We are getting ready to place another order with Manuel and we are trying to decide which scents to order. Would there be interest in matching aftershave balms? Please let me know your thoughts.

Manuel is not currently making the Tobacco but,  I will definitely look into the others.  His aftershaves are wonderful.

Ylang Ylang, Sandalo, Fougere are must have scents IMO. I have personally used 3-4 of his scents( Ylang Ylang, Lavender, Brisa De Oriente etc) and Ylang Ylang stood out. 

Want to try Sandalo & Fougere. His aftershaves are also good, light texture and get absorbed quickly. If he can be persuaded for an unscented balm , that would be awesome.

Unfortunately, Tobacco and Sandalo are unavailable, apparently due to Manuel not being able to source essential oils he's satisfied with.

I suggest selecting from the following:

- Brisa de Oriente

- Fougere

- Rosa Bourbon

- Zanzibar

- Ylang Ylang

The 2018 TSN/JabonMan LE was also a great scent, and a second run of it should be considered.

The balms sound great (aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, provitamin B5, vitamin E, allantoin, bisabolol, lactic acid, glycerin, and very light menthol).

I just received the Fougere soap, and it is incredible. Brisa de Orienta and Citrus interest me.

Thanks Ricardo. I did ask him to do a 2nd run of the TSN LE. He is a little back-up up right now but, we are going to discuss it in a month. Thanks for the other suggested scents too. I will check with Manuel.

Possibly although it is a pricey essential oil. I can always ask.

I like the Agarwood a lot.  I tried to order more a while back, and Manuel told me he would not be making it again.  He didn't say why.  I can see this as being a polarizing scent that falls into either the love it or hate it category.   I would be delighted if he makes another run of it.   

If you like the Agarwood you may like the Tierra Humeda.  It's non tallow, but performs comparably to Manuel's tallow soaps.  Both the Agarwood and Tierra Humeda have a scent I would characterize as earthy and  musty.
