    That's what I call a cacophony of soap usage!

    I don't have a rotation as such. It depends the amount of time I have to shave, the scent that appeals to me that morning, the sort of shave I am after and how my skin feels that morning. I use both commercial and home soaps.

    I shave 4-5 times a week tops. I keep a small rotation after thinning the herd to 6 soaps.

    Right now I am on a seven day rotation:

    Cella
    Razorock Tuscon Oud
    Asylum Neroli and Pepper
    LPL Cade
    LPL Rose de Puskhar
    Jabonman Badass
    Jabonman Citricos

    This is based on scent and not maker.

    Whatever appeals to me at the time. But sometimes my face tells me, “Use Mike’s today” and I choose a Mike’s scent for that day.

    I dont have an official rotation, but the only 3 soaps in my bathroom at the moment are williams, tabac, and vdh deluxe. Sometimes i reach for proraso or razorock blue barber, i will also pull out some stirling barbershop from time to time. Williams always stays in the bathroom, i have been using it for years.

    I don't have a specific rotation. When I get ready to soak my brush, I start figuring out what soap I want to use that day. I seldom use the same soap two days in a row.

    Right, numerous soaps for just one day is indeed a cacophony.

    Just to be a nudge, I will argue that this cannot be a cacophony. In order for it to be a cacophony, it must make noise. /smug.

    :D :scared007:

    Right, I can see he was the one. I'm still trying to find ways to "out-review" his shave reviews.

    I have 14 creams/soaps and 18 straight razors. I always plan to use both creams/soaps and razors in a methodical manner, but then life gets in the way. At least once a week I will decide that I got a great shave and therefore use the same soap or razor for another couple of days. After 2 or 3 days I pick back up the rotation.

    I typically keep anywhere from 3-5 soaps in my rotation. All random. When I finish one, I buy only one more so as to control myself. It is hard my friend.

    I have 7 Stirling soaps and use a different one each day of the week. The only exception is during Dec and Jan I use my (yearly purchase) of Strirling "Christmas Tree". It smells just like our fresh cut tree. I like it.....

    40 soaps and creams in rotation with matching AS or Balms. I randomly pick which one is coming up next the night before. There are seasonal favorites of course but I have enough in each category to keep it entertaining. Right now would be Stirling Gatlinburg, Henri et Victoria - Fall's Lumberjack or Cognac and Cuban Cigars, Outlaw Refinery - Santa's Pipe, Lisa's Natural Herbal Creations - Amber & Tobacco etc...
