Of course, Bay rum is a favorite at our house. We don't tend to like cologne type scents though. Others DH (and I... since I'm the one who buys the soaps) like are:
Cinnamon, Sandalwood and Sandalwood Vanilla, Patchouli and OMH. Also some of the fruity scents do well like lime, lemon and orange.
Bethany's Cedar Saffron is also a good men's scent. I have a couple bars left.
You know, one scent that I've read is very popular for men is Green Irish Tweed. So I purchased some. Not my favorite out of the bottle, but I'm very curious about how it would soap though.
you probably saw mine on the RA rant,
This is my 'Iron Man' I sell it in lotion and soap with black and blue clays. Hands down my best seller. Both men and women buy it like crazy
This is my working Man with corn meal for scrubby, aslo sells well in lotion
Mine is Draakar, hands down and I just went back to Save-on-scents, and when I opened it was like...there you are nice to smell you back. I layer it with dark pinkish micas, very pretty and it's wonderful. It's my Morning Wood soap and lotion. Vicki
