Doc Holiday was many things but one thing he was not was...a slob.

Holiday had rather refined tastes for a gunslinger of his time and known to be a rather snappy dresser, sharp in wit and style. Lilac & Fig, a classy scent reminiscent of Victorian times and something our outlaw hero Doc Holiday might have bought off the back of a stage coach that just arrived from back East. I envision Doc slapping on something similar before a long night of cards or an early playhouse performance at the Birdcage Theater in Tombstone , Az.  You may smell like Lilac & Fig but you ain't no daisy! 

This Soap was originally just a "one off" special soap I created for the Arizona Shavers first Meet Up. Somehow word got out and I soon was receiving emails and private messages about this mysterious, elusive soap called Dapper Doc. Eventually I decided the time was right to make this special soap available to the general public...enjoy!

I'm angry with you Douglas :) . I'm on a soap reduction plan and have promised myself that I would use only one soap until empty before switching up - and I was doing well before Dapper Doc came along. I never thought that I'd be into such a strong floral but 'the Doc' is fantastic. The Lilac bushes are blooming up here and just for fun I smelled the soap alongside a lilac flower bunch - bang on. For me, the scent is masculine because it's reminiscent of scents of my childhood home where we played rough and tumble amongst the spring lilacs - in fact my favourite hiding spot in our epic games of hide'n'seek was under our front stoop behind the lilacs. For me, the scent reminds me of boyhood games , old friends, exploring and getting into a little trouble (many kisses were stolen behind those lilacs too ;) I WILL be using this one until it tanks - but then I imagine I'll just get another one.

Perfect cushion, glide and great scent, "very cosmopolitan". Fragrant lilac brings out a touch of class and very pleasant after a long and stressful day, and the sweet fig undertone I find keeps the olfactory nerves looking for that subtle hint inducing that deep breathing calmness we rarely take time for and kept Doc'said TB at bay I'm sure. A lot of compliments and attention especially from the Mrs, highly recommend.

I imagine all other soaps from Phoenix lather up the same from all the online reviews I have watched. This soap was very easy to lather, and the performance from it was phenomenal. My only issue is the scent. I didn’t know what to really expect when I read the description and placed the order, but this is not what I expected. I was thinking it would have a more earthy presence to keep the flowery notes at a minimum. Maybe some people like that, I’m not sold on it yet. That being said I do like shaving with this soap. In the beginning of the lathering it comes on like oil-based paint, at least that’s what it looks like to me. It then just keeps handling more and more water like a champ, building up a nice lather to shave with. I got a great shave with my Ikon 102 slant and Derby Extra.

On the scent again, I did bloom the soap, twice, thinking it would bring out some of the fig to mellow out the lilac which it didn’t, at least I didn’t notice it.

I do enjoy the shave I get with this soap, the smell when shaving isn’t "very in my face", no pun intended, but smelling it when I open the tin to start my shave kind of makes me weary of using it. I’ll keep blooming it, maybe some of the lilac will die down.

I think the 8oz tin might be too much. I say that because the soap is so easy to build up, I probably swirled my brush in the soap for a 10 count and I had more than enough. I did a 30 count when I first got this to test the soap and that was overkill. I could probably do a 5 count and have plenty of soap to shave with. So I ordered the smaller sized tin of CaD. We’ll see how that works out. I’m sure it will lather like a beast as this one did.

I took two stars off for the scent because if the first wiff doesn’t make me eager to lather it up I can’t see giving it 4 stars, but it does perform at a 5 star level.

As soon as I popped the top on this soap when it arrived I was eager as a rooster in a hen house! I used it this morning and I have to say that I made the right choice with this one. I had been deliberating on which scent to go with for a week or two now. "Dapper Doc" has meet my expectations and then some. I think I may have found my new fav shaving soap.
