For Manly Men

Sorry, ladies.

Sarsparilla and sweetgrass, worn saddle leather, tobacco smoke and the remains of a spicy lime cologne.




A slightly psychotic blend of sweet cinnamon, rich cardamom, spicy ginger, and a faint touch of innocent vanilla.




Teasing touches of revitalizing mints - spearmint, cornmint, peppermint - grounded with a rich base note of black tea, and barely sweetened with soft vanilla.




Well-worn sweaty leather, the acrid smoke of cigarettes, and a soft side of honey and vanilla.




Swamp moss and fresh-turned earth with a ruthless heart of vetiver, and a distinguished splash of bay rum.

I just want to know how someone got into my head and knows all my favorite scents? I'm not just bookmarking it, it's going to be the only place I shop (yes, and I'm a woman)

You and Bean use different soaps?

Man, that is harsh.

As a girl who keeps pipe tobacco laying around just because it smells SOOOOO GOOOOD, I will purchase these and leave them in hubby's bathroom. he's been looking for a new scent, so hopefully he won't think I'm saying he stinks.

I need to get my husband some of these. He is soooo anti-frangrance, but maybe he'll dig some manlier scents.

wow, gonna have to buy the 12-soap sampler, because I don't think I could limit myself to only one or two based on the descriptions alone!

I have tried each of these scents in one form or another, with the exception of Quick and the Dead, and I am a girl. This company is awesome, and they have a very dedicated fanbase becaue of it. I adore all of these scents mentioned, but, I offer a word of caution on Grundy. It smells like what I imagine a New Orleans cemetary would smell like. It has an extremely strong earthy/soddy aroma at first. After it mellows on your skin it becomes this intensely odd and gorgeous lightly spiced, barely citrus hinted, potting soil scent. Imagine showering off after a day in the garden, then applying a tiny splash of bay rum. It sounds weird, but, I've become a bit addicted to it. The other scents are just flat out amazing too!
