    Default What's your favourite shower gel?

    I'm assuming most, if not all, of you take a shower frequently and I wondered if the fragrance obsession extended to this as well.

    Is fragrance not even important or do you prefer unscented?

    Personally I always have a few on the go, some I've bought, others gifts. I've so far resisted the Creed ones as they're just too expensive for me.

    Favourites so far have been:-
    Armani ADG
    Armani Code
    Crabtree and Evelyn West Indian Lime
    Neutrogena Rainbath

    I'm about to get some Mugler Cologne gel but are there any other good ones to try?

    Luxury today. Eau d"Hermes Coppertop Bodywash and Eau d'Hermes 2001 Vintage Coppertop.

    I use Amouage Jubilation 25 Body Wash when I wear the perfume.

    I have a Armani Eau Pour Monsieur Body wash and Bar Soap from the 90's that I use when I wear the Vintage.

    Most of the time I use Pear's Castille or an inexpensive Sandalwood soap. However I have some 70's Vintage Monsieur Lanvin (Civet) body soap when I wear that cologne.

    For Shaving I use Proraso Red Sandalwood, Musgo Real Oakmoss cream and Trumper's Eucris cream.

    Often use unscented, however..

    Own three Molton Browns, which are great: Mesmerising Oudh Accord &Gold, Tobacco Absolute, Orange & Bergamot. They are very good gels, a little goes a long way and the fragrance lasts.

    Fragrance shower gels - Cartier seem to do very good shower gels, at least Declation d'un Soir I have has very strong and lasting fragrance to it. Very good quality.

    I had AdP Colonia Essenza from a gift set and that was very runny. Not sure if it was just my tube.

    Eau Sauvage - fragrance faithful to the EDT but obviously light. Nice, though.

    Also have some Zegna Acqua di Bergamotto shower gel - very nice and very good.

    Occasionally I buy a shower gel or fancy soap, but the majority of the time it's Dr. Bronner's (bar soap) for me.

    I've been on a sandalwood soap kick lately, but when I use shower gel I like unscented Aveeno sensitive skin (or skin relief maybe?). It's got the light green cap. No loofah or facecloth either, just lather with my hands. It's excellent for the cold dry winters we have.

    I've been curious to try some of the Amouage shower gel, specifically the men's Dia and Gold. Expensive though!

    I love to try different scented shower gels.

    Yves Rocher makes a very nice, light vetiver one: Vetiver Cuir. Love it and have gone through several bottles. Never tried the spray fragrance so I don't know who they compare.

    Frederic Malle's Vetiver Extraordinaire is another good one. The gel feel almost oily, like it's crammed with fragrance essences. Powerfully fragrant and with a citrus kick that is missing from the spray perfume.

    Happy Buddha shower "foam" by Rituals with orange and cedarwood is another favourite.

    Depending on the weather and occasion, I enjoy Kiehl's Musk, Molton Brown Black Pepper, or Archipelago Boticario de Havana. When I'm showering for the night after a workout, I really enjoy the whole Dove Men+ Care line. Clean Comfort is an all-time favorite scent regardless of origin.

    I own way too many as I always talk my way into getting them from department stores when i buy a bottle so 95% of mine are free

    The only one I'm willing to pay for and absolutely love is the 4711 shower gel, it's just so refreshing, otherwise I've never felt the need to pay for one, I don't think the scent lasts more than a few minutes
    My top 30

    1. Gucci Envy / D&G By Man
    2. MFK Baccarat Rouge 540 /Cedrat Boise
    3. Costarela / TFK Arab Spring

    I use the Dove with shea butter from Costco

    If I were to drop the money for a shower gel based on a scent, something like Eau d'Hermes would be nice.

    Too many to mention.
    At the gym, I mostly mix Le Labo bath oils with Eucerin shower gel (favorites are Patchouli and Ylang). Bandit shower gel is another favorite, as dark as the perfume.
    I've also been enjoying Chanels (Egoiste and Antaeus), Diors (Fahrenheit), Amouage (Gold), and Farmacia SS Annunziata (tobacco).

    I just use Dove unscented bar soap, but when I used shower gel I loved Axe Touch (which is discontinued, but lives on in Sauvage) and the Acqua di Gio showergel.
