After reading the great reviews, I picked up two tubs of this soap. Mountain and Tierra Humeda. This, for me, is another fantastic artisan soap plus Manuel is great with which to deal. The Mountain is a great scent (reminds me of Olympic National Park - a clear, clean air scent with overtones of evergreens and wild flowers), slick comfortable lather. Lathers easily. Almost instant rich lather. Good moisturizing. The Tierra Humeda (Wet Earth) has the same attributes. However, a most unusual scent which is hard to describe. A most musky, earthy scent - not like any other soap I have ever smelled (reminds me of the Hoh Rain Forest - rainy, moist earth, fallen trees, moss). These soaps are tailor made for face lathering with the Barbear Classico brushes. I almost did not make the purchase due to the price w/shipping but am very happy I did. I am enjoying wonderful shaves. Highly recommended and well worth the cost.

I agree. JabonMan is a quality soap that I will always keep in my rotation. I'm glad that you're enjoying it.

These are the two scents that I would love to try but haven't yet gotten it. I've had many of Manuel's other scents but really want to try these.

Glad to hear someone other than me likes the Tierra Humeda scent. It is most unique and intriguing and off of the beaten path. I love to face lather with this soap using my BCs. Do you have any other of these soaps? Recommendations?

JabonMan is my favorite modern soap. Period. Pen's tallow is my favorite of all, but sadly no longer made. MAnuel is awesome to work with and he is highly recommended.

I only recently took possession of Wet Earth and Sierra. Really adore the scent of the latter, reminds me of hiking in Yosemite. This is a heavy weight in the performance category. One of the top soaps in my collection.

Thanks for all of the replies.

Has anyone tried the Nail Laurel Cedar? I received a sample; it smells great. Manuel said he does not plan to make more because it is a slow seller.

Also, I know it is kind of subjective, but can someone tell me what the Eastern Breeze smells like?

Thanks much....

Ed, I'm glad to hear you're enjoying the JabonMan soaps. Tierra Humeda and Mountain are incredible scents, as are most of Manuel's selections. They lather like a dream and provide an incredible shave.
