That's a mighty fine collection you have there. The only vintage soap in my den is missing from yours.....Tabac! By the way, what are the requirements for a soap to be considered vintage?

Thanks. I think everyone defines vintage differently. More me, generally it means that the soap is no longer made and has not been available retail for 5-6 years or longer.

You mustn have very creamy smooth BBS's.

Thank you. They all produce wonderful lather, rich and thick and fragrant. Weight lifter? Not for many years. If you're referring to the suitcases, I just lift them from a bedside table shelf to the bed surface.
