Is there a consensus on what is her best/most popular scent?  Looking at the new ones (Lavender Lime, Pompelmo e Fiori, Raspberry Lemon).  Thoughts?

So many that are great, Vetiver & Oakmoss, Egyptian Dragon, Poggio dei Pini, and Bay Rum are some of my favorites. She also does have a list somewhere of her most popular soaps that I saw recently but cannot remember where it is.

My vote goes to Poggio dei Pini - haven't tried Vetiver & Oakmoss though.

Oh boy, I have no idea which her most popular scents are, there are so many of them.  Here are my favorite scents, they seem to be more of the ones you hear about, so perhaps they are on Michelle's most popular list.

Adirondack Jack
Bay Rum
Poggio dei Pini
Maestrale
Frankincense & Myrrh

Is the Poggio dei Pini straight up Pine, or is something else going on there?

Out of the four that I've used, by scent I would have to order them"

Marrakesh
Bay Rum
Irish Traveler
Jasmine

They're all superb scents, and it's a real olfactory treat to use any of them.

How can you tell which are the new formula with the chelating agent? (I didn't see an easy way to identify them on the website)

Best bet is to email Michelle directly and ask her which soaps she has in her new formula. From what I recall she plans on switching all to the new formula once the old stock is gone, but she can tell you what she currently had available in the new...

From what I read, the 3 new ones for now are new formula:

Lavender Lime
Pompelo e Fiori
Raspberry Lemon

I could be wrong, but pretty sure that is what I saw her say in another thread.

I mailed Michelle last week to purchase some soap and she listed the ones with the new formula.

Thanks for the lists gentlemen! I've been waiting to order, but looks like she has plenty of soaps converted now.

Hi guys, I updated the website today, specifying which soaps have been made with the new formula.  The most recently made ones are Vetiver & Oakmoss and Sweet Briar, so although I haven't removed the buttons for those two, if you order them in the next week I might have to delay shipping for a few days until they can be wrapped.

Anyone care to compare the new formula to the old in terms of lathering ease?

Put simply, I find it easier to lather.

Coming from someone who mastered her old formula, the primary difference for me is it takes me less time with the new formula to get the right lather than with the old. I also find the new formula a little less finicky. By that I mean with the old one, sometimes I'd find myself fiddling too much with the water/product ratio to get it right (especially if I haven't used MW in a bit). Whereas the new one seems more intuitive to me--which directly contributes to the first difference I listed.
