They can be a challenge to lather relatively speaking i.e. not as easy as other soaps, but with a little tinkering in terms of technique these challenges are not insurmountable. Once the right lather technique has been achieved, the rewards are a wonderful scent, great performance, and nice skin conditioning.
My top 3 at this time (subject to change):
1. Mysore Sandalwood
2. Sandalwood Rose
3. Bay Rum

The primary scents I get are patchouli and cinnamon, I know there are other scent in there, but
I don't have the most refined schnoz and always miss the smaller nuances when it comes to fragrance blends.
The fragrance as a whole is amazing, very masculine and potent.

Cedar & Sage
I can keep going but any of those 5 are fabulous.

Both scents are nice. The Irish Traveler smells almost identical to QCS GIT and the Rosalimone smells like a nice masculine floral and is very fresh.
I enjoy the lather very much, but don't find them to be any more or less moisturizing than many other brands. I'm sure I'll end up getting some more in different scents sooner rather than later.

My favourite are:
* Sardinian Honey
* Bay Rum
* Mysore Sandalwood
i have yet to try the Sandalwood/Rose, but i cannot see myself not liking it!
Too many great scents, so you might as well go for a sampler pack of each!

Can you tell me more about the Sardinian Honey? Is it simply honey or something more complex?

* Well, gentlemen, it has a very strong, homemade, dark honey scent and the puck itself is a brown colour. It is not the commercial, light honey scent prevalent in most stores, but as mentioned, good, homemade dark honey scent typical of what is made in southern Europe. It loads quite "sticky" because of the honey, so you have to take that into account and not use too much water. The honey scent is dominant, but there is some other scent(s) there. Possibly a citrus scent of some kind. i don't know what else to mention to you other than that it works just as well as Michelle's other scents, but it is a bit stickier when loading and applying. The best part of this soap is the scent. It smells wonderfully and i think i may have found my favourite scent that Michelle offers. It really makes all of my brushes smell scrumptious and there are times i am tempted to take a bite of the darn soap!
