Soapy Bathman Tropical Lime

[Image: yybWViT.jpg]

Sometimes it’s not just about the performance of the soap. It’s about how much you look forward to the shave with it. In today’s world, this older version of the Soapy Bathman formula is still completely adequate, but there are several more recent soap bases that perform even better. However, I’m always excited to use Tropical Lime. For someone like me, who has an abundance of soaps, that says a lot.

Odd scent. I like it but odd. This will be polarizing. Mates well with m7, but 'la strange'[Image: 0251d3f5add89be16d3db0492d013c11.jpg]

Sixty seconds of loading lead to a thick and satisfying lather. It’s tempting to underload Cade since it foams up quickly. After only 15 seconds, you may think you’ve got all the fixings for a great shave. But give the puck a full minute of swabbing, and you’ll get a much richer lather and a much slicker emulsion. These hard vegetable soaps respond best to dogged loading and a strong wrist.

I agree. I bought that scent when it was available last year. Passed it on. Great scent in many ways, but I immediately made an association that ruined it for me. Those darn scent associations… (Though sometimes they can be fun, too.)

I have been really liking Black Tie Razor Company's offerings of late and this morning was Black Velvet. It's a vetiver dream!  Upon opening the tub I'm hit with notes of black pepper and the citrusy top notes of the vetiver.  Add a wet brush though and the baser, dirtier vetiver notes come rolling home.  This is not a smoky dirty Salters French Vetiver but more nutty and earthy like Mikes.  Scent strength is medium and stays that way throughout the shave. Slickness is top notch.  Lather is medium structure but I find this soap to be interesting in that I can get medium to high structure from the same soap by beating it longer.  I like medium better so I didn't work that hard.   Today is going to be a great day.

Ah. Cade.  That's what I like to see.  And I concur that loading is a process not to be shortened.  A good loading reveals just how good this soap is.
