Just picked mine up, wonderful packaging and a free sample too, just wish I knew what it was..
Yh I had the same issue I think it is either fougere bath soap or shaving soap. Look forward to hearing your thoughts @Holyzeus its a winner IMO, double dip that brush when loading too.
Such a shame the Vetyver has gone
No more Rose left now from MdC
I think it's strange they say they won't make more of these two scents, considering how fast they sold out of both.
I must admit I was a little surprised myself... Having done some digging into old MDC posts online it would appear the fougere scent came about the same way, initially released as a "limited edition" it sold so well they decided to make it a permanent product. Just have to hope they consider the latest two a success, personally I would call selling out of what is essentially a very niche product within a couple of weeks to be a roaring success but maybe they will prefer to keep demand high?
I'll leave it a while and see if they release more of the Vetyver. If not I may buy their scented soap in the bowl thingy.
I recall reading about Fougere scent being released as you described. I would think people sending an email requesting or asking about the new LE scents might persuade them to introduce one or both as a regular item.
I absolutely love the Original and Fougere scents. When I can reduce my soap inventory, I too want one of the brain bowls.
I did a bit of research on the brain bowls and read that the scent diminishes quicker than in the sealed jar, just food for thought but also I can't verify it first hand.
What the heck is a brain bowl? Is it this? http://savonnerie-martin-de-candre.com/en/cadeaux-au-masculin/140-savon-a-raser-le-bol-en-bois.html
Yes that's it. Sorry, not sure where I picked up calling it a brain bowl.
It's the common name. The unsmoothed soap is lumpy and looks like a brain in an upside down skull cap.
I'm glad I worked it out... it was the only thing that remotely resembled brains so thought it must be that one funny
MDC samples arrived yesterday, will try one tonight... Not sure which one yet though.
It was interesting to smell them at last,
Original = Pungent French lavender, smells very clean and clinical... Perfect for the hotter months I imagine.
Fougere = Fresh fern, from a quick sniff this is my favourite... Reminds me of childhood camping holidays in France/Channel Islands.
Rose = This is proper rose, smells like the actual flower... In another league to the synthetically sweet Turkish delight esque Dusy Kabinett!
Vetyver = This is something very special, I can finally understand what the fuss is about but will withhold further comment until I've actually used it.
