Cedar goes well with those overcast spring mornings that are easily confused with fall. It strikes me as the quintessential autumn scent, pairing just as easily with pungent chrysanthemums as with freshly cut kindling for the fireplace. For this soap, MT uses a cedar oil expressed from the deodar tree, which grows in the Himalaya. The scent is softer and sweeter than Virginian cedar oil (think pencil shavings) or Texas cedar oil (warm tar). The deodar cedar also has a camphoraceous note that's sort of apothecarian. I'm a sucker for fragrances that hover on the edge of medicinal. I can't keep my snout out of this jar.

Man, i gotta keep from reading your posts. My soap closet keeps growing.

Gotta try this one - sounds versatile.

I need to plant a few of those this year.

Lemongrass & Eucalyptus t. (Mike's Natural Soaps)

This is no cure for the common cold, but for me just the smell of the lemongrass and eucalyptus coming off the tub soothes a flu-ridden schnoz. I've been huffing this puck all day to clear my head. It really works. As a fragrance it's not particularly refined, but as a home remedy it fits the drift of Mike's soaps – simple, cheap, and very effective.

Thanks for the encouragement to keep writing these notes! The problem with this odd hobby of ours it that the actual shaving is over in 15 minutes. I'm certainly not trying to sell soap (as if any of us really needs to be persuaded to buy another tub  Wink ), but I do hope to help make everyone's 15 minutes more interesting and rewarding, and with luck give us all something to think about after the lather's been washed down the drain.
