Any consideration for adding a matching aftershave at some point?

Mine came today.  If I may make a suggestion, Mickey Lee's Reunion AS would pair nicely with it.

The scents, to my nose, are really, really close.

Larry, I took the last two OLIVA in Colonia Mediterrania.  This was the first OLIVA scent, and I recall getting it the day it was released .  I'm sorry to see this line go, but understand the business reasons behind the decision.   I'll look forward to the upcoming release of Colonia Mediterrania in Select and Glide.  On a related subject, Olfactory Hue would also be nice in Select.  I consider it to be your best scent.

Bummer!  I LOVE Oliva! 

As long as Colonia Mediterrania doesn't disappear, you and I won't have any trouble, capice?

Oliva made a fantastically beautiful lather, but in my opinion the cushion of the Select line was slightly better.  Not that Oliva's was bad, by any stretch of the imagination.  It could hold its own and then some against most artisan soaps, but for me the Select was a tiny bit preferable.  

Oliva was quite an achievement, considering that most people thought a decent shave soap could not be made if olive oil was even on the ingredients list, let along atop it.

Thank you for the feedback and your purchase Ricardo! Happy to hear you enjoy Olfactory Hue, one of our favorites as well.

Haha! I got the message, loud and clear. I think I’m good.

BTW, congrats and much success on your upcoming launch. Looking forward to it!

Very nice to hear an appreciated and informed view of OLIVA, thank you! Development of the base was a long labor of love but well worth the effort.

Today I received the last two of the Oliva in Colonia Mediterrania.  Oliva is an excellent vegan soap.  It is one of only two soaps in my rotation which are not tallow, the other one being LPL Apricot.

I’ve been using Honeywood this week - fantastic soap. The trio of Select, Olivia, and Glide are a veritable hat-trick of impressive design.

Ricardo, is this scent similar to Razorock XXX?

That' a good question Brad, but I can't comment on it because I've never used RazoRock XXX.  Perhaps someone who has used both can post his thoughts.

I don't think the smell of XXX (Razorock) or even AdP Colonia smell similar to CRSW (oliva soap base and scent) Colonia Mediterrania. I think CRSW smells more high end (simple formula using high quality ingredients) soapy and lighter in the citrus notes. It is very clean smelling with a more rounded fragrance overall.

I think XXX is really high in the citrus plus the mid floral notes and base. Both are nice smelling to my nose but CRSW is a more artfully crafted soap and the scent is bit less bold and more complimentary to the experience shaving with it.

I’m pretty bummed. I had been holding off on buying a citrus paradisi tub. I guess I waited too long to restock my den. I absolutely love that scent. One of the finest grapefruit scents out there.

It's an amazing scent that I could use every day. My final tub will make it to mid summer.

The discontinuation of the Oliva line is a bummer for many. However, Larry indicated the Oliva scents would be released in the Select and Glide lines.  You may still get your Citrus Paradisi.
