Shave is fairly good, but to me, not worth the price of five times more than Proraso.
The qualities I want in a shaving cream are, first, that it create a generous amount of lather when you whip it with your brush. Next, that this lather also be compact, slick, and durable. Dense lathers affect your beard most intensely, helping it stand up and remain wet. To the extent the lather is slick, it makes it easier for you to obey the First Law of Wet Shaving: "Never push on a safety razor. Let the razor manage the cutting itself." To the extent the lather is durable, it makes it easier for you to see what you've already cut, and what remains to be done. Bottom line: Acqua di Parma is the most generous, wettest, densest, slickest, and most durable of all the premium creams. It literally does not get better than this.
A very nice cream but just as good as DR Harris, Geo F Trumper and Taylors. No complaints except the price. Fragrance is mild. Lathers up very well.
