    I'd also like to mention Stirling soaps. Great lather, not very much money, you can get unscented or ones with great scents, or even their Executive Man scent which sort of resembles Creed Aventus, or Sharp Dressed Man which sort of resembles Green Irish Tweed. Their aftershaves are very good too.

    I like Tabac Original bar soap, it has a decent smell (but it actually lasts a while on the skin, but very faint smell). Should be easily available.
    Than there is Kappus Sandalwood in my bath room, inexpensive but lovely. Might not be available in the US.
    ATM I'm using the Lush's Devil's Nightcap, which includes oakmoss ectracts and absolute as well as the whole lichen. Orange Blossom absolute makes it fresh enough.
    Maja spicy soap from Spain is another one I am using for years now, as well as the German Dralle GewŁrzseife, first should be available overseas, latter maybe not.

    Btw, Dove bars are actually no bar soaps, they are syndets, that's why they have low pH. Real soap is always alkaline.

    Kirk's Castile Soap is a great product. I've used it for the past four years or so. Funny thing is...the reason I tried it for the first time is because I was out of town for a meeting and I forgot soap. Instead of going to the big "W", I finished dinner at Cracker Barrel and I was scoping out the beauty products area and there it was.....Kirk's Castile Soap. It has a great natural smell and it doesn't dry my skin out. It lathers up like whipped cream .

    The only con is that one bar doesn't last real long.....IMO.

    Check it out!

    My go to bar soap is Mystic Waters. I came upon them from my shave site, and use the shampoo bars too. Nice soaps!
    Best wishes,

    I have a couple bars of Castelbel Champs de Lavande (Lavender Fields, I've seen it labeled in french and english) that I got from Marshall's.
    It's good portuguese stuff that smells just like the lavender in Azzaro. The scent fills up the shower pretty good, and is a great pair to amp up the lavender in your manly fougeres

    I would also like to say that I tried Stirling soaps and wasn't impressed. Yeah they smell nice but in my hard water at least they didn't lather very well either in the tub or on my face for shaving. Also they are very soft so they are gone in no time.
