Experimental is a shaving soapproject rather than aproduct. Each soap is handmade in micro-batch quantities of around 5 tubs. The batches represent a change in formula - sometimes large and sometimes small. AllExperimental soaps are tested for performance and only those with great performance are released.
We are proud of the performance of allExperimentalsoaps. We know that there are several unknowns when buying one of these soaps so they are priced accordingly. At $8.99 these soaps are punching WELL above their weight class!
Formula 20.1B: This formula has proven to be a winner in lather quality, slickness and post shave. It performs as well, if not better, than the 17.x but is easier to lather and far less thirsty. This batch focused on the process rather than the formula. The batch size increased from 6 to 12 soaps.
The scent is Bay Rum with a blend of Essential Oils and fragrance oils. I'm a big fan of bay rum and if I have one regret about this batch it's that the scent is light. The fragrance oil smelled fantastic but the strength of the oils didn't hold up as much as I had hoped. It is a pleasant, mild bay rum that starts to open up while lathering with top notes of lime and sweet orange.
