+1. Love my Gael Laoch, and I just ordered one of the new Fall soaps that dropped today.
I did, too. I’ve been to the Cliffs of Moher, so that was a required buy.
Exact same findings here....
I'd love some thoughts on choosing an M & M scent. This will be my first purchase of M&M. I'm a big fan of DG's products and use a DG soap / aftershave on almost a daily basis. With fall approaching, it seems to be an ideal time to try something new. (Not that any of us need much of an excuse to purchase a new soap).
Last fall I often shaved with DG's Darkfall. It was a scent that I liked, and my wife liked it as well (always important). Given that, is there a Murphy & McNeil scent that is similar in spirit that I should try? If not, what would be top recommendations for an ideal starter/fall scent from M&M?
Candidly, I would email Bill at M&M and ask him for his recommendation for a good scent given your preference. The Fall scents are now available. One of those might be a real winner for you.
I would recommend reading the scent notes online and then ordering 4-5 of the $3.99 sample pouches that they offer.
M&M just released some new scents... some sound darker than their first offerings. I'm very curious about the new Tobacco scent.
But also see my post #271 in this thread. I gave some thoughts on the M&M tubs I've purchased
Be sure to check out their Soap Base and Scent Profiles page. If nothing else, you will be better informed and have better questions if you do as @Hannah's Dad suggested and call Bill.
This is a solid idea, especially with free shipping, no minimum.
Green Man is one of the best artisan scents I have smelled. It’s up there with valobra and mdc, who are much bigger companies.

I have used Green man several times this week.I concur that it is a lovely scent .
Different horses for different courses, but I could not stand Green Man. But then again, I generally dislike Fougeres with really only one or maybe two exceptions.

Please forgive this self-centered post. I just wanted to say as the delighted owner of seven M&M soaps, but one who has committed to the September GRUME ... YOU GUYS ARE KILLING ME.
Keep up the good work.
I just ordered up samples of the new M&M scents. It has become my go to as well. I gave up the September GRUME specifically so I could buy from the new release, lol. I’ll be back for October.
+1 I agree on all accounts. M&M is better for my skin than GD. GD is still good just not long lasting, and way overpriced.
+1 on Green Man. I enjoy Fougere and this is a very pleasant one. I do wish the scent was a little stronger, but the scent stays nicely through my shaving experience and there are a host of of aftershaves and colognes to follow up the shave with. I grabbed up an extra Green Man when M&M was clearing out the old soft formula on sale and I'm really glad I did. I actually really like the old soft formula a lot. The new harder formula is outstanding as well of course.
After using both the older, soft formula and now the newer hard formula, I gotta say I kinda like the softer one a bit more. It lathers up so incredibly quick and easily. Actual shave performance and post shave is the same.
Have they strengthened the scents at all? I have a tub and it barely has a scent at all.
Magh Tured looks like it may be my first M&M purchase. Initially it was Ouroborous, but even though I like the smell of incense, I didn't think it was a safe blind buy.
Spicy and Woody, this fragrance will bring a bit of the Battle of Magh Tured to your day.
Scent Strength: Medium
Top - Rosewood and Pepper
Middle - Sandalwood
Base - Patchouli, Vetiver
Some may recognize this fragrance as an homage to "Oud Wood" by Tom Ford. (No affiliation.)
I noticed the same - good soap, but kinda puny scent. I've got another sample of Cat Sidhe to try, but haven't opened it yet.
