Tonight I used my 'Latha' soap by Barrister & Mann. This stuff is just fantastic. The scent is Lavender/Oakmoss/Heliotrope. You guys have to try this. The scent is great and the performance is even better. I can't say enough abut this soap, it's the best I've used so far and I tried plenty. I highly recommend it.

Not my favourite scent of Will's, but I own it and appreciate it.

Of all my several 100's soaps, the 6 B&M Latha's and Caties are the easiest to lather. They lather from just taking 2-3 swirls in the tub. Great stuff, and the Latha line is budget friendly

It's my favorite "barbershop" scent. And there's a matching Latha splash that smells great, nourishing, and a great value

Too much anise for me. The Latha base is excellent though, and there's plenty of variety in scent choice so everyone can find one that works for them.

Latha is the easiest lathering soap I've ever tried. It's also one of the best lathers in my opinion.

Yes, I agree with this 100%. This makes lather so easy and it's top quality as well. I tied the Sandalwood and didn't care for it but this one I love.

I put it in a shave stick dispenser and it performs just as good as my best sticks, which I also have many of. I can't say enough about this Latha.

Agreed, I think the Latha Sandalwood was an enormous flop of a scent.  My nose isn't the best, but I can't pick up a single hint of Sandalwood in there, only what smells like synthetic currant, ie cough syrup.

I picked up a tub of Latha (Limon) on a whim a few weeks ago and after using it twice (by the second time I learned it liked a little more water than I gave it the first time) it impressed me so much I've been using it almost exclusively. I have had to force myself to reach for my other soaps. I couldn't ask for more out of its performance, and for the price it's hard to beat.

That Muhle synthetic is probably my favorite synthetic out there.

I know there's a boat load of enthusiasm over the 'plission clones' which are very good in of themselves, but I'd prefer a stronger backbone of the Muhle/EJ synthetic.... in a synthetic chubby the backbone is... too strong.

I tried most of the Latha line via samplers before settling on Oceana, which I very much enjoy,

The Lavender/Oakmoss/Heliotrope interests me, as long as the Lavender is not totally dominant.

I love the Latha Lavender!  The Taiga is awesome too. So good my brother kept it after my stay with him.

It is indeed a good soap, very high value. Not my favorite scent, to my simple nose it's smells faint of an overripe banana. Not that it's unpleasant, but it's what it reminds me of.

I also have the Le Petite Chypre which I bet is also an awesome performer. I haven't tried it yet, but B&M soaps are tried and tested, you know what to expect even with the Latha line.

The Lavender is not.  It's really a different kind of scent.

I agree that the Latha is a great performing soap, scent is one of my favorite. My only concern is the value of the soap, a few months backs I used it daily and it lasted me a little over a month, maybe it's just me but I tend to use more soap with this than others.

Definitely not just you, this soap disappears VERY quickly!
