I tend to stick to my tried and tested staples now. I used to buy lots of samples based on reviews.
+1Ingredients lists. I know what i want and dont want included in a soap base. After that, it is scent.
I don't care at all about packaging. Whenever possible i buy pucks wrapped in paper and put them in my old containers anyway. Trying to shave with the smallest possible carbon footprint.
I guess you havent crossed paths with Wholly Kow tempest yet, your order of slickness first scent second might change.Slickness isn't the main thing.
It's the only thing.
Apologies to Vince Lombardi.
True. I haven't tried that one yet. At $30 a pop, I am unlikely to in the future. Mickey Lee's Drunken Goat came the closest to flipping my priorities, but even that failed. As long as it's not repulsive (e.g. smelling like a men's room), I'm pretty unimpressed by scent. How well it works for me in a shave is what's important. Others are free to establish their own preferences.I guess you havent crossed paths with Wholly Kow tempest yet, your order of slickness first scent second might change.
This one scent makes me disbelieve everyone here who keeps scent second and performance first (I am in the same camp btw)
For me it's usually performance followed by a mild, but pleasant (to me), scent. Being a recent TFS convert and fan, I just HAD TO order their Mattino (that one being my favorite looking gal in their "pin up" line). The things we do for science .just wondered what attracts you to a particular soap, with me it's probably the picture on the tub that attracts me firstly then i read the scent and if i like the sound of the scent, then I'm in, what's your reasons
