To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I use this in the shower; we have fairly hard water, and I have no problem producing a nice lather with this bar. The scent is pleasant but not overpowering; I used another brand of Bay Rum soap, and while it worked well enough, it also left me smelling like a ham according to my wife. This appears to be a hard milled castile soap, and it's lasted a long time. already- about five weeks of daily use. I'm ordering another bar at this point so I won't have to do without.
This is some real fine soap. Big bar that lasts and the scent holds up pretty well. It doesn't leave a strong scent on you and it won't last all day but the bar keeps its scent as good as any so far. If you want something that you can still smell at the end of the day this isn't it, but it smells good when you are bathing and leaves you clean.
I bought the Spiced Rum scent, but did not smell as I expected. Its not a bad smell at all, but not a spiced rum scent. It reminds me exactly of a spiced orange tea that we make sometimes. Only other complaint is that it doesnt leave a fragrance on you. Smells good in the shower when washing, but can not smell any of it on you when you rinse off and get out of the shower. Other then that.... it seems to clean good. It lathers good. And lasted about 3 weeks being used every day.
I really liked this soap, right out of the plastic and it's not as expensive as some of the others. The shea is moisturizing and the spiced rum gives this soap a heady kick that will have you saying, "Ahoy, me mateys!"
