I like the pine tar smell, like a campfire, but it doesn’t last at all. Wife couldn’t smell it on me and I was only out of the shower for a few minutes. Not that it was bad but it’s kind of expensive so probably won’t get another after this one.

The Japanese towel thing is pretty kick ass, can scrub the shit out of your back so easy.

Yeah, I've never noticed the smell sticking around longer than a few minutes. Nor has anyone at work remarked about it, although I don't ever really work side-by-side with someone where they'd be able to notice it either. On top of that, half the office wears too much perfume or cologne, to the point where it sometimes gives me a headache, so even if I did smell the chances of it overpowering theirs is slim.

Now that you mention it, I've noticed my forearms, where they rest on my desk during typing, have kind of gotten some little bumps on them. I assumed it was just some random thing, but they never existed before the pine tar either. And I tend to rub the soap over those areas even more now, due to thinking they need better cleaning. Maybe I'm making it worse. I'll try skipping those areas with pine tar (and just rub them with a clean washcloth) for awhile and see if it makes a difference. I haven't noticed anything anywhere else, and these don't itch or anything, they feel more like little pimples, so maybe since my forearms rest on the desk much of the day it is just some slight irritation that I can fix easily.

a job i worked at during the 90s had a "meeting" table, at some point each day i was sitting at it and after a while i started breaking out on the parts of my arms that rested on it. other people started complaining about the same thing. turns out the cleaning crew was using some harsh fucking chemical that was intended for cleaning floors on this same table. they stopped and everything was fine. maybe same deal with you? everyone is different. i cant use Gold Bond powder because it gives me a rash.

Could be, I'll check it out. They would have had to change what they are doing recently though, as I've been at this same desk for years. Never know though.

The 3 stages of reading this thread:

Why are a bunch of middle aged nerds going on for pages about soap?

Why did I just order some pine tar soap?

Why have I not been using this stuff for years?

it really does, i'm pretty sure you're up money ordering the 6 pack on amazon for 25 bucks vs some 10 dollar cosco pack of lever2000 that fucking fades to styrofoamy nothing after like 3 uses, makes you smell like a cuckfag and probably gives you Alzheimers

I'm using the final bar of the 6 piece variety pack of Grandpa's. It's Oatmeal. It has actual grains of oats in it, so there's some thickness. It's a decent, none have come close to the Pinetar & Charcoal types. They were awesome. As soon as this bar is gone, I'm moving onto the mint Dr. Whatever's oily soap. Let's see how that goes.

I've loved the pine tar but getting the variety pack next time. Since I got the 6 pack of pine tar, that's going to take a while. The scent does not last though. Short term benefit.

how intense do you need the scent and how long do you need it to last? after 8 hours i can still smell it on my arms when i put my nose to it. as long as its still generating the pine tar soap smell and not a dirty man smell, thats good enough for me. i dont need to stink like a two dollar whore.

Maybe my nose just isn't sensitive enough but I rarely smell it past getting ready for my day or at most about a half hour. I want to at least smell like a $5 whore if I'm going to make the effort to clean up.

Same here. It's possible I'm just not smelling it because I'm used to it, but I work with at least one woman that would comment if she smelled something on me. I was sorta hoping it would stick around longer, but at least I'm not like the huge asshole guy I work with that also drenches himself in cologne, so there's that.

We have one of those guys at work. There are occasionally days where I can taste the goddamn cologne in the air within seconds of him opening the door to the office.

i think you're just use to it. next time you wash up with the soap. wait a few hours and ask a friend/family to sniff you and see if they smell anything. dont ask a coworker. cuz i dont want anyone here getting fired for being a creeper.
