The 2018 TSN/JabonMan LE soaps started shipping from BullGoose this past Tuesday, and have begun arriving today (Thursday).  I expect this soap to generate a lot of commentary, and it makes sense to consolidate it all in one thread.  Therefore, please post all reviews, comments and photos regarding the soap in this thread.

I haven't used the soap yet, but I've been checking out its scent since I opened the package.  One has to use a soap to get a true sense of the scent.  However, based on what I sense so far, this is another of Manuel's masterful, interesting, and complex blends.  The vetiver is apparent, but it's immediately followed by a fascinating cascade of other scents which I'll have to spend a few shaves sorting out. 

Only 100 of these were produced, and this scent will be a JabonMan exclusive for TSN.  The initial delivery of 80 is already sold out.  However, Phil posted in the Shave Nook Group on Facebook that the final 20 tubs are expected to arrive tomorrow (Friday).

Awesome!  Eufros is my favorite soap!  Love Gea, Tobacco, Lime-Spices, Fougere, East Breeze, Zanibar, Wet Earth and Rose Bourbon.  I have 10 or 12 tins.  Absolutely love his balms as well. His balms are the best on the market in my opinion!  If this one wasn't a little pricey with shipping I would get it but I am looking forward to the board's thoughts on this one!!

just received mine - it has a nice scent that to my nose is very similar to Grooming Dept. "Aether" - not exact, but similar overall combination of notes.  This is really good soap, lathers well and shaves well.

Earlier today I was thinking that this soap is somewhat similar to CRSW's Morning Ghost.  They both share some earthy, green notes from the vetiver.  Well, Skinny Rogers (Lance) had already figured that out, and posted this great photo today in The Shave Nook Group on Facebook, as well as in our SOTD.  We'll done Lance!

I'm using just a splash of cucumber witch hazel and getting the subtle scent for hours after shaving. So good!

I've been using this soap extensively, and it continues to impress me as to both performance and scent.  It's an exceptional limited edition offering.

This is my first JabonMan soap and I'm very impressed. Easy to load, holds lots of water, slick and cushioned lather (all similar to Mike's) and I really enjoy the scent (from memory, it's somewhat similar to LASS Bespoke#1 but brighter, more vetiver/citrus). It's been perfect for relaxed weekend shaves, we'll see how to does for more rushed weekday ones. Also, the simple packing/branding is great, very understated.

I've wanted to try JabonMan for awhile but never got around to it due to shipping/inconvenience. Hopefully more soaps will become regular offerings at BullGoose.
