I use Van Der Hagen Luxury unscented soap in my rotation. I once melted a puck and stirred in Old Spice after shave. It smelled great but the scent left the puck after a while.

I decided to try a different approach. My wife gave me a pack of Brut bath soap for Christmas. We both like the scent.

I decided to use a food grater and combine some of the Brut with the VDH. Since the Brut has tallow it can not be melted.

I grated about 2 ounces of the Brut bar.

At this point i considered melting the VDH and stirring in the grated Brut. But I wanted to use a pewter mug as my final container and i did not want to loose soap by using a microwave safe bowl and transferring.

So I grated the entire VDH puck.

Then i mixed them together and pressed into my mug.

I get a good lather from the VDH and great smell from the Brut. I am very pleased with the results.
