    My Secret Santa gifted me several samples of Route 66 shaving soap. Then a very generous anonymous TSD member sent me two full tubs of Twisted Tweed and Rum Runner. I acquired yet another sample through another member.

    I have yet to try any Route 66 but have read so much on TSD about how great it is. I'm excited to find out! With all this loot I'm going to stick with Route 66 through all of January!

    The scents I have:

    Twisted Tweed - full tub
    Rum Runner - full tub
    Ghost Town - sample
    Perfect Storm - sample
    Bourbon Jungle - sample
    Lavender Woods - sample
    Cavendish - sample

    About how many shaves does a sample provide?

    The scents are great from initial nose testing. I'm excited to try these during January!

    That's my recollection. I've gone thru about 4 or 5 samples. I smash the puck into a small tin.

    I have tubs of Lumberjack and Bourbon Jungle, a Cavendish sample, and will play along with you. I really like Route 66, and it is hands down my favorite current production small-batch soap, and the owner @Salty Belle (Kathleen) is a proud supporting vendor of our little forum. Check out her products online at Retro Shave Shop.

    Glad to have you along! I plan to start with the Cavendish sample for my first shave in 2017. @Paul Turner wants a report on that particular scent. I'm looking forward to it!

    Cavendish is my favorite Route 66 scent - I still have a few of the samples left that I ordered last year. Maybe I'll join you here - at least for a part of the way ;)

    I used R66 every day in January 2015. It was the soap of choice for learning straights.

    Cavendish or Sweeney Todd were my two favorites. I used up four or five samples and can tell you that this is really top notch stuff. Then it went on my Christmas list, so I have not bought a full tub yet. I am hoping there is a box under the tree??? [FINGERSCROSSED]

    If it isn't, guess what is going to be my final purchase in 2016? :)

    Of the Route 66 soaps I have tried my two favorites have been Lumberjack and Frozen Margarita. After one use, I can see Bay Lime Twist being up there as well.

    Perry, I will play along and use primarily Route 66 for January.

    Great! Another contestant! I plan to post my shaves in the normal places but will also post them here.

    I assume Ms Belle(Salty)knows about this contest.

    One of the guests here just said, in a phone call to her granddaughter, "No one takes Rte 66 anymore". Was presumably teasing.

    I have the "Sea and Citrus. Wonderful stuff. I'm finding the cushion and glide from it is perfect for SR shaving. I'll definitely be getting more.

    Looks good! Please join us! I'm going to start with a sample of Cavendish and then go from there. I was gifted a few more samples for a Christmas present yesterday. Some are duplicates to what I have, but some aren't. I'll have plenty to choose from.
