Now that Irisch Moos is no longer gonna be sold I'm thinking of getting it. What exactly does it smell like? How does its scent compare to Speick and Tabac?

Really? Odd. IMO Irish Spring's scent is rather generic.

Technically, it's more of a block than stick, but Klar Kabinett gets my vote. It has a nice light rose scent. I don't normally like florals, but KK is good stuff.

I won't vote having only experienced Speick. I have absolutely no clue how to describe the scent, but it smells nice, if a bit strong.

Surprised that nobody has voted for Tabac yet. Speick must smell really great if you guys like its scent even more than Tabac.

I voted Speick since it seems more universally used and loved. Irisch Moos has a very green scent and the comparison to Irish Spring bar soap is not too far off but IM is much more refined. A good fragrance comparison is Paco Rabanne Pour Homme. A perfect layering if you like that scent.

I voted for Irisch Moos even over Speick. However, I have a vintage Dalli-Werke stick which smells absolutely tremendous. Unfortunately I cannot show a picture of it.

Palmolive and Wilkinson Sword are also made in Germany as I recall.

Speick is a very nice shaving stick.

I voted Speick because I happen to like the smell of Speick soaps and creams. I have never tried a TABAC stick, but if it smells anything like the soap, I would of voted for it. I really like the TABAC products that I have tried so for.

The Tabac shave sticks smell exactly the same as the refill pucks and the shave soap in the bowl.

Irisch Moos for me. It's the most intense smell of the sticks but if you like you will really like it.

If there was anyone that needed to make a soap puck, it's Speick. I get tired of grating their darn sticks.
