Razorock Tuscan Oud.  Don't need aftershave or cologne after using it either.

Compared to most of you I haven't used many different soaps. That said, I always enjoy the scent of Tabac every time I come back to it.

Nuavia - Verde
Saponificio Varesino - Felce aromatica

Barrister & Mann - Latha Oceana
Shannon’s Soaps - lakeshore drive (my new favorite aquatic scent)

For me, based upon scent alone, one stands above all others:

Creed Green Irish Tweed.  It would, however, not rate as well in an overall shaving score.

In close second would be anything from Saponificio Varesino.

Honourable mention would be Shaver Heaven Arctic Mango - who knew that mango, peach, citrus and musk would work so brilliantly?

I may be mistaken but I don't believe the OP is looking for specific brands or blends but simply sandalwood or lavender  or lime. That kind of thing. 

And I  don't have one.

I just shaved with WK Italian Holiday for the first time yesterday and it's a wonderful scent.  Definitely will crack my list of faves.

I pair the Italian Holiday with my favorite Tom Ford’s Tuscan Leather. The two smell very similarly and keep me upbeat all day long!

Thanks for the recommendation.  I ordered a decant to try it out.

Love the top two choices...MDC...fougere, Vetiver, and Agrumes...almost an impossible decision...but I have to go with Agrumes...especially during the summertime!

Matt, can you describe the scent of the MdC Agrumes?  I've been looking for a new citrus, and I love MdC Fougere so much this one intrigues me.  TIA.

It may not be a fancy soap, but the scent of Noble Otter's Lonestar is absolutely wonderful. The soft leather with lemon and sage bring me back to my time living in the southwest. Beautiful scent.
