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.


Yes. I guess that's what the case has been with me too. Nonetheless, I enjoy the scent and my Shaves with it.

It was like cutting my heart out when he stopped producing this.. Best scent of any soap that I've ever tried!! If he ever produces it again I'd buy a 5 gallon bucket of it!!....No joke./..

Hi Scott, we're both still waiting, unfortunately.

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.

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?

I've never bought the balm, but I'm reliably informed a soap weighs 40g more, so yes, one of each is within the lower shipping rate.

Guys, the whole reason I was going to get the balm was to prolong the scent.  I usually use splashes and balms, not because I need skin healing/protection, but to enjoy the scent awhile longer.  Are these balm scents, Rosa in particular, long lasting or am I better just getting the soap and calling it a day?

Any guys with experience with the balms that can comment on this?  Thanks!

I always pay €4 extra and get expedited shipping . Roughly take total 7 days from Spain to NJ.
Manuel informed my incenso and ylang tallow shipped today.
Most likely I will get the package next Thursday.
