My order of Mickey Lee Soap Works arrived the other day. Now, I have used a few of their soaps before but the scents have been just "ok" in my opinion so I have sold them on. However I was always really impressed with the performance so have been waiting for a scent I really like the sound of. Having waited a while and decided against Bee Witched I thought I would go for Paradise Frost when it was released. So a few days ago I took possession of:

Lime Pre Shave Butter for my dad (I already have this and think it's the best pre shave on the market)
Peppermint Pre Shave Butter
Paradise Frost
Kokomo
Sample of their new vegan soap (freebie)

I must say I am super pleased with all of scents other than the sample. Paradise Frost is awesome.

I am hoping someone might be able to tell me what Grand Havana smells like!

And if you don't know tell me what your favourite MLSW scent is or what you want to try if you haven't used them yet!

Is Paradise Frost mentholated?

Yes it is but not very strong, it's not a face freezer. It's a really nice level of cooling just right for a hot day.

How long does a jar of that Preshave last? Ingredients and description are promising.

I haven't finished my first tub yet but by the rate it's going down I would say with constant use 2-3 months. You do not need a lot, it's the best pre shave I have ever used and I have used a lot of pre shaves.

The two scents I have Lime and Peppermint are great and I have heard their other two scents (Lavender and Sandalwood) aren't bad either.

Thanks guys.

I'm currently using RR PreBarba and also use Proraso. The Line and Lavender Mickey Lee Preshaves may be worth me trying.

I do like the fact that it is a butter consistency and they are enjoyable scents. The RR smells nice but I don't care for the scent of Proraso.

I used the peppermint preshave butter this morning with some RR S Maria. The combo of peppermint, eucalyptus, and menthol was surprisingly fantastic! Made a great soap that much better!

I haven't tried MLSW just yet, but plan to in the future. It sounds like a promising soap.

In my opinion, Mickey Lee beats both hands down. They have done a cracking job at getting a really good pre shave product and matching it with great scents.

I would suggest getting a few of their samples from Maggards.

I'm fortunate enough to have a local brick & mortar that carries Mickey Lee. I got to smell most of the scents without having to buy them all, and the performance is really second to none. It has become my new go-to soap.

I have two: the Kraken and BeeWitched. Scent-wise, Kraken is the winner. May be one of my favorite from 20+ of soaps I have. Performance by the BeeWitched is something extraordinary and rather stronger that the Kraken.

I've used both Kokomo (pina colada) and Paradise Frost (grapefruit menthol), and they're both excellent. Sammy Lee has a nose for gourmands, and she's made some great ones in the past year. However, my favorite to date has to be the Kraken. It starts as a powdery barbershop similar to Maggard London Barbershop, Strop Shoppe Barbershoppe, and others, but takes on a very nice aquatic and fresh twist.

MLS is in my top 3 favorite soap. They make really excellent product/scents and the owners of the company are wonderful people. Glad to see others enjoying it!

Mickey Lee is fantastic soap imo. Easy to lather, slick and stable. Plus the milks r great if u haven't tried them. And for 8 buck they can't b beat.

Where do you see $8?

I'm seeing $12 a puck which isn't bad at all, but 50% more then you are quoting.

Oops, I missed that part. Thanks.

I haven't been tempted by artisan stuff in a while, but this stuff may change that.
