Gents, just wanted to give a heads up to anyone that has been wanting to try this soap out, or is interested in a particular scent...it appears that all scents are now in stock at Italian Barber.

PC is notoriously hard to get a hold of, especially if one is after a particular scent as in some releases not all scents are made, and then whatever is released is in stock for a very short amount of time.

I have been wanting to try the Libanese for a while and finally got a chance to order it. Kudos to Joe for making this great soap more "available." Biggrin

Same...I have promised myself to not buy any more products until I've used up some. I'm really scooping up the soap these days Smile

...and I thought I cold make it until May without another soap, guess not, order placed. In my defense this wasn't really fair. The last time I got my hands on some I had to camp out on the Panna Crema website and I still missed out on the San Francesco. This is a top tier soap IMHO, easily makes my top 5 list of performers and the scents are unique. Marco's soaps are very much reminiscent of Barrister and Mann in the sense that both they use uncompromisingly high quality ingredients and their scent combinations are unusual.

I added a Namaste and a San Francesco to the cart.

Went into the bathroom and looked at my soaps.
Counted them and came up with;
- twenty 50-100% full soaps and creams, and
- five samples of soaps and creams

Sighed.

Went back and deleted the soaps from my cart.

I need a bigger brush.

At least I'm sort of 'proud' of showing a little bit of restrain Sad

Your a better man than I, my count is at 107 with 15 completely untouched not counting samples at all, and I only flinched slightly before hitting confirm. Thats why I bought the Chubby 3, needed something to eat soap....

Ok good...my den looks a little more reasonable now Tongue

I'm "only" at about 60+ but I'll probably be unloading about 20 or so on BST in the coming weeks. I can confidently say that none of my PC soaps will be sold however Biggrin

Well I received my order from IB yesterday which included Libanese and Namaste. I have been wanting to try Libanese for a quite a while now, and ordered Namaste as an afterthought. So I was pretty surprised to find out that I preferred the scent of Namaste over Libanese! The Libanese is still good, the scent is mild and smoky/woody. But the lemon/citrus scent of Namaste came in a little stronger and was a fresh and clean surprise that I wasn't expecting.

I shaved with Libanese last night, and it was a good reminder for me that I need to reach for my PC soaps more. The performance is phenomenal and the lather just explodes into luxurious goodness that provides everything you'd want and more for an incredible shave. All this followed by an excellent post shave feel, makes these soaps very hard to fault Biggrin.

This is definitely a very under rated soap and the namaste is absolutely one of my top if not top scented shaving soap. Just wished it was stronger
