    What are some you like using or would like to see available? Doesn't have to be specific to a brand, but a "type" of fragrance like aquatic, citrusy floral etc.

    Hey there Kathleen! :)

    How's about something with some STRONG menthol! ;)

    I was going to say mint, menthol, maybe mixed with a citrus like a lime. I like fresh light scents all the time.

    Ah Kathleen, menthol is my number one favourite and the stronger the better! :) :)

    I also love lavender!

    I have a ton of soaps and my favorite for spring and summer are fruity scents mixed with tropical floral scents.

    Something nice would be orange with coconut and some type of Hawaii flower.

    And for crackstar add some menthol.

    My entire summer gig consists of almost all Stirling soaps...

    -The original Limes (maybe 1/3 of a puck left)
    -Lemony Orange (1/2 puck left? Oh man, if he ever brings it back, I will order like stocking up for the apocalypse.)
    -Stirling Glacial Lemon
    -Stirling MITA
    -Stirling Island Man
    -Stirling Black Ice (nothing sexier than that old man who smells like Black Jack gum, right?)

    I of course have others that fit the "warm" bill over frozen highs, but these are my favorite rotated summer soaps.

    I can't stand any wetshaving products that have "edible" scent. If I want to eat something, then I'll eat it, not putting it on my face.
    Except the menthol, what makes a scent "summer"-oriented?

    To me, soaps that are light, cool, cold, citrusy, minty are what I enjoy in the warmer weather.

    When it is cold out I tend to pick woodsy, barbershop, cologne type scents.

    I don't know if anyone ever made a Grey Flannel soap but that would be nice for spring.

    Acqua Di Selva would be another great smelling soap! :)

    Thinking spring here.....cherry blossom. I'm sure it exists. But I think the trick would be one that is not to strong. It's should be a manly cherry blossom. Not to floral. Complex. Finishes with peppercorn or something very earthy and rich.

    I think I just described a glass of wine. Haha.

    I would say citrus, lime, orange, maybe coconut. You could mix some scents that are not that common, like orange-patchouli coconut, floral- lime with some menthol sounds like it would be good for springtime.
