Thank you for the info. I found that in C&E UK site

I sampled the Indian Sandalwood and about to go buy it now. It smells heavenly after the re formulation. I am excited about the new line to be honest, I hope they pick up some followers now to compare results.

I'm curious to try the new scents, but I do like the Nomad scent, to me it's a classic scent like Tabac... never thought they'd discontinue it. Undecided

I'm going down the road this weekend and load up on Nomad refills and I'm interested in the Morrocon Myrrh. I have the Nomad and a vintage Mysore Sandlewood. Both lather great, hope that doesn't change.

The old ones are now £7. The good thing is the new scents aren't a change but rather an improvement.

I got some Moroccan Myrrh balm, and it is exactly the same as the Nomad, just relabeled.

I hope they also don't change the formula of the shaving soap, although I prefer the old presentation anyway.

Gents, I tried the West Indian Limes.
The scent is in my opinion great.
A warm, spicey maybe even woodsy scent, really good.

The balm is excellent, and so is the bath soap.

The shave soap is the third ever product I have ever binned.
After Erasmic stick and Monsavon.
I found it to be really useless as a shaving soap.

Could not get it to lather, it did not sustain at all, and thus no glide or protection whatsoever.

A major disappointment :-(

Well Gents, I was the guinea pig and you can all point your fingers and laugh.

I bought a puck of the NEW Indian Sandalwood soap a week ago at a local store (but resisted buying the wooden bowl because I had an assured feeling the soap was going to SUCK), and this new formula is just as BAD as the previous Sienna (with Sodium Palmate as the first ingredient). It does not lather, just big air soap bubbles.
Do NOT buy it, unless you are looking for an $11 bath soap.
What is wrong with these people?

It would be great if one of you gentlemen could follow up with a full ingredient list, I would love to compare it to my older formula Sandalwood and Sienna which both work great for me.

I am an expat, left it back home because it was useless for my purposes. Returned home wanting to give it another go, nope, left it behind again Sad sorry can't provide u with a list.

But as they said, it does produce lather and smells nice but as soon as it touches my face by the time pick up my blade the lather evaporates and my skin shows again. Very strange.

What's more strange is that I tried their Sandalwood Cream before buying the soap and it was GREAT. That's what made me buy the soap really, didn't expect them to perform different.

This is the new version to stay away from.

What really is annoying is that the Indian Sandalwood scent is great. Much better than the previous Sandalwood.

Very true, I rather enjoyed the new scent. Thinking of getting the cream after chucking the soap, since I tried it and saw that it was decent. But something feels guilty about buying similar product twice, it's like I am trying too hard lol
