After completing our master bathroom renovation it was time for me to thin out and organize my rather embarrassingly large collection of shave gear and toiletries. This gave me plenty of time to reflect on some of my most enjoyable items and one thing that struck me was my immense collection of CRSW products. I found an old tub or two of Original soap, dusty jar and faded scents but all in all appear to be very useable after all this time. I have a large collection of Select, Oliva and now the new Glide along with lotions, balms and aftershaves. Thinking of all the years that CRSW has been a rock solid artisan/vendor I thought it would be nice to start an appreciation thread. There are few artisan or other shave companies I can think of that provide the caliber of products, customer service/support and listen to and then respond to their customers as well as Larry and Audrey at CRSW.

Seeing as how CRSW has multiple soap formulations and a extensive selection of aftershave products I think a centralized repository where ALL things CRSW can be discussed and appreciated is long overdue. Please join in and contribute to create a positive and lasting tribute to one of the best shave companies in existence.

I have a large collection of soaps and creams. As such, I have yet to finish a container of soap/cream. I purchased the CRSW Glide Olfactory Hue, back in November. It’s almost gone, like maybe 3 shaves left. Excellent soap, excellent scent, excellent customer service. I will buy another container when it’s available (along with a backup of Morning Ghost).

I have several favorites (citron, Savon no 1) and hoping some come back stock like bergamot and bay.

Wish there were more than just four scents in the Glide formula.

I'd like to see Olfactory Hue, which I consider to be Larry's best scent, available in Select.

Out of curiosity, why in Select vs Glide?

That's a good question Tony.  Select and Glide have different consistencies.  Glide is a shaving cream soap, and it's softer than Select.  I think the two soaps have to be loaded differently.  I like Glide a lot, but it would be nice to have the option of the Olfactory Hue scent in the firmer Select base.

I guess it would just be nice to even out the lines more. Select already has (and has had) dozens of scents.

Thanks Ricardo. Almost like comparing QCS croap vs soap. Both were / are great products.

Question on the Glide soap. Do you bloom or use dry? I've tried both.

Dry.  Glide loads so quickly without additional water that I can't imagine a benefit to also blooming it.

+1 No need to bloom, just load.

Anyone else notice the different ingredients on Spring Select? Looks like goats milk and different base from other Selects.

I picked up a couple of pucks of the new Spring scent. I believe Larry said that this is the same scent as Prato Verde, but the blog text seems to contradict that.

In either case, Prato Verde was similar to Creed's Green Irish Tweed.

Spingtime LE is not the same scent as Prato Verde.

Prato Verde will be making a return soon though.
