Hello:
Relatively new wet shaver here.  Just wondering what anybody has found in a shaving soap / cream to match with Floid Blue?  Thank you gentlemen.

I stopped trying to "match" soaps and AS, for me the soap is gone by the time I use the AS-same for the cologne after.

I haven't found an AS to linger

There are three soaps that I really enjoy using with Floid Blue.  MWF, C&S Oxford & Cambridge, and Arko.

I love to use Floid Blue after using one of my Fougere shaving soaps - MDC Fougere, B&M Fougere Aromatique, B&M Fougere Imperiale, Saponificio Varesino Felce Aromatica, Cold River Soap Works Select Fougere Modern, Cold River Soap Works Select Vetiver Moderne and Valobra Fern. It also works very well with Czech & Speak Oxford & Cambridge, as Johnny states, and with Savonniere du Moulin and a couple opf my Savon de Volcans Bon Berger soaps too. Also works quite well with aquatic scented soaps, like Caties Ocean and Caties Le Marche du Rasage.

But as mentioned earlier in this thread, most scents from my shaving soap/cream do not linger more than 15-20 minutes, and most of my after shaves do not linger for more than 1 hours after application anyway. And as a bit of a frag head, I enjoy not to have anything clash with my Fragrance du jour  Smile

But I think I love Floid Blue almost as much as Johnny, and really just use it, what ever soap/cream I have used that day - especially enjoy the Floid Blue in the Spring and Fall.

Myrsol Blue is a very nice similar smelling after shave to Floid Blue, that I also think is great.

Although I enjoy floid Blue the scent doesn't stay long. I think any soap will work. They have an Eau Du Toilette that should linger a bit longer.

Someone mentioned in another thread that TVB Shaving had it online.  Has anyone in this thread had any experience ordering through them?

Beause the topic is related, can I ask a question 

Does anyone knows the menthol ratios of Floid Genuine, Vigorosso and Blue. Which has greater amount of mentol in order?

Mentolado Vigoroso.


In Spanish, it means strong, robust.

shaving shop online has a shaving soap made by ginger's garden that matches the scent of floid blue-called"freud blue".

From most menthol to least in my view:

Vigoroso - quite a bit of menthol

Blue - more tamed down and very pleasent in the background

Genuine - even more in the background.

Thank you for answering a long time question in my mind.
 I had the vigorosso for a long time and just buy the genuine. Me not a fan of menthol so much. I was hesitated choosing between the blue and genuine; wİth the genuine I made the correct choice then.
Thank you

I see the Genunie more as a warmer, spicier, amber scent - which I personally prefer during the colder season of the year.
I prefer the Floid Blue in spring and fall, during summer I pfrefer the Vigoroso and my big bottle Proraso Green splash.

If you want an (IMHO) improved version of Floid Blue, don't be sorry it has been harder to get. Myrsol Blue is IMHO a better version of Floid Blue, or at least as good.

I'm a proud owner of all 10 Myrsol after shave products, they are all great and a stable in my den.
I will get a new bottle of Floid Blue, if possible, when my 400 ml is done (I still have 380 ml left in mine), but if not, as said Myrsol Blue is a worthy replacement for it.
