Mama Bear’s Mountain Waters is their take on Creed’s Silver Mountain Water scent. The overall impression is freshness; a nice combination of citrus, green tea, and blackcurrants, with a hint of musk.
It is however, fairly weak. Just barely noticible when lathered up and applied to the face, and even that fades a fair bit during the shave.
As for the lather, here’s the Mama Bear boilerplate review: Lathers up nice and thick to begin with; be sure to add a decent amount of water to get enough glide, but not too quickly as it’s easy to over-shoot the mark and be left with something too runny; if you’re using a scuttle, the heat will cause the lather to break down between passes, but a few extra drops of water and a quick stir will fix that up nicely. Gives a perfectly nice shave.
- 9/10 Scent Pleasantness
- 6/10 Scent Strength
- 7/10 Lather Quality (reflects new scoring as outlined here)
6/10 overall. Not nearly strong enough of a scent to really make the shave more enjoyable.
