I know I asked this before, but can you guys comment on the fougere scent.  I really want to get the v2 tallow.  Manuel told me that in a month or so he may have other scents, and I'm trying to decide to pull the trigger now or not.

I am quite bad at describing scent, but I will describe it as more earthy/dirty however at the same time refreshing. I quite sure I just butcher the scent  Biggrin .

Just hop over to the top three 2016 scent thread: http://shavenook.com/showthread.php?tid=45862

You will see Jabonman Fougere keep appearing...

It's good.

I've used many soaps over the years, many.
Holy s$&t!!
Kasbah is sublime, truly magnificent.
I've enjoyed Manuel's soaps for the last 5 years, JabonMan and now Eufros. They've always been superb, yet I'm amazed that they still get better with each evolutionary change.
Most importantly, in my opinion, what I truly respect in Manuel is this; humility and passion without ego. He is a true artisan, who focuses on his art, and lets the results speak to true connoisseurs, without the BS of social media nonsense and hype.
Well done!
BTW, I continue to honor, respect, and value all other artisans who exemplify these morals.

The thing is that now everyone knows about them soaps and more and more he has to let people know "I'm sold out at the moment " Wink
Ah well I have plenty for the next two years.

Received my soaps today Tobacco, Fougère and a sampler of Rosa Burbon. They all smell fantastic but the Fougère & Rosa Burbon IMHO are masterpiece, truly a great scents.

Also test lathered one the soaps and the lather quality was out of this world. I own many top performing soaps but this lather was special.

I'm extremely happy with my purchased I will buying more in the very near future. Smile

Good day.

Is anyone here familiar with or have the Citricos?  Is the scent lemon? lime? Or, a combination?  I would like to get the Rose Bourbon but is a little too expensive for me.

Thanks very much for any info.

Ed

Now I am intrigued. Is Kasbah a limited edition soap made for a forum? I can't find it in Manuel's current list?

If so, do you know if it will become a general release?

Kasbah was the Christmas 2016 LE soap for the Spanish Shavers group on FB. I believe all have now been sold, but an email to Manuel would give you a definite answer.

It is possible Manuel will bring a similar scented soap out for general release, however, it wouldn't be identical, in the same way that the current tallow Tobacco soap is not the same scent as the Christmas 2015 LE Tobacco soap.

Kasbah to me smells and looks like LPV from caties bubbles. Now that's just too me.

Wow, Kasbah. You made me really curious about this, Ravi. I'm very intrigued.

I too value those character traits, I suppose I should send Manuel an email to see what I can purchase.

Citricos is mostly lemon/litsea to my nose.  Might have a touch of lime in there as well, but overall it's very lemony.  Superb citrus scent, though!

Incensio is pure incense and a new scent in Manuel's line up, although he did make it in combination with lime, a few years back. I have it on the way.

Dama de Noche is floral - Cestrum Nocturnum, also called night blooming jasmine. It is fairly sweet.

David, do you know if the incense is part of the tallow line?

As far as I know the Kasbah, Fougere and latest Tobacco are it for the tallow soaps. Is that correct?
