I like doing speick superlather...make the lather with cream in a bowl, use the speick stick for wet face, and then combine the two! It’s amazing, and the speick aftershave is tops as far as post shave feel!

Sipping Limincello amongst the olive trees, while inhaling that salty Calabria air...sounds like a winner to me!

Hard to beat AdP Barbiere (Colonia scent), the new version is the old scent with as best I can tell, the same excellent performance as the Collezione Barbiere.

I just bought a pot after a sample was mailed to me.  Smells so good!  I can't wait for it to arrive!

I'm so glad you posted this!  I had no idea the Colonia scent was back!  I definitely will acquire some of this!

Thanks to nervosa1901, I too have found the best high-end soap to be Sē'bŭm Gold products. The best skincare and closest shaves I have encountered to date.

I must agree as well with Christian.

Sebum Gold soaps are outstanding in terms of performance as well as simplicity and quality of ingredients.  Distinctive packaging and presentation seal the deal nicely.

Another top one for me is Tallow + Steel, for similar reasons.


I'm a little confused by all the variations in the Sebum Lines, could you gents give me a little help in choosing which to try?  I'm not worried about prices as I've recently sold some gear, which funds other purchases, so let me have it...hahaha

I tried the Colonia, I was given a generous sample of this. I wasn't that satisfied. Maybe it's me, I had high expectations from this product...

Nervosa and Ravi are the subject matter experts on the sebum lines so it’s best to let them chime in or just shoot em your questions.

Unfortunately, this is such a subjective subject and Sē'bŭm products are more about the natural ingredients and how they play with your skin than their scents, at least for me. My favorite, to date, is their Sē'bŭm Latte since it works best with my skin and results are long-lasting. They sell samples to try.

Also, if you concerned about skincare I find Hemingway Accoutrements' Age Defending Face Serum Elixir and Post Shave Relief to be excellent. The scent of the aftershave is the best scent that I have witnessed to date, but their shaving soap falls short on slickness, glide and protection.

The I Coloniali Rhubarb AS balm matches the Mango Oil soap perfectly and is still available. And it’s one of the best that there is.
