I know the Panna Crema soaps go back on sale tomorrow. In the past two weeks I have had the pleasure of using Namaste and I love the PC performance and scent. I am a huge fan of Vetiver scents. Got hooked initially on Salters and recently used Mike's but was not crazy about the lather.

So, has anyone used the Panna Crema Vetiver that could talk about the scent? If I decide not to pay the shipping, can anyone recommend a good Vetiver scented soap other than Mike's. NOt looking for a cream, but a soap or croap.

...and finally, does Razorock have a pure Vet scented soap?

I may have been a little harsh on Mikes. I liked it, just didn't love itas much as my top soaps. PC I loved and would love to know more about their Vetiver.

Mike's Vetiver is great stuff! The purest Vetiver scent I've ever smelled, with great performance. I wouldn't be without this one.

Pana Crema makes a nice Vetiver, but nothing compares to Mike's.

Like Mike's on Facebook and you get regular updates as he replenishes stock. This is by far the best way to stay on top of his stock.

Last time I bought PannaCrema it came in the small containers (Namaste). Once you get the lather down it's great, but haven't tried the Vetiver, sorry. Really wish they could find a NA retailer, but I realize they are too small to be able to meet that kind of volume, but I bet they'd blow up if they could...

Thanks! I don't use facebook anymore in my effort to disconnect. Wink I'll keep an eye on his site and the BST. I'd like to try his Lavender too.

On another note, does Razorock have a Vetiver offering?

IMHO Mike's vetiver scent is far superior to PC. Bonus. The wide tin is far nicer to use than the undersized plastic jar PCUses.

FYI, Panna now uses wider plastic tubs.

I missed the sale yesterday! Used my namaste this morning and I love this soap.

Kicking myself for not ordering.

Hi all,
I use PC a lot. I live in the NW USA and the scent reminds me of a fall morning. Smell the mosses , leaves, etc. of a good morning walk. Not heavy. I haven't tried Mike's version but I bet it's good too as I have soap from him too. Me I just love the luxurious shave I get from all the PC's I use. Enjoy !!

Yes, I do need to get my hands on more PC soaps. Specifically the Vetiver and libanon.

Well, I answered my own question. Was able to land some PC Vetiver in a trade and I'm sure it performs wonderfully, but on first sniff, I don't get any Vetiver. It smells like a plain, unscented soap to me with maybe a slight undertone of wood. Pleasant, but not Vetiver.

I may infuse it with some Vetiver EO that I have or just return to Mike's.
