Seems like nice cream and soap. Any word on how people like the scents and performance?

I couldn't tell if this is a production soap from a company or if it's artisan made.

Sorry for link to Italian forum, but my first tests on MT soaps samples is too long and not so easy to translate with my poor English.
Hope GTrans will help.

BTW, as costumer, as collector, as pharmacist ... I'm very impressed!!!

I have nothing to do with what PP said.

Meißner Tremonia are a European "artisan" soap maker. To avoid this much misused word, they are three guys from Dortmund, Germany, who make shaving and bath soaps in a copper vat. I mention this because many US based "artisan" products consist of $1.5/lb Chinese import soap flakes and cheap oils. Meißner Tremonia take their business seriously, and their base products comply with European purity laws. As in, "buy with confidence". They are also, if you are so inclined, "vegan".

Now for the products. You can read a review here (SRP) or, preferably, here (TOST, hi, Fram!) 

The scents are truly unique. (mod edit - content). Highest quality oils skilfully blended. Strong, but not overpowering. Refreshing, yet not lingering. 

The performance will give any high quality product (Alvarez Gomez, Castle Forbes, Esbjerg, Green Mountain Soap, Le Père Lucien, Savonnerie du bon Berger) a run for its money. 

To foreclose any of the usual replies: I have not vested interest in Meißner Tremonia, I did not receive "free samples" or any other form of bribe popular with US based "artisans", or anything else. I have tried their products, thoroughly I might add, and found them commendable.

Have fun,
Robin

I do not think that most American artisan soap makers as of today are using chinese soap flakes as a base
 Meißner has received  flack for poor lathering and not appealing scents in 11/ 2014, ongoing to 02/ 2015 on this board
http://www.gut-rasiert.de/forum/index.ph...500.0.html
They have adapted their soap base at the end of 2014;and some have reported good results with the new formula.
Clearly here a product is marketed with a lot of effort.

With elitism coming along, the soap  said to be favoured by professional users, whatever that is.
and a  lack of demonstration, I´d say Hmm
The jury is out on that soap.

Since I am in Berlin for a few months I guess it's only reasonable to pick up a tub before I head back to America  Biggrin . 

For those who have tried them, what's your favorite scent?

Very interesting - sounds like a tried/true heritage and high quality performance/scents/packaging. I enjoy lime scents (and am of German heritage) so I will follow this until a US distributor is arranged.

There were some issues on the first version of the soaps.  Seems like they have fixed the issue in v2.0. Would like to try them.  The last time I checked their site, shipping to US was not listed.

Two thumbs up for the packaging in violet glass.

This looks like a soap I want to test.
Is there any that have tried it? Is it worth the money?
