I can almost agree with this statement.  I tried one not too long ago which I believe was called Sea Kelp.  I really didn't care for the scent...it really smelled like sea kelp.  But it's soap and the scents usually don't linger too long so I went ahead and used it.  Honestly, by the time the bar was nearly gone, I had grown to like the scent

That has happened to me with various scents, and not just from Stirling. Smile

I would say I like a 200-250gram in rectangle bar or oval since my hands are large and fingers are long.
I usually split bars such as Soap Commander or Stirling Soap Company in half. Just makes them easier to handle, I feel. The downside is that if your shower or tub has a metal grate type of holder for the soap, the small bar will eventually begin to fall through the cracks.

I forgot to mention that Catie's Bubbles makes awesome bar soap as well with some creative scents. I do enjoy a good smelling soap in the morningBig Grin

Got started on a Body Shop argan oil bath soap bar a few days ago. So far, so good.

While I do try to use a bath soap until its done, I will occasionally get soap ADD especially if the scent of the current bar is weak/absent. I've had a couple of poor scent performers lately and what I'll do is relegate them to hand washing duty where scent isn't as much of an issue. On the flip side there are some soaps, Stirling Barbershop comes to mind, that I'll use to the last wafer thin moment they smell so good.

I agree Mark. Sometimes I'll have 2 or 3 bars in the shower and rotate them like shave soaps. Jeez, what is wrong with us? Haha

does the PdP No. 63 have some oud in it? I swear I'm getting hints of it, after using it...

Might have to try that one. I just ordered a couple of interesting bars of Soapy Bathman bar soap from Canadian Blade Co. New releases that sound like they will smell good.
