I offered up a nearly new jar of MdC for sale yesterday.  I represented it as Fougere despite the fact that the jar has a while label rather than a green label and there's no indication on the jar itself that it's Fougere. I sold it quickly, but the buyer backed out of the sale politely because of comments he read that stated that it must be "Unscented".

My nose says that it's Fougere - and I have owned MdC Fougere in the past, so I know what it smells like. I know it sounds screwy, but that's the situation.

As you an see from the pic, it has only been used about six times. So I am offering it for sale again at the same price - $53 including US shipping - but I want to find a buyer who will be happy regardless of whether it's Fougere or Unscented.

The bottom of the Jar, look under Ingredients . Last line of ingredients , You will see the Aroma " Fougere"

Please see the picture . That's the easiest way to identify the scent

Yes, that's absolutely right. This is an "Unscented" jar with a white label, not the green Fougere label.. Nonetheless, it's clearly not unscented - the scent is Fougere. I can only assume that it's an error on the manufacturer's part.

I have Fougere and scented and I've smelled unscented when I visited Old Town Shaving Company.
The unscented version of MdC still has a very aromatic smell which comes from the soaps base.

Yup the unscented technically has a light scent to it.

Okay, then I guess I have a jar of "Unscented" MdC which smells like Fougere.

Mdc is mdc in my opinion. Regardless of the scent it will still Produce the best lather

It's unscented, so the ingredients are the same except there will be NO Aroma listed.  

Unscented does not mean fragrance free, it just means nothing added.  I've owned all three and all three have scents but only the Original and Fougure have Aroma added.

I have an Unscented that smells like Fougere as well. I've had a few jars of each and know what to expect of the unscented and this clearly is not the soap base scent. Is it that unreasonable for there to have been an error with the labeling of the jars at MdC?

Is there a colour difference between the 3 soaps?

The labels on the jars are different colors not the soap itself.


sorry if I caused you any trouble OP I was just curious! Angel
