Just stocked up on 4 tins of Barbiere Sapone to complement my Fragile Confusion and Olfactory Hue stash.

My Select soaps will remain in rotation though because aside from their performance, I like the variety of scents that complement the Glide scents.

Phenomenal products, both; simply phenomenal.

Thank you so much for giving your thoughts! I really appreciate it. It goes without saying but I will anyway, our friends and supporters are the BEST!

I’m sorry I didn’t reply sooner! Just saw your post.

Once I'm done with my several 100's of soaps, after I'm dead and burried, I will focus on the 2 best soaps brands out there and only buy products from them.

They are currently:

CRSW
Eufros/Jabonman

Looks like they completed a restock of what was sold out.  I am eager for Barbershop to be added back to the inventory.

Got in American Barbershop last week in the new base. So happy they brought that one back! One of the finest barbershop scents and right up there with Mikes.

I dug some of my old CRSW soaps out from the shelf’s yesterday.

Had to throw out an unopened Oliva Honey as it looked weird.

But thankfully the rest seemed ok after one of the hottest driest summers in 100+ years in Denmark.

Used an unused pot of CRSW Oliva Colonia Mediterranean for the first time yesterday.

I forgot just how fantastic CRSW soaps are. No Tallow in Oliva, yet amazing slickness.
I just used Nuavia Green, I Colonia Mango, B&M Seville new version, Mike’s Lime, Tabula Rasa Dark Lavender, LPL Fougere Tallow, SMN V3, Czech & Speak O&C, Saponificio Vare Black edition and ADP Colonia in the last 2-3 week or so, and 110% honestly CRSW Oliva Colonia is now officially the best shaving soap I have ever used in my life.

Lathers like a dream.
Does not dry out since you can load enough water into the lather.
Protection is excellent.
Glide is outstanding.
Cushion is perfect.

10/10. Perfection. And it’s discontinued.
As said Eufros/Jabonman and CRSW will be the only 2 soap makers I buy from, when I’m done using up my couple 100’s shaving soaps in my collection.

For what it's worth, I always thought that the lather from Oliva looked a lot better than it actually shaved.  It appeared to be the best lather on planet earth, and it felt like the best lather on planet earth when I put it on my face, and slickness was always good, but I feel like cushion was not as good as it should have been.  

It was a remarkable soap, considering the fact that most soapers stay far away from olive oil because of its well known reputation of killing a lather with bubbles and transience.  Larry really showed that a good soap could be crafted with a lot of olive oil in it.  And the post-shave face feel was remarkable.  But cushion, in my opinion, was lacking just enough that I wouldn't put it into my top 5.
