I only own one - Captain's Choice Bay rum. It's heavy on clove and you can pick up hints of herbal bay leaf. I would say the scent is not my favorite, but the packaging and performance are excellent. It makes a super creamy lather and has outstanding ingredients.

Edit: Sorry! Just realized you were asking about soaps. 

Captains Choice is nice. I like their Cat o 9 tails the most of the line. I enjoy the scent, how long it lasts, and the burn lol. 

My favorite bay rum of all is Derby City Chop shop Winter Reserve. Scent, feel, presentation is just outstanding all around!

I have three and the only one I haven't tried to trade is Mystic Water Bay Rum. I'm finding that the Bay Rum soaps just aren't for me.

Mystic Water Bay Rum by the way is great. It's not as sweet and clovey as the others I have tried

Bay Rum is one of my least favourite scents around.
With that said I can still appreciate it.
My only two Bay Rum soaps are:
Mike's Natural Bay Rum
Barrister & Mann Bay Rum

Will add Tallow & Steel Grog later

Haven't tried the one from CRSW, but to me Bay rum is an acquired taste. Not sure I have encountered one that I have liked a lot except for the Blackberry Blossom Bay salve from Chatillon Lux. It's a sweeter, more modern take on Bay Rum, hopefully he would collaborate with a soap maker to release it as such.

Are there any bay rum soaps or creams without lanolin? I know about Col. Conk but I won't use that one. Anything else?

Double check these but I didn't see lanolin listed in the ingredients.

Wrong answer! CRSW is the BEST. 

One of the nicest Bay Rums I've tried. A light hand with the clove, the use of orange instead of lime as the citrus component all works so well.

Sir, that's my answer; perhaps not yours...wrong however? With that comment, I take issue.

Thanks for the large list, that is many more than I would have thought. (Mike's however does contain lanolin), but I may check on the rest. Appreciated.

Come on guys, play nice.  It's just two days after Christmas.  Besides, you are both wrong.  Mystic Waters makes the best Bay Rum  Soap. Smile

In my (not so broad) experience, this is the nicest scent of any soap I've tried.
