    Default floris

    Obie, I don't see mention of Floris soaps and wondered if you had not tried this soap or rate it as tier 3. For me this would easily beat a number of your T2 soaps?

    Daro, yes, Floris belongs in the Second Tier. Thanks for the reminder. I continue to add to the tiers the soaps and creams that I have used but forgotten about. Floris is a good soap, but not exceptional.

    Has anyone used L'Occitanne Cade soap? Got it for X-mas and find it to be a superb performer. Super easy to lather, slick shave and nice scent.

    Yes, it's a good soap. Very hard, but lathers easily, but not as easily as Valobra hard soaps. It is an excellent buy at $12 for the refill puck.

    Cheers, Steve

    Yes, got the hard puck and the cream in a jar. Both work very well for me.

    Thank you for spiking my memory. Yes, that is a good soap, but I find it nothing spectacular. I'll include it in the Second Tier.

    thanks Obie I would agree, albeit high on my T2 list. After this change I can't fault your list
    I have about 60% of your T1 selection in my rotation and just added CF Lime and CS 88 in fancy aluminium bowl as I was on the fence and your post drove me to it. (At least that is what I will tell the boss if she finds out ) 😀 Now to add the other 5 I don't have. Will try get rid of the T2 soaps to make it less obvious

    Super soap. Top tier for me. Cade scent also has an AS. Yes it is a hard soap, lasts forever.

    Yeah, been using it almost exclusively since X-mas and I can still see the printing stamped on top!
    Also got their Vetyver EDT and it is a nice, soft scent. Comes on strong when first put on but fades to a nice background scent quickly.
    Have a store near me, I'll have to stop in and sample the Cade AS.

    I understand Obie not putting it the top tier, but at least for straight shavers maybe the line is not so sharp.

    Cade, PdP, SdBB (Volcans) are in a class of hard white soaps that produce a lower volume yet super slick lather that's very appealing. They very much lather like I Coloniali Mango but all with simpler French fragrances.

    Cheers, Steve
