I have read that one can find shaving soaps with scents similar to that of Acqua di Gio aftershave or cologne, such as those from Prairie Creations, Ginger's Garden, Stirling, and Mama Bear's.  Which do you think comes closest to matching AdG?

Saponificio Varesino 70th Anniversary. Not sure about the others you mention.

I have never had the pleasure of smelling SV 70th but have heard many folks confirm the recommendation made by NeoXerxes.

As a side note if you are interested in a variation of a theme, AdG mixed with the scent profile of Cool Water then check out Catie's Bubbles, Le Marche du Rasage. Happy hunting!

I was just thinking over the past couple weeks that we actually need is a soap that smells like Armani Eau Pour Homme. Much more classic and original than Acqua di Gio, IMO.

Saponificio Varesino 70th Anniversary, for sure. Plus it's super strong.

Stirling used to carry one but I do not see it currently in stock. Gingers garden probably has it and if not she can make some. Never used her product but from what I've seen on her site she will match just about anything scent wise.
