Gents,

My favorite soap/cream pairings are below...what are yours...odd or otherwise? These are in no particular order:

1. Martin De Candre Fougere soap with Sebum Blue postshave serum

2. I coloniali Mango soap with Hemingway Accoutrements aftershave

3. Castle Forbes Lime Cream with Sebum Lime postshave serum

4. Santa Maria Novella cream with the matching Santa Maria Novella Tobacco Toscano aftershave

5. Ralph Lauren Safari soap with the matching Ralph Lauren Safari aftershave

6. Nuavia Blu or Simpson Bay Rum cream with Small Batch Shave Tonic aftershave

7. RazoRock P.160 Soap with Penhaligons Blenheim Bouquet aftershave

8. Any of the Stirling soaps and matching aftershave...I particularly like Sharp Dressed Man, Executive Man, Iced Pineapple, and their Almond sets.

9. Art of Shaving Sandalwood (tallow) with anything...pretty soft fragrance that doesn’t intrude upon other aftershave products

Well, I rotate those around, soaps & A/S's, and have never thought of pairings  .. with all the software I've managed to accumulate it would likely be a fool's errand here.   But, signing into the thread to see if someone can change my mind, or likelier put confusion there

Matt, try the SMN body cream as an AS balm. It’s balm consistency and has the tobacco toscano scent which hangs around a little while. And it’s 250ml.

I only use an essential oil mix of Vetiver/Bergamot, so it has to go well with all of my scented soaps. Smile
Nonetheless, it does go particularly well with Mystic Water's Vetiver/Oakmoss and Bergamot/Cedar/Juniper.

I like to pair Alt Innsbruck with D R Harris Marlborough
MDC Vetiver with Guerlain Vetiver
MDC Fougere....still looking, no favorites
Vintage Williams with Spanish Aqua Velva
MWF with vintage Dominica Bay Rum
Boellis Panama 1924 with Panama 1924 aftershave
LPL Oud Neroli with the same aftershave

Sometimes it's just a splash of Humphries Organic Witch Hazel, and some Nivea sensitive balm and good to go.
