Does anyone have suggestions for a really good rosemary shaving soap or cream?

I know about Mike's Peppermint and Rosemary. Any others?

Le Pere Lucien Traditionell is a nice herbaceous scent with a garden mix of herbs and such. Some don't like it but I think it is heavenly and luckily I loved the lather, the lather loved my skin and I have no complaints from my nose. Some people found it to be too strong for their skin tolerance and I do know now that the maker Cyril adjusted some of the fragrance to remove some of the real components or essential oils.

Another great smelling soap is Pre de Provence. Love that rosemary smell! But...I couldn't ever get consistent lather so I could only enjoy it as shower soap. If I think of more, I will update you in this thread.

Thank you very much, Zac!


I have heard a lot about Pre de Provence, but I am unfamiliar with the scent of it. I might try that, as a thick, puffy lather is not of primary importance to me anyway.

I will look into the Le Pere Lucien, which sounds interesting.

[I now remember Boots shaving soap (UK) used to have some rosemary in the scent, I think. ]

If you can find it Strop Shoppe did make a Rosemary Mint soap.

Le savon des Volcans has one that I believe has rosemary. I have a sample but have not used it in a while. Not sure of any other rosemary scents, although I'm sure Mama Bears or Gingers Garden could do a custom soap if needed.

If you happen to like Cilantro you may want to check out Tiki Spice Islands which is mango cilantro- smells interesting and excellent performance, although not sure if its still in production.

Interesting I hadn’t thought of Pre de Provence as having a rosemary scent to it. Will have to given my puck a sniffy sniff tomorrow...

I hadn't either, Jesse. I hadn't seen any reference to rosemary being part of the scent for this soap. I think I will try this (Pre de Provence) next, as it has been on my radar for years, anyway.
