I'd like to give a shout out to a few individuals that were a great help during our best year ever, 2020.

Matt Lipripper660 has become a friend over the last couple of years. He's given tester feedback for some of our scents & products, stood up to some criticism on our behalf, and been an overall great guy. Overall, a great enhancement to my DFS time.

Tommy TommyCarioca has been a great cheerleader too for us after his 2020 discovery of Sir Henry's. He added a new term to my vernacular, "whisker butter". After describing our soap as such, I'll never forget the term, "whisker butter". T has been instrumental in helping with something that you guys will see in 2021 from Sir Henry's. Stay tuned.

John churchilllafemme created a thread titled "Fragrance Terms". I've really enjoyed that thread since it started over 4 years ago! Many of you don't know this, but out of all of our scents, the only one we researched and compared to other scents during development was our Sir Henry's Sandalwood. It was our first "scent in the soap" product. We were going to launch on Amazon for the first time and really wanted a wide appeal Sandalwood scented product. My M.O. for ALL other scents in our lineup was to develop a concept without smelling ANYTHING else from ANYONE else. COVID gave me more time to contemplate scents and we used this year to be aggressive (for us) to launch 3 new scents. The development and introduction of Island Estate Bay Rum is a DIRECT result of my reading of that thread. I READ about what a great Bay Rum scent should be. Only after we had the formulation did I smell other BR's from competitors to see how we compared. I dare say better than any of them.

Scott Bouki simply has the best soap write-ups around. I enjoy all of them. We still say you smell like Uncle Jack around here whenever one of us uses Quartet after his comments about our Barbershop scent.

I may add to this as I think about more individuals that made some positive impressions here. Feel free to add your own "shout outs".

I'm going to add ExtraProtein to the list this year. His artwork is simply amazing.
Also, to those of you not named that gave us a shot this year. Thank you.
