I've been lucky enough to try many shaving soaps, but there is one soap in particular that gives me a serious case of Shave Soap Sniff Disorder ("SSSD"): Stirling Gatlinburg!!!  I can barely walk past the bathroom without opening this tub for just one more sniff!  Bonus - it performs well too.  

So fill in the blank: Which shave soap (irrespective of lather performance) do you find yourself most frequently opening up for a sniff, even if you're not planning to shave?

A few favorites:
B&M Latha Oceana
Blades Grim Smolder

There are many other scents I really like and will sometimes grab to sniff, but the ones above are the repeat offenders.
And then there's WSP Barbershop - which I just took home today and keep sniffing!

Mine change from time to time. Currently it would be Sapone di Paolo Pulito and L&L Trismegistus

Others that I seem to go back to frequently are:

Caties - LPV
Nuavia - Rossa
Mystic Water - Vetiver & Oakmoss
CRSW - Bois Floroux

Interesting that iColoniali is mentioned so often. I don't find the scent of the soap to be anything special but the iColoniali Mango oil Balm is another story. That is hands down the best smelling shaving software that I own.
