2019 DFS LE - Eleven Soap & Aftershave Splash is now LIVE! Read more here!!

(This post was last modified: 07-17-2015, 01:01 AM by stroppinglad. Edit Reason: update )
My list changes but here you go, as of now:

HARD SOAPS:  Saponifico Varesino--any scent. Tabac.

SOFTISH SOAPS:  Le Pere Lucien. For me, this is perfect. And, in no particular order, Reef Point, Soap Commander, Stirling, Mike's Naturals, Tiki, Proraso--red white and green! 

CREAMS:  Art of Shaving sandalwood. I hate to admit it since AOS is owned by P&G, but there it is. Also Proraso in the tube (any of 'em); St. James of London. Used to love XPEC but, for a lot less $$$, I can get soap/cream just as good

- Dapper Dragon Cinnamon Bun. Amazing scent and performance, my every day soap.
- Mickey Lee The Kraken. Smells like a blueberry explosion to me. Love the whole Kraken theme.
- Cella. Such a wonderful sweet scent. Always a great shave.
- Maggard Orange Menthol. Perfect orange scent, but due to menthol I don't use it as much.

- Proraso Blue. A mix between a fresh bread and a barber shop. Super quick to lather, great in a pinch!
- Nivea Sensitive Cream Fresh scent, great price and performance.
- Geo F. Trumper Almond. Basically Cella in a cream.

I should have listed Stirling. Love their soap. Am eager to try Reef Point.

these interchange.. Scents are subjective as we know. But I've never had a "miss" with any of them. They all perform to a high level, and the artisans are great people to work with.
