Description:

The Mandate of Heaven (Tianming) is the divine authority given China's early emperors.  These individuals were seen as being selected by god and given the right to rule on behalf of this divine entity.  Although this right was god given, it could also be taken away.  The Mandate of Heaven decreed that rulers have a moral responsibility to act for the good of the people, or the Mandate could be lost.  In this way, the early Emperors of China were seen as gaining and losing the favor of Heaven with the rise and fall of their Dynasties.  If an Emperor was seen as acting against the good of the people, it was almost as if the people had a divine right (and still obligation) to act to overthrow their leader.  The recognition that the Emperor had both broken the Mandate and lost favor of the people, reinforced that he had lost the favor of Heaven as well.  This cycle defined the rise and fall of Dynasties in early China.

Maybe a dud

The scent seemed very faint amd stale. It didn't smell anything like the note description. The performance was outstanding but the scent was not anything like described.

Good stuff

I only have a sample of this soap. For me, the scent is light, but it's nice. Aon base is really great. Quality, price, size - it's hard to find something better. And one more thing - customer service is outstanding!!! Bill, you're doing a great job.

First acquaintance...

This is my first product from Murphy and McNeil. What can I say?.. C'est formidable! Excellent, high-quality product with excellent properties. I will definitely try other products. I'd like a little stronger flavor. Thank you for your talent!

Heavenly

Mandate of Heaven shave soap is Mandarin, Basil, Ginger, Numeg, Lotus, Incense, Violet, Musk, and Ambergis scent. This soap is extremely soft, in my opinion, I would call it a thick cream. It takes a great deal of water. However, I would not recommend blooming this soap, but rather just adding a little bit of water at a time to find that sweet spot. The soap also a very good post shave and very nice slickness as well.
