I saw lifebuoy soap on one of the sites. My grandfather used to use that.

Can you remember what he smelt like at the start of the day? Won't be much different. Very clean smell in an non-antiseptic antiseptic kinda way - and by that I mean it doesn't smell like an antiseptic cleaner but that clean smell that you get when something is REALLY clean.

Think the Waltons after one of John Boy's brothers has been in the woods too long and been in the mud and has to get cleaned up for supper!! Think a scene like that and the smells that would evoke in you and then you are pretty close!!

Too many restaurants, not enough time...

When Google the soap, this thread comes up, not much available about it. I wonder if that is the same soap my mother used to used for lundry back in the Soviet days.

You are what you eat.
