Nope. I'm loaded up with The Gentleman's Quarter and a bunch of milled soaps.

I've liked your shaving soap reccs (kinda homo, but only when I imagine us shaving together after a long hot steamy shower...OK I've said too much)

Well, I have a puck of Truefitt & Hill, just because I was in London and HAD to have it. It's good but not really TDF.

The general soap stockpile consists of Provence Sante (awesome), Pre de Provence (great), and L'Occitane Cade (spotty but I <3 the smell) - for the triple-milled, and then Proraso and Prep soft Italian soaps - which are just a bit harder than creams.

Where do you buy the provence sante and pre de provence Thomas? I've been wanting to try those for a while now. Even though I'm not shaving any longer.

Years back there was a group-buy deal at a Touch of Europe (I think it's atouchofeurope.com), that had tins of PdP and refills of Provence Sante for $10 or less. I think they still run deals at times. Frankly, $10 for a refill of Provence Sante is pretty good since the milled soaps hardly wear down. I used up one puck of PS and had a few still in reserve. BTW: I think PS has a couple of soaps now, the one I use is Verlaine.

Actually, if you ever come across a puck of eShave avocado/linden soap (now discontinued), at a decent price, I'd snag it: as far as I can tell, it's identical to PS.

...

I also forgot to mention: I also use Tabac Original - the one in the white ceramic bowl. It's fantastic as well, and generally available on Amazon for reasonable lucre.

I tried the eShave and didn't really care for it, although I can't really remember if it was that flavor or not. When I get back into shaving those three are the soaps that I want to try. I've already got a puck of the Mitchell's Woolfat sitting around here somewhere.

Thom-Thom - thanks for including a puck in the first frag swap box if that was you. I took one of those slices and am still using it here and there. Fantastic stuff.

As I understand it, the eShaves varied wildly in quality: I only tried the avocado linden, and was kind of warned off the rest of them. It doesn't smell like much other than a vague hay-like sweetness, but the avocado oil makes it work better than most.

Glad you like it. I really ought to use it more, but at the moment I'm trying to use up some cream that I've had for years.

Cool. Keep us updated. Did you get a bar soap to try as well?

Nope - just a 3-pack sample of the creams. Just got it - will try the Vostock this evening and report back.
