I received 4 pucks of shave soap from Stirling yesterday along with a bath bar and a sample of his up and coming Vetiver AS with witch hazel and aloe vera.

I have more than 50 shave soaps and sticks, more than 50 creams and find Stirling to surpass all other soaps and creams for richness and denseness of lather, moisturizing and soothing comfort during the shave. The Scots Pine Sheep shave soap has the heavy mutton fat smell once you uncover the plastic but doesn't linger and the scent does not linger on your face.

The Vetiver AS with witch hazel and aloe vera is a very comforting finish to a shave. I love vetiver and especially when it is not covered up by other sweet scents. The AS looks milky but flows like any other AS. It feels really great and leaves a nice mild vetiver scent.

Stirling is a magnificent performer. I understand there were some issues with the early iterations of Rod's soap, but he certainly has it dialed in now.

I was back with the Margaritas in the Arctic this morning. Great shave, great scent, and great menthol blast. It is time to try some other scents.

I am glad that you found a Great Soap.

So are you going to be getting rid of your excess?Biggrin

I will be happy to take as many soaps/creams that you would need to get rid of to get you down to just one soap.

I'm afraid I'm a soap and cream hoarder. I super lather and mix two soaps or a soap and cream oftentimes.

I just re-ordered my MITA (Margaritas in the Arctic) and also ordered a puck of Scots Pine too. Rod has a 50% off sale on some of his bath soaps so I HAD to order a couple. I got bars of Pig Trail and Ozark Mountain. As usual, Rod is great to deal with...........

Yesterday(Monday), I got the order I placed with Rod on Friday!!
I ordered the Scots Pine Sheep and Margaritas in the Arctic shave soaps and bars of the Pig Trail and Ozark Mountain bath soaps. Rod also included 2 vary generous sample pucks of Coniferous and Tea Tree shave soaps! Thanks Rod!

I shaved with the Scots Pine this morning. Like the MITA I have been using, the Scots Pine whipped up a great slick and cushioning lather....even in my ROCK HARD water here is south Texas. The scent is nice and fresh but not overpowering. Very nice nick and burn free shave!

Hmmm...I didn't get that at all from Stirling's soaps...I got Honeysuckle and while it was a nice scent I couldn't get it to lather for beans. Maybe it was a different formulation, but I've been afraid to get more since that first experience.

It's nice to see that his soaps are performing well for you!

The Honeysuckle was Gen 2, which was basically a glorified hand soap. The new stuff is technically the 6th generation of soap and in no way resembles the early stuff. I'm really sorry about that early stuff. If you do decide to make another order, just shoot me a message and I can work with you on a discount to make up for the earlier order.

Stirling shaving soaps are the best I've used. SHARP DRESSED MAN and GLASTONBURY are my two favorite scents, but I like all the samples that I've tried. Along with my order I received samples of the tallow bath soaps and they're wonderful too. The Scots Pine sheep shaving soap is very fine soap. Smelled cold, it has a slight whiff of animal, but that quickly disappears when you begin to lather. As smooth as every other shaving soap of theirs I've tried.
I know I will always be interested in trying different soaps and creams but truthfully, if I had to choose one brand for the rest of my life, it would be Stirling. Now if they would only offer shaving sticks I'd be in tallow lather heaven.
