So, I'm finally going to order some Eufros (formerly JabonMan) soap.  The scents I see mentioned most often is the "wet earth" (Tierra Humeda) and Haitian Vetiver, but I'm also curious about the Gea, Rose Bourbon and Yling Ylang.  I'm in the "leather, tobacco" camp rather than then "sweet, fruity" camp.

Those of you who have experience with Eufros, what's your favorite?  How would you describe the different scents you've tried?

EDIT: Crap, I found a Jabonman/Eufros thread.  I'll post there.  Sorry.

The Rosa Bourbon premium and Lavender regular are all that I have tried and both have excellent performance and scents.  The Rosa Bourbon is easily the nicest Rose scent I've smelled.

Rosa Bourbon is fantastic all around in my opinion, but if you are in the leather tobacco camp, I'm thinking Rosa Bourbon will be outside your criteria. More like a tropical floral rose pink champagne with a spritz of bourbon It's a unique smell that I've grown to love and clearly not what I expected.

Mare Nostrum is my favorite soap scent from Eufros and just might be my favorite scented soap of all time. A sweet floral with just a hint of spice on the tail end, I believe that's due to the aniseed. Sounds goofy, but somehow it reminds me of Spring when I was a child... that's what great scents do, in my opinion, transport you to a different time and place.

Thanks Luis.  I ordered the Vetiver and Rose based on reputation, but the other two sound like they're my kind of scent.  I wish I could have ordered the Yling Ylang, Mare Nostrum, Violet and Dame de Noche too, but unfortunately my money tree has yet to bear any fruit.

Eufros Rose Petals is a green rose with hints of apple and a distant whiff of cardamom. It's the most evocative rose I've ever smelled. Nothing more perfectly captures the delicate feel of an evening in late Spring, taking tea in the rose garden.

I think I prefer it even to Manuel's Rosa bourbon.

After trying a sample of the Dama de Noche months back it still haunts me. Beautiful floral scent, creamy performance. I need to stop contemplating and start purchasing, though I'm buried in way too much soap.

I just received some rose bourbon, gea, and two samples: tobacco and fougere. Wonderful slickness and lather and I like all the scents except the gea. Just not to my liking. Manuel seems a very nice person and makes a quality product. By the way, the tins are great too. Plenty of room for lathering.
