Gents,

Admittedly I know very little about these soaps...except they are Cold War era, when there was a West Germany and and East Germany, which makes these soaps unique.  I have never seen them or heard of them.  They are survivors!

There appears to be a sandalwood, a rose, and a tobacco puck!

Does anyone have any further information about them?  How do they smell...how do they lather up and perform during the shave?

Do these pucks bring back any memories for anyone?

Thanks!


Vr

Matt

Are they shave soaps or body soaps? Either way they are quite the find!

Hello Sir! I love your rose soap...big fan of the soap and the whole story about your daughter and the science project!

So I am told shave soaps, but I can’t be certain! I cannot find anything on the internet, and I was hoping that perhaps someone from Germany or someone who was stationed there during the Cold War might remember!

I think relics from before the wall fell are interesting!

If you or anyone else has any information, I am very curious! Perhaps these are unobtainables from a bygone era that time is starting to forget!

By the packaging and size/shape I'm guessing that these are body soaps.
