This morning, following the extinguishment of the Homemade Lime yesterday, I shifted to the Homemade Tobacco soap from March 2, 2014. I'll be using it for a week or so before moving to the next scheduled soap. (Note to myself: today's shave was #7 on this tub).

Gary, after 5+ years, are the scents of your soaps holding on?

A year ago the Tobacco scented tub shown above had a good but mild scent, and when I started up again on it this week, it has become completely neutral. Makes a great lather though. :D
