I wrote to Manuel at Eufros and asked him if he planned to make any more tobacco scented shaving soap.  He replied:

Hello,

The truth is that at the moment I have not found a smell of tobacco that I like.  In a very short time I lost several emblematic soaps because of the impossibility of getting the essential oil that I used for a long time, and I have not found any substitutes yet.

I'll keep looking, but it's complicated.  I will make some new scent, but it will be after summer.

A hug
Manuel

I had a similar conversation with our friend regarding the tobacco and the rose bourbon. He is very much the pleasant gentlemen! I am eagerly awaiting what he makes next, but there is so much great stuff to frett too much!

Have a great rest of the weekend!

I was aware of this and it's a disappointment.  There are many tobacco soaps on the market, but I find most of them so artificially sweet that the true tobacco scent is lost.  Manuel's was one of the exceptions and one of my two favorite tobacco soaps.  The other one, which is still available, is Asylum Old Virginia.

Yeah tobacco scents are difficult.  They are pretty much all fragrance oils. I have found one that I like called Santa's Pipe, but there is a lot to choose from.  I agree that a lot of them are way too sweet.  This one seems to be a somewhat a tough scent to nail down.

I got a Santa's Pipe sample from you, but I have not gotten around to shaving with it yet.  The smell is very appealing to me, though, and should provide a pleasing experience.  The Midnight in Tunisia is brilliant!  I still need to get around to shaving with the others.
