got a few scents and while the scents are not my top choices i have to give him credit the soap is awesome. used the ghost town today and i have to admit after lathering it the scent changes and has a nicer scent to my nose still not my favorite but much better. picked up more of the leather and less of the muskiness i was smelling. this is a ultra soft soap veering on the consistency of rr santa maria if one has tried that soap. this one is not exactly that soft but its darn close. i only loaded the brush for about 10-15 seconds and had more lather then i knew what to do with so imo i way overloaded the brush. the only drawback to the softness is i had some small chunks in the bristles i picked out before actually face lathering. it left an incredible slickness behind after rinsing and just gave me a great shave. for anyone who has not tried the chiseled face soaps you should. still not a super fan of the scent of ghost town but it performs fantastic. my list of top artisan soaps just continues to keep growing lol.

Good overview- I have been curious for some time about Ghost Town Barber. I only have Sherlock from CFG but also like the performance a great deal.

Mechanic shave soap or motor oil aftershave is what I got when I smelled the soap.

I got a sample of Ghost Town Barber a while back. I find the scent understated and pleasant, and the performance is very, very good.
If I ever get my soap inventory worked down, I'd come back to Chiseled Face.

When you buy a CF soap, you need to lather it up before you decide whether you like it or not. The Soaps always change into what they should smell like when they lather. Some of his scents smell a bit funky in the container.

I find the performance of Chiseled Face to be really GREAT.

However, the scents are hit or miss.....  Really pays to try samples. 

I would agree with most of the above, that the scent in the tub is sometimes very different then the scent on the face.  Summer storm smells like a wet dirt patch in the tub, but really comes alive on the face!

I haven't lathered it yet but Redneck is the scent that drew me to buy CF samples. I would say he nailed it, except the name. I describe Redneck as "Autozone in a jar" (or Pep Boys if you haven't been to Autozone). It's that mix of rubber from tires and hoses, with engine oil. It's crazy. I dunno if it's something I would use regularly but it reminds me of my dad who was ASE Master Certified before moving to an office job, and still was always doing side work on cars until he got sick and passed away.

My dad was also a mechanic, so I have been working on cars as long as I can remember. That's why I want to try it. I think I'll order some today.

I have been using the Ghost Town Barber in my rotation for a while now. Chiseled Face soaps excell in all areas. In fact, I used it this morning.

I smell like that most days when I get home from work.  I usually try to get that smell off of me.   Smile

I should probably buy a sample though just to irritate my wife.  I remember the one time I tried Stirling's Texas on Fire.  My wife said I smelled like a tire fire and asked me if they made a diesel fuel scent.  

Sounds like this one might just be close enough.

I tried CF soaps a few months ago. Cryogen was simply painful. Just way to much menthol. As for the ghost town barber the soap was okay but the smell to me was terrible.

The CF stuff lathers really well. The Cryogen is just over the top. My eyes were watering from that one. Sherlock is pretty awesome.

How would you describe Sherlock?  I've been thinking of purchasing it for a while but am just not sure on the scent description.

Dirt and leather. It's pretty unique.

I'm interested to know what put you off about the scent. My nose is not too good, but I find GTB pretty mild and unobtrusive.
I haven't tried Sherlock. From what I've read, its scent is more polarizing.
