    I haven't. And while the smell of Hoppes 9 brings back some great memories, I wouldn't want to shave with it.

    Shave with it right before going Hunting or Target practice LOL!
    Actually I might just buy one as a novelty item...

    I love the smell of Hoppes 9. As I am very active in the shooting sports I go through a large quantity of Hoppes 9. I think the scent would do well in a shave soap. However the chemical makeup may not work well with standard soap chemistry.

    What next WD-40? Turpentine? Varnish?

    I just tried it and I like it a lot. A very good quality slick lather with good cushion. The PAA 9 has hints of vanilla or vanilla overtones along with a faint sweet solvent smell. It is no were near as strong as a bottle of hoppee no 9 solvent but it is very reminiscent of it in scent in a mid to mild way. The cologne after shave is nice to and last for a while.

    Happy Shaves All,
    Bill G

    I'm also active in the shooting sports, so I may have to pick up some of this.

    the scent of #9 comes from the most toxic ingredient in that wonderful product.

    Testors model enamel and/or glue scented soap for me, with a side order of major organ shutdowns.

    Couldn't agree more. Love it. My favorite. Last shave was Veterans Day - posted in SOTD. I use both the aftershave and soap.

    Man, it seems like I've been on a binge lately, but I need to pull the trigger on this soap and aftershave combo.

    I've never held a gun, but given my love for all things PAA, I'm sure I would love this scent.

    Not necessarily. If you've never smelled Hoppes 9...
    Not a bad smell, just something I wouldn't want to slather all over my face.

    I like Jelly Beans, doesn't mean I would like these ---> http://spoonuniversity.com/lifestyle/jelly-bellys-grossest-flavors-ranked
