Thanks for the update Larry!  

I'm looking forward to trying the new formula, however, I will truly miss the Oliva line as I found it to be almost revolutionary for a shaving soap.  You really made olive oil work, and it was one of my favorite soap formulas.  I'm sure the new formula will be exceptional as well and the descriptions of all the new scents sound absolutely lovely  Biggrin

On the one hand, I'm excited to try something new.  The new formula looks interesting, especially from a soap-making perspective (looks as if there were two separately saponified parts of the soap which were rebatched together at the final step.)  Select formula was always good, but not the best for my use, so this could be a great improvement.

On the other hand, though... Oliva was one of the truly innovative soaps out there.  Excellent performance, and it beat out anything else I've tried from Larry.  I am sad that I didn't know about the discontinuation of it.

Congratulations Larry!

I look forward to trying the new products.

Aftershave in spray pump bottles is awesome! 
I've been refilling an old bottle with a pump sprayer for a few years precisely for the ease and consistency of use. I know how many pumps I use and I don't have to mess about with a cap with wet hands. Less mess and waste!

The scents all look interesting.

Hi Larry,
I always had problems whittling down the number of soaps I wanted from your Select range, just based upon the web-site descriptions - they all sounded good.  However, these scent descriptions are less informative:  I have no idea what Spanish Cypress, Amyris, Ho Wood smells like and I'm having difficultly in finding one I think I'd really like (although in fairness I've liked every CRSW scent I've tried so far.)   I'm sure your Select descriptions mentioned clean / warm / spicy etc.  Would it be possible to revise the descriptions?

My other request is for cheaper international shipping.  Maggards have managed this and I understand it's been very successful.

Good luck with the new range - I'm sure it'll be outstanding.

This is exciting for me.  One, I have very sensitive skin and the prospect of an essential oil only soap is appealing as soaps with fragrance are always a crapshoot.  Also, I like more natural scents.  Two, I enjoy my CRSW v1 soap but find the slickness a bit lacking.  If the new formulation improves on this, it should be awesome.

I was only planning on getting a couple of new soaps this year; CRSW could be one of them.
