Most of us have more than enough, let's admit it - we're obsessed in a way.

But as the new artisan soap makers just keep making better and more improved products, and the classic brands also keep pumping new stuff out, it's hard to turn the thumb down and look away for some of us.

I REALLY do try to stop buying and buying soaps and creams, but I'm weak, I admit it  Blush

I would like to hear how many soaps you have from each brand in your den.

Out of memory, here is what I have - only list, when you have more than 2 (at least 3) from the same brand:

Mondial soaps: 14
Barrister & Mann soaps: 12
CRSW soaps: 12
Meißner Tremonia soaps and pastes: 12
Caties Bubbles: 10
DR Harris soaps & creams: 10
Truefitt & Hill creams: 8
TOBS creams and soaps: 8
Musgo Real creams and soaps: 7
Proraso: 7
Penhaligon: 6
GFT Creams: 5
St. James creams: 5
Saponificio Vasesino: 5
Le Pere Lucien: 5
Tabula Rasa soaps: 4
Haslinger soaps: 4
AOS creams and soap: 4
SuperMax: 3
Klar Seifen: 3
Valobra soaps: 3
Martin de Candre: 3

There, I think I just hit 150 - if I count the brands where I have 2 or less from, I think I'm hitting the 250 mark total  Blush
Am I crazy  Blush


Let me see what you have in your den, remember at least 3 unique soaps/creams from the same brand to list them here !

I limit myself to 7 soaps or creams at any given time.  My  concern is that the scent of soaps and creams deteriorates over time.  In the case of soft creams, the consistency also deteriorates over time and they get harder.  I know that Trumper specifies a 12 month shelf life for their soaps and creams.

Great thread!  Forced me to do an inventory, something I've wanted to do for awhile.

Thought I had too many, but I've been whittling it down.  Thanks Claus, can always count on you to make me feel better about the size of my den.  Smile

In fact, think I need to order more soap!

Going to break the rules on the minimum since even the one's I only have 1 or 2, they are still very much favorites (my interpretation of the intent).

Mike's Natural: 3
Barrister & Mann: 4
CRSWs: 5

Below the minimum:

Beaver Woodright: 1
Pannacrema: 1
Caties Bubbles: 1
Tim's Soap: 1
Czech & Speake: 1
Mystic Water:  2
Jabonman: 2
MdC: 1
Strop Shoppe: 2
Calani: 1
Soap Commander: 2

B&M 14
Beaver WoodWright 8
Caties Bubbles 6
CRSW 15
DR Harris 3

I've only got a couple of brands with 2 scents or types.  But I do have about 20 different soaps to choose from.  That's why I put myself on purchase sabbatical this year.

Meisnner:  6

Tiki:  4

Castle Forbes:  3

Xpec:  2 (OK, I guess that doesn't count)

I use the ones I'm sick of as shower soap (expensive shower soap).

I'm pretty sure there are quite a few out there who have even more soap than I do... And my wife manufactures shaving soap. Smile

I pared down the software and hardware quite a bit. Down to SMN, Xpec, BP 1924, MWF, ABC MW Adirondack Jack and Sensitive for face.  For head shaving in the shower which I do on occasion I have cella, Proraso green soap proraso red cream, stIrling almoND creme and aos Lemon. Cream. I also have some speick soap and some godrej soap and palmolive stick laying around.  IN the last 3 months i sold or gave away about 25 soaPs and creams.  I think all I'm looking to acquire in 2016 is ADP and Xpec scented and maybe the TSN Le soap coming out.  Trying to keep a slimmer waist and nook in 2016.

About half are samples. I'm also a headshaver, so I use 2 to 3 times more soap than most people.  By my calculations it should be a little more than a year's worth.
