When I first opened the Toulouse soap, I was incredibly disappointed. I thought it smelled like my grandmothers' candles, or my sister's shampoo. Just kind of a feminine fruity smell. I put it on the shelf and forgot about it for a while.
When I came back to this soap and actually tried it, I stood corrected. The first thing I noticed was the lather just exploded out of the bowl effortlessly. Once wet, it seemed I opened up the scent and discovered how pleasant and unique it truly is. And when applied to my face, this soap was cushiony, silky soft. My favorite is the contrast between the tropical smell and the manly tobacco. This, combined with a slight menthol cooling effect made this soap one of my favorites. I believe I will continue to buy this soap as long as Soap Smooth keeps making it! A definite must have for me.
