 I'm too enjoy different people and the forums too.
  I'll keep an eye out here , see how many we can get involved. Sounds good here though.

I already have quite a few vendors on board for the other passaround and I wouldn't think that they'd be opposed to me getting them exposure on two forums instead of one so I'll include many of them in this one as I already have their products on hand.

If there are any obscure unknown vendors that you guys know of that are making some really exceptional soaps please feel free to mention them. I won't share who I've contacted until they're on board, as I don't want to shame anyone for not participating, but I'd be happy to reach out an invitation to anyone you guys feel is worthy of an invite. A small percentage do decline but most are very receptive to participating.

For me, part of the fun of this is discovering some of the unknown really exceptional soaps so feel free to share some suggestions.

Here's along shot, do you get any unscented soaps?

I generally tell the vendors to avoid sending unscented soaps as they don't tend to get picked by the participants.

Bummer, unscented is all I'd be interested in. Well it will be a good read anyway, looking forward to the thread.

Generally, even just following the thread can be advantageous. Some reviewers are fantastic at painting a clear enough picture that actual use seems unnecessary.

I meant bummer regarding participating. I am winding down using scented soaps just don't seem to be interested. The thread should be useful for unscented acquisitions by maker anyway.

We were planning on sending our unscented soap, No. 13.

I have too much soap right now, gave away two tins of LPL last week and my son won't take anymore soap from me.

Nevertheless I went to Black Tie's site, read a few reviews and No. 13 is bookmarked. Looks good!

I'm not opposed to a maker including an unscented soap, and if they send one I'll definitely include it in the passaround, but from experience they just don't seem to get chosen. I suppose that when you factor in the shipping to get to try a few unscented soaps it's not really worth it.

An unscented soap passaround would be great for people that have sensitivities to fragrances and other skin irritations. I'd gladly donate whatever unscented soaps I have on hand for such a cause but I think I only have maybe one or two.
