There's a review started here:
But since these samples were VERY economical to try and my nose is a tad picky despite liking some scents, I am going to try and review some of these so some other people can decide if they want to get a bar or a sample. I tried to get most of the scents (besides ones I knew I wouldn't like I have to look and see which ones I have.
Also, Mike isn't the only soap maker on here and always good to support a local USA business!
As far as the beginning I had computer issues (my stupid mistake) and Mike is VERY responsive, already a big perk over the big businesses who either doesn't have time for you, or just give you manufacturer's info. Kinda neat to be able to speak to the soap MAKER not just a salesman with some info given to them by the manufacturer.
Unfortunately so far I guess since I'm a little picky (and I don't like some of the "older" scents although some I do), but also my girlfriend is very picky and hasn't approved of almost any of my soaps. I think she's only really liked the Menthol scents (and not even all of those!), and I have liked those the best, but she's also disliked some scents that may have been a bit "older" that I like as well.
So I thought one good test other than to lather and make sure no skin falls off my face (:P) would be to have my girlfriend smell the lather and hear her opinion as to how she likes the scent.
My first try with be Rose/Cedarwood especially since I smell a nice Rose scent and I can't see her not liking this one, but she is pretty picky so we'll find out.
Also the bars come in little rectangles, I guess you could put it at the bottom of the bowl and lather away, but since I only have one empty mug to lather in now, I am going to just take a piece off (probably with my hands or a knife, it's pretty soft I don't think I need to grate it) and I am probably going to use that piece before moving on to the next sample.
