Performance is classic Razorock. This soap lathers easily, provides good glide and cushion with a nice post shave feel. If you are shaving slow you may need to touch up the lather during a pass but not always. The scent is as described peony and cedar predominate with undertones of musk. This is a lightly scented soap. At first I found it annoyingly light, but after several shaves I think they got the balance just right. If you are expecting the traditional scent bomb Razorock often provides this is not that experience. This is an ephemeral, lighter, and more nuanced scent experience. It reminds me of honeysuckle in the way that you almost have to chase the scent. It is very much worth the chase.
