Thanks for the report! Lol, if you found Drakkar overpowering, skip the Fierce, it's worse. Much worse. We used soap that smelled like that back in graduate school to keep deer out of our tree plantings. Really. Nothing wrong with a pleasant scent soap early in the morning in the shower, eh? Don't aways want a full scale wakeup. I'm not fond of most colognes, they are much too strong for me. Especially A&F. That means, of course, I'm not going to use them in soap. Guess I'm kinda old fashioned, eh? I enjoy everyone's impressions of scents, I find it hard to describe them. Kentish Rain, Salty Mariner, Shave and a Haircut, and Cold Water are definitely my idea of soap scents. Nice and light and refreshing. I really like Made to Measure, but I don't think it's what I want to smell while taking a shower. Reminds me of my dad, actually, since he was often carrying a cigar. Not the smoke smell, but the tobacco. I'm thinking of repeating this experiment with hot process soap if I can get it to stay fluid enough to mix twelve samples. I prefer hot process at the moment, and I think the scents behave differently without the lye in cold process. Not for a few weeks, anyway, though. I have bees to take care of getting ready for winter and doing a fall honey harvest, the grapes are ripening, so I'll be making gonzo quantities of wine this year because a friend shut down his vineyard due to health problems -- an essentially limitless supply at least for this year. 50 gallons or so, I think, if I can manage to stay organized that long. Sadly, I have enough bottles, they've been collecting.
