Gents, am fascinated by the scent of rose soaps after reading various posts on the nook.

I am yet undecided which one to buy. So please help me in zeroing on the best Rose soap in your experience.

I want to keep things simple and convenient for everyone by keeping my parameter list nominal. Only 2 requisites for me : scent profile, performance.

I have few ones in my mind and request your overall rating for the soap.

LPL Rose de Pushkar
Eufros Rosas
Eufros Rosa Bourbon
Czech and Speake 88
MDC Rose

Any other worthy recommendation will be a big welcome.

Thanks in advance!

I have not tried the Jabonman soaps, but your other 3 are top notch. Czech and Speake is a sweeter darker rose, LpL is a 'brighter' rose scent which I like very much, and MdC is unique with t he benzoin resin scent added in. I don't think you'll be getting the MdC unless on BST, they're sold out of that 2016 holiday limited edition. They may bring it back sooner or next year....

Cheers, Steve

The only ones I have personal used are Rosa Bourbon, C&S #88, LPL Rose du Pushkar and Mornington Shaves Foresta di Rosa. I would rate them as follows:

Rosa Bourbon: Scent 1st, Performance 1st
C&S #88: Scent 3rd, Performance 2nd
Rose du Pushkar: Scent 4th, Performance 3rd
Foresta di Rosa: Scent 2nd, Performance  4th

As a side note I believe that Mornington has closed shop

Nikos your recommendations are always top notch.Nuavia Rossa earlier and SDV Lavanda Orange enroute. Rossa is super and I am loving it already.Can't wait for SDV to arrive.

I am open to Rosa Bourbon too it's just that I have already tried Eufros and want to go for the brands I have not used earlier.

Now it seems like I will have to buy 2 rose soaps..

Thank you, Jagdeep. I am sure you will enjoy the SdV as well.

I recently smelled the Rosa Bourbon. It's indeed something special. I can't comment on the performance, but it gets rave reviews, so I wouldn't hesitate, if I were you.

As a side note, I enjoy using the LPL Rose in winter months. It's a very nice soap.

Thanks Sir. I read your other post on LPL. You have mentioned about the new formulation with shea butter which looks promising. I will keep this in consideration..

Both Eufros rose scents are outstanding, but totally different. Rosas is a lighter, sweeter rose, whereas Rosa Bourbon is darker, full bodied scent. Personal preference.

Just to add, a tallow version of Rosa Bourbon will hopefully be available in a month or two.

Even the links of the forums are forbidden, I thought that the partnerships concerned only the sites of sale ? We should create a partnership between our two forums !
