    Just tried the Irving Park from Oleo after reading about the soaps. It's a very good shave: good lather and great glide, and the scent is a a little different, but good. (I had to try it, having lived on Irving Park Rd in the Windy City for a number of years.) Its scent is masculine. Excellent soap worthy of first tier status IMO. Again, thanks to Obie.

    Irving Park's scent is inspired by Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche, one of my favorite scents, and probably the best fougère EdT ever made.

    I have a tub of Frankie and Myrna on deck to try when it comes up in rotation. Dead on incense scent! Also a sample of Windy City Barber. Interesting barber shop that sets in an industrial area smell! Irving Park scent sounds really nice!

    I tried Klar Seifen Classic soap for the first time today. Definitely a stellar performer but, I don't think I'm too keen on the scent. Sort of metallic maybe? Like a metallic scented L'Occitane shave soap. LOL Going to use it for a few more days to see if my nose may grow to appreciate that part of it. I doubt it.

    I got to fill out a Secret Santa wish list.
    The budget was low to allow kids to play but I had fun picking out way too many choices
    of shave soaps for who ever gets my name.
    Thanks all and may we all look like Santa with our favorite lather and BB-smooth after the shave.
