Any reason for 3x3 packs?
These hard soaps last a very long time.
I have muhle sea buckthorn and EJ limes/pomegranate.

Many people comment that these are average soaps but I have no issue in getting a slick, rich lather from them. Nice scents too!!

I have too many sandalwood soaps but I'll likely get aloe vera at some point.
I had to order online from overseas and shipping was long ao I figured if I was going to pay for overseas shipping it makes more sense to order several to reduce shipping costs.
I really love the soaps and it cost me $25.50au for each pack wereas 3 soaps in aus are $45. These daya I just buy everything in bulk where possible.

Fair enough!
I did the same thing with MWF and Speick soaps. Bulk purchase to distribute shipping cost...this however was well before I had my current 120 soap rotation though.

The only soap I purchased in the last year was SV Stella alpina, otherwise I'm on a software sabbatical.

That's pretty intense.

I want to but a barrister and mann reserve soap and also to try colonal conk.

One is expensive and one is cheap but I want to see what products in different price brackets can give you.

I gave cheap nivia sensitive shave cream $3.50 a tube and it is amazing. So I can appreciate that a good soap can be cheap too. My current stash will take years though so any in between products will be to just try out then put aside.

It's good to try different things, that's the fun of this hobby :)

Personally, I've tried basically so the soaps that are classified "elite" and found no difference compared to other soaps, especially the traditional hard/milled soaps, other than they may be easier to work with in terms of loading/lathering but the end result is about the same.

I like a pleasant scent, it doesn't have to be a high class cologne type scent, just pleasant. Many of the modern artisan soaps overdo the scents (I have had more skin reactions from artisan soaps than traditional soaps) or they are a hit or miss, so even this aspect doesn't make me hunt down soaps.

One brand that I would like to have the complete collection of is saponificio varesino as I have 5 and just love the scent of each one in its own way as they are all unique to each other.

The dream setup is always one step away isn't it?

I have to say that the stremgth of a scemt doesn't matter too much tp me because afer you shave and put on aftershave it's gone anyway but I love the scent of the soaps I bought. Very mild.
