I will consider taking a Simpson's brush (not a shedder and with original box) in partial trade for the soap. I have several Simpson's brushes, so I'm going to be a little selective about what I take!

The time has come for me to start getting rational about hoarding vs. keeping what I've come to enjoy using in my shaving routine. I've decided that MdC is my daily "go-to" shaving soap, so I'm going to start disbursing the 40 or so other shave soaps I've accumulated.

Here is my mini-collection of an almost-new Houbigant Fougere Royale Shave Soap, Houbigant Fougere Royale Talc, a̶n̶d̶ ̶t̶w̶o̶ ̶[̶b̶]̶e̶m̶p̶t̶y̶[̶/̶b̶]̶ ̶H̶o̶u̶b̶i̶g̶a̶n̶t̶ ̶F̶o̶u̶g̶e̶r̶e̶ ̶R̶o̶y̶a̶l̶e̶ ̶w̶o̶o̶d̶e̶n̶ ̶s̶h̶a̶v̶e̶ ̶b̶o̶w̶l̶s̶.̶The empty bowls are sold.

The soap is still fragrant. I know it's been used at least once or twice (once by me), but I'm not the original owner. Form your own opinion from the pictures. The bowl and lid are in excellent condition.

The talc is almost full - 90%? 95%? I can't tell for sure, but I'd guess it's about 95%.

The two additional bowls are empty. Bowls and their lids are in excellent condition.

The entire lot is for sale for $̶1̶9̶0̶ $165.00, PayPal and U.S. shipping. I'll ship outside the U.S., but the buyer will have to reimburse me for the additional cost.

I'm not too excited about breaking the lot up, but, if I did, the pricing would be:
Soap: $155
Talc: $20
Empty Bowls: $15.00 [b]EACH
SOLD

I read about this soap.. even this specific tub - I believe - a few times in different years from different owners... Certainly a rarity for the collector.. not for use ... unless you use it just once which seems a few have done...

GLWTS!
