    Phrank,
    On your recommendation, I ordered a tub of the Holy Black Gunpowder and Spice soap. Looking forward to trying it.

    I was impressed with THB gunpowder spice at first. Still have it. I was probably among the first ones to get some of their stuff when they started, or at least back then, there wasn't much talk about them. I won't say anything, see how you fare

    My order did arrive fairly quickly, of course, it's the only soap you can order from them, the "legendary" Lavender Creep, Regents and another one, some selling for $300 USD on ebay, were one off releases. But I did read they had some major customer service issues a few years back, one of the owners had an illness or something, but I know there are a ton of threads on various other forums about the various soaps and matching aftershaves, as well as discussions around the products and customer service.

    It's great stuff in my opinion, spent an hour looking to try and find the Lavender Creep, which is supposed to be simply mind blowing, as well as a 100 year old recipe soap they made with Caswell or something...gone in hours, saw one going on eBay a week or so ago.....superb soap IMO in every way, you won't be disappointed....

    Phrank: I used Dawn and hot water three times in succession to vanquish the horrible smell. It worked.

    Prank: the stinky brush smell. I have been lucky enough to not have bad smelling shaving soaps. I suspect you are poking me in the ribs. Humor is great.
    Is there any bay rum scented soaps that you like. I'm old enough that that scent appeals to me.

    Wow. Just...wow.

    Unless it's some first batch "De Vergulde Hand", no shaving soap is worth that much.
