I really enjoyed me first time using Strop Shoppe and WSO (Wet Shave Obsession) and I was wondering what you folks who like these soaps recommend from these soap makers next? I have 'The Naud' from WSO and Black Tie and Russian Tea from Strop Shoppe.

Strop Shoppe Alpine Frost is amazing!

From WSO, the Zaro scent is one of my favorites as well.

Recommendations on WSO, based on my personal experience:

1. Zaro (fougere)
2. Vanillawood
3. Coconut Lime
4. Cucumber Melon

Others have been praising Bill the Barber and Signature also.

Enjoy. Biggrin

I received WSO Zaro earlier this week and I am quite enjoying the scent. It reminds me of QCS Fougere but more subtle and slightly more refined.

I have Teak Wood from Strop Shoppe and I love it. I honestly feel the need to reach for it everyday and have to force myself to use other soaps. It quickly shot up to the top soap in my rotation.

It does not smell like Teak Wood so don't judge the scent by the name. It is more of a sweeter woody scent to my nose.

does the Zaro smell at all like English Fern?

Zaro is less barber shoppish if you will than English Fern. It is a more upscale type fougere scent with different middle notes. Some might consider Zaro somewhere between a classic fougere and an aromatic fougere, while English Fern in my opinion is a classic fougere example.

From WSO, Bill the Barber. I like it so much I ordered two extra pucks. Believe it or not, this just might replace my MWF and i Coloniali Mango.

Yes it really does smell that good.

You have to try Baker Street from Strop Shoppe, the one that they are most famous for and the one that got them off the ground. I also agree with the above recommendation for Teak Wood.

Baker Street, no doubt! But Alpine Frost and Teak Wood are outstanding as well!
