I enjoy sweeter scents, do not like cologne type scents and usually steer towards citrus soaps but a cola scented soap sounds pretty interesting to me. I imagine they are citrusy but have some darker notes of caramel and vanilla.

It looks like the current cola scented options are:
  • Wm. Neumann & Co. Old-Fashioned Soda (cream and soap)
  • Wickham Super Smooth Club Cola
Are there any other cola scented soaps out there? Does anyone recommend one over the other? I appreciate any information.

Wickham Club Cola is one of my favorite scents, although some feel that it's just a bay rum scent. To me, it's like the old fashioned cola that I drank as a kid in the 50's.

Are you sure you're referring to the current version of Club Cola, which was initially labeled Sweet Citrus? To my nose it smells nothing like Bay Rum, unlike Spice Trade.

Sounds like Club Cola is the one to try! Jabonman is on my "to try" list and it's great to get an idea of which scent to try.

Rui is actually spot on, I had forgotten all about Jabonman's Lima Canela! From all the soaps I've tried, this is the one that more closely resembles the Cola scent - if that's specifically what you're looking for, I'd definitely advise this one over Wickham's Club Cola. Performance-wise, they're both top notch soaps.

I too noticed there there are a few "cola" types popping up on vendor sites. While I wont be buying any of them I remember when Rod sent me a puck to test for him, before he named it. I responded to him that I would name it Root Beer. He responded saying he had already named it Ben Franklin. After finishing off the puck I still believe it smells like Root Beer, I do notice that on dry down you can pick up the spices and a touch of cloves. (not unlike that of sarsaparilla or ginger)

Wickham Club Cola is a citrus scent imo. Smells exactly like Mountain Dew to me and nothing like Coca Cola.

I've used an older version of Wickham Club Cola and a newer version sold at Bull Goose Huntlee Super Smooth Club Cola. The original smelled a lot more like cola to me. The current one I find a very pleasant citrus with some clove type spiciness, but very mild.

I think Wickham Club Cola is one of the best scented soaps i've ever bought. I don't think it smells like coca cola at all. But more in the direction of any lemon lime soda like Sierra Mist or Sprite. Won't be disappointed if you purchased this soap.

FYI - While stocks last, Darron has ceased production of Super Smooth, although Phil still has stock: http://bullgooseshaving.com/huntlee-supe...cola-160g/
