For those of you who have both the Hallows soap and aftershave, is the scent different between the two?  I smelled both and thought they were different, but I just smelled the soap from the jar, not lathered.  Curious if I am miss reading this.  I feel like I get more burnt tobacco from the AS.

same scent, different vehicles (soap base for the soap and alcohol for the splash) is my best guess.

Sometimes it's easier to reproduce a given scent in different products, sometimes it's a bit more complicated.

Example:

A perfume and the same scent in a shower gel does not always smell identical. Close, but not always identical.

I was able to grab one Hallows soap about an hour ago. I ordered it basically because I have yet to try the new Glissant formula and it's one of the most famous soaps across the internet. I can't imagine what the scent is like, I hope I like it, otherwise my brother will be happy to receive it as a gift. I have mixed feelings about the label, but I can live with that!

It is very nice, Nick.  That said, I put mine up for trade as I slightly prefer lighter scents.  I was torn, however, because performance s awesome and the scent is very interesting.

It's one of those scents that I love one day, and don't love another.  Unique for sure.

I generally prefer lighter scents as well, with very few exceptions, but I saw it available on Maggards, they had been left only a handful of them as they told me and I grabbed one when they were only two. We'll see. I really wanted to smell this famous soap. The last 2 years I wasn't one of the lucky gentlemen who had the chance to do so.

To me, the aftershave is a bit smoother and sweeter.

24 days later and I've yet to receive mine. Hopefully, I'll receive it by the end of this week.

I read somewhere that they are thinking to discontinue this scent, so maybe this year's batch is the last one.

I'm in the same boat as you for the hallows. Wanted tot try the base and the description is so interesting I had to try it. I was able to snag a tub of hallows and a tub of mikes for a great price on the BST here. Cannot wait!

Regardless, I love them both.  Hallows is truly unique.

Unfortunately I didn't go for the aftershave but the soap is definitely a keeper. I love the scent, it would be a shame if this would be the last one.
