I've been less than happy with every great vegan out there......little bummed this is in vegan but the reviews give me pause.

I prefer citrus forward Barbershop scents over the powdery versions. Barbershop scents usually come either citrus or powdery forward.

Ah, now that you mention it. It does make sense.
I have B+M Seville and I still struggle to see how it's considered a barbershop scent. So cheers for the info. I've always related the type of scent to a smooth powdery accord.

Definitely interested in this Vegan base though.

I too was absolutely blown away by the performance of "Soap". (as one could conclude from my review) I too gave it another try again today and again, ***amazing***! It confirmed, for me, that this is the best soap base I have used to date, period! Can't wait for more Janus Vegan releases to come!. That said, it won't preclude me from purchasing GD's other bases as well. I have not found one I dislike...

Clubman to me is the ultimate in the powdery vein. Mike's BS along with Maggards London BS are more citrus forward to me. Seville is in the middle of both. Stirling BS I find closer to powdery and MLS Kraken is much more citrus forward category.

I have been waiting for a proper scent in the new vegan base and a Colonia style Italian Barbershop will do just fine. I could not bring myself to buying the plain "Soap" offering.

You would be very surprised the soap really smells good

Barbershop scents vary so much from maker to maker that I am not sure exactly what one is supposed to really smell like.

I think it's supposed to be a Colonia type scent

Just got an email stating that the big release.(originally scheduled for tomorrow 'April 17th') has be postponed until the 29th.
Reason being, is that he needs to make sure everything is ready to ship right away.

The barbershop vegan soap will be the only available release tomorrow.

Far from plain
