Which of the 5 scents in this poll do you recommend/prefer?  And if you can describe the scent of Cardamon, Olibanum, and Tea, go ahead and do so.

My favorite isn't on the list, Steam Punk. Dark Lavender is my second favorite, and is somewhat like Mike's Hungarian Lavender, and not at all like the lavender grandma kept in her dresser drawer. I also enjoy Olibanum, which has been described as church incense or frankincense, as well as Cardamon which smells like cardamon, what can I say? I haven't tried Tea or Light Cream, although several others have felt Light Cream had a scent that was too light and was nondescript. If you like the performance of Tabula Rasa, you really can't go wrong with Dark Lavender, Olibanum, or Cardamon.

Thanks Richard.  I think I will add Steam Punk to the list.  Hoping Phil gets some more in as I only have enough for about 4 or 5 shaves.

I have updated the poll by adding Steam Punk and making it so you can vote on two different scents.

Steam Punk is the only soap I've had where I HAD to keep sniffing it!  Such a shame it irritated my skin.  Dark Lavender is an earthy Lavender, which was nice but not outstanding for me.  The other I've tried is Dezember which is wonderfully complex and spicey.  I've also tried Vetiver and Tangerine which was OK but I'm not a vetiver fan.   But none of them have matched Steam Punk for me.

Tea has a very lite scent, tea and something close to lavender are all my nose picked up but it was extremely faint.
Steam Punk is definately a winner and has a very unique scent with strong cedar notes that linger.

Today it seems that I've got a one track mind. I haven't tried Tabula Rasa, but maybe I should consider it. It depends on how slick it is.  Tongue

Scent like Bvlgari perfumes  Huh Huh

Mate I own 11 Bvlgari fragrances - which bvlgari frag are you talking about ???

In my view Steampunk smells a little bit like Pour Homme, but only a little bit

I own that, and the Marine and the Ambra version, and none of them smell even remotely close to Steampunk IMHO

YMMV of course

Not to confuse things Johnny, but Dezember is a unique scent.  Summertime I use the Tangerine Vetiver and the Herbs.  Herbs has a lemongrass scent that reminds me of Al's Saigon.  Its very nice.

I've only tried one scent from TR and thats Dark Lavender. I personally found that its my favorite lavender scent for a SS/SC. I've tried many others but TR always stood out to me. If you like Lavender I can't recommend it enough.

Claus, in  use, and not withstanding the fragrances, do these products provide a strong degree of slickness?
