    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 I’ve 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 I’m using shower creams by Le Petit Marsellais. I’ve 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 don’t 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.

    I always use nicely scented hand soap, bar soap, shower gel, hand creme, etc. but I try to be economical about it. I usually get them at the only "high-end" store within 30 miles of me - TJ Maxx. I had occasion recently to add an Ulta body wash to my stash, a soapy and really nice fragrant White Flowers scent. I also use a lot of Crabtree & Evelyn products - right now I've got Summer Hill body wash, Iris body lotion, and my favorite Nantucket Briar hand creme.
    I'm using Carven Ma Griffe bar soap that I picked up at a yard sale. I love that fragrance but the stuff is pretty old now. I also had to pick up a Castelbel Porto bar soap I found at TJ Maxx. I had noticed that Roberto from Portugal uses that brand of products sometimes so it caught my eye. The scent is called Bird of Paradise and I don't know what that scent is supposed to smell like, but the fragrance is divine. I'm just going to sniff it for a while before I use it.
    I also accidentally bought Kenneth Cole Signature after shave balm thinking it was something else. Hey, for 3 bucks, why not. I'm single so I think I'll try to use it after I shave my legs and see how it goes.
    I've used a lot of different brands of shower gel or body wash over the years, but I keep coming back to simple $4 Caress. It's been around forever, it's moisturizing, it comes in nice scents, and I'm happy with it.

    I decided to use the Kenneth Cole Signature after shave balm after I shaved my underarms instead of my legs. Good thing. I now have me some manly green-smelling armpits.
