All good stuff!  The two samples you received - sandalwood rose and jasmine, are also very nice.

Finally got my hands on of Michelle's shave soap. Also got some bath soap for my wife and myself, and a shampoo bar. All the scents are great and I can't wait to test out the lather.

John, let us know how you like both the shaving and bath soaps.  In our house, SWMBO likes the MW bath soaps and lip balms a lot.

Ricardo, used both the bath soap and shave soap tonight. The bath soap was great, nice lather, rinsed off easily and I just feel clean. The shampoo bar was also real treat. Hair feels nice and soft, and nourished.
The shave soap also performed great. I under loaded initially, and had an airy lather, but I just loaded more and got a rich, creamy lather. Face was well protected, slickness and post were top notch. I don't have the soap dialed in yet, but I think I'm just a few shaves away from that.
Overall the products are excellent. All the scents are unique to my den and smell wonderful. I used the Maestrale tonight, and it instantly jumped into my top five favorite smelling soap.

Glad to hear you just went back to the puck to load up some additional soap when you saw your lather thinning out. In my opinion MW appears to build very quickly when loading, faster than any other soap I use, but I find if I spend more time in the puck adding small amounts of water it makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE in the lather I produce and there is no thinning out of the lather over 3 to 4 passes.

Any word on her coming out with an aftershave? awhile ago she had one in the works, thought it would've been out by now?

Her shampoo bars and bath soaps are really great stuff!

Uh-oh !  My copy of The Brown Windsor shaving soap prominently (and uniquely) features the definite article.  

It is not just some indefinite, blasé, Brown Windsor that wandered in off the street, that’s for sure; it is not (a) Brown Windsor, but The Brown Windsor.

Looking at the container in yiannid’s photo above, one hopes that Michelle’s label printer just looked away briefly, and let some erroneous labels sneak out the door.  The alternative hypothesis — that Michelle is going indistinct and all fuzzy — is too horrible to contemplate.

LOL!!!  And aftershave...you guys are insatiable, you know that, right?  Wink  I'm usually working on several experimental projects at a time, but without a specific deadline.  Aftershave is a definite maybe - I did work on a formula that I was pretty happy with but I wasn't ready to add more things to my line.  It creates complications with shipping, for one thing.  I am going to add mustache wax and deodorant to the website soon.  Just need to take pictures, write a description, create buttons...

My husband informs me (he's teleworking today) that I already make 378 products in 20 categories....aftershave would make 21....

Man was I wrong about this soap! About a year ago I bought her shave soap samples, shampoo bars and bath soaps and l enjoyed the shampoo bars and bath soaps but the shave soap I just couldn't get it to lather, so I gave away the samples I didn't use and pushed the used sample to the back and forgot about it. A few days ago I was cleaning out my den, as I'm trying to simplify my soaps and just stick with a few of the best. I seen the old sample sitting there and thought I'd give it another try, this time instead of loading it off the sample puck, I scooped the soap off the puck and I pressed it into the bowl and lathered up. Zero issues with lathering it now, the lather explodes easily with my hard water and made one of the nicest lathers I've come across, lots of slickness, great protection, awesome residue and great post shave. This is definitely one of the best soaps I've used. Love that the scents stick with you, I can use an aftershave and Shea butter and the scent doesn't leave, not over powering but hangs with me. Love the post shave, first time I rinsed all the residue from my face but the last few times I left some and the results are even better it adds a tightness to the skin. Great soap! Glad I give it another shot or I would've completely missed out on this stuff, this may be the best shave soap I've used.

Best way to do a sample. I use a plastic salsa bowl from Wal-Mart.

Glad you got it dialed in.  Mystic Waters is an excellent soap in every respect.

Try it in stick form. I think it performs even better.

I agree.  The MW sticks seem to take the performance to a new level.

That's a good mail call.  Enjoy your MW products.  We tend to focus on Michelle's shaving soaps, but her bath soaps are excellent.
