Its turned warm in central Iowa.  And it prompted me to put aside the "winter" soaps and bring forward this small collection of "summer" soaps.

Does anyone else do a seasonal change out?  

And if you do, what is/are your warm season favorites?

Sort of. For instance, I only use B&M Diamond during baseball season, and B&M Oceana during July and August. Fine’s Snake Bite is for when the temperature is over 75 (but that’s not a hard and fast rule). Otoh, AoS Sandalwood is generally used only in Fall and Winter. Most of my other soaps are year-rounders.

I don't do seasonal changes.  In Miami it's essentially warm year-round.  Even if we had actual seasons and a significant change of weather, I would still just rotate through all my soaps evenly.

In my den the soaps & creams are at hand all year.  I do rotate some aftershave products as I'm out of room, basically swapping the balms out for menthols roughly when the clocks change.  My soaps don't feature alot of menthol, save a couple Mama Bear's "ice" flavors

No hard and fast rules.
Menthol not my first winter choice.
Summer tends to be more citrusy.
When I had 70+ soaps it was shall I say random.
Now I'm down to ~20 soaps, less random.

I have a loose seasonal swap. Although, there are some I use all year round because I enjoy them so much.  See below:

B&M Fougere Gothic                    Fougere Angelique
AOS Bourbon                              AOS Eucalyptus
B&M Promises                            Various A&E:  Asian Plum, Asian Pear, SoCal Hipster

Year round: B&M Tuesday (only on Tuesdays though, Zingari Man Wanderer, Wholly Kaw Dance of Agrumes.

At last count, I had 51 soaps - counting a case of Arko sticks and a kg brick of Cella as one each, 37 creams, and 36 balms or splashes to accompany them.

All 88 soaps and creams are random year-rounders, with the exception of Stirling Iced Pineapple (soap and splash). That one is hot weather only.

I also have a bottle of menthol M-Bomb. In hot weather, I add a drop to my loaded brush or lather bowl to ice down whatever soap or cream I am using.

I have a hard seasonal rotation.

The patchouli, vanilla, Woody, and Pine-fir-cedar, get moved out of rotation until Halloween. Citrus, floral, fruity and green pux move into rotation

We're already seeing some hot and humid weather in Arkansas so I turn to Proraso. Pre shave, cream and after shave splash, all green. After a hot day outside, a shower, a shave with Proraso, a cold beer and some AC. Life could be worse.

No seasonal rotation here, save a few really hot days where I’ll reach for menthol soaps/aftershaves. Speaking of, I noticed that Chiseled Face brought back my favorite splash…

I try to just do spring/summer and fall/winter

[Image: a2ab636a7ae84bd39609929248f48a66.jpg]
My current rotation consists of light / bright / citrus & floral note type scents

[Image: 77d16ad6ca3b269a5e3ebb2c01937232.jpg]
My other rotation consists of darker / heavier / tobacco & woody type scents with a couple xmas scents thrown in during the holidays
