I will soon use up a tub of Tabula Rasa Dark Lavender. I love it. It gives me great consistent shaves. I am going order another Dark Lavender but would like to get another scent. Would another scent effect performance of the cream? They have a few scents I would like to try Oilbanum(Frankincense), Vetiver & Tangerine, Cream (description from manufacture is a very slight but interesting scent) and Unscented. Has anyone tried any these Tabula Rasa scents?

The Olibanum is really good, with a great soft scent and fine lathering qualities. Highly recommended.

I have tried the Green Tea and the Vetiver/Tangerine,as well as the Dark Lavender.
All of them are brilliant scents,but the Vetiver/Tangerine is maybe my fav,even before the Dark Lavender.

Vetiver/Tangerine smells close enough to Creed Original Vetiver : a clean,fresh,herbal,"green",vetiver scent.

The Tea one is fresh too,but more like the Provence Sante Green Tea shaving soap.

Dark Lavender is that : deep notes of spicy lavender

Great stuff,my friend!

Leesrazors in the States or direct but I cannot find the link at the moment after a Google search. Sorry.
I do recall the website being near impossible to navigate if one doesn't speak German. Many have just contacted them directly to order.
I'm not sure why I am not finding the current link for their website.....

Edit: http://1001seife.de/ Direct.

And a great post by Andrew:

I have been emailing them through their contact page. I received an email from them with the scents available and costs. It's a little slower process but there are more scents available.

It is frankincense. "Olibanum is characterized by a balsamic-spicy, slightly lemon, and typical fragrance of incense, with a slightly conifer-like undertone." See more here:

I am with you Johnny, looks like it's the only way to get it.
Anyone know the shipping charges? Does it make sense for a mini group by?

I ordered 3 tubs today from the maker herself in Germany. Shipping was 9 euros( $11) to USA. My package weight was 650g. Below 500g shipping would have been 5 euro ($7).

I'm waiting for her to bill my paypal. Two scents, the vetiver & tangerine and the cream scent.

I almost got the Cream scent. I would be interested in what it smells like. I bought Dark Lavender, Olibanum, Vetiver & Tangerine. She was very easy to deal with. She said my package will shipped tomorrow.

The email I used was xeniatrost@aol.com. She sent a email with all the scents available prices , shipping cost and their pay pal address.
