I thought it would be fun (hopefully funny) to see the very common soaps/creams that even we, personally, are surprised we have have not used yet.
For instance, maybe you never used any Proraso or TOBS cream or Mike's soap (which 95% of us have used one scent from those brands).
Or if you are someone like me who has used nearly everything, it would be funny to see the small but nearly complete list of the few things you haven't used (yet!!!! Smile )
This will probably take some thinking.

As I mentioned, I am one who's used almost everything in the past 3.5 years, but never used Arko or WMF.
No Arko bc of the scent description (but I'm going to eventually try it).
No WMF for two reasons: initially bc of the problems others have with creating lather, and permanently bc of the lanolin (which I can't use).

I am sure there are several other common ones I haven't used (not many though!!), but I wanted to give an example.
I'll brainstorm for others.

Adding to my list:

Cella- either form, I just don't care for almond scents, but some day I might try this just to check it off the list
Floris 89 cream- newest version, no parabens
I Coloniali creams in tubes- I do have the puck and backups
Dr. Selby- any form
LPL- any scent; mainly due to my experience with MDC (bad, but I want to try this again too), I will eventually try LPL.
Palmolive cream- I have the soap
PdP cream- I have the soap
Tabac cream- I had the soap
TOBS new formula creams (no parabens)- I will try one I suppose
T&H No. 10- but I have tried their main formula in most scents
Mühle Organic cream- but I just bought it so this will soon be off my list
Dr. Dittmar- but I just bought it so this will soon be off my list
Nancy Boy- always wanted to but the scents don't sound interesting and I loathe the name
Mama Bear- I won't use things with a female or childish name, let alone both, I just can't do it.
Biotique Bio Palmyra cream

... And most containing lanolin (after I figured out I'm extremely allergic to lanolin, I stopped using anything containing it)

This still isn't complete but a good chunk.

Interesting thread you started Matt.

There are many I haven't tried, including MWF and MdC.  I'll get to some of these eventually.  However, with so many excellent soaps available, I don't have the drive for trying everything that I used to.

Haven't tried Santa Maria Novella….this is on my shaving bucket list…but I can't seem to find an online source for it.

Prefer one based in europe where the shipping charges are a little less hard-hitting.

Will never use anything with tallow in it so there's a lot of stuff I haven't tried.  Honestly I get such good results from Maca Root cream and ToBS cream that after trying a lot of stuff, I come back to those 2.

Haven't tried: most artisans
Haven't tried but want to: smn or smf

BTW nancy boy signature cream is great, it's different than the average cream in texture and performance and has an awesome scent.  worth a go in my book

There are so many made, some I dont even know of, that it's a daunting task and list. What I have tried is a formidable list as well, unless its being compared to a list of what our Viking friend could make.

I'll add the Carthusia to my list as well.

As far as Plisson/Joris, they use Sodium Palmate first so that is 99% guaranteed not to lather the way we like.
