I did not try Sapone di Paolo's original formulation.   How did it stack up versus other soaps?

On a side note, I do appreciate that the scents are more obviously named.  That will be simpler for potential customers.

If you like vegan soaps, IMO they were at/near the top.

Agrume (again, IMO) is an all timer as far as scent goes. I don't know if it makes sense, but his scents always smelled clean/fresh (not synthetic at all).

I ordered mine from Maggard's and I received them today.  I went with the Agrume (lime & basil), smells fresh and awesome.

I ordered the Cedar, Vetiver and Sweetgrass directly from Paolo.  Looking forward to trying the new tallow base, as well as this particular scent.

I tested a puck of unscented soap, mostly focussing on slickness for straights, and was very impressed. I've always enjoyed his vegan soaps, but I think his tallow soap is a significant improvement and am looking forward to using it. I'm looking forward to other's impressions.

My Cedar, Vetiver and Sweetgrass shipped today,  the same day I ordered it.  I may be posting my thougths on it this weekend.

I've ordered the Amber, Patchouli and Oak and Sicilian Lemon. They are in the USPS mill and should arrive pretty quick as I'm about a mail day from Charleston.

I got a shave in this morning. Another shave set for tomorrow morning with a different brush and different blade

Using a WW Synthetic, Fine bowl and ATT SE had a great shave this morning. I think you will be surprised at the amount of lather this soap builds. Scent changes once lathered up.

My Cedar, Vetiver and Sweetgrass is caught in USPS delays, and will not get to me until Monday at the earliest.  Six days to travel 585 miles from Charleston to Miami.  Frustrating, because I regularly receive items from BullGoose in California two days after I order them.

I hate hearing this.  I bust my butt to get orders out as fast as I possibly can, and USPS wants to have a smoke break.  So frustrating.

Paolo, I know you sent out the order very quickly.  This is all on USPS.  They deliver on a timely basis much of the time, but periodically mess up big time.

I hope the scent doesn't change too much. The lemon has a nice strong scent in the tub (at least to my nose). Struck me as a very pleasant summer scent.

I'm using a sample tub from the Maggard meet up. I got lemon pledge off the sample. Nothing bad. A vibrant lemon. For me as the soap lathered it went from vibrant to more of a smelling the lemon with the rind on. Like being in front of a box of lemons. Not better or worse than the tub. Just different. For me it mellowed out into a more organic scent. 

I don't have the splash (yet).

I got the scent-formerly-known-as-Pulito, and the performance of the new base is terrific! Hats off to you Paolo for making an already good soap better. Nice rich lather, better skin conditioning feel than before. As expected, the scent is mild but very nice. I tried to grab the lemon too, but Maggard was out before I got my order in.
