    Well, I’ve never smelled aventus, or heard of it, so..,what am I missing?

    It's a classic cologne and much loved.
    Every soap maker makes an aventus dupe.
    But I dislike soaps that smell like a cologne so I avoided it.

    SV as a soap is just brilliant. The scents were too cologne-like but dolomiti is just sublime!

    It's phenomenal. Felce Aromatics is the only one I've tried and I loved the scent... great fragrance and, just as important to me, not too much of said fragrance.

    It's probably the best vegan soap I've personally used. I'd take it over MdC any day. Don't let the price scare you as that puck will last you a year or more IF it's the only soap you use and shave daily.

    Superb soap. Probably the best performing vegan soap I've personally used.

    After reading this, I pulled out my 70th Anniversary for a shave. GREAT stuff!!!

    Now I want to sell my MdC to fund either Dolomite or Felce.

    Which should I get???

    I just got my first Sv soap....manna.

    Everyone is correct. A top performer. I used it once and was pleasantly surprised how good it worked.

    I bought the 4.3 manna. Smelled like a citrus Irish spring.

    I have tried dozens of soaps and this one is great.

    Most of their scents are floral/citrus. Which is why I've sniffed a number of them, but only purchased Cosmo and Felce Aromatica, which are not floral or citrusy.

    After she sings "both", what is she doing with her mouth? Sounds like "I'll take both...AAAAAAHH"

    How are you with "Aftershave Colognes"?

    I don't use them at all.
    I use a low scented aftershave balm, which has a touch of menthol.

    i used the cubebe tonight for a head and face shave. it was super good soap. i have used manna di sicilia before which is what lead me down the SV rabbit hole since i think its one of the best i've tried. the cubebe was just as was an aquatic type cologne scent and i also had a sample size cubebe aftershave which i used. the aftershave was like a loose gel type consistency and had some alcohol burn to it. overall i like the cubebe. that red box in the photo is a simpson T3 synthetic which is what i used on the soap. i have tried synthetic in the past and didnt care for them very much...this simpson is great...i can see using it it was under $30 which is a bargain.

    There appears to be a seperation from when she says "I'll take" and "both".

    Sunday shave
    Brush: Simpsons Trafalgar T3
    Razor: Razorock Gamechanger .84
    Blade: Schick Triple Coated Platinum
    Soap and aftershave: Saponificio Varesino Morado

    This was my first shave with the new Schick blade; and what an excellent shave it gave. Near BBS in 2 passes. The Soap and aftershave smell fantastic and the performance is top notch. 7292C414-6076-48D0-B60F-36E283D49FAA.jpeg

    Dang, that's a great razor and brush stand! Was it custom-made?

    Thanks, I got it as a birthday gift from my mother. It is not custom made as a company called Guduo makes and sells these stands on Amazon and eBay.
