Which would you want most, if Czech & Speake were to add another soap from their fragrance offerings?

I'm a frankincense guy ... big time . A very close second for me though is a dark rose as it has been a very long time since I had a
Rose shave of any sort , perhaps two years since my last xpec sample arrived. If I could share a scent profile I would also like to see would be a sweeter floral cologne type lily of the valley , lavender , rosemary , patchouli.

I chose Cuba because I've had a sample of the fragrance and it was truly lovely, very masculine, and original. (However, I am slightly concerned that its spiciness might cause some skin burn sensation.)

Neroli, without even a second's hesitation. Apart from OSP I don't know of a good soap company doing a neroli right now.

While I'm not that crazy about the whole idea of real tobacco scents in shaving soaps, that I massage deeply onto and into my skin, I just love the smell of a great tobacco scent in the winter time, so my vore goes for a shaving soap with the Cuba scent  Number_one

Ok I'll be the oddball and pick Spanish Cedar. Lovely fall/winter scent.

The civet in Cuba kills an otherwise great fragrance for me.

I voted Vetiver Vert.  I know there are a lot of vetiver soaps already out there, but I really like the C&S version  Biggrin

My pick is Spanish Cedar, although F&M is a very close second. I tend to use Spanish Cedar more frequently than the others, although I only own half of them. It looks like I need to try Cuba next.

I'm surprised no one (yet) wants grapefruit (citrus paradisi).
Is this because we know the scent of the Valobra base and don't think grapefruit mixes well, whereas the deeper scents (for example: more woody type) would mask and/or blend more naturally?
Also surprised no rose or dark rose votes yet. Not surprised about mimosa, haha Smile

NSS have a Neroli available - it's lovely.  A lot like the C&S Neroli sample I have.

Wish they would do like DR Harris, just release most or all of their scents in the hard shaving soaps.

Nanny's Silly Soaps just came out with tallow versions of their soaps, including Neroli. I'm a big fan of her soaps.

Is the soap any good? I don't see it talked about much.

They are great soaps.

Czech & Speak shaving soaps, the 2 they have, are among the best shaving soaps you will ever find.
In all areas they are great.
Scent wise, it's subjective of course.

How would you rate the new tallow NSS soaps up against the best shaving soaps ?
