I should note that this is limited to the two that I've tried, Barbershop and Black Tie. I have no issues with the performance - SS soaps make a cushioning and slick lather. Unfortunately, these two scents give me a headache. I also found the scent of Black Tie to be much to strong but I enjoyed the Barbershop quite a bit.

I should also add that I have and enjoy a number of fragrances and this issue rarely occurs.

Anyone else have this experience with SS soaps?

I find them mildly scented but no headaches from the black tie.

Sense of smell varies a whole lot from person to person. I have a sample of Black Tie, and can hardly smell it at all. When it gets lathered, there is virtually no scent.

I've tried Black Tie and Baker Street. Excellent lather.
However, the scent of each is more concentrated than I care for. I sold one. The other went to the box in the basement.

I enjoy using Strop Shoppe soaps about 30% of the time. Although I find most of their scents on the light side, I also really enjoy them. The exceptions seem to be Teak Wood, Lemon Eucalyptus, and Russian Tea, which have a much stronger scent. I find Vivace and Black Tie to have the lightest scents. I generally prefer stronger scented soaps, but the lighter scented Strop Shoppe soaps have really grown on me, perhaps because I find that their lather is second to none.

their scents seem to be all over. I happen to have a nice strong Alpine Frost which i love, while others have said it has no scent. I have a Black Tie that is VERY strong, but when i ordered a second it was much weaker..... Baker Street and London Morning are both great great and are of medium scent, but smell VERY similar

I just ordered Teak Wood and Baker Street. If these scents don't work I'm afraid I'll have to give up on the line...unfortunate because the soaps are amazing performers!
