Please pick three brands of shaving soaps for your life

Discussion in 'Shaving Soaps' started by Vincentchou, May 18, 2019.

    Dear gents in this forum,
    Testing new soaps is always fun, but sometimes a bit risky.
    I always wondered what are my choices if I could only pick three brands of shaving soaps.
    Mine are
    Pannacrema
    Tallow and Steel
    Declaration Grooming


    What are yours?
    Any forthcoming inputs are highly appreciated.
     
  1. From what I’ve used so far:

    Barrister & Mann: have the Reserve Waves and dig it, but also have Diamond which is a different base and in a class on its own.

    TFS: I started with this brand and Uncle Walter, Stupafacente and the Savon Rasir have a place here always.

    Soap Commander: only tried Honor from this brand yet but it’s pretty stellar.

    Honorable mention goes to Stirling for value/scents/feel vs $, and to Murphy&McNeil for creating Ouroboros because that soap/scent is weirdly amazing to me.
     
  2. Tabac
    Stirling
    Arko
     
  3. Considering scent + properties (I value scent a lot) I would choose:

    MDC
    B&M
    Stirling
     
  4. Calani
    Stirling
    Saponificio Varesino
     
  5. Tough to pick 3 but first spot goes to Mike’s...after that I’m not sure
     
  6. Wickham’s
    Phoenix and Beau
    Tabac

    MWF soap
    Tabac soap
    Proraso cream
     
  9. Have to be brands with multiple scents and the scents have to be absolutely top tier, so:

    Grooming Dept.
    SV
    Fitjar

    That was easy, though it was a shame not to have Eufros in there.

    I may change Proraso for Cella after I try the kilo block. Really enjoyed the cream.
