I own all 3 MDC's, have owned Pre de Provence and now own 4 LPL shaving soaps.

I'm of the opinion that the LPL gives me the same quality lather I get from all my 3 MDC's and a better post shave feel than PdP.

What do you think ?
Is LPL the best french shaving soap ?

Is LPL perhaps even the best shaving soap. PERIOD !! ??

My feeling is that LPL comes close to the post shave feel i get from MWF, and her lather is on par with the lather I get from my MDC - great thick moist lather.

The traditional LPL scent is like the MDC Original scent, hit or miss. I enjoy both scents, but prefer the MDC Original slightly, but the LPL Traditional grows on me.

The LPL Cedre Patchouli is really good, so is the LPL Rose de Pushkar. I have the 200 gram LPL LÆavender & Vetiver on the road to me as I write this, so can't comment on that scent, yet.

What is your opinion regarding LPL ?

I found some re formulation in rose de pusher. I first bought the original rose de pushkar in big tin but the new version is incredibly good and amazing performance . Maybe Cyril improved the formula of overall LPL line .

New LPL performance is great !!

I have heard great things about the assmilk soaps....Savonnerie du Moulin and Savonnerie du bon Berger (Les Savons de Volcans).  But I have yet to try them...as they are a bit hard to come by here in the USA.

Savonnerie du Moulin is for sale at bullgooseshaving.com at $25 for 100 grams. I've been eyeing it...I'd love to hear how it performs for someone on the forum.

I have these four LPLs in my rotation. I am uninterested in the unscented, while I am leaning towards acquiring the Cedar-Patchouli. I just don't need another Patchouli-strong soap.

The Vétiver-Bourbon is my favorite. I was confused at first, understandably assuming Bourbon had anything whatsoever to do with whiskey. Wrong! It's a magnificent blend of Pipe tobacco and Vetiver. Terrific. 

The Lavande-Vetiver is completely different. While the Vetiver remains a component, the lavender soothes the natural smokiness of the Vetiver.


The Rose is my newest acquisition and is very pleasant, rivaling the V-B. If I can find the right Rose aftershave, I might have my number one combination this summer.

The Original gets the least attention in my den, but I just picked up a bottle of the Aftershave, so maybe that'll encourage me to go to it more often.

Now, the $64,000 question: "Which soap leaves the skin the softest, smoothes, yet still moisturized?
For me...LPL. I think I can speak to this with some expertise, having shaved with MdC Original for 30 consecutive shaves. Naturally, my skin type, water, even diet influences this result, so as the saying goes...you know the rest.

almost forgot the Rose, it's so small...

I tried all three MdCs, two LPLs(rose and patchouli), and the 30%  and 40% SdM. For the life of mine cannot choose a winner!

LPL:
  side effects are minimal, performance is stellar. 
Will have to use SdM more often, I feel this is not a question to answer with ease. SdM could be clearly better in the skin care department, and has a high quality soap base, besides  smelling delicious. I do soak my skin with lather and do so after preshave soap, so that will be my case-your Mileage may vary.
 Lpl has that puristic shaving soap approach and very little asine milk in it....

Other than MdC, I have only used hard-milled French soaps, no other soft ones.
Of all the ones I have tried I think my fav is Cade for scent and performance overall. êShave is my number 2.
Did not like the scents of any of the PdP or PS offerings. Gave me a headache.

If you want to try something that mighjt just beat MDC in all areas, you owe it to yourself to try one of the LPL's.

This is coming from a huge MDC fan. I still love my MDC soaps !!

I have been needing to try LPL. But with all the soaps I have right now, I can't bring myself to picking one up. When I release a couple soaps, I will be buying LPL and SdM, which are the only other two soaps I really need to try.

The best French shaving soap is Provence Sante. For post shave NOTHING comes close--even MWF. Everytime I use it there is absolutely no irritation- as if the blade never even touched my face. The lather is very thick and creamy--better than MdC. I love the scent (verlaine) it is so soothing.
