Was looking to find out some opinions on admiralty, fougere santal, submariner command presence and test depth.  Fougere santal, i love fougere and like sandalwood but not most sandalwood. Mainly just CRSW and hate TOBS sandalwood. Anyone shed some light on if it smells like tobs sandalwood? Is it really floral? Test depth similar to vision by soap commander? command presence is a barbershop type how does it compare to mikes? Admiralty is probably the one im most intruiged in. i have no citrus soaps so kinda looking forward to hearing from you guys and submariner like a vanilla bourbon scent?

I have Test Depth and it is a very lightly scented soap. To me it does not smell like Soap Commander Vision which is alot like Davidoff Cool Water with mint. Submariner is just plain AWESOME! I'm not good at describing scents but it's kinda of a lightly spicey Bourbon Vanilla-ish scent

Thanks for posting this thread. I am ordering another Reef Point tonight or tomorrow and stuck between Fougere Santal and Admiralty. I have only used Espresso and it is outstanding and very strong scented which I like.

Submariner is my favorite scent from them. It is perfect for winter/fall with a spicy, warm, sweet vanilla type bourbon scent.

My next best favorite is earl grey and ginger which just smells amazing.

I've sampled admiralty and although the performance was great, I found it to be more floral than citrusy. I did not buy the full puck. 

Anyway I've said this on the forum before but reef point performs almost better than anything else I had so it's all a matter of finding the right scent.

Try some samples if you are unsure that's what I did. I ended up buying three full pucks if soap after that.

It is definitely one of the best performers on the market for me too. I might have to try the Early Grey and Ginger. It seems everyone who has used that one loves it. I'm just trying to remember how well I like the scent of Early Grey tea and I don't have any on hand unfortunately to smell.

Is he showing out of stock on everything because he's closed? Maggard has Reef Point by the way.

Dragon's Blood is the only Reef Point i own and is my favorite soap out of the 15+ soaps i currently have. It makes for a super thick, slick cushioned lather and the scent is incredible to my sniffer

Fouler Santal is quite nice.  Mind you, its the only Reef Point I own.  Very high quality soap in terms of scent, slickness and face feel afterwards.  My top three categories.

Test depth is a nice, cold-clean scent. I like it a lot, and of course - the performance is great. Was a little disappointed to read that admiralty is more floral than citrus.

Although I have it and like it, I can't get over that it smells like incense in a cheap flea market.  Not sure why.

I definitely smell more of the Japanese Yuzu from the sample that I have, than any floral notes.  I'd get the sample if I were you.  It smells great.  Not sure why so many guys love Earl Grey and Ginger so much.  I get the most floral from that scent.
