    Default Art of Shaving tallow soap

    Is this hard to track down still(or was it ever)?

    I found some Lemon and Sandalwood at a men's salon near me. Grabbed a refill of the Lemon, as I've never tried AOS soap before.

    The tallow formulation is very hard to find now. It's great though.

    Sadly, it was discontinued aroud the first of the year. I'd go back and get the rest if I were you. Not everybody likes the clay scent, but it is one of my favorite soaps.

    When we found out P&G was had started making the soap, I cleaned out the AoS store at the Stanford Shopping Mall in Palo Alto (near my office) of their old stock tallow first soap.

    They had one puck of the sandalwood left and one puck plus one bowl/puck of the lavender. It's wonderful soap. Think I'll use some for tomorrow's shave.

    Do yourself a favor and get back there and pick up that Sandalwood.

    When I found a stash in the wild in May, I cleaned them out, and now have about 3 years of load it like you hate it shaves. Yeah, the stuff is that good, and if I find another stash, I'll clean them out too.

    Like I said earlier, a few weeks ago I was in the Dallas Galleria and most of the soaps on the shelves were the tallow formula.

    May e I should have bought a few pucks and put them on the B/S/T.

    I used AOS tallow first sandalwood this morning. I have about 2/3 of a puck left. I would pay dearly for another puck!

    I luckily found myself a couple pucks... I have not yet tried the new formula but I bet it's always great. I bought into the tallow hype.

    I've been sitting on a puck of lavendar for a couple years now. Will have to try it one of these days.

    I think Valobra is coming out with their own this fall.

    Guys - in light of new soap makers such as Mikes and Barrister & Mann and Panna Crema - is there really a reason to stock up on these soaps while multiple options are out there?

    The short answer is yes. If you can stock up, do it. Agreed that there are other fine soap makers out there, but they're not AoS...

    I'm not a big sandalwood fan so I'll leave these be...

    They were at the Boardroom Salon in Highland Village, for any locals reading this.....

    I did shave with the lemon this morning. Good shave but the only smell was that of the tallow.

    I suspect the scent is that of the clay. That is the one negative that these soaps have for some. Personaly doesn't bother me, but
    it is a real negative for some.

    For me, tallow AOS beats all of the soaps mentioned above.
