    Fantastic soap!
    The protection and slickness on this soap is astonishing. I had passed by these for a while but decided to just try them. I’d highly recommend giving this a shot. As for the scent- I feel like all of us, myself include, get into the mix of all these complicated scent profiles. This soap reminds you how the simple scents can be amazing. Lilac is a very nice scent and the scent of the soap stayed with me during the shave and hung around a little after. Don’t know how long it lasts with an unscented/no aftershave.

    I remembered the 2017 fragrance a little differently. As more dark and dark. Version from the end of 2019 as if slightly sweetened.

    This soap was purchased as a gift for my dad so I don’t have many details but first and foremost the scent is probably his favorite part and the whole reason I purchased it. There are only a few lilac scented soaps on the market and I do not regret choosing this one. He mentioned it took him a couple shaves to get use to it (I should mention he strickly face lathers) but once he had a couple shaves, the soap really lathered well for him and he seem genuinely pleased with it.

    The service is about as good as it gets with Maggard Razors. I made my order on a Saturday afternoon and within 45 minutes I was emailed tracking information. It was delivered on the following Monday.

    Great service and product. What more do you need?

    Just got 3 new soaps in from Maggard, I’ve only had time to try this one and it is awesome. My wife really loves the scent after i shave, not to over powering but definitely noticeable. And of course Maggards customer service is second to none. Look forward to trying the other two shave soaps now and will continue to do business with Maggards

    To me, this soap is luxury. I enjoy using it on a weekend morning, when I have time to revel in the scent and the performance. At present I follow it up wth Lilac Vegetal, but when that’s gone I’m going to try some of the Maggard Lilac AS.

    Was looking for a Lilac scented soap and was browsing here and decided to give it a try. I have been trying to stick with glycerin soap as they seem to lather easier in my hard water and some tallow soaps I don’t like the post shave feel of. Now this is a good quality soap and I really enjoyed using it. Love the scent and the slickness and look forward to using it again. If you are looking for a true lilac scent this is it.

    I started by trying a few samples and liked this one the best. Very glad I did as the lilac was my favorite. This soap has a great fragrance without being too strong. It gives you a thick rich lather whether you face lather or use a bowl. Will be stocking up with more of this one! Maggards has great products along with their service. No need to look anywhere else for your shaving needs.

    Wasn’t going to try a Maggard brand soap after not liking a pre-shave oil from them. Then my wife informs me that lilac is her favorite scent. I tossed this into the cart as an add-on with a couple more expensive soaps to round out an order, and I’m glad that I did. It is a GREAT soap. The lather, scent strength, scent quality, and post-shave skin conditioning are all excellent for me. I would not change a single thing about this soap. I will definitely try more Maria Arman soaps in my next purchase.

    I’m pretty old school. Heck, I’m pretty old. Started with Colgate and Williams. Hence, hard pucks and boar brushes are my benchmarks. Gave this a try. Almost too easy. Lovely with a synthetic brush. Great cushion. A wee bit dear, but very nice product. Guess you can teach an old dog new tricks.

    This is my favorite shave soap that I’ve tried so far! Really, all I can do is echo the positive comments everyone else has made so far. Lovely!

    This is an awesome soap that lathers well and smells great. The scent is old school and many wetshavers have been waiting for someone to bring lilac back. Thank you Maggard Razors for the great product!

    The scent of lilac reminds me of a girl I knew in college… (’nuff said?)

    I love this scent – simple but not flat. And not unmasculine. And it is is light enough so that I can enjoy it on me and I don’t worry about other people detecting it. Which is also good because I work and spend personal time in places where scents are frowned upon because of some people’s sensitivity.

    This soap lathers very well, had a nice cushion and smells very nice. The scent lingered a bit longer than some of the other Maggard soaps. I really like this one much more than I thought that I would.

    After stealing my husbands sapone and using his razor, he bought my own shaving gear for our anniversary. I love. Love love the lilac. The smell is subtle, the lather is nice, and the smell brings me back to May in Illinois. This is an excellent product.

