Bump. Up, up goes the Tabac thread! May it prosper and live long, even longer than glue/wax-spots-on-PPI-blades-threads and Iridiums-resurrecting-or-not?-threads!
EDIT: And may there be more replies and more Tabac aficionados than gentlemen claiming to have a sensitive skin for shaving! Can Tabac pull that kind of a feat? It just might...!

Tabac is the best! I have the soap and the bowling pin.....er cologne I mean.
I Tabac'ed last night. This marks my third consecutive shave without using Arko. :O
<bump> I bought a bunch of new flavors and haven't touched Tabac for days and days. I know it is feeling neglected so I'll use it later this morning, following up with Razorock Aftershave Wax which is beyond most excellent. Wish I loved the scent of Tabac. </bump>
This gave me a quick chuckle, so I thought I would send it back to the top. I must admit I didn't think the smell was that great at first, but now I love it. I will take it out of the drawer and set it out somewhere, just so I can smell it. I have even considered buying a puck to cut up and stash around the house.
BTT, just got a bottle of Tabac AS as well, and love it as well as the soap. I am a little disappointed in how quickly it seems to fade, but then I remember the relative humidity is about 7% here this time of year.
Has anyone ever actually finished a puck of Tabac?
I've had mine for over a year, closer to two, and whilst it isnt an everyday soap for me, and I have worn a huge dent in the bottom of it, it still persists!
[QUOTE=kjparker;3948656]Has anyone ever actually finished a puck of Tabac?
Yes i did, I was without a replacement at the time also, I have to stop now i am starting to mist up just thinking about it.
Guess I shouldn't have rushed out and got 2 pucks plus a mostly unused soap in the jar?
What a newbie...
I had to ban myself from B&B while at work... (unless on break or lunch, of course!)
anybody ever use proraso pre and then tabac soap? wonder if the scents will be weird together...
I was really worried because I heard a government health warning that Tabac was bad for you.
Turns out it was Tobacco. Lucky eh !!!!!
Funny stuff! :) I love my Tabac. I would be using it tonight but have been forced into a blind shaving cream and AS sampling by my buddy, Earcutter, here on B&B. Damn, you, David! I want my Tabac back! ;)
Whats Tabac ...
Bullock! I just posted a Williams thread.
OK. Every time I decide I am done with Tabac, I get a really good shave. Today it was fabulous. Admittedly I did a different prep than I normally do with Tabac. Weekends I have more time so I do a different prep than during the week. After shower, I used a light coat of CO Bigallo (Love the cream, not crazy about the menthol, really waiting on the new Proraso!) Then hot towel on my face. I had taken the puck of Tabac from the container it was in fully intending to PIF it to someone who wanted to try it, and put it in a Col Conk apathacary mug. Light coat of hot water while I soaked an AOS trial pkg brush (yes the crappy brush they include with the $25.00 trial pkg of products) in hot water. Shook the brush a couple of times and lathered on the Tabac. From there I face lathered. Ended up with a near BBS shave. Razor was an EJ89L with Feather blade on day 6. Now I have to see if this was a one off or if I had not been lathering the Tabac properly. I had it in a much smaller container with a lid and may have let it become too hydrated to work well. The puck was quite dry when I used it this morning. I have really wanted to like Tabac, since I like the scent!
Life is a journey, not a destination.
