Recently, I was generously PIFed a few samples of Mike's Natural Soap. I promised to choose a couple of the scents that I liked the most and pass the others on. At the time, I had heard the buzz about Mike's Soaps but had not tried them yet, so I'd like to pass the remaining samples on to someone else who is new to Mike's.

I have the following scents available (descriptions are pasted from his website):

Barber Shop (FO) - A complex, potent, manly scent consisting of bergamot, basil, oakmoss, and patchouli.

Pine & Cedarwood (EO) - This scent is simultaneously invigorating and warm. The dominant note is pine, which is backed up and rounded out by a cedarwood base.

If you read the forum regularly, chances are you already know about Mike's Soaps, but IMHO it's good stuff. Here's his website. There's also an excellent interview with Mike here on the forum. The samples are fairly small, but you can get a number of good shaves out of them. I have been using one of the others that I received for about a week and have barely made a dent in it.

If you haven't tried Mike's Soaps (or at least haven't tried the above scents) and are interested, leave a reply in this thread by Thursday night. I'll choose a winner on Friday morning and PM that person to get their address.

[Edit: I hadn't thought of splitting the samples up, but a few people have requested specific scents. I'd be willing to split the samples up, as it would allow more people to try the soap, so if you have specific preference, let me know below.]

I am currently sampling some of Mike's soaps. I have the samples of the two soaps that have orange in them. One has orange and cinnamon and the other orange and bergamot. Love these two soaps. Wonderful. I am not interested in the PIF however, I wanted to encourage anyone to take you up on your offer. Really nice soaps.

Mike's Natural Soaps are absolutely fantastic! If I had to go with one type of soap for the rest of my life, I would probably stick with this stuff. I haven't tried these scents, but please don't count me in. I'm just a big fan is all. Biggrin

Since a number of you seemed interested in particular scents, I am splitting the samples up. And since I wanted the samples to go to someone who was relatively new to the forum, I used the unscientific method of choosing the person with the fewest posts who asked for a specific scent.

I'm sending the Barbershop to MickToley. And the Pine & Cedarwood goes to Triad. Check your PMs.
