    I have been using Molton Brown's Black Pepper Recharge recently and it is the most invigorating shower gel i've ever tried. I will definitely try more from their range (Fresh Bushukan will be probably next).

    Black Pepper is invigorating as you say. Try blissful templetree. A favorite of mine.

    I've used a couple Philosophy ones and I don't enjoy them as much as Molton Brown. Although, I do enjoy their "Butterscotch Bliss" shampoo that can be used as a body wash.

    I have to say Anthony Logistics Spice Body wash is A+, but when I'm poor, I stick with Excite from Axe. Boo!

    Dior Homme shower gel is amazing. I got it as gift and was very impressed how good it smelled. Of course I'm also a fan of DH fragrance.

    Lately, I have also developed a fondness for Yves Rocher shower gels: mainly the lime, the orange, the olive oil, the lavender and the vetiver ones.

    Shower gels have two purposes.

    The cheap ones and non-desgner ones are used for washing the body all over with those scrunchy net applicators, and they do a great job around the neck and in underarms compared to soap by itself. But they are subaverage for removing suntan lotion. My favourite is currently Batman.

    The designer ones are used for layering scents into skin pores - they are not meant for washing all over. At the end of a shower, apply a small amount to a sponge, get out of the shower stream, apply all over, then quickly jump back under the shower and rinse off. The scent will last for many hours, and come flooding out when you perspire a bit (e.g. from dancing).

    This is the reason that those tiny tubes of shower gel you get in gift sets are very useful - they aren't meant to be used up in one or two washes.

    Just some comment on the Molton Brown shower gels. If you are a fan on Rive Gauche PH, I urge you to try out their Suma Ginseng. It's not spot on the same, but it has that "ambery fougere" thing going on. Would be a good base layer to RGPH or Azzaro.

    Bracing Silverbirch goes well with Declaration, but I'm not a huge fan. I'm finishing up a bottle now and after that I don't think we will get any more.

    I like the Citrus ones, obviously. Bushukan smells spot on like traditional Eau de Cologne to me, like Jean Marie Farina without the rose. AB+C is Orange Blossom and thats pretty much it, nice but not as good as Toko-Yuzu which I would say is best of the 3, I do wish they'd make a fragrance version of that one.

    I also like Yuan Zhi, its loaded to the brim with Ylang Ylang and I'm not usually a big florals fan but this one I like. My wife seems to arrange for there to always be a bottle of the Eucalyptus in the house, which is good, because I have way too many mornings where I just want to go back to sleep and this one is great wake up juice.

    But my absolute favourite of theirs is Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod. Its marketed at women, and its pink just to drive the point home... but its about as close to unisex a scent as they make. Balmy, spicy and not too peppery.

    We are going to stick to buying the last 3, plus Templetree which is my wifes fav, because we mainly buy a French brand that smells great and is stupid cheap, La Compagnie de Provence. Their Verbena is just great stuff.

    No gels at all !

    Am I the only one in here to prefer regular soaps ? The following are my favourite soaps:
    (1) Green Mountain Soap Bayberry
    (2) Martin de Candre Fougère
    (3) Fine Scottish Soaps

    But most of the time I prefer handmade unscented soaps.

    Soaps are good too.

    Shower gels and loofas (plastics mesh things) may be the best thing there is for cleaining one's neck area, but shower gels are generally subaverage at getting rid of suntan lotion.

    For luxury, I like my Aramis soap bar. My wife hates Aramis EDT, but likes the smell from Aramis soap.

    No designer stuff for me because I can't afford them. I shower at least 2 times and sometimes 3 times a day so it can get very expensive if I use designer. I just use Nivea for Men and Nivea in-shower body lotion.

    That body scrub and Power Refresh look pretty good. I haven't seen either one of those here in the States. I know in Germany Nivea has tons of mens products that aren't available elsewhere. Where are you buying these?

    It looks like the body scrub is available at Walgreens after all. I'll be checking that stuff out.

    I get some of Nivea men when I travel overseas. The Nivea body scrub are available at Walmart. I usually scrub twice a week. If I'm out of the Power Refresh then I just use the other 2 Niveas.

    Love their body washes. I think they have three in large bottles now, all worth it.
