That was Diamondfor me. Didn't care for it at first but crave it now.

Closest soap to Tabac I have ever used.

Vetiver v. (Le Père Lucien) ★★★★★ vetiver & cedar

I'm continuing my LPL love-athon with a dip into their recent Vetiver. If there are two scents I really enjoy, they are vetiver and cedar. I can wear them all year round without growing tired of them. Any day one of them comes up in the rotation is a good day. To have both blended in one excellent soap is enough to give me shivers. Neither the vetiver nor the cedar here are burly, but they smell clean and are vivid enough to cheer the heart.

So today, grinning and gleeful, I brewed up a massive bowl of suds. This soap is so much more stable than earlier versions of LPL soaps. Just as I laid down the lather for a third pass a great wet squall blew in from the sea. All the windows were open and within seconds the floors were drenched. I dropped my razor and scuttled around the place battening down the hatches and sopping up the puddles. When I got back to the sink five minutes later I was astounded to find my face still covered with a thick layer of lather. This wouldn't have been the case with the old LPL soaps. They evaporated before I could plow through the second pass. But these latest soaps in the 150 gram tins – Vetiver, Oud Neroli, Rose de Pushkar – set like mortar and still remain slick.

Murphy and McNeil cream: Claddgh

Though it is called a soap or a croap, this stuff is a cream. A thick viscous cream - but attacking with a brush will result in half of the container sticking to your implement. It reminds of the vulvfix density /consistency.

The scent strength is dialed down. But that is ok for me. The artisan mentions that it is a Creed Silver Mountain Water clone- but I get black tea and a light tobacco note.

No matter, this stuff is superb. Easy to lather, handles water easily, and whips into a low profile, dense, mayo like cream that results in a superb post shave.

I am looking forward to an unscented version. This will be a regular in my den's rotation.

Bouki- your prose on these, and commitment to them has me intrigued. I have a Rose Pushkar puck that I really want to use on my Shetland Sheepdogs as a shampoo. The puck is about 4 years old.

So have they reformulated? Do I try again?

Like you, I appreciate vetiver, and woody oriental fragrances , so tell me, forge ahead?
