Lothur Dave shaving soap
LØTHUR SIGNATURE SCENT
The inspiration behind ‘DAVE’ comes from our founder’s father David, a great source of inspiration at Løthur. This was a man who was seldom found without a cup of the ‘good stuff’ in hand (English breakfast tea) and was rarely seen out of his sacred space, the back garden. David grew giant lilies, creeping jasmine, tall sweet peas and vibrant iris flowers.
DAVE opens with light, citrusy and fruity top notes, reminiscent of Darjeeling tea. It has a soft jasmine accord at its heart and is perfectly rooted with notes of assam and powdery iris root.

Soft croap like goodfellas or razorock but on another totally higher level. Very nice scent, kind of light floral, very close to proraso sensitive pre-shave. Easy to lather and great properties of slickness, residual and cushion. Great on post-shave too, moisturizing but not oily. Top base. Recommended.
I’ve been wetshaving for about 15 years and I also work in a store where we sell high end shaving supply, ”nische” fragrances and other toiletries. That doesn’t have to mean anything but let me tell you that i’ve tried just about every soap base there is. Siero, Nai, CK6 (the other CKs), Milk steak, Kaizen and so on.
This tops them all, for me anyway. The soap is really easy to dial in and the residual slickness is akin to dunking your face in snail slime. Look, this soap checks every ”category” (ease of lather, water endurance, post and so on) of what makes a high end soap and then some.
What truly makes this soap unique to me is the consistency of the lather. It has this fatty and slippery feel without being greasy or hard to wash off. You can truly feel the ingredients at work here. I have about 150+ soaps and I could gladly use this base alone. I just like scents and fragrances too much so that would be boring but it is that good without a doubt. At least for me. The scent is a beautiful floral Darjeeling with some creamy woody undertones topped with some juicy fruityness. Some artisans go overboard with their scents (looking at you A&E) but this you could use every day without it being cloying or overbearing.
At this price, or any price, this soap is unbeatable.
