Vitos gave me a pretty darned good shave. It was fairly easy to get a good lather out of it, nice and thick with good glide. Not too much in the way of volume, but that’s not all that big of a deal. Nothing out of the ordinary in the way of extra moisturizing properties, but still a nice solid shave.
The scent is a classic marzipan / sweet almond, with just a little hint of coconut. It’s quite pleasant; when the girlfriend gave the jar a sniff her eyes just lit up, and I had to warn her not to take a bite out of it.
Strength-wise is where it fails however. In the jar, it’s nice and strong. On the brush after loading up, it’s barely there. Once lathered up on the face, it fades to non-existence pretty swiftly.
- 9/10 Scent Pleasantness
- 5/10 Scent Strength
- 7/10 Lather Quality (reflects new scoring as outlined here)
Overall, I give it a 6/10. I wouldn’t recommend it really. Cella is better. Buy that instead.
