Any favourites?  

I want to try Nature,  and, Traditional.  Do they make a sandalwood scent?

Both great soaps. I would prefer Oud Santal. In fact, I do prefer Oud Santal (sandalwood).

It's excellent, but currently unavailable.

I didn't know that. That is truly unfortunate. It's my favorite of the three, although I just received Traditionnel today at the office. (As you know. Smile) I love LPL soaps. I do wish the Abricot had a bit of a stronger scent.

Oud-Santal.  Although currently sold out, you may be able to spot one on BST, or you could post in WTB.  You may get lucky, and this soap is worth the effort.  I'm working through my first tin of it, and I have two backups.

Okay, cool.  I want to, definitely, try the Rose, Oud-Santal, when available, again, Nature, and, Traditionnel. That should be enough, to start with, at any rate.

It was a Limited Edition, and I don't know if there will be another run of it.  That will be for Phil to decide.

Very nice soaps, I've tried both the Limited edition Santal and Apricot. Not a big fan of either scent so I sold both.
All in all very nice soaps but in my opinion a step below Italian soaps like Valobra, Nuavia, I coloniali, SMN ect...
Which again in my opinion are the best soaps anywhere!

Smells like my spice pantry. 

I have the Traditional, Apricot, Rose and Fougere.   I love the soap performance in par with MdC, MdC is little more slicker to me.  LpL may have a tad better cushion.  

LPL scents to me are not top notch, they are one dimensional and not complex. And in the case of the apricot its very faint but smells the best to me out of the 4 I have.  MdC fougere crushes LpL fougere in scent wise.   This is all subjective and only my take. I would like to try the ceder and other offerings but I think I would be let down in scent department.

Without the Oud-Santal being available, my recommendation is 1) Apricot 2) Rose 3) Cedre Patchouli.  All three are excellent performers for me.  However, you can't go wrong with any of these.  I like the scents of the LPL soaps.....simple yet elegant.

I'll second this suggestion. It is sold out but, another small batch is on the way and should be here in a day or two.
