Thanks Douglas I will check them out.
Thank you Roby
I am still getting up to speed, so:
2 small sample creams
I up to about 40 individual soaps in rotation.
Plus a few MWF, LEA, Haslinger and Speick in reserve.
107 soaps and creams. That's not including about 15 or so samples I have laying around.
I have less soaps than you probably would expect
5x TFS soaps (hard and soft) with different scents
2x Monsavon (inexpensive French soap, lavender ... well, sort of ... scent)
A couple of Palmolive sticks (I usually stock up when I am in Germany anyway)
A couple of Wilkinson Sword blue sticks (same story)
Enough Tabac for a lifetime
One and half brick of Klar Kabinett (given how little I use that soap, that will last a lifetime as well)
1x De Vergulde Hand (the one soap you literally find everywhere around here)
Some samples of various soaps
Edit: arrrggghhhh ... how could I forget ARKO!?
Up until yesterday evening, I had zero soaps on hand. I've been using standard creams, brushless creams, and canned creams for years. But, I got the urge yesterday to give soaps another go.
On hand now:
1. VdH Luxury
2. Yardley Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, and Vitamin E (technically a bath soap)
I never tried mystic waters soaps.
Their coconut-sandalwood, raspberry-lemon, and almond-vanilla seem to be ones that interest me .
i did it...pulled the trigger and ordered a puck of their raspberry lemon.
I have a rotation of about 100 plus around 15 in reserve.
Apart from multiples of MWF and Speick sticks, I am determined to only have unique soaps so as not to have redundant reserves that won't be needed for a couple of decades at least.
Although I'm still unsure how I ended up with duplicates of DRHarris Windsor and both the PdP soaps!?

Thank you, Joseph. I feel much better about my soap situation now.
Some good soaps there Joseph.
I have to many to list. I will also make you feel better. 100 plus pucks, approximately 12 creams, and a few sticks Andrew.
Dang, Id have to have a tertiary storage location for that many soaps.
Maybe we need to form a support group. Oh wait!!!
We have one, TSD.
Since moving, I am still on the lookout for a PRIMARY storage location.
I have one soap (Sego Lily Lavender Eucalyptus) and one cream (Proraso white). Keeping it simple for now, Will add some more scents as I get my technique and skill level down. I mostly use the Sego Lily and reserve the Proraso for traveling.
There’s your problem - soaps and creams can’t reproduce together! Get a couple more of each though, leave them in a drawer unsupervised...
ROFLMAO That is a really good one. I will have to keep that in mind.
