Anyone tried Tim's Soap yet? I just missed out on a used one on here a little while ago. Maggard sells it now and I watched a TSE review and he said it is quickly becoming one of his top soaps. I would like to hear from a few more people before purchasing since its a higher price per ounce than I usually like to spend. It is a vegan type soap, or non tallow, which is interesting because their bath soaps have tallow and lard. The scent profiles have me interested.

I own 2 soaps. I grabbed Greek peach a while back and clean cut more recently. I do like the soaps a lot. Great scents to start with. Performance to me is very good. Very protective during the shave. I'd say give it a shot. If U'd like I could send u a sample of each to try.

Tim's Edwardian Lime lathers up easily and does all the right things during and after the shave. It has some lavender in it and overall hits just the right note with me. Though not part of his regular line-up yet, he'll cook some up if you're interested. It's become my favorite soap, period.

That is very generous of you but I will just buy one. The Greek peach is the one I'm thinking of trying actually. Thank you for sharing.

I have Columbia River and like it a lot. Wonderful scent and a great performer. Definitely a permanent part of my rotation.

Sounds very promising. Thank you and thank you to everyone else for sharing. I am going to order one in the morning, and might have to add a bath soap too.

I already have a couple of Tim's soaps, but I do love lime soaps, and I'm really tempted with this one. Scent wise, does it compare to any other Lime soap, in your opinion?

Tim's grapefruit performance (glide, protection) is superb. Maybe to the point you don't need aftershave. Quite a lather too.

It has a balance I haven't found with other limes; maybe the closest is the TOBS(?) but with more "body." Definite lime, but I'm guessing the lavender keeps things from becoming too bright.

May honestly be my favorite artisan soap. Greek Peach, Ruby Red, and Old School Lime are all winners. Performance is stellar.

I've grown especially scent-sensitive so can vouch for the Edwardian Lime as being the only scented soap I use that doesn't wear on me at all. My only other TS is Plainspoken unscented -- same great lathering and face coddling minus everything else. The description of the new "Cimarron," however, sounds appealing -- like Marshal Dillon on a Saturday night out with Miss Kitty. I mean that in a positive way.

So nothing even close to CF Lime, right?

I think Tim's Soaps are excellent. I might be a little biased, as he's a local soap maker. I enjoy Greek Peach, Columbia River, and Old School Lime, and just ordered Cimarron. His soaps perform very well, and his scents are terrific.

Thanks everyone. I just bought Tim's Soap Clean Cut from the BST along with a Shannon's soap, which was also on my list of soaps to try. Talk about timing, I was just getting ready to buy it from Maggard. I always wanted to try Catie's LPV and one review of Clean Cut said it reminds him of LPV. Looking forward to trying both.

I'm confused....Tim's Soap is from Georgetown, Texas, and your sig says Portland. Are we talking about the same Tim?

Any thoughts on Roots, Wood & Roses, and Signature scents?
