Thanks for any advice


Zaldun and Zanzibar are nothing like each other. Zaldun is Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Orange. Zanzibar is a more complex, bolder scent and although it isn't the same as Kasbah, I would say it is in that style
Thanks for the info!

Is Manuel’s Tobacco a pipe tobacco scent?

Never loved Tierra Humeda, but today I used my best Mountain.
I got issues with few pucks, and Manuel sent me free one for replacement ! Great artisan.

Pleased to know, I am only the one that don't like Tierra humeda !
My favourites are: Mountain, and Brisas de Oriente (?)

I add problems with the quality( turning very watery ), but Manuel exchanged them all.
He helped me finding a special brush too.
I didn't like the plastic tubs, but maybe now these changed ?
The after shave for me are too mentholated, I am in a very cold part of my country !

What else fragrances are available today ?
Happy new year all

Been using too much new stuff recently, that today I was missing the scent of Rosa Bourbon and I don't do night shave regularly. 

But I decided to shave anyway, Rosa Bourbon. Wow.

This shaves remind me why I love Manuels' soaps so much. Even with so many new base in 2017, Eufros is still, imo, one of the best soap base.

Can't wait for my Zaldun and Cronos  Biggrin.

Is Rosa Bourbon a straight rose or are there other scent notes?

I can imagine it must be very intense to garner such praise. Thank you, Luis.

For those who want to buy the new Cronos and Zanzibar soaps, allow me to throw in my review of both after having shaved with them....While both soaps perform better than any other soap I own and have used (including Mike's, Saponificio Varesino, etc), I would not repurchase the two new scents for different reasons. Mind you...it isn't that they are bad, I will use these soaps with pleasure...but I think they don't click with me like other Eufros scents I own or have tried. 

Zanzibar smells GREAT in the tub. Matter of fact, it smells exactly like German Zimtsterne (Christmas cookies) and it is the perfect soap for a winter day shave. Where I think this scent becomes challenging is after the shave...the scent, especially when paired with the balm is SO strong and lasting that putting an AS on after is almost impossible without creating a major clash. I put on Floris Santal after and that worked OK...but any other EdT in my wardrobe would not have worked. It is in the same family as Brisa Oriente, but much sweeter and cloying.

Cronos is a totally different animal...the scent does not linger nearly as long and strong as Zanzibar (therefore easier to pair with EdT later), but I find the soap even in the tub to smell very "green". Think Cucumber and freshly cut weeds and herbs. I personally don't really love this scent, but again...performance is absolutely out of this world.

To me, Manuel's masterpieces in terms of scent are Gea, Fougere, Brisa Oriente (more masculine than Zanzibar), and Tierra Humeda. Those soaps, I will buy until I die or Manuel stops selling them...whichever comes first Smile
