Czech & Speake Oxford & Cambridge Shaving Soap Refill
Czech & Speake shave soaps are a joy to use. This tallow based soap produces a very rich and slick lather and has an intoxicating scent of lavender (blend of English and French lavender) topped with herbaceous peppermint and rosemary essential oils with bergamot on a base of warm oak moss. In the words of Czech & Speake, Oxford & Cambridge "is a fresh and invigorating scent evocative of the English countryside, varsity matches and the great British sporting tradition". Who can argue with that?

Another great product bites the dust. As many of you know, Valobra manufactured this soap for C&S. Last year I switched to C&S 88, C&S Oxford & Cambridge, and Valobra Patchouli exclusively. Fortunately, I stocked up on most of these soaps before they ran out of stock. It’s my hope that someone will resurrect Valobra, and start manufacturing what is in my opinion the best soaps made. I made a big investment in the travel and home soap dishes for the C&S soaps, which makes it all the more painful....
I won't say I've used hundreds of soaps + creams...but it's close. The C&S Oxford & Cambridge is my favorite. Many agree, so it's no surprise to anyone reading this review. My favorite scent with a wonderful triple milled, tallow soap that provides a glorious lather. Bullgoose is my favorite vendor because Phil takes care of his customers. Typically, my order is on the way to me before I even get a chance to check my confirmation email. Usually arrives in 48 hours or less. And I'm on the East Coast. IMHO this is as good as it gets. Superior product and superior service.
Czech & Speake soaps are phenomenal. The Oxford Cambridge provides a lavender scent that has masculine undertones. It is a triple milled soap, so a puck lasts a long time. This will justify the price to those who are wondering about the cost. Highly recommended!
Saw review saying it didn't last very long... DON'T BLOOM this soap. It doesn't take much water at all. I soak my brush, load it, and bowl lather. I shave with it often, soap will last a really long time! Definitely worth the $$$
This my favorite lavender scent as well as my favorite soap. I mainly use r creams, but this soap lathers just as easily as my Castle Forbes creams, with a more manly lavender scent.
