Who makes a good vetiver shaving soap? I like mikes and Manuel wet earth. Is there some other earthy vetiver soaps out there?

Mickey Lee Soapworks makes an incredible green vetiver scent - Reunion. I'm a total vetiver nut and it's my favorite.

Thanks for the help. I've got the Fine but to me it's not the same smell as the others.

The Mystic Water Oakmoss and Vétiver is really nice, top notch performance and one on my favorite scents. CRSW Vétiver Moderne is excellent as well and if your not opposed to a little citrus mixed in Tabula Rasa Tangerine Vétiver is simply awesome!

Simpsons Lavender Vetiver is a fantastic fragrance and an excellent cream too.

Cheers, Steve

Try the limited edition Vetiver from eufros. It is an artisan soap maker from spain and this soap is performing great

Two that punch way above their weight class are Fine's and WSP.

+1  I really like everything about both Rustic and Formula T except the fact that the tins are packed so full! I know it sounds like a facetious remark, but, until I've used up at least a quarter of the container, it is difficult to load my brush without making something of a mess. No worries, but I prefer to load up my brush and lather right on my face, and the crammed full tin makes it almost like just holding a puck in your palm (aka bowl lathering without the bowl).

I love the soaps enough to accept this with a smile. The product itself, while not rock hard, has had the water cured out of it. Consequently it's very dense and long lasting. The Rustic vetiver is really lovely stuff! Mahogany is superb too.

Do any of these soaps smell like Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver?  I like that scent quite a bit, but dislike smoky vetiver scents.  Thanks.

Fine made until recently an aftershave based on the above and it was my favorite, Fresh Vetiver. They've discontinued it when they got into soaps as well and I was a little p.o.'ed but then they came out with Lavender Pour Homme in both and I'm happy as a clam again.
p.s. I stocked up on the Fresh Vetiver AS when the rumors began.
