We have some excellent news to report. Saponificio Varesino has agreed to make a Limited Edition shave soap for the Shave Nook. The soap will be a 150g round cut soap with the TSN logo stamped into the soap and presented in aluminum tins. We have tested several scents and have selected one that we believe will be well received. We are calling it No. 42 as we believe it holds all the answers you are seeking. Biggrin  The scent profile is complex but includes a top note that is citrusy and slightly balsamic, a woody base and an aromatic body that has hints of lavender.

The base formula of the soap will be the same winning formula Saponoficio Varesino uses with all their shave soaps but we are looking to add an additional ingredient or two and want to get your feedback. Which ingredient or ingredients would you like to see added? You can select up to 2 ingredients.

We hope to have the soap ready sometime this summer.

I know Saponificio Varesino make only vegan products. I purchased the Felce Aromatica and have used it a couple of times. But I found that vegan products tend to burn my skin. It sucks because I did enjoy using it.  But if they ever made a product with Tallow in it I would be first in line. 

Oops totally did not see the options on the top. Thanks!

I have been on a self imposed software buying hiatus,  that is now in jeopardy!  Thanks TSN mods for getting this put together!

This sounds great Phil! May we have a bit more information regarding the properties of the choices? For instance, does Mango Oil promote better protection; does Cocoa Butter increase glide? I could use some feedback.  Blush I can't wait for summer.  Biggrin

For scents I love sage.  Sage! That would be my entry.


EDIT: Poll didn't show up on Tapatalk.  So I voted.  But I still like Sage!

I voted for avocado butter because it's in my favorite soap (Grandstaff).  But I wish there were a link to explain the relative benefits of each of the potential ingredients.

My apologies!!
I was/am viewing in Tapatalk and didn't notice there was a poll. Anyway, glad lanolin isn't an option :-) hahaha

Will wait to vote till I research info regarding the camellia. I don't know much about it and don't want to miss the opportunity to try if the characteristics are on point.
That said, I doubt we could go wrong with anything on that list of options!

Will there be a matching AS?

I love the Felce Aromatica. Great stuff, both the soap and the AS.
