I just received a La Toja shave stick in a trade and really like the scent. I was trying to place it, because it was a familiar scent but stronger than I recall. Then I realized, it was similar to Van Der Hagen glycerin, which is a very, very subtle knockoff of Grey Flannel. La Toja definitely reminds me of that, and a bit stronger.

Their Classic Cream is the same scent as the stick. So are their two aftershaves. The sensitive cream smells nothing like it though.

I love the scent of La Toja but never cared for the scent of VDH even though its fairly subtle and I don't remember Grey Flannel.
Both are nice soaps.

I got my first La Toja stick today. I can't quite place what I think it smells like -- seemed very subtle to me. It kind of reminded me of the ocean or the beach smell.

As trite as this may sound, La Toja just smells like soap to me. That goes for the stick form, as well as the much missed Manantiales version. I liked it very much.

That's what I get out of it. Rather plain.

I really like the La Toja Stick. I found the La Toja Cream on sale for $6.99/150ml tube and decided to try it. It is one of the best creams I have used. It lathers easily and produces a nice thick lather that provides great glide.

Smells soapy to me as well, in a nice way. It's an excellent performer and my typical travel shave stick because of the container.
