    Default Ivory soap bottled as a cologne/oil? Where?

    Hi everyone;

    Lots of people like the just out of the shower ivory soap smell. Especially me. But, it does not last. I'd wish they would bottle it into a cologne - it would be a favorite of mine.

    I have tried thus far - Demeter Pure Soap and a body oil with an ivory type soap smell (marketed that way). This smells great on a woman-typical wearers of this range from about 35-55 years old and when wearing Demeter or pure grace it make me want to linger around that person a bit longer. It truly draws me in.

    Demeter Pure Soap on me - almost but not quite. A bit flowery and almost like a "perfume" and for the ladies I would think. Dries powdery and bit sweet. Just a little to flowery for a man.

    Ivory Soap "type oil" - almost but not quite there. Here again close, but acceptable for a man.

    Question - has anyone come across a good cologne or body oil that duplicate the scent of ivory soap?
    Thanks!

    Helpful. Thanks- Gendarme sample ordered. Will post after trying.

    I do want to target the ivory soap scent - these will probably come as near as possible.

    I could also try another oil but from a different manufacturer.

    Chemistry by Clinique. Although I must say, Puro Lino is wonderful, but it smells like an expensive soap not necessarily like Ivory brand soap. The Clinique does.

    The two soapiest that I've tried are Estee Lauder Pleasures for Men, and Vera Wang for Men. The latter earned the fragrance classification of "soapy nightmare" in Perfumes: The Guide. My son thinks that one tastes like shampoo, too (don't ask ).
