    I've grown to really like Gentleman, and it's nothing like Tabac. I've heavily invested in Stirling soaps and haven't tried all the tobacco scents on the market. BUT there are a slew of different scents based on the various forms/states tobacco can be found in, so "best" isn't just subjective, it's apples and oranges subjective.

    I've read that Tabac is supposed to smell like tobacco blossom. I've never smelled the blossoms, so to me Tabac just smells like 1959, and performs like a legend.

    I think that reviewer is just pro-Stoylin...he can be seen reviewing other products with similar enthusiasm.

    Actually had someone ask to use some of the lather I had built right when I was washing out the little bit left over in the bowl and brush. Odd, but I would have let him use it if I hadn't just washed it down the drain. Not sure if there was enough for a pass, but I would have let him use it.
