performance
I *really* wanted to love this soap because the Sego aftershave balm is my favorite wet shaving purchase of the last year and having a one-stop supplies shop would be great. The scent on this soap is highly appealing to me, and I think it is very faithful to the product description. Where the soap fell short for me, however, is lathering. I gave it a dozen or so tries swapping between a synthetic and badger brushes, using more/less product, using more/less water, inverted breach brush loading, and slowly adding just a few drops of water ad infinitum but I just could not get this soap to form the kind of glossy, protective, clingy lather that I can easily get from B&M Excelsior-based and A&E Kaizen-based soaps. Each time I wound up with a porous unstructured foam and no peaking. My water is moderately hard (140 mg/L equivalent CaCO3) , but has never been an issue for the competition so in the context of other soaps that exist it was disappointing. The scent is an all-time favorite, I just wish I could get it to lather well.
Great shave, strong good smell, but clashes with my cologne.
My second Zingari soap and very pleased with the quality. The scent on this one is pleasant. Happy to have found what is becoming my new go to brand.
Great shaving soap in a great scent
Very easy to use and slick shaving soap in a great scent. I am able to use this soap without post shave products (but seriously, who wants to do that?) and it doesn't dry me out. The Nomad scent is also a unique take on bay rum that ignores spices for a more friendly accord. Great product.
Great fresh smelling soap and its performance is equally amazing.
