Oh, never mind...
I'm clean now.
May I quote you on that?
Had me worried for a moment.
@wristwatchb Charlie, I think someone hacked your account. You may want to change your password. Or... you've become terribly confused as to where to seek help with this "issue."

Actually I stopped at the "Oh never mind" before I wrote my reply.....didn't see the conclusion of his post lol.
Well. There is an answer to that question. Buy them all.
... in multiples.
This reminds me, Charlie, of the time that you were addicted to the Hokey Pokey. I was really worried for you then. But I'm glad you turned yourself around. I mean, that's what it's all about, right?

I thought I was recovering after I made my own tallow based soap.... superior to any soap I own............ then recently bought 2 soaps “for the bowls”, and they were discounted. I really want Panna Crema! But am very happy with my self made soap..... almost cured me of my addiction.
Oh well, what about MWF? I would happily shave with that for the rest of my days. Does that mean I'm addicted?
Leclec, I for one would be interested in how you make soaps and maybe a good book on the subject.
I love this hobby, love purchasing new products, love variety and rotation, and I have no desire to break my addiction. Razors, soaps, and brushes won't threaten my health, well-being, or bank account like drugs, alcohol, or gambling, so I'll keep making monthly purchases. I find that 50 to 80 bucks of gear a month keeps me satisfied. I love receiving new stuff in the mail. It makes me feel like I did as a kid when I got my Captain Video decoder ring.
By the way, great joke.
I did internet research.... used old formula Williams as a guide. Added my own selection of moisturizing / super fat. And my essential oils for smell.... I super fatted with Shea, lanolin , argan . ( I need to recheck recipe) added porcelain. Scented with lavender vetiver.. I even rendered the tallow. My technique was faulty but still resulted in a fully cured, great lather, slick, and moisturizing soap with a great nose.
Thanks for the quick answer. I'll look into it.
I hear you on feeling like kid..... man / woman. Has to have their toys.... i’m Almost a year in to this avocation and have greatly curbed my purchases. Currently I’m thinking quality not quantity .... even considering thinking the herd and selling off some... I am planing on buying a japanese natural stone as a birthday present to my self in December. And looking for a decent kamisori for Christmas present to my self.
Hit me up if you have question.... I’m far from an expert... will be glad to toss ideas around.....
i ended up stopping chasing a soap's scent even after shave, when i replaced that with bit of research into and buying good colognes. this seriously curtailed almost cured my soap addiction
