You make your own decisions and stand by them. You give orders and expect them to be immediately followed. You walk into a room and all eyes are on you. You are the Executive Man.
If confidence in a $2,000 suit could be bottled, this is what it would smell like.

Everyone knows Stirling Soaps are top notch performance. The scent was fantastic... I want to use it everyday but I almost don't want to get used to it. Maybe I'll save it for special occasions when I'm feeling fancy. Like Monday through Friday. Unknown on 2nd May 2017
I'd seen this shave soap recommended on a variety of sites, especially r/wicked_edge over on Reddit. It lathers well, the smell is fantastic, and my fiancee is actually okay with me shaving now! If I ever actually run out of the tin I know that I will be ordering a second one. Scott on 1st May 2017
Great! Dwight on 14th Apr 2017
Soap is outstanding along with the scent Unknown on 14th Apr 2017
I purchased the Stirling shaving soap after having read many positive reviews about its performance. I'd been hesitant to try the shaving soap given that quite a bit of information online pointed towards lathering difficulties (to the point that the Stirling website has a whole page dedicated to lathering tips).
But, I decided to put aside my hesitation after receiving a free sample of the bath soap in the Executive Man fragrance when I purchased a Stirling shaving brush. I liked both the customer service and the scent of the bath soap so much that I decided to place a larger order of the bath soap. I thought the bath soap purchase gave me a good excuse to try the shaving soap, and bought both the Executive Man and the Stirling Gentleman scents.
I'm relatively new to using shaving soaps, having begun to use them only over the past six months or so, after using high-quality shaving creams for approximately three years prior to that. I'd had varying results from the array of creams and soaps, running the spectrum from 'hated it' (Speik and Trumper creams), through 'not bad' (Proraso, Musgo Real, TOBS), 'really liked it' (St James of London and Truefitt & Hill creams, Tcheon Fung Sing and Razorock original formula soaps), to 'absolutely love it' (Castle Forbes cedarwood and sandalwood cream, Razorock lanolin formula soap in the Tuscan Oud scent).
These last two in particular, I've found work very, very well for me; they have been my favorites over the past year, and what I shave with most often (with the SJL and T&H creams mixed in frequently). From the CF and RR lanolin, I get great lather, great closeness, great post-shave, and with scents that I really enjoy day after day. The CF cream is pretty spendy; the RR lanolin formula is much lower priced, so it's easy to be less stingy with it.
After a couple weeks of using the Stirling shaving soap, I am very, very happy with it. I prefer lathering on my face rather than in a bowl or on my palm. And yes, developing the Stirling's lather to the 'I love it' point requires sustaining a more intensive lathering effort for a longer period of time; a couple of vigorous minutes, at least, and requiring that I work the lather with the help of my non-brush hand to push lather out of the brush, then re-incorporate and re-work it with the lather on my face. It takes more effort to lather up the Stirling than it takes to lather up anything else from my rather modest current selection.
But, the effort produces a lather that is abundant, dense, extremely slick, and very protective; the Executive Man scent is fantastic, the shave is as close or closer than with anything else, and the post-shave feel is on par with (on some days, superior to) that of the CF cream. And the post-shave of the Stirling is better than that of everything else (including the post shave and closeness of the RR lanolin that I like so much, and which has a post shave that I found better than that of any of the other soaps, and than the post shave of all the creams except the CF).
From the Stirling, I get performance that equals or surpasses that of my two other favorites (the aforementioned CF and RR lanolin), with a scent that is different and extremely enjoyable, in exchange for a little more effort on the lathering. And, it's far less spendy than the CF cream.
Is the lathering effort an issue? Sure; on the couple days I've been running late over the past couple weeks, I've shaved with something else. On days I've had a little more time (or as much time as I wanted), I've used the Stirling every time. The Stirling is a flat-out fantastic shaving soap.
A final note about my experience with the Stirling shaving soap over the past couple of weeks: I found the Executive Man has lathered a little differently - I got a thicker lather, and faster - than the Stirling Gentleman. Maybe it has been coincidence, maybe from the slight variations across batches from the manufacturing process, maybe it's because the two pucks are in containers of different shapes and sizes. Regardless, the performance, closeness, and post-shave have been about the same from both scents, despite very minor (but noticeable) variation in the lathering behavior of the two.
Overall, I've found the Stirling shaving soap has quickly earned a spot at the top of my list of go-to favorites, and I hope to be purchasing more (and in additional scents) in the near future. This is a shaving product with top-notch performance, a wonderful scent, and a very affordable price. And, the company's customer service is outstanding. I highly recommend this shaving soap.

