    Already heard back from Wholly Kaw. Below is what what they said regarding ordering samples not on the list.

    From email:
    For the samples, just pick any scent from the drop down box. Before
    check out write a note in the notes section asking us to sub the scent
    from the drop down with a scent you want. We can do the substitution
    on our end.
    Just as a heads up, for the scents that are not listed in the drop
    down box the labels for the samples are hand written. Hope that is
    okay.


    I will have this on it's way soon and will post opinions.

    Here's a quick question on this subject. Forgive me if this is not the place for it.

    Has anyone come across a soap company called Soap Smooth? I have a tub of their Frankincense and Myrrh coming from Mrs Porl for Christmas and was wondering where it comes on this tier system.

    I tried searching fro the company on here but strangely searching for Soap and Smooth on a shaving forum brings up more than a couple of results.

    Thank you.

    To answer my own question, this is from customer service at Wholly Kaw:

    Donkey Milk takes the formulation of the tallow soap to a new level -
    during shave, creaminess of the lather and the post-shave. Donkey
    Milk's amino acid profile and fatty acid content helps in providing the
    extra qualities in the creaminess and it excels in post shave in that
    the face is even more hydrated and moisturized.

    Other users have experienced the extra moisturization and hydration.
    They have also reported that donkey milk soap helps them recover from a
    prior bad shave.

    Nice...
    If no sample pack look for the refill pucks and pass on the sometimes too expensive special container.
    The smallish food storage containers or zip-lock bags allow storing a lot more different soaps
    and keep them from presenting a mixed blast of conflicting smells.

    The good shave soaps do age well. Store them in something like a freezer bag but I use the
    zippy sandwich bags because I have them.
    Be sure to label and air dry the puck before putting it away.

    It is astounding how long a puck can last....
    In some cases long enough to miss the discontinuation sale ;-(
    If you find a winner that you love check and keep your stock full.

    The market is fickle and one of my favorites vanished on me.
    Too many single star ratings (like two)... because it was not 'strong' enough
    but I loved it because the lather was +5 and the fragrance not
    too heavy. My gal could smell it with a kiss but I did not leave a
    room full of selfish me smell.

    Today I tried Wholly Kaw for the first time.

    King of Oud was today's soap.

    From a shave standpoint, the lather, cushion, glide and slickness were superb. Dare I say as good, if not a little better than MDC. The post shave feel that it leaves your face with is outstanding. Not even a little tickle from the alum. Hours later, my face feels fresh and hydrated.

    From the scent standpoint, King of Oud is robust, to say the least. It kinda reminds me of an amped up Tabac. I shave before I shower in the morning. It is almost 5:00pm and I can still smell it, even after washing my face several times. It might be likeable for me if it was about a quarter of it's strength, but at full bore it's not my cup of tea. If anyone wants a sample, just P.M. me or it will be on the giveaway table at the next meetup I go to.

    I can't wait till tomorrows shave to try the Dark Vetiver. By the way that it smells, it will be much more to my liking.

    So I found this kinda funny and a bit interesting.

    The wife comes down from upstairs and says "I can still smell that King of Oud soap in the bathroom." So I head upstairs and she's right. I can still smell it too. I found out that it was the brush that I used acting as an air freshener. Could still smell it in the shave bowl too. So what's the fix?
    I got the brush and bowl and proceed to make a lather with a good ol' bar of Ivory Soap.
    What I found very interesting was how good of a lather that I whipped up with it.
    Out of curiosity I had to wet my face and lather up. It felt like it had good cushion, glide and slickness.
    Whoda thunk??

    Oh, by the way, the smell is completely gone from the bowl and brush.

    I got a feeling that the good feelings you were getting from the Ivory was left over from the Oud. I could be wrong but I tried to lather with a few bath soaps and had no luck. This was when I fist started wet shaving so It might have just been me.

    BTW, That must REALLY be a strong scent! Cool!
