Gentlemen, we have 7-day sets of razors, straight and double edge razors. Why not 7-day sets of soaps and creams respectively. Today I don't feel like doing any work, so I might as well make myself useful. This list is by no means the essential, for after all, you can get by with one soap or one cream. But then what's the fun in that? So here is my list in order of preference.


1. Martin de Candre
2. Czech & Speake
3. Institute Karite
4. Joris
5. Mitchell's Wool Fat
6. D.R. Harris
7. Tabac


1. Xpec original
2. Castle Forbes
3. Santa Maria Novella
4. Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet
5. Institute Karite
6. Trumper
7. Edwin Jagger

So there you have it, my 7-day list of soaps and creams respectively. Gentlemen, if you have nothing else to do, please list yours. If you have a 3-day set, or 4-day set, that will work, but please no more than a 7-day set. Also, in a list of preference. All this if you don't feel like doing any work. Thanks.

Mine is a mixed list, but here's my planned 7-day rotation for after I finish up my Prosaso white tub that I've been working on. These are all items currently in my Den waiting patiently for their chance to shine.
I think this also belongs in the "You know you're a wetshaver..." thread since I actually have been planning it out.

Monday - Cella
Tuesday - Tabac
Wednesday - Barrister & Mann Cheshire
Thursday - TOBS Jermyn St.
Friday - Mike's Barbershop
Saturday - Speick cream
Sunday - AoS Sandalwood

No seven day set for me, it's more like a 120 day set. Blush

Obie, I don't really rotate - instead it's more a "mood" process, but your soap list is very close to my primary set. Maybe I can find the discipline to stick to an actual rotation. Naaaah... Biggrin


1. Martin de Candre
2. Czech & Speake
3. Institute Karite
4. Joris (a relatively new find for me)
5. Valobra
6. D.R. Harris
7. Tabac or Klar Kabinett

I don't have a seven day set per se. At the moment I am trying to use up a couple creams so they are getting used a LOT. As my lot thins out ( 20 years from now probably) I think I will be down to a rotation of:

MdC Classic / Lavender and the Fern until that runs out
Scottish Fine Male Grooming (Lavender base as well)
I Coloniali
Mike's Natural Hungarian Lavender
If Valobra comes out with a Lavender or Fern hard soap with bowl, that will get added
One more of something for good measure (Lavender as well)
P.160 until I am out

MdC though remains my "go to" soap. Nothing like it out there.

Right now I am primarily using TOBS Eaton College as it's a 75ml tube so should go fairly quickly. Then one of these Proraso tubes needs to get finished.

MNS Unscented
MB Mandarin Ice

I'm currently doing a 15 shave per product 4 product rotation of

MdC scented
DR Harris Arlington soft soap (cream hardened)
AK 1869
AOS lavender tallow

I use each for 15 straight shaves and then rotate to next. I'm going to keep that rotation until I kill each one. When I do I'll replace with another product that will receive the same treatment.

If I were to have a 7 day rotation though it'd look like this:

Trumper Coco tallow
Pens EF tallow
AOS sandalwood tallow
C&S 88
