I was just browsing her website and stumbled upon a new shave soap scent (earl grey). I ordered a puck of it along with bay rum, and tea time. It's made with lanolin plus sheep's milk. Calani soaps are pretty much on the top of my list, hopefully this one is a great performer like the others.

Calani and Jabonman are my fav artisan soaps.And no tallow on them.
The Earl Grey sounds good to me.

I was going to place an order in a week or two then I saw the new scent and couldn't help myself. I pretty much have all except for two or three scents.

Yes, so now two of her soaps contain lanolin, the oriental plum and earl grey.

Ice angel, too? Does that have a menthol type feeling? I'm not a big fan of menthol soaps.

I think that's the idea, but I haven't tried it to be honest.

Ice Angel will not freeze your face. Menthol is not even shown in the ingredients list, although Cathy mentioned at Gut Rasiert that she uses a small percentage as perfume in this soap.

Some guys were really disappointed as the soap has no cooling effect but she is cautious regarding possible irritations due to menthol.

I love Earl Gray scent but don't care for the tea. This soap sounds perfect for me!

Earl Grey tea has been the inspiration for both my QCS #3, with Bergamot, Lime and Rose, and the TFS Rose Bergamotto Neroli.

Wonderful scents!

I also like Calani a lot, so this one is on the 'must order' list.

She could use peppermint essential oils instead of menthol crystals.

I received the Earl grey today along with three others and it has a strong citrus scent. I like it! This is going in the summer/spring soap rotation.

Menthol, and cedar with glistening berries and blossoms to the bet. heavenly ingredients like mango butter and lanolin shaving soap make this
into something special.

This was on her site, it doesn't say it in the ingredients list but it's in the description.
