  4. @Roy - What he @Ferry-shave said - Citrus Musk is my favourite Wickham soap. A bright, fresh and uplifting scent - with a deeper base. It lathers like a dream - granted I'm using about as soft water as you get anywhere in the UK. Sorry I can't be more helpful about summer specific scents - I live in Scotland - we generally don't get them. It stops raining for a couple of days most years. The matching Citrus Musk aftershave is excellent for me too - scent longevity beyond most splashes. Cheers - I.

    Need a bit of gorse in there as well P, that could be a sort of coconut and saffron gourmand... Nice! :D

    Sounds like a winning combination. Lets see what can be done. :)

  9. Ok to my mind Wales has many different things it can be associated with. But how about a profile that has. Rugby represented by earthy, green and leather notes for the soil, grass and ball. Choirs represented by woody and fruity notes for the wooden pews and communal wine. And finally Mining represented by tar, metallic, and musk notes for the coal, machinery and mens sweat. Lol just a random idea

    That’s pretty well thought out. Might smell awful, but the idea is solid.

  11. Lol thank you. To give you an idea Penhalogons Sart orial has many of these types of notes and some that could be replaced with what I put up. So I think it could work.

    I whish that I could get some more soaps, but I am running out of space in my tiny bathroom....
     
  13. Buy a bigger house lol. Or as a temp measure move your bathroom into your bedroom. Or as a basic measure do what I do and store half your soaps elsewhere and pick a soap before going to shave. I've got them whittled away in a few places lol

    Makes it harder for SWMBO to get an accurate count and give me grief about how many soaps do you need??? :D

    Yes they are. I have three of their soaps (parma violet, club cola, classic 24) and all lather easily and plentiful.

    The slickness and residual slickness is off the charts, its outstanding soap.
    Club Cola has a good summery scent. It smells like a class of Cola and lemon.

    @Fox is the owner of Wickham soap. He might be able to give you more information :)

    For what it's worth (as already previously stated)....... Yes they lather very easily. I have only one full size, Cashmere, which is stunning! I think this could be used as a summer scent, and also moving into a winter fragrance too. I have most of the others in sample size (for now) until I decide on another one. I am fairly new to shaving soaps, but Wickhams seems to be excellent - superb slickness and post shave feel. I'd agree that Club Cola would be good for a summery scent, and the English Rose too (doesn't smell like an old lady - promise!)
