Only 2 for me.

Savon de Volcans Lavande Orange and CRSW v.2 Citrus.

I'm not only satisfied with the performance of these two, but also the scents are amazing!

I will definitely buy them again. All the others can be replaced.

Which are yours?

I only have one that cannot be replaced, and that's MWF.

I've always been a big fan of the Adp scent.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to shave with the previous version of AdP. I sniffed once the newer one and it is unscented, no scent at all. Given its price, I didn't buy it. I'd prefer a nicely scented soap to an unscented one at that price.

All of my soaps are replaceable, well almost.  I have a stockpile of Tallow Trumper as that is my number 1 favorite and I have never tried another that is close in overall performance.  However, I used to feel the same way about Strop Shoppe and then they went away.  After a short grieving period I tried some of the suggested alternatives and fell in love with Mike's Naturals, Mickey Lee and Saponificio Varesino (how is it possible for a non-tallow soap to be this good?).  I guess what I truly learned is that there is nothing in my den that if taken away would remove my enjoyment of this hobby.  The camaraderie among the forums and the excitement of finding new things to try will still be present and then of course the shave itself which is like a morning meditation, a start of what is hopefully another stress-free day.

Caties Bubbles LPV - whilst the performance is very good the scent is absolutely divine and probably my absolute favourite scent.

Whilst I love the scents in my other favorite brands (Mike's, Stirling, CRSW) I am happy to have a mixture of scents available. As long as the soap is available I am happy to try a variety of scents from these artisans.

Stirling Margaritas in the Arctic... always have to have a puck on hand and it's the only scent I will actively buy the Soap, aftershave, witchhazel & aloe, and aftershave balm. It was my very first soap and was recommended by a friend, it will always be my favorite and my go to soap if I'm in a rush. I'm fairly certain I could lather it perfectly blindfolded.

Just said it in another thread. 

Arko and Tabac.  I have a large supply of other soaps but I doubt I will be ordering any soaps other than Tabac and Arko again unless I want a good puck of Bay Rum for the summer. 

I am not sure I would miss any other soaps.

Stirling Sharp Dressed Man.  Still my favorite performer.  I've tried many of the GIT options from other vendors, and Stirling's is still tops for me.

This for me as well. There are so many out there I have not tried, and shaving is the one big indulgence I allow myself.  I'll never try them all, but I'm gonna make a giant stab at 'em.
