    Yep. And I am pretty sure that they have a spray fragrance also available in the US now (it was exclusive to the UK before). I saw it on their US website last week. I will check it out at the Lush store today (It is literally right below my office lol)

    I bought some Dior Homme Shower Gel off eBay (this one isn't easy to find). Looking forward to using it!

    Bar soaps - In the past Iíve used Santa Maria Novella Melograno. Heavenly.

    Ivory - yes, plain, old school Ivory bath soap. Nostalgically simple and good.

    The lovely Five Oaks Bouquet once gifted me a box of Roger & Gallet soaps in the carnation scent. They were beautiful and long lasting. A wrapped bar placed on my closet shelf subtly perfumed the entire space.

    Currently Iím using shower creams by Le Petit Marsellais. Iíve bought them through Amazon in the past but am delighted to see that my local Duane Reade and Stop & Shop now carry them. I love the orange blossom, the lavender honey, and the vanilla milk scents. They are gentle and donít clash with my SOTD.

    Fracas shower cream is divine.

    The Rose Jam fragrance gave me a bit of a headache after a couple of hours. I will try it again to make sure that it was the fragrance & not something else...

    I absolutely love the Dior Homme Shower Gel! I am glad I bought it (it wasn't cheap...$41 is a lot for shower gel). The iris note and the plush gourmand facets are yummy in a shower - very comforting. Just the right amount of scent, but not too persistent post-shower.

    I am eyeing some Egoiste Shower Gel, but gosh I can't find some cheaper than $60...that's a lot of $!

    I just bought some Tauer soaps. They're charcoal/glycerin...and they smell incredibly good. The scents are called Data Miner and Solar Engineer. Highly recommended. Luckyscent has them. $15.

    Here's a line I discovered in Whole Foods' market:

    For a really embracing experience, the eucalyptus/sea salt is great. It's my husband's favorite for shaving and showering. We ordered a loaf to cut at home.

    I think it's probably the best of the handcrafted type soaps I've tried. Not affiliated, BTW.

    Recently bought a bar of Cleopatra soap from ebay having heard about it for years. Apparently it's not "what it used to be" but I'm enjoying it. Lovely, tasteful un-soapy fragrance even if its a bit light.