Stirling Executive Man is my new favorite Stirling scent (well 1A, Stirling Lime comes in at 1B).
As with all Stirling soaps that I have used, it is a top performer for lather thickness, protection, slickness and after shave face feel. Stirling soaps are on my very short list of favorites.
The scent, to me, is a clean, fresh fougere type scent. It's the best I can do since I am not good at detailed scent descriptions.
I would not hesitate to recommend you try this, or any, Stirling soap. John on 4th Apr 2017
This shaving soap - Executive Man - is one of the best (and one of my favorites!) in my shaving den. I have a large collection of various shaving creams and soaps from makers all over the globe, and I think that my Stirling Soaps are without exception the least expensive of them all (in fact, several of them from England are about twice the cost!) and yet these Stirling Soaps consistently hold their own with those much pricier soaps re: load and latherability, smoothness and protection during the shave, and post-shave glide/slickness, not to mention the scent, which is a great masculine scent that I really love. This soap gives nothing away to any of those others, is made right here in the USA, and I look forward every time I reach in and pick Executive Man for the day's shave to the great experience and scent that I know I'm going to get - consistently excellent each and every time. Awesome shaving soap! Thanks guys for cranking out such great products that don't break the bank! Scott (San Diego) on 3rd Apr 2017
Performance, Value, and Selection are all first rate. Sterling is about the only shave soap I buy anymore. This is one my favorite scents. Also have the splash and balm. All are outstanding.
Thanks Sterling! Bob R. on 18th Mar 2017
It's been said before, a clean, masculine scent that elicits comments. I love this stuff, tried a sample and came back for a big "jar". I also find the Aftershave Splash and AS Balm go well with the Soap. The Body lotion carries the same fragrance to the rest of your body, same great quality. I'm a fan! Kevin on 14th Mar 2017
Executive Man was the first shaving soap I sampled with Stirling and I could not have been happier with the product. Highly recommend. Great lather with a refreshing, formal scent. D on 9th Mar 2017
I bought this after having gone through nearly a whole bottle of aftershave in this scent. The performance is great as always. My only problem with this soap is that the scent is slightly too subtle for my taste but using it with the aftershave gives the perfect amount of scent. joseph on 8th Mar 2017
I picked up the shaving soap & got a free sampler of the executive man soap. I was very pleased with the product as it smells strong but in a good way.
The following day I was made CEO.

Heard great things about Stirling mainly this scent. I love it alot. Really good later. Steve on 24th Feb 2017
OMG! the most amazing smell and lather, period! I'm fairly new to the wet shaving but I can easily tell the different between this one,proraso and of course, chemical cans! so far the best shaving soap. so easy to lather, soft on the skin, simply perfect. I just ordered 7 more scents to try! -A on 21st Feb 2017
But, Prefer bit stronger scent. Unknown on 21st Feb 2017
I'm a cream guy, and this was my foray into soaps. While I just got the sample, I'm ordering the full bar as soon as I run out. The sample has lasted two weeks, and still going strong (I expect to get a month out of this sample).
The scent is clean and fresh, with just the right amount of "muskiness" to make it feel more manly. Compared to other soaps I've tried, Stirling has the quality hands down. Best lather, best loading, best ingredients and fantastic pre-shave and post-shave feel of silkiness and smoothness.
While the Baker Street scent wasn't to my personal liking, this one is simply glorious. Lan on 15th Feb 2017
First off, the smell is awesome, like a man ready to go into the meeting and run things. I have a hard time picking which sent to go with.
Secondly, the lather this soap creates is so thick and slippery.
Ted on 12th Feb 2017
As with all Sterling products you just can't beat the value and thr performance. Excellent scent on this soap and paired with the AS it's a home run in my books. Shawn Kelly on 8th Feb 2017
The scent is top notch. This will definitely be one of my regulars from now on. Kevin on 2nd Feb 2017
