    I've recently bought some rather nice Saponifico Varesino 70th Anniv. bath soap and feel like this could be another rabbit hole to fall down so what do people on here like?

    I know there's a shower gel thread but I felt a solid soap thread was justified - If not, could the mods please shift this into there.

    Floris do some nice ones:)

    Always worth checking out TK Maxx, they get some right random stuff in there including SV products (not their shaving stuff though that I've seen).

    Another vote for SV products in TK Maxx. Check out the SV website and it will also show you other soaps they make for other companies, and marketed by TK Maxx. We use all their soaps in the house, excellent products.

    Mysore Sandal soap is my usual bath soap. I love it in the evening - a proper Mysore sandalwood scent that lasts on the skin until bedtime!

    I've just bought 10 bars of this from ebay. Looking forward to using it.

    MWF bath soap is simply marvellous. Leaves the skin feeling great and has the scent and aura of yesteryear about it. Rather nicer whiff than the shaving soap. Great big bars too. Another recommendation would be Christina May Traditional English Soaps https://christinamay.com/product-category/gift-soaps/

    Extra large 200g bars of sheer wonder!

    I bought a few bars of this years ago, to use for washing prior to using ToBS Sandalwood soap for a shave. The power of the Mysore just kicked the absolute arse out of any scent from the ToBS. I also like the was it pervades the bathroom and the drawer where I keep my stash. Strong stuff.

    "Lano" is a budget lanolin soap that I love, but if you can shell out for it, then the MWF bath soap is excellent.

    Mysore Sandal is a good shout, very potent stuff and you can sometimes pick it up reasonably at Indian supermarkets. If you have any Indian supermarkets near you they are well worth checking out, I've had some really great ones at a good price or for nostalgia they often have the original scented Lifebuoy.
    My personal favourite is Grandpa's Pine tar soap, it's also pretty good to wash your hair or beard in too. I also really like the black Magno soap from La Toja, Scottish Fine soaps are good and Nanny's Silly Soaps do great bath soaps too. If you are a bit of an Arko fan the Duru soaps are a nice match (and no, not too much toilet cleaner smell :happy:).

    Scottish Fine Soaps do an Oatmeal & Honey soap which is a very good for exfoliation but the soap component is excellent. It's very creamy and moisturising.

    image.jpeg White Musk scented £3.99 at TKMax, smells great. Loads of other soaps there, well worth a look.

    I'm not long finished a bar of that, very nice it was too. If you see the Scottish Fine Soaps Oatmeal & Honey, it's really good.

    I don't do much in terms of reviews of soaps - bath or shaving - but I feel compelled to do one about Wickham's line of soap by @Fox
    They are that good.
