By reading up I've found the most popular artisans to be Declaration Grooming, Wholly Kaw, A&E, Talbot, B&M, PAA and probably a handful I'm missing. Being fairly new to this so far I started with Mystic Waters Sensitive and TOBS Mr. Taylor's Cream. Just recently I've acquired A&E Kaizen & Stirling Executive Man. I like the scents of everything I got so far with Executive Man probably being my favorite. I see soooo many different scents out there and it can be overwhelming when I see a list of 10 scents for one soap and try to wrap my head around what it could smell like. So I'm turning to you fine folk for what your recommendations or thoughts on most popular scents and must try from any or all of the brands mentioned.

You might as well ask strangers to find you a wife. Scent is highly subjective, so.......................you're on your own.

BPMan makes a fair point - scents are personal - but it is hard not to like Seville. I’m sure people who don’t like it exist, but it has relatively broad appeal. It’s Will’s best selling scent year after year for a reason.

I totally understand that scents are subjective. Asking what the consensus is for the popular scents of each brand is more what I'm after. BPMan could have helped me out just as much without replying.

I didn't ask you to do anything for me. If you don't have anything helpful to add keep it moving. If I received no replies here I would have got the point. I received one helpful reply and then your failed attempt at a joke and unhelpful reply. I've also put this post out somewhere else and have received a bunch of helpful answers. Why even reply if you have nothing helpful to add? Gods forbid somebody new asks for suggestions.

My favorites:
Sir Henrys Sandalwood = Sir Henrys Sundries. This is a most awesome sandalwood scent and he offers 30 day money back.
Santal Auster = Declaration Grooming. This is a raw sandalwood scent I am wearing right now.
Windsor = DR Harris. Bright and lively.

Of the ones you mention, I'd just put in PAA Cavendish (pipe tobacco).

My favorite scents are all by WSP (Tobacco, Mahogany, Sandalwood), but I don't think their soap base is top-tier. The Tobacco cream is excellent but pricey.

Stone Cottage Suede de Kashmir, but wait for the new formula to come out.
