Great thread, Claus. My favorites are mostly in your list, but two I've never been able to manhandle are in your honorable mentions (Cella and DR Harris). I'm mostly a cream guy, but I've probably got 20 soaps. The only ones I use now are:

Both Nuavias
Tabac
MdC Fougere
Fine American Blend

All are amazing to me, especially the Nuavias. I've got a B&M Glissant on deck to try, so I may expand my rotation...

Curious what you make of it. The Nuavias are better than C&S imho. Pricier though. itching to try the glissant. I just wish he'd be more forward about which of his soaps have it.

As long as the thread was resurrected a revamped shave den is in order:

Phoenix and Beau
OSP
Mike's
Mystic Water

The top two really shine.

Coming from you my friend, that's a ringing endorsement for the Brits.

This is a fantastic list, proud that two Brit artisans are doing really well. Great soaps. Mikes and Mystic are also amazing.

Yes, the two gents in and just north of London are producing Tier 1 soaps these days. The EO scents are gentle and not too overpowering (my preference) combined with world class performance.

All except MW are available at Maggard's now, and it seems they're the only option besides buying direct for OSP.

Great list Alex. Especially your top 5! Yeah, OSP is really growing on me. Not triple milled but a really well made harder soap. Right there with the best.

Great list

I would add Tabula Rasa, Savon des Volcans, CRSW & Boellis to it.
