I bought Arabian Nights from Sharon recently. I get a decent lather and good post shave care, as expected. What I enjoy the most is the fragrance. It has a lovely warming spice, with that critical cut of freshly ground black pepper. I get rose, star anise and patchouli tones too. Each aspect is crisp and works well to not allow the spice to be overpowering. Nice tin too. Very happy shaver!

Glad you liked it Nishy.
Carl, I'll get that made this week. But it will be about 4 weeks before it's ready. I did make some Moroccan Sands bath soap, but it's appearance is not what I wanted. Should have been black and white, instead it's black and a yellowing brown....particularly gutted as I had put in a shed load of pricy sweet almond oil. So it's a lovely soap to use, but not so great to look at. You can see it here http://www.nannyssillysoap.com/ps/index.php?id_product=254&controller=product&id_lang=1&search_query=moroccan&results=8 The picture makes it look better than it is, I think.

No problem, that suits me fine, as they're not even wrapped yet. I think I've found the bath soap wrapping I'm finally going to stick with - e.g. here http://www.nannyssillysoap.com/ps/index.php?id_product=205&controller=product&id_lang=1
and here http://www.nannyssillysoap.com/ps/index.php?id_product=280&controller=product&id_lang=1 and here http://www.nannyssillysoap.com/ps/index.php?id_product=336&controller=product&id_lang=1

The colour of the coloured tape will change over time, as I can't get a steady supply, and just snap up what I can find. But you get the idea. It should also be easier to open the wrapping than some of my previous 'bright' ideas, as the tape is paper and tears easily.

Me to. But I feel I have to try to make them look pretty. Not sure whether this browning is going to continue to get worse....OMG, they might end up chocolate brown and black. I'll let you know if they've noticeably deteriorated by the time I post.

I think wrapping is a female thing and blokes not greatly into it. We might be about to find out otherwise, though?

Chocolate brown and black - like Cadbury's Fruit and Nut but nutless?

You'll have to let me know what you think when you see that chocolate brown gleaming through that quality wax paper nicely offset with contrasting ribbon.

You have a very sick mind Carl, and maybe need counselling. Although I myself, usually the last to pick up on distasteful innuendo, did find a smile cross my face (before I checked myself, naturally) when I received an email from Russia ending with the words 'sent from my mobile apparatus'. I have of course now deleted said email for fear that such is indeed an infection in my computer.

Received the samples today, Sharon. Wonder how a parcel can take three weeks to get across the North Sea -- but all the more happy I was to see it on my desk at work. Obviously I didn't whip up a lather in front of my computer here, but I can safely say that the scents are most pleasurable! Particular mentions to Down Home Summer (seems a perfect summer vetiver) and Arabian Nights.

Search me Halvor; although I do remember having one parcel doing a detour to Australia on it's way from here to France. Right now I'm getting quite a few orders from Russia, which has me on tenterhooks, as their postal system seems to have a lot of problems with stuff going missing.
Anyway, glad your's has finally arrived, and I hope you enjoy the shave.

The Australian detour is easy to explain! If you're pushed for time and/or there's a backlog of sorting to be done, just chuck a difficult parcel into the 'Australia' bag - takes ages to come back and be difficult again.
