I just had this arrive, and thought I would give it a spin with today's shave. Here is my review of it, but it's just after only having tried it once. This is an extremely nice smelling AS, but it is incredibly light. You almost have to put some in your hand and sniff it to get it's scent. It scent is that of a deliciously orangey variety. I can see this being used more in the summer months, but I would use it all year round. It has no sting to it at all. Depending on your preference here, that is either good or bad. I tend to like a good sting to let me know if I had a too close shave, but I can live without it. (This would be a great advantage if you know you had a bad shave and want to avoid a painful AS application.) It will leave your face feeling great afterwards. I bought this on the recommendation from another board, and the fact I like acquiring vintage-type AS's. (this was a new bottle bought from Amazon. I mean I like shave products that have been around a long time.) I would say this isn't a great AS, but a very good one. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a very light scented AS, which I tend to like as it won't clash with my cologne. Anyone else have experience with this nice AS? Please share your thoughts. If there is something I may have missed, feel free to ask and I will relay my impressions.

I love the Lucky Tiger range for the most part and this is a great product. Nice, light, fresh but comforting and slightly medicinal/herbal scent, feels lovely on the skin and certainly a very good after shave emollient.
I would recommend this to anyone. Just wish it was a little easier to get hold of in the UK.
I agree with Jon on this, it is lovely stuff but it can be difficult to get hold of and is expensive in the UK. Sixteen quid on Amazon isn't bad but you can get it for $16.62 in the US (which is about ten pounds).
And don't get me started on the price of the Plisson synthetic brush in the UK...
