The original formulation of Acqua di Parma soft shaving soap. This produces some of the best lather I have ever experienced, and the scent is intoxicating.

Cella Extra Extra Purissima soap, today's lather finished off a 1/4 chunk of the 1k block. I loaded the brush for 10 - 15 seconds on the soap and it lasted 66 shaves.

Art of Shaving Sandalwood tallow-based shaving soap. This soap, while not having the very best sandalwood scent, lathers beautifully, making for an excellent shave.

Castle Forbes Cedarwood Sandalwood SC. My all time favorite. I'm addicted to the scent.

RazoRock Limited Edition XXX 'hard' shaving soap, which, while firmer than the regular XXX, is still somewhat softer than most really hard soaps. It lathered a little slower and less easily than the standard XXX soft soap but produced excellent lather, possibly a little better overall, with great skincare. The scent seemed the same but a bit weaker.

Avon Skin So Soft shaving soap, originally sold for women. For me it has been kind of slow to lather well, the lather dries and loses its glide properties by the second razor pass, and its scent is like skin lotion. So it will be relegated to shower duty.
