I purchased the soap, balm and splash on a whim as I had never associated Greece with quality wet shave products. My perception was wrong! The soap face lathered very easily using my Semogue best badger. Scent was very pleasant and the slickness was as good as I have ever experienced in 55+ years of wet shaving. The post-shave feeling lasted for a long time and Faena will almost certainly become one of my 3 default soaps now that I am trying, due to to age, to reduce my large stock.
