Which TOBS soaps to try?

All, at the risk of asking for very subjective opinions i still would like to see if i can be pointed into the right direction in getting some nice TOBS products.

Here is my issue, i have two TOBS products, and being in Holland i do not have the option to smell before i buy so i buy based on text and reviews which in general leads to hits and misses. I have the Jermyn Street and the Sandalwood which present themselves at the polar opposites of my soap spectrum. the Jermyn Street is arguably my favorite soap both as it performs very well but the scent is so good and to me so premium/Exclusive (enough to eat) ;) . I also got the Sandalwood because of its many good reviews and reputation as a global standard for sandalwood products. However i dont like it. I have the prorasso Red which i love, but the TOBS really smells to be as very much over perfumed and also it disagrees with my skin and gives irritation (so not razorburn but the perfume irritates), i now use the TOBS sandalwood to defunk my badgers only.

so would very much like to find some more excellent scents but the list is so long that i dont know where to start.

i like Barbershop scents, i love Prorasso green and red and white , Jermyn Street, PAA Awesome sauce, Tabac, PAA Future Fiction, Scheermonnik Delfts Wit,

i tend not to like so much the real sweet scents.

What would be a good suggestion for next TOBS tub? thanks for your suggestion and again i realize this is always personal preference and very subjective(y)

I like the TOBS Eton College Collection but i would suggest getting yourself samples rather than buying on speck.
I don’t actually have enough tobs or i would have sent you a few samples out.
If your in to Barbershop scents,
i would say, Shaving Station i’m collaboration with OSP, Belgravia Barbershop to be very good &
House Of Mammoth HYGGE both class

+1 for the Eton College. I don't have the soap but the splash is first class all the way. An old school/barber shop type of scent.

Haven't used their Soaps for years and no real yearning to do so
