I was milling some TOBS violet soap into a contain last night when I thought of something which I haven't seen much (if at all) mention on the boards here.
Has anyone tried to mix the milled shavings of two different soaps to form a new soap?
I would imagine this could be employed for the purpose of creating new scent combinations, mixing different lathering capabilities of two soap, or maybe bump up the lathering potential of an underperformer.
I was thinking the MWF would be a good base since it's mostly neutral in scent (almost like the grain component in a blended Scotch).
Some possible experiments that I had running through my head:
1. Mixing 2/3 Penhaligon's new formulation soap with 1/3 MWF to get the classic Pen's scent with a much better lather?
2. Mixing L'Occitane Cade soap with D.R. Harris Marlborough for a richer wood/herbal shave?
3. Blending 50-50 TOBS violet with TOBS rose for the ultimate flower-bomb shave?
Again, this was more of a mental exercise for me since I haven't tried it. I wanted to throw it up here to see if someone else has already tried this and had success or if this will go down as another hair-brained idea of a B&Ber with too much soap on his hands.
