so I placed my first order with Manuel. I went conservative and ordered just the ylang-ylang/patchouli/orange soap and matching aftershave balm. There are so many I'd like to try...what are some of your favorite scents from Manuel?

This translates to "wet earth"? Is it vetiver based?

He has quite a few lovely scents! I don't think I have a favourite, but his Sandalo that he had was amazing!

Ylang Ylang-Pachuli-Naranja was the first JabonMan soap I ever bought, some three years ago. It is my absolute favourite, despite some changes over time, due to EU regulations, I believe.

Tierra Humeda is excellent, as is Rosas, Violetas, Lima-Incienso, Brisa de Oriente, Palo de Rosa Musk.

To tell the truth, I have yet to come across a scent of Manuel's that I don't like.

I personally found that Tierra Humeda smelled like Peanut Butter. Not a bad scent, just not what I was expecting.

I personally like Sierra and Mountain, Mountain being the one I like more. It smells like a freshly opened bag of skittles!

Ylang Ylang Pachuli Naranja is my current favorite followed by Citrus. Didn't care for any of the other available scents so those are the 2 I would recommend.

Tierra Humeda is not for the faint at heart. I can't personally recommend that one to just anybody. To say it's a polarizing scent is an understatement..

Gotta agree...plus amazing lather and shaving comfort. The Eastern Breeze runs a close second...a wonderful, complex, soothing scent.

I believe I've tried all of Manuel's scents, and Sandalo is most likely my all time favorite. It was absolutely stunning! It's a real shame he's no longer able to make it.
I also adore Violetas, Wet Earth and Citrus, and pretty much enjoy every other scent, with the exception of his floral scents, which is a genre I simply don't usually care for.

Manuel has some fantastic fragrances.
But my favorites are:

Violetas
Brisa de Oriente
Tierra Humeda
Rosas

Rosas is one of the best rose-fragrance-soap for me. Brisa was my very first soap from Manuel, I love it.

Amazing to me also. The thing with Manuel's soaps is that they want me to "sniff again". He certainly knows how to blend the scents...they are not your run-of-the-mill big-box scents. I have Roses and Honeysuckle on the way and a looking forward to them greatly.

My most used ones are the Brisa de Oriente and Lima e Incienso. I really like the smell of mountain but the performance isn't as favorable. I plan on getting the Violet and Lavender soap on my next order.
