What soap scent do you think is the most neglected around these parts? A scent you love but doesn't get much airtime?

Mine is Barrister And Mann Vetiver/Heather/Clary Sage. I have two tubs in rotation, 1 at home and 1 in travel bag (I travel weekly) so I am never without it. As an aside, I am super stoked Will is making a Limited Edition Kyovu in the same scent.

So let's hear yours!

Trumper's Coconut cream.

I still haven't discovered anything remotely like it.

The new artisan soaps are great and fun to discover, but Trumper's Coconut in cream is the one that I'd stock up on before the zombies finally take over.

I would say that gets lots of airtime but maybe I am biased Smile

I also find it to be a unique coconut scent, the most similar to the actual fruit. I only wish it was a tad stronger, but apart from that it's one of my favorites as well.

To be fair, I haven't read much about the scent of the soap. All posts seem to be about performance. Huh

I'm currently really enjoying bay rum scented soap, even though I haven't been a big fan of it as an aftershave.

I find it to be an interesting and pleasant scent. Many talk about lavender and herbs, and, while that may be so, I find something "organic" about the smell - perhaps like sheep skin. Definitely something I have smelled before, but what it was is always just outside my grasp!

The Soap Opera Himalaya with shea butter and soy: this is a great soap both performance and scent wise, and cheap, but nobody ever talks about it anymore with all the neo-artisans shoving each other for counter space. not sure it's still in production.

AOS lemon: i like lemon.

Pre de Provence: i used to really like provence sante green tea, but the scent is too cloying for me now. this soap didn't make much of an impression on me initially, but it's fresh and clean, a great scent.

MWF for a soap, but overall I'd say TOBS Shaving Shop, that scent really grew on me.

I think if L'Occitane Cade soap had a stronger scent then this would have A LOT more chatter about it on the forums.

I also think the subtle yet fantastic scent of Institut Karite Shea Butter soap is simply superb. With big hitters like Tabac, I Coloniali, Cella, Arko etc. It is sometimes nice to take a time-out and appreciate a simple scent like IK!

Jabonman Wet Earth. A most mysterious scent. One of the soaps I spin the top off and take a whiff when I enter the den. Good stuff!!
