I've been looking forward to this, Paolo. I just ordered the sweet orange, and will eventually give all of your new scents a try. Will you be making ASB for all your new scents, as it's the best ASB I've ever tried and use it almost daily.

Good luck with the new soap.

Any plans to ship outside of the US?

Thank you much Richard!  I am merely waiting for the labels to come back from the printer and the balms will all be ready to roll.

Not directly from me yet, unfortunately.  But I have several distributors that do.

Paolo, need to hook up sometime and check out your scents.  Expect we are the only two Iowa boys living in Charleston who are also into wet shaving.  I mean, what are the odds???

Huh.  Make it three.  I'm a native however, born and raised in the lowcountry.

Love the new website.

I enjoyed the original Agrume but now can't use it because of the newly added lanolin. Oh well. Good luck with the new line anyway.

Thank you much, guys!  Charleston is well represented here!  That is quite the coincidence, David! What part of Iowa are you from?

Ugh!, this kills me!  I wrestled a lot with adding lanolin due to the higher reactionary rate.  I gambled with my own super irritative skin and it worked ok for me, so I went with it.  Sorry to hear this.

My loss. I miss out on a lot of good products because of this. Your original was top-notch, and I'm sure the new formulation will be also. Allow me to compliment you on how you run your business and your customer-care ethic. Also top-notch. I hope you sell a million of these.

Pulito sounds pretty unique. How would you describe the olive scent? We have a farm with olive trees, we use olive oil all the time in our foods, but I can't describe the scent very well. Surely it's unique, there are many traditional olive oil soaps for the olive lovers. Here we can find olive oil hand/ bath soaps in every market.

All I can say is these scents far exceeded my expectations.

You knocked these out of the park.

Well done!

My original idea for Pulito was to steal La Toja's scent! Biggrin 

I wanted a light and clean scent.  I suck at the descriptions too, but i'd say the olive is more leafy/branch-y than oily.  But I'm also sure that in Greece you have access to way more olive-y smells than I could shake a stick at!  

Basically, it's subtle and clean.

Thank you Andrew!  I miss Iowa dearly.  I still have family there and go as often as possible.  I usually try to go during winter as I never get any cold or snow at all here in SC.
