    Probably it is because they are not smelling them side by side and the smell of the DB just reminds
    them of Nag. They are both deep manly smells.

    I wrap my soap in paper. I had one soap that didn’t sell at all. Changed the paper to one I don’t like much and it is a best seller.
    I can’t sell Amalfi coast FO soap at all no matter what the pattern of the soap.
    I made soap dough Xmas travel soaps in cute container - didn’t sell at all. I can sell as many crochet pure cotton washers as I can make.

    Hmmm... I need to have a chat with my men. I have one guy who buys Nag Champa, all the rest are female and my DB only sells to women. The most common comments I hear when I suggest Nag Champa or DB for men is that "It's too feminine".

    That is too funny when I sell it mainly to men. Nag will sell to women and so will DB but not at the same rate I sell to men.
    Nothing is going to sell at my 2 markets, they just shut them down until further notice because of CoronaV. :(
