Hi all -
I don't even know if "modern" is the world I'm looking for. In the last few weeks, I've bought Provence Sante and Irisch Moos shave soaps, based on recs from these forums. While these soaps perform AMAZINGLY, for me the scents are too:
I'm looking for a high-performing soap (on the level of these two) that is "cleaner" and doesn't smell like cologne was added to it. For example, I love the smell of Nancy Boy's two shave creams (with scents like mint, cucumber, rosemary). I also like citrus. I liked the smell of a Bay Rum and Peppercorns soap sample I got, but wasn't impressed with the soap itself. Maybe I'm just into food scents. I ordered Harris Arlington recently and am hoping that is the ticket.
Pricewise, I'm hoping to max out around the price of Harris (~16 for a refill).
Does this make sense? One day, we'll be able to smell things through the interweb and this will be a lot easier.
