Of the 2 CB orange soaps, which one is more "citrus orange"? I dont mind earth scents, and I dont mind clove scent, but I want tropicana sting your eyes citrus when I open the lid. Which one is juicier?


Oh, for those not familiar with Chris's offerings, I am trying to decide between Pomander and Le Vert Orange.

Pomander is more in your face orange. LVO is a very mild, orange - more on the citrus side than on the orange side. Pomander on the other hand is very much orange.

Also, there is soap from Caties Bubbles in the Italian formulation called Sunrise. It's orange and menthol, but it's much harder than the typical french formula. To my nose it smells like orange Vicks cough drops. A faint orange and the menthol scent is more prominent but not overpowering. I haven't seen it on the CB website but it might be seasonal. Just another option if you like orange. The menthol isn't very strong though.

These are actually two I haven't tried but you have missed out Fouet L'Orange, also a very nice orange scent.

You are right, I did miss that third one. So between Pomander and Fouet L'Orange, which one is the juiciest?

Fouet L'Orange is quite a sweet orange, It is nice but it's not that real an orange scent. I would say more like an orange scented candle. I can't speak for pomander but if someone says the clove is very light I might look at getting it!

I haven't tried LFO, I had asked Chris Cullen (owner of CB) which he would recommend as I wanted an orange scented soap and he recommended Pomander. He said LFO is modelled after an orange creamsicle if you know what smells like - orange and vanilla ice cream.
