I really enjoy Razorock Classic. I put in a big order (really hate paying shipping - keep buying until it's free shipping) including the classic which is almost all used up. I noticed the scent descriptions were scarce. Does anyone know of a link I may have missed? Some are self explanatory but nervous wreck and third eye, forget it. I ordered "mudder focker" out of the new artisan series. I would have picked more soaps but wasn't sure which way to steer.

Third Eye is Sandalwood. I'm not sure what Nervous Wreck smells like. Mudder Focker is my new favorite RazoRock Soap. The scent and performance are both top shelf (as is the name hehe)

I believe the nervous wreck is a vetiver scent.

XXX and Mudder Focker are the best scents and best performers at least to me. I hope to have plenty of both soon enough.

Well I chose the MF over the XXX. I wanted to try an artisan soap more. I didn't want to get hooked on the XXX and be bent out of shape not being able to get more later. Darn'd if you do, darn'd if you don't. (still ordered a limited run soap)
Not sure I want to admit this but it may help someone else. I used google translater on some of the RazoRock soap names to figure out what the scents could be. I'm not into flowery scents so I didn't write them all down. (mistake yes, hind sight)

to me RR classic is still the best. I have not tried them all, but have smelled quite a few (between me and a couple other wet shavers at work).

Right now I'm loving 888, very clean scent and the best performing RazoRock I have tried (along with the other Shea Butter soap, King Louis).

sorry guys, XXX was not for me. Too strong and Arkoish (to my nose at least), not a pleasant smell, to industrial cleaner smelling and the family did not like it either, so it had to go. If AdP smells anything like this (I believe them to be the same), I have absolutely no desire to try that one either.

Are you talking about Acqua di Parma? I haven't smelled xxx but the Acqua di Parma smells really good.

Yes, Acqua Di Parma....if you enjoy the scent of AdP, then you will most likely love XXX scent and performance is (was for me) top notch. many say and i've heard it hinted at, that it's identical.

like a few above have said, there are rumours it's the last remaining stock and once it's gone, it's gone, not to be made again.

Well the ADP smells nothing like arko does. So if that is what the xxx smells like then I doubt I'll like it.

smelled like Arko "To My Nose". i was going off memory for that comparison. it's a much more complex scent then Arko, very citrusy, just wasn't for me.

Yes, XXX is citrusy, but not at all like ARKO to my nose. More complex and higher end. It's nice. Great performing cream.

Hmmmmm, I have about forty soaps/creams and counting. Let me see if the fine gentleman at Italian barber can squeeze this in with my order that I placed yesterday.

I have not tried much of the Razorock soft soaps, but the XXX I was PIFed a while ago is pretty good when it comes to both lather and scent.

It's a hard scent to describe but it smells a bit like cologne to me. I'm admittedly not good at scents.
