Thanks again for the advice gents. With your help I've compiled a little list of soaps to try. The list surprises me. I don't have a time frame in mind for following it. I'm posting said list in case others find it useful: Cella Crema Sapone sounds good. I've concluded being triple-milled is not an ...

Thanks for all your helpful replies! I do appreciate them. This is a tough one: no Harris, no Provence, no T & H, no sandalwood, no rose, no lavender, no floral, (and that list means no Taylor). I know how much you guys love a challenge. :) You've come up with some things I hadn’t thought of. I’ll t...

Thanks, gents, for the interesting thread. I hadn't made the quinine connection myself, but I think it may explain my response to this soap. While the lather is great, I can't abide the scent. :cry: I've used my puck about 20 times off-and-on, and left it out in the open to "mellow", but it still ir...
