I received this e-mail from Marie at Martin de Candre this morning:

"Hello,

Thank you for your message.
We hope to be ready to sell our first shaving soap perfumed with (Fougère) from next mid-April. We hope you will appreciate it !!....

Best wishes. Have a nice day,
Marie Amelie de Courcy
Customer management service"

I can't wait! I sent her a reply asking if the soap will be the same base formulation and how close the scent is to the bath soap.

Here is an email that I received from them in the morning as well regarding the scent. I am so not excited about it, I can't stand that medicinal scent the bath soap has. But hey, there's always valobra fougere for me. Biggrin


Hello,

Thank you for your message.
As many people are asking for the same perfume (Fougère) as in our bath soap, Fougère scented shaving-soap will be rather the same.

Best wishes. Have a nice day,

You may be right. I have a vague recollection that it turned out not to save any money.

Think that was the situation. By the time the "big" quantity got shipped from France, divided, and reshipped, there was no savings. Plus some people wanted to order extras which, if I recall, made it more affordable for them to order directly. But, don't mean to discourage!

Teiste, have you tried the Valobra fougere bath soap? I am going to guess that their new shave soap will smell like it (or perhaps their old, limited edition fougere shaving soap), and I have no idea what either of these smell like. I know some fougere smell like Brut, but, having sniffed Brut last week, am hoping for something more like the MdC fougere scent.
Thanks, John

I'm going to have to give this a try when it comes out. I've never tried the current Mdc but this scent seems more my speed.

I've got a general question for you guys. We know all of the guys on all the shaving forums are going to make a buy at about the same time. What's your individual strategy going to be, will you order as soon as we get the word, or will you lay back and let the fury subside and maybe even wait for some of the early reviews to show up before you make your move? How many pots and bowls do you think they'll sell? Hundreds maybe? More than a few hundred? Will you wait and hope to pick one up on the BST? My usual habit is to get blindsided, miss the whole worldwide sellout, and end up having to wait another lifetime for them to make some more. Yeah, that's my normal strategy. I'll put some English Fern aftershave in my little bowl of VDH glycerin soap and that'll probably be my backup plan.Cool

Gary, I can't say I'm much better on timing these things. Undecided

I think I have a sample of it.

She sent along a small soap called fougere.

I think it's a preview of it.

Are you sure that it's not the bath soap? Is it like a square or rectangle shape?

Yeah I got one if those when I placed an order a couple of years back. I love the smell of it and was disappointed when I ran out.
