Bryce the MWF bath soap is fantastic! I love the scent of it too. The scent is quite different from the MWF shaving soap though. I wish the shaving soap scent matched the bath scent as I would use it quite a lot.

Chris, I was disappointed that the bath soap didn't smell like the shaving soap! :?

Murray, ha ha! Touche, my friend. We've all got our tastes and it's good that there are vendors of all types to cater to them.

I will say this: I was surprised they didn't smell the same either. Years ago I bought the MWF bath soap and I loved it and used it for a long time. When I first bought a cake of it though I fully expected it to smell the same as the shave soap. Even though I was not a great fan of that scent I was willing to try the bath soap to see if it was something that I'd like. Ce la vie!

I have been using MWF soap for a year or so, and I like it too.

A bit expensive, but it is really nice.

MWF shave soap is in my rotation, but I never thought about them having different scents. My nose must be out of spec if I can't detect a difference.

Williams...

I recently dug out a puck from my stockpile but have no idea about the age. I'd guess 8-10 years. Been using as is with a Semogue 1250 boar and it lathers well enough for me. I have tallow soaps which I like better, but Williams does work.

Regards, gents.
