The only 2 I have at the moment are MWF and I Coloniali.

Only 11 soaps in my den and I foresee maybe another 5 or 6 to be added. I seem to be working my way into the stated position of Claus, able to work virtually any soap into a fine performing lather leading to a good to great shave. Even the Col. Conks, bought as a rookie, yield a fine shave. The CRSW Select v2 Limenthol is the current darling with its performance and just the right amount of menthol to make the lime sparkle.

Yardley is my best but second place is quite crowded. In no particular order
C&S Oxford & Cambridge
Mitchell's Wool Fat
Tabac
an old piece of Penhaligon's English Fern  and one of Blenheim( both tallow) that my cousin gave me
C&E Sienna and Nomad
Ralph Lauren Safari
WSP Mahogany
Speick stick grated into a bowl
some are on the list for performance reasons (although they all perform great for me) others for fragrance or both.