    I normally don’t like floral scents or shaving, as they usually give me a headache, but this lilac smell was wonderful. Relaxing, just strong enough to be present during the shave, but doesn’t linger afterwards. Cushion on the soap was very good, slickness was also good, and no issues with protection. All around a solidly performing soap with a great scent.

  17. 5 out of 5


    Probably my favorite soap to date. The smell is great, lather is great, shave is great, and it has lasted me since August and I’m just now about to order some more. Although I’ll probably try a different scent just because.

    This might be the best floral scent of any soap I’ve smelled. A great value at this price.

    Bought this a few months back to try a new soap. This soap rocks!. Great lather and is very slick. I have used it about 5 times now and every shave has been good. Tons of lather. Try this soap, you will be happy you did.

    Absolutely amazing scent and performance. Closest soap I’ve found to the performance of a cream. Smells like Spring in Northern Michigan — it’s perfection!!!!

    One of the best smelling soaps I have ever used; true lilac!

  22. 5 out of 5


    really like it. I love lilac scent, I knot it’s not viril but I don’t care, just to good memory with lilac scent when I was young.

    About the soap it’s a good creamy soap and easy lather. This soap is better than fougere sauvage in my opinion as it later really better. Sould have buy a puck not a sample. I look forward to my next purchasse.

    I wasn’t sure what to expect, but what an amazing scent. Often times, for me at least, the floral scents are too heavy. While this is unmistakably a lilac scent, it doesn’t overpower. Great lather and glide as well.

  24. 5 out of 5


    Very welcome scent, and it does smell like lilacs. My family and I always have had lilacs in the yard, so it’s the scent of spring at home to me.

    Celebrated the 2nd month anniversary with Maggards Lilac – still a perfect 10, an A+. So smooth and with a wonderful aroma. This soap is perfection.

    I have been ordering samples from a number of places. I have used close to 50 different soaps and creams so far. This lilac is by far one of my favorites. The smell, the lather, the protection, and how my skin feels afterward makes this soap a stand out,

  27. 5 out of 5


    Okay, I’ll admit it, I tend to like floral scents in my shaving products and this is one of the best. I have a Dwarf Korean Lilic plant, and this product smells exactly like it’s blossoms. Performance wise it has great lather, glide and face protection. One last word, I really appreciate the fact that the jar is intentionally left partially empty making brush loading relatively mess free. Highly recommended!

    My daughter bought me this soap I got to say I was blown away!! I will be trying more of your products!! I really liked the protection it gave my face how quick it was to lather and the scent was perfect not over powering at all!! Just got it today. Used it today and will keep on using it!! Thankyou!!

    While Lilac definitely isn’t the most masculine of scents, you owe it to yourself to at least order a sample of this soap. Maggard’s Lilac shaving soap has accurately captured the pleasing aroma of fresh lilac blossoms being carried on the wind. The scent is neither over-powering or too purfumey it is simply the perfect scent for a spring morning shave!

    I got a sample of this as well as the others to try out. It had a nice subtle scent in the container, but once I loaded the brush and face lathered it produced a great scent. I loaded it on my badger/boar mixed brush and face lathered. This soap created a nice rich, creamy lather with great glide and cushion. It didnt take much to have enough for a 3 pass shave. I will definitely be buying a full size container of this soap. I used it With Draggon Noir and they went well together in my opinion. This is now one of my favorite soaps.

    Lather? You want lather? OK, got lather. Protection, you want protection? OK, got protection. Glide, you want your razor to glide? OK, got razor glide. Aroma? You want a pleasant aroma that stays long enough for the shave? OK, got pleasant aroma. What else you want? This Lilac from Maggard is perfect as is. Perfection. Thank you.

    This is a fantastic product! I love the smell of lilacs, but there isn’t another lilac product on the market as far as I know, so this is a welcome addition to the world of wet shaving. The fragrance is authentic, strong, and lingering – smells exactly like blooming lilacs. Lathers quickly and easily, and produced some of the slickest lather I’ve ever shaved with. Offered a very smooth and comfortable shave, and a great value as you get a pretty large tub for the price (about the same as a TOBS tub).
