Lothur Kadota shaving soap
Kadota was inspired by an accord idea by Jean Claude Ellena in his book, The Diary of a Nose.
Jean Claude Ellena writes that Stemone in combination with gamma-Octalactone can produce an effective illusion of the smell of figs. He says “Stemone gives an impression of mint leaves or fig leaves, it all depends on what I want to make it say. For the smell of ripe figs I recommend adding ethyl maltol, but for dried figs the answer lies in concrete of iris.”

Not going to write about the base quality as Lothur shines in all departments i.e. lubrication, protection, postshave. Scentwise I find Kadota to be a pleasant bright clean scent (I'm just terrible at breaking down scents into individual notes so I'm not even going to try). Scent strenght is mild (4/10). Overall a great release by Lothur.
