One of the best shaving soaps i've ever used. Really enjoyed using it because it reminded me of SMN!

Figured out pretty quickly that unfortunately for me, the aftershaves really aren't my thing. Very floral to my nose, so those will be traded or PIF'd in the future. Same goes for the Sweet Tobacco shave soap, just too floral for me. Some of the others are really great though, especially the Creme De Menthe, and I got that one purely out of curiosity. Nowhere as sweet as I was expecting, peppermint at the front with the Cocoa hitting next, but the spiciness in the background rounds everything out. The Orange Tea, and Dragon's Blood I think are going to be favorites as well.

Guess I've found out that I'm more into the fruitier, or spicy scents.

The Catie's Bubbles is dead on for the smell of a freshly opened box of Fruit Loops. Doesn't start that way on first whiff, but it settles in very fast to that scent. The LPV is one of those that it's really hard to pin down the profile, smells terrific though. Just hope the cinnamon in it doesn't give me any skin fits.

Mustafa, this was part of a small group buy on the Portuguese Forum, in which a member also purchased the Fern, and I took a whiff of it. I much prefer Dolomiti, it's a milder (but not mild) and earthier scent. My preference can also derive from the fact that, to my nose, the Fern smelled a lot like the original Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme fragrance, and it's a fragrance I used for quite some time, and are now tired of. Smile
