Gentlemen,

There has been a running thread about MdC rose on another forum and rumors there and maybe here were that the rose would be re-released for Father's day, which is Fête des Pères, June 18th in France. One of the members emailed MdC and got a reply from Isabelle. What she said:

There will be another issue of rose later this year, but not for Father's Day.

There will be a new scented shaving soap released for Father's Day, but she did not name the scent.

Now an observation, every shaving soap they've released so far has had a corresponding bath soap in the olive oil line and in fact they've had rose bath soap long before the shaving soap and both are the same scent. There's only one olive oil bath soap scent left after the release of rose and vetiver, and that's thym, girofle, et canelle, of thyme, clove and cinnamon. I've had the bath soap for a couple of years and it is indeed a warm masculine scent that I've been hoping to see in a MdC shaving soap. Fingers crossed! Of course they could come up with something new from scratch.

Cheers, Steve

Another scent would be welcome, although I doubt that I'll ever use up the four scents that I already have.

Like to try a new scent.   I still love the fougere the best, followed by the original out of the 4 I have.  

The Rose was okay, I actually prefer the Soap Commander rose a lot more and they are very very close in performance and 1/4 of the price.

I am happy with my Fougère and Original. No interest here.

I found the Vetiver soap to be a welcome, albeit temporary, addition to the lineup. Martin de Candre soaps are fantastic and last forever. Well worth the money, I think. As a true MDC enthusiast, I welcome anything new on the horizon.

Do the new containers still feel like glass? kinda like the aftershave bottles that CRSW used to use and Tallow and Steel uses, their plastic but look and feel like Glass or are they more like the new CRSW plastic soap containers?

Agreed. I'm stuck with what I've got.
Don't feel the temptation any more.

I have the Rose in the new jar, and the Fougere in the old glass jar. The Rose plastic jar is hefty and strong, and would survive a drop on the tile floor, I suspect. When I ordered the Rose, I was a bit concerned about the "cheapening" of the MdC experience, but no longer. The new packaging is better, in my opinion.

The new containers look just like the old and have fooled people. You can tell they're not as heavy and they feel 'warmer', I suppose because plastic insulates better and is lighter.

If you've ever dropped a MdC glass jar on a tile floor you'll be glad of the new jars. Don't ask me how I know...

Cheers, Steve

Hi Claus,
The allure of scented soaps has never been top priority to me. Witness the fact that my favorite soaps are the AOS tallow, Vintage Williams, Vintage Old Spice, Tabac, MWF, et al. Like you, the way I want to "smell" is what aftershave/EdT/EdC I choose. I do enjoy my MdC, but not any more than I enjoy AOS. Not to mention, the premium cost of MdC. When my 2 jars are empty...I am chuckling  24  (I might be 80), they will not be replaced. Good soap. Not great soap. Heck, my new Boellis Panama 1924 supersedes MdC by a long shot.

That's what's great about essential oil scents, they smell great when lathering and using the soap but soon after the shave the scent is gone and the cologne steals the show.

Great thanks! If it has the glass look and feel but the durability of plastic that's a win win.

I have both glass and the new plastic. You will not be disappointed.

Interesting information. Like many others my supply of MdC alone would extend well into the future. For me, most likely, a daily shave for the next 8-10 years. Excellent quality in every scent. I will resist the urge to add a new scent but remain interested in learning more about the new offering.

The new fragrance is agrume or citrus. Here's the description from their site. Rose and vetiver are back, but the vetiver is not available or already sold out.

'The "Citrus" ... The unparalleled freshness of lemon, grapefruit, Bergamot ... What subtle notes, fragile, difficult to harmonize and fix for a perfumer when it works only with essential oils Rigorously natural. This is how Martin de Candre continues his journey by creating for you today a shaving soap called "Citrus"!

It is the foam MdC, generous, unctuous, all soft and deliciously fragrant: it's good !! ... A new shave to savor !!! ...'

Cheers, Steve
