When I started wet shaving, I quickly fell in love with the hobby. Unfortunately, I was completely overwhelmed with all the different soaps and scents that were out there. I recognized common scents like orange, vanilla, and pine, but I had no idea what stuff like bergamot, vetiver, and ambergris were, let alone what they smelled like. This left me pouring over hundreds of scent descriptions trying to find one that sounds like something I might like, and ultimately blind buying soaps.

After seeing a slew of "Recommend me a soap" posts (some of which may have been mine) in the various wet shaving subreddits, it was obvious that I wasn't the only one having problems deciphering everything. Even when people did get responses to their recommendation request, the recommendations were typically along the lines of "Soap X, Y, and Z are popular, give those a try." While better than nothing, this wasn't good enough.

Knowing there had to be a better way, I created Try That Soap to give you unbiased, personalized recommendations based on the soaps and scents that you like, without the need to know the intricacies of the scents and notes that make up these products. Even if you're an experienced wet shaver and know your scents in and out, Try That Soap is still a great tool to keep track of everything you've tried and learning about soaps that you may have overlooked.

I want Try That Soap to be as useful to the wet shaving community as I think it is, so if you have suggestions, don't hesitate to get in touch via Twitter, Instagram, or the contact form.

Happy shaving!
