Lilac is one of my favourite floral scents, and Mystic Water did a pretty decent job of replicating it here. T’is a shame the girlfriend can’t stand lilacs. Oh well. The strength of the aroma was just ok, it started off decent enough, but faded a fair bit during the shave.
Strength-wise, it was decent enough. It started off rather strong, and faded a bit, rather quickly, but after an initial drop off stayed fairly steadily strong throughout the shave.
The lather was good; a decent amount of glide combined with a nice thick lather; a reasonable balance. I’d say the amount of water required to achieve this would be a bit below average. Definitely what I’d consider a quality shave.
- 8/10 Scent Pleasantness
- 8/10 Scent Strength
- 8/10 Lather Quality
Overall, I’d say it’s a 7/10. A bit stronger would have been nicer.
