I am a big fan of the CRSW premium/select soap base. IMO the performance is top notch. I think the scents quality is also very good but I find the scent strength weak. For example, I would rate Tropicos as 3/10 in scent strength. I prefer strongly scented soaps (6-8/10). What are some of the stronger CRSW soaps in their premium/select line? Thanks.

Mark, I consider the Sandalwood to have a strong scent.

That is great news.  I like Sandalwood and I understand Larry's is exceptional.

Interesting question. I'd rate the following 6-7 on scent strength (and I like more robust offerings myself): citurus, limenthol, American barbershop, bergemont & bay, sandalwood, Puro fresco. If you're willing to venture outside the select line, honeywood Oliva is fantastic in performance, scent, & scent-strength.

I've never had a problem with scent strength in the CRSW soaps I've had.  Citrus was plenty of scent.  Citron has plenty, as well, probably about 7/10 or so.  The Oliva I had was also fairly strongly scented.  

None of these was overwhelming, mind you.  I feel like the scent strength on all of these was just about perfect.

I think the scent strength is pretty robust and I have most of them. Even the last two V1 in the back of the cabinet are still going strong. I think they are a perfect level of scent.

There are very few items (from any brand) that I would prefer a stronger scent. I can't really even think of one off the top of my head.
More often I'd prefer the maker toned down the scent. Let's keep shaving products for shaving and thus skin-friendly.

Agreed, this is why I prefer essential oil scents, smell amazing and natural when shaving but go away after the shave and let my cologne take over.

Although not out yet, I find Spiced Amber to have a stronger scent

I have been thinking about your post. What I find interesting is that none of the ones you mentioned were part of the original "Premium" line-up that used EO only. I wonder if this is a coincidence.

I don't think so, as I've had some in both original & select (citrus, & American barbershop). Couldn't detect a difference in scent strength. Really, these were just my favorites from CRSW, though all the scents I've tried have been 6 or above I'm strength. That said, I haven't used any of the new scents like tropicos - though I have re-purchased old favorites in the reformulation.
