The Book of Kells is one of the greatest achievements of Christian and Irish art.
Dated to sometime around 800 AD, it is a massive and incredibly hand-decorated vellum manuscript containing four gospels of the New Testament that is far more visually stimulating than it is legible across its 340 pages.Thought to have been written by Celtic monks, it would have taken many years, perhaps across generations, to complete. The illustrations show similarities enough to show that at least four individuals were responsible for the incredible art that resides within the pages. Today the book rests at Trinity College in Dublin.

I purchased a sample of Kells shaving soap to compare it with another Sauvage dupe. It smells great, but the lather really sets it apart. Great cushion and slickness. Terrific soap from Murphy and McNeil. Highly recommended.
From the puck to the lather, this scent is one of my favorites. It’s fresh, masculine and as with all Murphy & McNeil soaps, an excellent performer.
This is a great performing soap, and the scent is a very nice and accurate homage to Dior Sauvage. When dialed in properly the soap should be almost like paste, and it takes on water very well. Initial slickness is excellent, but the residual slickness after you make your pass is not really there. That doesn't bother me though because I just add more lather using my brush. I would say the scent strength is about 4/10 on a scale, but I like that with my soaps. I always purchase the matching aftershave/splash because it generally has a stronger and longer lasting scent. The Murphy & McNeil aftershave is no exception here, as the lasts a few hours. In regard to the aftershave splash, I really enjoy the options to have alcohol or non-alcohol as well as the option to be mentholated.
One of the best I've used. You can't go wrong with this soap. Exceptional performance and a beautiful scent. Highly reccomended!
Spot on scent - goes great with Sauvage. Can’t say much more than what has already been said about the base - superb performer that provides great shaves!
