I am thinking of buying some SCS shave cream. Which scent do you guys like and doesn one lather better than the other?

I like Very V. (Vetiver) however is a scent that lots of people don't appreciate. I did get Barbershop scent in a soap that came with a mug from SCS and it is very nice.

I have used the SCS Lime Rose shaving cream. I like the way it performs, it lathers well and is slick and cushioning. I do not have the most discerning nose when it comes to scents, but I would say it does smell as advertised, with the Lime coming through a little stronger than the Rose. The scent is fairly strong in that you can definitely smell it when building lather in a bowl and when lathering the face, but it is not overpowering. The scent doesn't linger after the shave in done. Overall I like the scent, though I don't have any other lime or rose to compare it against.
I have Juniper Mist, but have not shaved with it yet, I am planning to use it this winter. Just based on inspection, I expect to shave similarly well as the Lime Rose. The scent is nice, I would again say it smells as advertised.

Of her regular creams, Oakmoss Lavendula is my favorite. Sandalwood/Rose is my favorite limited scent followed by Fairway/Rose. juniper Mist was my least favorite but it gets better each time I use it.
I have not noticed any difference that one scent makes better lather or is easier to. SCS creams have a learning curve but the practice is well worth it.
edit: pffth. how could I forget about Smoke and Beads?!! Right behind Oakmoss Lavendula, but not by much.

I went with the Smoke and Beads and the Coconut. Then the next day I decided I couldn't live without the mug and soap she was offering to B&B members. Tomorrow I don't know what I will need.
