I only brought this soap because one of the Captain Fawcett videos appeared in my youTube feed and I was amused by their whimsical sense of humour. I've not really come across anyone on the shaving forums raving about this soap; which is surprising as I think this is a top notch soap right up there with MWF and D.R. Harris soaps.
The scent is described as having "top notes of Bergamot and Mandarin". I expected a country fragrance as something you might encounter strolling through the woods. But this is more like a cologne, the sort of scent you'd walk past on the ground floor of Selfridges. Scents are subject but I really like this soap's heavier barber shop smell.
And if you interested in the aesthetic aspects don't be misled by the picture. The lid is adorned with a substantial medallion/plaque with the Captain Fawcett logo and name. I'm sure it's only plastic but it looks like solid metal. This is a pretty impressive looking dish that could easily be left on display in your bathroom (unfortunately I keep mine shut away in a cupboard!)
