Title pretty much explains it. Please list your top 10 or less if you wish, soaps & creams.  These would be your absolute favorite soaps to use, your 'Go To Soaps'  due to a combination of performance & scent or whatever reason you have. I was hoping we could keep them specific as in not just listing a brand or particular artisan but the specific scent as well to see which soaps seem to be liked by many.

I'll go ahead and start it off, in no particular order...

Nuavia Rossa
Czech & Speake #88
Phoenix & Beau -  Spitfire
Shannon's Soap -  Woodlands
CRSW Oliva - Colonia Mediterrania
CRSW -  Juniper
Eufros Premium Select - Fougere
L&L - Trismegistus
Santa Maria Novella V.3
Bufflehead - Fletcher
The GroomingDept - Angel
Sapone di Paolo - Bosco

LOL, OK so I cheated and put 12 and I really want to add Wickham 1912 Magnum hmmm, I think I just did! Man what a great time to be a wet shaver!

Just way too many because I’ll always end up leaving out something.  Here are a few:

Desmond’s Barrow Lemon Lavender
Desmond’s Barrow Joie de Vetiver
Desmond's Barrow Patchouli Spritz
Barrister & Mann Chesire
Barrister & Mann Cologne Russe
Barrister & Mann Seville
Stirling Soap Co. Peach
Stirling Soap Co. Baker Street
Grooming Dept Kölnisch
Chiseled Face Sherlock
Sudsy Soapery Sandalwood & Myrrh
I Coloniali Mango (no longer being produced)
Roger & Gallet L’Homme (vintage and no longer available)

There are so many more that I cannot think of at the moment, and that’s not to mention razors, shaving brushes, aftershaves, and eau de toilettes.  I cannot agree more; this is a fantastic time to be a wet shaver. Big Grin

I agree with Solstice, I received a sample through a trade and it's really great

I'm. Looking at purchasing some more Wholly Kaw as well, a few others I'm looking at getting more of are Wickham 1912 and The GroomingDept

Ya I only had a sample too, but it's on my list of soaps to get. Because of that I'm also on a bit of a mission to find a good sage scented soap.

I like this question as it allows some insight beyond our favourite performers delving into our scent preferences.  My bay rum quest lead me to Will and so my list has become a bit lopsided.  Not for lack of trying the competition tho but 10 severely limits my full collection.  Big Grin

My top 10, in order:

  • B&M - Bay Rum
  • B&M - Lavanille
  • Mickey Lee Soapworks – Grand Havana
  • Henri et Victoria – Cognac and Cuban Cigars
  • B&M - Fougere Aromatique
  • Eufros - Sandalwood
  • B&M - Fougere Gothique
  • B&M - Fougere Imperiale
  • B&M - Baudelaire
  • B&M - Cheshire
