I know a lot of shops put out versions of bay rum soaps. Anyone who's sampled a few have a favorite?

Personally, I really like Saint Charles Shave's Bay Rum with a Twist.

How strong is the scent? I know some of the other RR/TFS soaps can be on the weaker side.

Ogallala just edges out RR Captain's Choice because of the stronger scent. Mike's & SRD Bay Rum are also very good. Conk's gets my vote as the worst in scent & performance.

After trying a few, I find Mystic Water's to be a very unique take on the original Bay Rum scent and it is my favourite.

I only have 2 Bay Rum soaps, but like them both a lot. The Ogalalla is my favorite because of the stronger scent. I remember another post that called this soap "catnip for shavers" and I agree. There is just something about it I love. The other soap is a newly acquired RR captains choice. The scent is the great CCBR, but for me, stronger is better so this is #2. The RR is easy for me to achieve a high performance lather with and I plan to keep it in my rotation.
Now Bay Rum is in my head. I'll have to use this tomorrow. Biggrin

TSD Bay Rum to me is the ultimate in that scent.

I enjoy two Bay Rum soaps a great deal, Barrister & Mann and Mystic Water. B&M is a nice, strong-scented soap but without clove, while Mystic Water is more subtle and a little hard to describe. I'm more into soaps than creams, but Al's Calypso is a dynamite bay rum scent, and he also has a matching ASB and an AS splash.

LASS also has a bay rum soap. I have a small sample that I have used once. Nice, but I am not a great bay rum fan and I have nothing to compare it to.
