Below is the email I received from MdC today. The last line hints at a new shaving soap scent in 2013.

"Dear Sir,

We thank you very much for your message and we are very touched with your attention.

Do you agree if we place your message on our online selling or on savonaraser.com?

We do the best to provide a new perfume for our shaving soap for 2013.

We wish you the best,
God bless,

Marie Amélie de Courcy

There has been a lot of talk over at B&B that it may just be a fougere scented shave soap. I'd be interested, but I don't like the scent of their fougere scented bath soap.

I have it on pretty good authority from Marie Amélie de Courcy that it will be the Martin de Candre Fougére scent.

Unlike my friend Michael, I like their Fougére bath soaps.

My fougere bath soap was very strong initially. After some use though I find myself waking into the bathroom just to sniff it. If a new scent does come I will be lined up immediately to place my order.

I think I'd be up for it, too. Despite having too many soaps already....

Sounds intriguing indeed, a new scent for a soap brand I have never tried.

I just received some samples with my order of three bath soaps today. Both of the samples (lavender and benzoin) smell very much like the fougere, very medicinal. If it's going to be that exact scent then I must pass, unfortunately.

The availability later this year of a new MdC shaving soap fragrance is indeed excellent news.

I have over 30 excellent shaving soaps and creams and Martin de Candre is my absolute favorite.

Hopefully it does not have undertones of hot tar. Biggrin

+1 that. The sample I had my wife made me throw out immediately and for once I agreed with her. Her take was industrial solvent. She is a ChemE so I had to believe her. Smile I probably would not buy any for a while since I have 3 jars to work through as it is.

One thing I have noticed through lots of use (I use it every other day on average if not more) is that the scent is lightening and the undertones are much lighter than when first opened.

I'd love a second scent. I like the smell of the small bar of Fougére I received with my order.

I also received an email today from the very kind person at MdC, and she did state that they plan to offer the fougere fragrance this year. This is the email I was really hoping to receive.

I'm in. I liked the fougere. It'd give me an opportunity to get another MdC and have both jars share the shipping cost. Though I'll probably never finish the one I have now. But I could use it more frequently.

One of my favorite references and so true in this case.

MdC could come out with a new scent called poop on a stick and I'd buy it.
