It would probably be the best floral scent ever made.

My suggestion was made a few posts before that. I thought we're discussing here.
It's a bit strange that the rose was suggested because we have already tried an LPL rose scented soap. Don't you want something different?!

Tallow based and a scent like MW Bay Rum or First Canadian Bay Rum & Lime would be nice.

I agree something new please, I also would like to see metal tubs and the tallow formula. Perhaps a scent containing lavender , marzipan , incense , sandalwood would be my vote.

I am really intrigued with his tallow formula. Scents, I'm not really good at. I'm a simple bloke, I like the usual Barbershop scent, Sandalwood, Rose (like noir de noir) and Acqua di Parma (scent)

I'll just sit back on the corner and see what you guys come up with...  Biggrin

Since its the Fall season, I actually prefer a patchoulli/spicy scent at the moment. Although, I still don't mind some mentholated soaps for the hot weather.

A. Is the current rose scent in a 200 tin? B. Is it tallow based? C. Define rose scent D. If people raise parakeets  is it mandatory they take in a hawk for variety?

A. Yep
B. No. I am almost sure that a rose scented LPL is not what the market wants because people have already tried the Rose de Pushkar. So a Rose scented soap with tallow as a basic ingredient would probably change the performance of the soap but most people would compare it to the one with the original vegan formula. Is this the definition of an LE? Don't we want something unique?
C. Rose is... rose. At least to me. The scent you get when you smell a bunch of roses or the flower in your garden.
D. Nothing to do with shaving. It's like comparing apples to oranges. Variety is the spice of life.

A. No, only 98g in nice steel container
B. Not currently
C. That is relative, but the current LPL rose is enriched with essential oil of rose, geranium and white musk
D. That statement reminds me of a parable from a Jamaican novelist, Michael Thelwell, called "The Parakeet and the Hawk".  An to answer the question, the variety would be short lived as the hawk consumed the parakeets.  Then there would be no more variety.

I forgot E. Can Cyril produce a soap that smells like the mohair in your old Plymouth while Andy sang MOON RIVER on the AM radio and Jennifer smacked gum while you manuevered your arm around her shoulder? F. Can Phil sell it to a hundred odd customers with said scent or should we all begin dropping words like HIGH END, the only soap that owners of Wolf razors and Morris and Fondren brushes will use to insure a quick sellout? G. can we all enjoy whatever they offer without tossing our heads like angry bulls at each other?

I have seen rose offered as LE before, it's nothing new even when other scents are added for complexity it is still a rose scent. Given this artisan already offers a rose scent is even more reason to ask what else could this gent bring to the table. Perhaps a forest type scent , maybe a marine type scent , something other than what this gent already has offered would fit the bill for a LE scent.

The only thing I'm sure about is that, whatever scent or formula we choose, it will be something really good and we will all have a great opportunity to try another great offering from Cyril.

My preference would be for a tallow based formula in a 200g stainless tin. I'm open to any scent, but maybe something that goes with the season when it's released.

Maybe Ouzo and Spanikopita at a beachfront taverna with lapping waves that remember the black ships heading for Troy? Nikos can buy whatever doesn't sell 24
