Any one try this new limited edition 1887 Strop Shoppe Soap yet? It has tallow and lanolin with a woodsy, spicy, and tobacco scent. It's only a limited run though so I'm not sure how long they are going to have it. I've been impressed with her other soaps so I'm thinking this one might be worth a look.

The Strop Shoppe. Great soap, odd name when you consider they don't sell any strops.

I just pulled the trigger on it. I've been wanting to try Strop Shoppe and the scent sounds like something i'd like.

1887 just arrived and have it on deck for tomorrow AM. Scent is very manly cologne like to me, not typically something I like in my shave soaps but I can see this growing on me. I don't know that I think "woodsy, spicy, and tobacco" but I'm not the best with scents. We'll see how it opens up when lathered.

I'm taking off early for the Easter weekend so won't have feedback right away.

EDIT: Used it this morning. The only soap that I have that creates such a great lather this easy is MdC. It says to swirl a wet brush on the soap for 20 seconds; I did 45 seconds as I hate to run out of Lather. I had more lather than needed and will try 30-35 seconds next time.

Nice slick protective lather on par with Mikes (though lather is made much easier). Residual slickness is also extremely good. This version has Lanolin and it left my face moisturized and feeling GREAT! I don't know how the other version without lanolin do here........... The website was running a good sale on the Special additions, I thought i'd use the soap this morning and if I liked it i'd order some more other scents. But, wouldn't ya know the sale is no longer on this morning, so I guess I will not.

The scent though is Very cologne like to me and i'm not sure I'm sold on it but will continue to use for now purely based on performance.
