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

Yes it is.

Matt, in addition to the three you've listed, Manuel has now added three more to the tallow line - Ylang-Ylang, Dama de Noche (both the same scents as in the veggie line) and Incensio.

There's a registered parcel waiting for me at the post office, likely the Jabonman I ordered last month (the only info I could glean from the postal notice seems to indicate "Spain"). Is signing for these things SOP?

I hear such great things about the tallow versions, but I also hear great things about the scent of Rosa. Which should I  choose for my first soap?

Hi David, I've been waiting for some new soaps to be in tallow.  Can you tell me what these scents smell like?  And are they V2?

Thanks in advance

The Dama de Noche is a lovely floral scent from a flower by the same name in Andalusia, Spain.
Incensio, from what I have heard, is a very unique incense-based scent.

I hope someone who has tried the last one can provide more detail. Shy

The Ylang Ylang Patchouli Laranja (orange) should be his regular one; one of the nicest scent I have tried.

Thanks Celestino!  The first two sound very good to me.  I'm going to email Manuel.

I have Ylang Ylang and I am in love with the scent specially while lathering. Post shave was top notch anyways and I guess with his new tallow formula Manuel has just raised the bar here.

I realise that Manuel have different scent profile of ylang ylang, is all in fact the same? I see some with myrrh, some with jasmine, some with orange.

As above. This is the first time Manuel has made a sole incense soap, so unable to further comment until I receive, hopefully end of week.

Yes, Ylang-Ylang has varied over the years. Undoubtedly, the best was in 2011 with patchouli and orange, however, one oil became unavailable and ever since, Manuel has played with the profile.

And, yes.....all tallow soaps are now being made in the V2 formulation.

Thank you on clarifying on the Ylang Ylang. Since you did say that:

1) The current Tallow Ylang Ylang is made of patchouli and orange
2) In your opinion the best was patchouli and orange.

Does that mean Manuel have finally found a similar replacement to the essential oil?

I do recall I emailed Manuel few weeks ago and he did say his current Tallow Ylang Ylang Myrrh and patchouli, can you clarify that?

I haven't tried the current Ylang-Ylang;all three new tallows are en route. I didn't detect any orange in the veggie soap I tried a couple of years back.

You're going to want to buy two soaps as that makes alot more sense due to shipping costs.  I would definitely pick up the Rosa Bourbon as well as whichever one of the Tallow scents sound best to you.

Good call. Shipping is costly but spread over two soaps makes it more reasonable. Manuel's Rosa Bourbon is lovely.

Well, I was thinking about picking up the matching balm for whatever soap I go with.  I was thinking that would put me at the weight limit.  Is that not correct?

Manuel has just confirmed that the current Ylang-Ylang also contains myrrh, patchouli and jasmine. It does not contain orange.

Thank you. Looks like I will have a skip for now, already have the scent for the premium non tallow.

Hi, Do you get orange in your non tallow? I don't.

I don't, I think mine was Ylang Ylang, Myrrh and Jasmine at the point of purchasing. Though I always wanted to try the Ylang Ylang Patchouli and Orange.

Manuel stopped adding orange to the Ylang-Ylang soap around 2013/14, anything more recent most definitely hasn't got it.
