    Yup that's it; but my AS and cologne has a greater variation; I like a scent that sticks with me. Shaving soap is to make shaving more comfortable so as long as it give a proper cushion and protection, I'm pretty happy. :)

    I second that statement. I went a lot overboard on purchasing soaps. :shocked003: :shaver

    I Like my artisan soaps, but I’m not exactly objective, since I make them. Of course, making my own, makes them very inexpensive.

    For some strange reason, many wetshavers seem to think anything not from an artisan is less than good. As in bears the mark of undiluted evil. I think it is bunch of nonsense. If a soap works well, who cares whether it was made by some dude in the kitchen sink or by a peeps in some factory?

    If you really want to find out what is the definition of an artisan, go over to Damn Fine Shave and ask that question. The ensuing chaos will provide at least three weeks worth of entertainment. Personally, I define artisan as follows, primarily because it comes from a dictionary:

    ar·ti·san
    /ˈärdəzən/
    noun
    noun: artisan; plural noun: artisans

    a worker in a skilled trade, especially one that involves making things by hand.
    synonyms: craftsman, craftswoman, craftsperson, skilled worker, mechanic, technician, operative, maker, smith, wright, journeyman; (of food or drink) made in a traditional or non-mechanized way using high-quality ingredients.
    "local artisan cheeses"

    So an artisan anything is something made by one of them thar folks.
