I really like Tallow and Steel soaps.  Great protection.  Great lather.  But heaven help me Most of the scents confuse me.  Today was Boreal which is touted to smell like a Boreal Forest. It has stated notes of Cedarwood, cedar leaf, balsam fir, white spruce, black spruce, Monard (?) and birch.  All of these are ascents I love (except Monard which I don't know anything about.). The scent is to garbled and although I have been in many a borial forest, I don't get taken on a trip with this soap.  LOVE the label art.  In fact T&S art rocks. Scents are an acquired taste.
Spot on, Lipripper660. Love the performance. Iffy on the scents. There's just too much going on, and nothing really stands out.

Vétyver v. (Martin de Candre) immaculate vetiver

This vetiver has been scrubbed with a steel brush. It’s clean but lifeless. Still, in this hot weather, I get along with Vétyver fine, especially since it gives me such a good shave. A drenched MdC lather is certainly slick, but it’s not quite as snotty as yesterday’s Catie’s Bubbles. If a good tallow soap yields a yoghurt-like lather, then a good vegetable soap comes out like phlegm. There’s a microscopic layer of slimy ooze between my face and the blade that keeps everything running smooth. MdC gives me some of that ectoplasmic slip, but not as much as many other vegan soaps. In exchange, though, it washes away squeegee clean. The tightness that follows lasts only thirty minutes. Then the glycerin does its bit and leaves me hale and happy the rest of the day.

Haven't heard hail and happy used for years.  My vintage Gillette smiled.  Bring this one back!

Gunpowder & Spice - this is the old glycerin based soap and, so far, the lather has not been to my liking.  But the scent....ohhh, that scent!  It paired up amazing well with my sample of PAA Tombstone  Happy2
