Dragon’s Blood is a rather sweet spicy concoction. It’s got a base to it that’s rather reminiscent of vetyver, but I can’t quite identify what the spices are. Personally, I think it’s a bit too sweet, creeping towards the border of “sickly”, but the girlfriend rather seems to enjoy it.
It’s rather good strength-wise, coming on fairly strong, without any significant fading. In fact, it’s noticeable for a fair while after the shave is done.
As for the lather, it’s a rather thirsty soap, so don’t be too stingy with the water. It’ll be put to good use, making boat-loads of wonderfully thick & slick lather. Provides a “damned fine shave” indeed.
- 7/10 Scent Pleasantness
- 8/10 Scent Strength
- 9/10 Lather Quality
The 1oz sample puck went for $1.59, whereas a 3.5oz puck is $4.49; also available in tubs or in shaving sticks.
Overall, I’m giving this one a 7/10. Not my favourite scent, but I could certainly see others liking it a lot more.
