    1. unique licorice or anise.

      Smell is strong and lasting, the menthol kick is fantastic to end the shave. As always delivers great lather and glide. on 11th Jan 2018

    2. Shaving Soap

      If you like the scent of black licorice, this soap is for you. on 15th Dec 2017

    3. No shortage of anise or ice

      This is the first real mentholated soap I've had the chance to use, and boy was it a treat. But more on that in a minute.

      First off - if you're not a lover of anise (licorice), this might not be the soap for you. It's very pronounced. It was the only thing I could smell when opening the box when it arrived. If you're a fan of that delicious aroma, then this will be right up your alley.

      As for the menthol, it's definitely icey. I will admit that the first time I lathered it up, I was so focused on finding that menthol chill that I felt a bit underwhelmed. But after actually lathering up and shaving, it was noticeable. Post-shave was amazingly cool and refreshing.

      Overall, this is an awesome soap, which shouldn't be a surprise. Slick, rich, made for an awesome shave. Definitely a fan of this one!

    4. smells like licorice

      Wasn’t expecting this smell, I don’t like it at all on 14th Oct 2017

    5. Terrific soap

      I read the reviews for this soap before I bought it. The smell of black licorice and menthol is fantastic. I have used it twice since I recieved it and it a great soap. on 13th Oct 2017

    6. Great as expected

      Black Ice is the same great lather- thick, rich, super slick, great cushion- as other Stirling soaps. If you love black licorice and menthol as I do, you’ll love this soap. on 9th Oct 2017

    7. Black Ice

      I would to say this is the favorite scent as I love the scent of black licorice so it reminds me of Crows Gumdrops. on 1st Mar 2017

    8. Get it if you like black licorice

      Definitely the most strongest smelling soap I've used so far. Even leaving it out when it first arrived left a lingering smell of black licorice. However, if you enjoy that type of smell than you can't go wrong buying this! on 16th Feb 2017

    9. Great Stuff, good deal.

      Price is excellent and the quantity is above average so you get a good deal.

      The lather formed very quickly for me and had staying power. It is very slick but comes off cleanly afterwards. I go with a three pass ritual and the lather doesn't break down through all three passes. I would say the menthol is on the heavier side as well as the scent. Neither is over bearing but have definite presence. Speaking of scent, it is close enough to want to take a bite out of it! Afterwards though, it washes away with very little to no lingering.

      This was my first Stirling soap, and I will continue to add to my collection.

    12. Nice soap

      Really really wished the scent was stronger, but otherwise the feel and the menthol overall is amazing. Glad I tried a sample of this as it will probably be in the next order. on 14th Dec 2016

    13. Just Wow!

      I am a big fan of Executive Man but wanted to try a few different options. Lathered up with Black Ice and wanted to take a bite out of it! My Mom could have washed my mouth out with this anytime.;)
      Great lubrication, great lather and great feel during and after my shave.
      Splashed some cold water on my face and "kicked it up a notch". I believe!!!!!! Ready for the day. Great product.

    14. Black Jelly Beans!

      Loved the scent as soon as I opened it. I leave it open in my room because the scent is so good. I ordered a bunch of samples this time, but this one made it on to my "to buy a full puck" list as soon as I opened it and had my first shave with it. Performance is excellent - nice and slick.
      Will definitely have a permanent place in my rotation.

    15. Amazing!

      This is my top soap for warmer weather! I love the scent, the performance is typical amazing Sterling. The menthol is strong but not too strong, I couldn't imagine trying any of the glacial soaps though... I will always have this soap in my cabinet. I took a month trip to California and only brought this soap and didn't miss any of my others. on 27th Oct 2016

    16. Black Licorice

      Fantastic smelling soap, brings back memories on 14th Sep 2016

    17. Cold licorice

      Amazing soap. Smells great, performs amazing. I had anise and black ice trial, and now full puck of it... on 25th Jul 2016

    18. Sweet candy licorice!

      Another fantastically performing soap from Stirling. The menthol is absolutely perfect in this particular puck. A gradual ascension from barely noticeable to it's peak where it's almost on the edge of going overboard, but sustainably maintains an excellent and bearable chill across your face. Not quite to the point of making my eyes water either, but still consider something else if your tolerance to menthol is low. The scent is a bit on the too candy licorice side for me though. I love licorice, but I was hoping for more of an Anise smell. It's undeniable what the inspiration for this recipe is. 5 stars for performance and, though strong, a good smelling puck of sweet delight! on 19th Jul 2016

    19. black licorice.

      If you like licorice then this is definitely the product for you. Very robust black licorice scent! on 12th Jul 2016

    20. Now I'm Sure!!!!

      I have become a Menthol shaver and this soap if you like Licorice is another great addition to the soap arsenal. A clean and fresh cooling shave with that great post shave skin feel. I was not sure whether to sample or not, but I am glad I did!!!! on 15th Mar 2016
