only have one PAA soap
Deja Fougere in the big tin
Love it. Pineapple fern smell

Thinking of buying another. Don't mind the $10 postage to UK if the product is good

Question is what one

Thinking either

Cad
The Beach
Aloha Smackdown
Gondolier

I like robust strong scents and looking for one different from the Deja Fougere

If you could pick one what one would you go for?

You cannot go wrong with Gondolier and CAD is a great old fashioned shaving cream scent, but for the uniqueness I would try The Beach , the stuff is excellent and so unusual, the deo is excellent as well. It just smells of all the pleasant smells of the beach, salt water, sun cream , sand , it really is amazing how they have captured it. I haven't tried the Aloha Smackdown but the rest are all winners, you can't really go wrong. I had the Deja Fougere soap ( you enquired about buying the splash on TSR ) and splash and from the description it ticked all the boxes for me but it was just a bit too flowery for me. Although the Aloha Smackdown won't be the same it has pineapple in it as well. Gondolier is my favourite of all those scents but I would't say it is robust, subtle perfection I'd say.

The Beach sounds Interesting

I haven't tried the others, but I'm also a big fan of The Beach.  I really wish they would start doing samples...

I like the coconut one, just the plain coconut one.I dislike the PPA packaging. I think not making the labels water proof is stupid, the bottom ingrediants is already starting to come off.

The Beach is unique and one of my favorites.

CAD is a nice take on Barbershop, and Gondolier is also very nice. But those are both similar to scents you'll find elsewhere.

Deja Fougere is also a favorite of mine... I'd say go for the Beach.

Speakeasy is awesome, its hard for me to describe I would say clean, slight fruit note, maybe a vetiver or amber note...I made the recommendation that it should be a deodorant as well I would by that for sure.  You can't go wrong with CaD its a very masculine/barbershop scent, it reminds me of going to the old time barber shops as a kid.

The Beach to me smells like you just put on your sunscreen and are about to hit the beach (IMO). It is a fantastic interpretation of the scent. That being said I quite enjoy of both CaD and Gondolier.

Speakeasy smells like Dior Fahrenheit to me.

I'm going to take a step away from the masses with this one, I know, but my favourite PAA scent is Dapper Doc (named for famous gunslinger Doc Holliday). It is a strong Lilac scent which, believe it or not, I find well balanced and very masculine. It pairs perfectly with Swiss Pitralon. It makes your summer morning shaves sublime.
