Took a ~9-10 month break from being active here and now have that every so familiar itch to try a few new soaps/ creams.

What new products/artisans have emerged during my hiatus that I need to try?

Wholly Kaw (especially the new donkey milk formulations).  

On a scale of A (-scent is the most important aspect of a shaving soap-) to Z (-performance is the most important aspect of a shaving soap-), my own predilection is somewhere around X or Y. That said, of all the shaving soaps that I have used over the 45 years of our marriage, only ONE has invariably caused my wife to comment, “Hmm.  That smells good,” every time I shave with it:  Wholly Kaw Fern Bouquet.  And it also has the level of performance that I seek out,.

The new Asylum tallow soaps from BullGoose are great as to both performance and scent.  They are all worth getting, but I particularly like Royal Fougere and Old Virginia.

^ Interesting, I should try that.


L&L bison soaps are good, so is Wholly Kaw's Donkey Milk formula. Sudsy Soapery is also nice and I am hearing good things about Turtleship as well.

Yes it is.  There is a long thread on it in the Soaps & Creams section.  I currently have and like the Tobacco, Agarwood and Sandalo.  I have a sample of the Ylang Ylan and will probably add that on my next order. The Fougere is also a lovely scent.

Not mentioned yet - WhollyKaw has updated their tallow soaps with donkey milk and hops extract. It's on my short list as his original tallow formula was very good. The latest one in that line is "King of Oud" which will be available for pre-order tomorrow. Notes:

Quote:Top notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Clary Sage, Rose, Aldehydes and Pink Pepper

Middle notes: Angelica, Rosewood, Galbanum
Base notes: Agarwood or Oud, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Patchouli and Amber

Wow. How did I walk right past that? Fougere Bouquet is also one of my favorites!
