I tried Asian Plum for the first time tonight - I’d say it’s a hit in my den! I love the smell! Not too strong, but not faint either. Soft fruit w a touch of resin to add a little mystery. It’s definitely a keeper for me.

I haven't reallyfound anything I don't like...

Uno, Vetiver Magnifique, Revolution, are all excellent.  Only one I wasn't a big fan of was Portrait in Soho!

Thinking about SoCal Hipster & Summer Fig as my next purchases.

I have tried several of his soaps, including Asian Pear, St. Barts, Club Imperial, and Chasing the Dragon, and Summer Fig, and have enjoyed them all. I find the soaps to be on par with most other artisan soaps, but Tier 2 and not Tier 3. I'll continue to use them for their excellent scents and very good, but not outstanding in my opinion, lather.

Great soaps.
I enjoy the L'Orange Verte and St Barts.
Both are great summer soaps?

A friend had sent me samples of A&E Kingdom soap and a.s..
An odd scent of tree gum or some overaged spice. Not a complex scent, more a simple one. Not unpleasant, but more what I would have expected from a wood care wax.

When I had my first shave with it I had a severe burning sensation during second pass and stopped it.

I had tried B&M Le Grand Chypre the day before which had given me an impressive rash (same with Leviathan).
So maybe Kingdom would not have hurt me without Chypre the day before.

I do not want to accuse both products for not agreeing with my skin as obviously there are users without problems.

But I personally will stay away from both soapmakers.

Only tried Asian Plum personally, performance was good but I really struggled with the very strong scent... Fabric softener! Specifically this one, smells identical (should know, it's the only one Mrs Rohleder buys!)
