    Default What Are The BEST Shower gels Around?

    I know I have seen this many times
    someone will claim that the shower gel is better than the cologne itself!

    I was just wondering if you folks had some input on this
    what are some of the quality shower gels around?
    let us know!

    One of my favourites has to be the Clinique Happy shower gel. It's damm refreshing after a hard days work. Too bad it's much more expensive compared to the regular drug store shower gels, otherwise it would have been a staple in my bathroom.

    The best shower gel EVER was New West. The scent wasn't even close to the cologne, which I didn't particularly like. Unfortunately it wasn't brought back along with the current reissue of the cologne.

    The one's that I've tried are

    Terre D'hermes - extremely strong and very nice indeed
    M7 - really good as well
    Kouros - meh


    I would love to try some Antaeus shower gel....

    Can someone also suggest some really nice fragrance shower gel for summer? Thanks
    I'd try to get some Clinique Happy bath gel.

    Shower gels should smell good of course, but they also need to be gentle in their cleansing; I find that Creed makes a very high quality product, Erolfa being my absolute favorite one.
    Diptyque also makes a very high quality SG, Tam Dao is so luxurious.
    Comme des Garcons 3 Man is great as it has such a strong scent that one doesn't need to use any fragrance afterwards.

    On a similar note, are there any ordinary showergels that compete with the upmarket?

    I quite like Himalaya Mist (pine extract & cedarwood "foaming shower gel sensation") from Rituals. It certainly smells great and is very silky. They make other combinations which I have yet to try (sweet orange & cedarwood, green tea & cherry blossom, mandarin & mint, eucalyptus & rosemary,...).

    More expensive than grocery store shower gels but great smell: Molton Brown's line, and I like Artic Birch and Hot Pepper Recharge, or something like that (the names may be wrong)

    I must admit that I am extremely picky about everything.

    However, Target has just introduced their new Up and Up line replacing the old Target Circle logo. The Target knock-off of Dove moisturizing cooling body wash lathers great, provides me with a very refreshing clean cooling feeling and best of all costs about $2.99 USD for 24 Ounces. I really enjoy it.

    In my opinion, the ones by Bourjois.

    I was using this brand Fa in the past, they have a good range, and they smell fantastic IMO.

    However, I switched to Neutogena's Rainbath in recent years, and haven't looked back since.

    I second the vote for Neutrogena's Rainbath.

    Also, Black Pepper and Silverbirch by Molton Brown.

    I guess this is on topic - Has anyone tried out the $75 Vetiver Extraordinaire or Bigarade shower gels?

    The VE Showergel ist extremely good. It smells similar to the perfume.

    I have the Vetiver shower gel by Guerlain, which ist quite good as well. More citrus than the Eau de Toilette. I also own the Eau Sauvage shower gel. This one has a strong anis note I can't detect in the Eau.

    I like the Yves Rocher Pur Desir shower gels...I got a bunch on sale for $5. I'm constantly going on about this line, but it really is quite good!!

    I love Mugler Cologne shower gel too...and Malle's Bigarade, but it's too $$$.

    For more cheapie Target shower gels, I am absolutely in love with the scent of their Every Man Jack Cedarwood shower gel.

    I recently snapped up some Miller Harris Terre de Bois shower gel that was on sale at a local store. Unfreakinbelievable!

    And, a friend recently gifted me with Strange Invisible Perfumes Vetiver Lavender Life-changing Body Wash. Love the scent, it moisturizes the skin well but it's kind of thin and the only change to my life of late is I caught a cold.

    Yet another vote for Molton Brown, esp. the Black Pepper one. They are a bit on the pricey side, though. I also really like Korres Juniper and Rum Body Wash.

    I'm a long-time fan (25+ years) of the Doctor Bronner's line of liquid and bar soaps. They are the best - and they smell nice too!

    Magno. It is not too widely available, but you can check the link here. Not too expensive, either. It has a nice woody, base note aroma that works great with almost any fragrance you might care to wear.

    I'm always on the lookout for an excellent shower gel.

    Diptyque Tam Dao shower gel is excellent, and I would say works better than the fragrance which is too harsh. The shower gel is more subdued but lasts for a good long time. Shower gel is a bit expensive though.

    I use L'Occitane's Lavender and also the Honey Lemon showergels. The other shower gel that I find amazing is Neal's Yard Remedies Orange and Geranium.

    I can't get enough VIW in the summer so any shower product with coconut. I mostly use unscented shower/shampoo/deodorant and apply frag later.
    I post lots from my I phone so if this looks like a text message that's why ( :

    Lately I've been on a Crabtree & Evelyn kick. I've had these around for a while, and just got around to trying them. All three that I have seem pretty good. Lather well, and don't have an overpowering scent I'm currently using Sandalwood, and have also have Sienna, and Nomad which were given to me as a gift. Their bar soaps are pretty good too.
    Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....

    Another vote for M7 in shower gel. I owned the gel first, and it made me run out and buy the fragrance. There's just something about the combination of the hot steam and M7's notes that is just perfection.

    L'eau Bleue d'Issey - as an edt, it was a bundle of conflicting notes. Somehow, as a shower gel, it gathered up all its elements and made it work magnificently. Loved that cedar/verbena combo in the steam.

    Virgilio by Diptyque - as an edt, it was all kitchen herbs on me. As a bath product, it was a green, green paradise.

    I love the L'Occitanes... Vetyver, Eau des Baux, etc. Prada Amber PH is great, and my treasured one that seems to have vanished from retailers is Helmut Lang. The cosmetic company Peter Thomas Roth makes good ones as well.

    Lately though I've gone old-school and gotten back into bar soaps. Before shower gels the houses made soaps, and you can still find some vintage ones and a few made today. Habit Rouge, Chanel Cristalle, and Dior Jules are a few I recently bought. I also dig SMN soaps (patchouli, vetiver) and Caswell Massey Sandalwood soap.

    The shower gel was amazing. I like the fragrance too though. There never was a re-issue. New West never was discontinued it was just sold in fewer locations mostly in California. It's funny I've been buying and wearing Havana and New West fresh for the last 10 years or so and everyone always comments on how they have been discontinued. Bloomingdales in NY has always had them. Even Aramis 900 herbal.

    I like Dial Magnetic a lot. Women arent following me around or launching themselves at me but I like the way it smells and makes my skin feel.

    Cheers,
