Can anyone recommend a really strong scented lavender soap? I really prefer powerful scents as long as they are pleasant of course! I have tried one or two budget lavender soaps but the scent is too weak so I hope someone here can help me out.

I am in the UK so obviously I'd prefer to get one that is readily available here. I have heard that Harris is good though expensive, can anyone confirm?

Many thanks
Dave

Welcome aboard Smile

Mike's Natural Soaps - his Hungarian Lavender is the strongest one I've tried.

I haven't tried many Lavenders because it's not really my think but Mikes soap are fantastic. I am in the UK and I think the best soaps out there are the U.S. Artisans it really doesn't cost that much to get them here.

What they said.  I immediately thought of both Mikes and Meissner-Tremonia as the strongest lavender soaps I have smelled.

Thanks all - unfortunately Mike is out of stock of Hungarian Lavender right now so I guess I'll hold on for a week or two until he re-stocks.

B&M Latha Lavanda is another option, or the old discontinued Black Label Lavender if you can find it. I believe TVBShaving still has the latter, might be cheaper for you since you're in Europe.

This. I have had both and they smell the same to me (Mikes HL and B&M Lavanda Latha).

Yes, Manuel does make a lavender soap. The one I had four years ago was very strong but I haven't tried the latest version.

If Manuel has made his lavender with the same strength as the two soaps I just picked up from him, it will be much stronger than in the past! Oh and another vote for Mikes Hungarian. CRSW's lavender selection is pretty great as well.

CRSW Vetiver soap is superb so I'd guess their lavender is as well...I am sorry (as are my nostrils) I missed that one...

As mentioned prior the Tabula Rasa Dark Lavender is a solid performer. Not sure I would consider it strong but great scent.

I tested the "Meißner Tremonia" Lavender Deluxe. Wonderful scent and a skincare which is absolutely outstanding!!!

But i agree, Mike's Hungarian Lavender is top too!!! Very nice scent.

I've ordered a tube of Coates Lavender...let's see how this cream performes.
