Been out of the game for YEARS. Back to shaving every other day again for the foreseeable future due to alopecia barbae taking my beard away. :-( SOOOOOOO, who has the nicest fall/winter soap scent? Something pumpkin-y would AWESOME. Thanks!

Yikes Scott! I don't know the answer, but I took a fast look at google and there are a great many pumpkin artisan soaps out there! I'd recommend you take a look at the dozens of examples, and buy yourself two or three or four that catch your fancy. I recently did that when I was lusting for Vetiver. I found 6! Now I'm covered up in vetiver soaps, just waiting to use them. Good luck!

Um, er .... MWF??

Anything sandalwood for me, and I particularly find Tabac an excellent fall and winter soap.

Scott, I've never thought much about certain scents for certain seasons. For me, if it's a citrus EO scent, I'm happy any time of the year.

How could MWF and Tabac not be on the list? :D
To paraphrase a 1966 movie: A soap for all seasons

In addition Haslinger Ewe’s Milk and Sandalwood, Martin de Candre Fougere, and - maybe a bit of an outlier - Musgo Real Orange Amber.
For some reason I associate the latter with Christmas, but that could be because a few years back, when I used Musgo Real Orange Amber intensively during a Christmas holiday in (out of all places) Marrakesh, the local markets were full of the scent of oranges.

You know, the old scent-memory association....

It's true that Christmas in Morocco doesn't smell the same as Christmas in Maine :mrgreen: I asked my girlfriend for expertise, and she says that it'd be better for a man to go for Tabac or sandalwood in winter. She says it gives off a serious and refined vibe, while citrus would be, in her opinion, too feisty, too "light"... Unless it's in Marrakech, of course.
