I'm looking for shaving soaps that smell like cologne. So far, Tabac is the only shaving soap I've used that smells like cologne.

Do any of these tallow-based shaving sticks on my "To try" list smell like cologne?

La Toja
Palmolive
Wilkinson Sword


Regardless of whether they smell like cologne or not, how do their scents compare to that of Tabac?

I'm guessing you only want Tallow based suggestions? If not Mama Bear's Soaps has several soaps that smell exactly like different popular colognes out today. I find her soaps to be very good performers. They make a great lather, their slick, and their stable. Not tallow based but you might be suprised how good they are.

To answer your other question none of those three smell anything like Tabac in my opinion. They are all very light scent's. YMMV.

Pnume, you can add cologne to soap. Just use a soap with a compatible scent or no scent and add what you need.

Penhaligon if you can find the tallow version.

I am sure there are more that I cannot think of.

Dr Harris Marlborough and Arlington.

T&H 1805 and Trafalgar.

Pen's EF and BB.

Acca Kappa 1869.

Floris no. 89.

IMO all these smell reminiscent of their matching cologne or EdT.

I know I haven't really answered your question. I have used La Toja and Palmolive sticks, but never a matching cologne. Dr Harris have tallow based shave sticks in Marlborough and Arlington which resemble the scent of their matching cologne. IMO they are great soaps and great scents too.

I got the Taylor of Bond Street Jermyn for sensitive skin for Father's Day and it is currently my favorite scent out of all the products that I have. It has a lasting scent that still lingers throughout the day and I would definitely say that it reminds me of a cologne. In fact, I am going to buy the matching aftershave lotion to go along with it.

That's a bit hard to describe. I guess pretty much any shaving soap that has a potent scent without smelling synthetic.

Take a look at the Black Tie scent from The Strop Shoppe. It has a very masculine, cologne like scent, plus lathers quite well for a veggie soap. I plan on putting up a review in a couple days.

Oh maybe not, i met up with edgerunner and he had sample pack i caught wiff of, if not yet certainly something to watch out for if you are looking for something with a cologne scent type, that's exactly what i
thought of when i had a smell. and also why im not sure i would like it
