"CRSW Select Bay Rum: This new rendition of your "Bergamot & Bay" by the name of Bay Rum is an awesome new soap for the fall season. Good and slick lather as always and with a full and warm manly smell, full of the great spice scents in life. I didn't think I would be a fan of the Bay Rum scent but your new SELECT soap has convinced me." A.M.
"I have never tried a shaving soap as CRSW bergamota & bay soap, is a perfect soap, is a great fragrance for every day.
Great value! I recommend this, for me is simply the Best!
Thanks CRSW for your bright work!" D.F.
"Cold River Soap Works is as close to perfection as possible. I have tried the majority of the scents offered and they are all excellent, elegant and refined, and are among some of the most unique scents in shaving. I can name several CRSW scents that are among my all-time favorites in shaving. I even think my all-time favorite scent is a CRSW scent - probably Prato Verde (so far).
The performance of CRSW is also second to none and is in my opinion among the best (if not the best) performing shaving soaps available. They are easy to lather, provide outstanding glide and cushion, and leave the skin hydrated after shaving.
The packaging is classy, simple and distinct and the tubs themselves are thick-walled, sturdy and of high quality.
I highly recommend buying shaving soaps from Cold River Soap Works." A.T.
"Recently purchased your Jardin D'Orange soap. Great scent. Awesome slickness and cushion. Worth every penny." L.W.
"I tried your soaps based on CDB's reviews and the fact that you're out of Baldwinsville New York and I'm from Rochester and I couldn't be happier with the quality of the work you put into the product you send out." A.R.
"I have used shaving soaps from a lot of top notch manufacturers and Cold River Soap Works matches or exceeds their tallow soaps in quality and scent. I get a great, creamy lather from the Sandalwood and Vetiver soaps, and I get great irritation-free results from my shaves. My wife loves the fragrances. So, in all, it's all great, no complaints. I also enjoy the size of the soap tubs, which allow easy loading on my badger brush. Keep up the good work, and best of luck!" A.H.
"Dear Sir, I received my purchase of Vetivier Moderne and After Splash, to which I have to admit I am beyond impressed with your attention of detail and quality of craftmanship. The performance of your products is outstanding on so many levels…thank you so much for such great products.” H.S.
“To the ownership at Cold River, I recently received a package of soaps from you guys. I have been wet shaving for a little over 2 years and have close to 150 soaps, I have no idea why I hadn’t tried your soaps before, but I am so happy I finally did - OMG - you now have another loyal customer, your soaps are incredible and now one of my favorites! Is Honeywood always in your lineup or is it seasonal? A must have in my den forever and just to show you how much I love your stuff I am placing another order now. You guys have a good night and God Bless - you’ll be seeing my name often!" M.M.
“Earlier this week I placed an order for the Select Shaving soap in Sandalwood, it arrived quickly, which is always a bonus, with a nice hand written thank you note on the order form. Dropped my son off at his mothers and came home to prepare for date night. I have seen some reviews on you tube on your soaps, and was excited to try it. Let me say, I was not let down. The soap was amazing, and was the highest quality soap I have used in the past six years. I have been wet shaving for just as long. I will be placing another large order to round out the scents offered in my collection.” A.P.
“Hi Larry, I’ve finally gotten a chance to use the new Oliva soap you’ve put out. I got the Colonia Mediterrania scent as an homage to my Italian roots and because I like Colonia scents." J.V.
"Oliva is decisively the best soap I have ever used. The slickness is amazing. It has a lightness that is usually accompanied by wateriness or lack of cushion in other soaps, but is instead protective and hydrating in yours. I am really blown away at how you managed to integrate the dreaded olive pol into your already excellent formula. Moreover, I am impressed that such performance and enjoyment can come of a <$20 tin of soap. If I had to pick one soap to use for the rest of my shaves, it would without a doubt be this one." M.T.
"I have used artisan soaps, and most are fine, but this is really top notch, next level, A+ craftmanship that surpasses even the high end stuff." F.S.
"Thanks for an awesome soap. I look forward to getting more of it.” S.S.
“My package arrived with the spectacular soap and aftershave products. Fantastic stuff, thank you. You have a new regular customer. Healthy and peaceful holidays to you.” E.L.
“Hello Mr. Jones - I received my first order of CRSW Puro Fresco soap, splash and balm as well as Jardin d’Orange soap last week and have been using it daily. I just wanted to let you know how impressed I have been with your products, they’re the best I’ve ever used! Abundant lather, best cushion and glide I have ever had, and I am in love with the scents, they are something special! I am so glad that you are offering matching splash and balms as well, they leave my face feeling fantastic. Needless to say, my search is over, I have found what I am looking for, there is no need for me to look further! Keep up the great work, and thank you for the amazing products!” H.H.
