I just love Yardley soaps. I ESPECIALLY love the Lavender variety. I have lavender everything (Bronners, shampoo and conditioner, and deodorant) and I guess you could say I have come to know that a citrus-y lavender is my favorite. This is it. I wish they made this in perfume :(

All of the Yardley soaps are fragrant and luxurious, albeit it a bit drying ( use a good creamy lotion afterwards). I love to keep them on the bathroom counter and allow them to scent my restroom area. English lavender is perfect for night time showers or baths because the laverender scent really relaxes you. I buy several whenever I visit the DollarTree.

Love this one! What a great fresh, herbal scent. At our local fair in the summer there used to be a lady who sold fresh lavender by bulk, in sachets, etc. My Mom and I would have a field day buying up this stuff and making our own sachets for our own drawers or gifts. I could roll in it! LOL! It's a really nice little soap with a great scent. Yum! *sigh*

I got this soap as a two-pack at Big Lots for $1.00. I liked the lavender scent. The soap comes as a HUGE bar! I think one bar lasted me a little over a month. It is a little drying but nothing some lotion can't fix.

I got this soap for 60 cents. It smells sooo good. Just like lavender. It's so relaxing to use in the bath or shower. BUT it kind of leaves a waxy residue so idk I would just buy dove or something instead. Maybe use this as a hand soap not a body soap...!

I love the smell of lavender and this soap has a very nice lavender scent. Very much there but not overwhelming. I use it in the shower and find it's great as an overall body soap though I wouldn't use anything perfumed on my face. I was amazed to find this in a dollar store and cheap to buy. Definitely would buy it again. In fact I bought 8 bars yesterday because it's so popular it's often sold out. This isn't the real English Yardley soap though. It says clearly on the box that it is made in the U.S. and I'll bet the formula is different. That's true with Pear's soap too which is now made in India if you can believe it.

This is awful!! I live lavender so I thought I'd give it try. It leaves some kind of weird scum on your skin. I ended up getting right back in the shower to wash with something else. Yuck yuck yuck. Smells nice though.

I adore Yardley's English Lavender soap! It was the first scented soap I ever got. It never irritates my skin, cleans beautifully, and I adore the scent.
I'd like to add a small proviso: in my early 30's my nose underwent a wierd short-circuit and the scent of lavender became a B.O. smell to me. One of the few lavender products that went "off" was Yardleys EL. It isn't a matter of natural vs. synthetic, either, as I've had same problem or lack of problem indiscriminately.
This is a clean lavender to my nose, soapy, coolingly refreshing in summer, snuggly in winter. The soap lathers well, lasts forever, and is astoundingly inexpensive. They do not stint on fragrance in the soaps and opening a drawer filled with these bars is a pleasure.
EDIT: smelled recent version from dollar store and doesn't smell like the YEL I remember. I'll track down another bar for comparison. While different to my memory, it was still pretty.

This is my fiance's favorite. It's the only soap he will use, so I associate it with a masculine scent. A bar seems to last him forever, and it doesn't dry his skin out. I store the bars in his drawers and closets, and it leaves his clothes smelling wonderful.

I was in Dollar Tree and happened upon this soap. I thought it would be good to wash my face at night before bed. I love it! The smell is soothing and relaxing which is great for bedtime. It doesn't leave a filmy residue, and it rinses away very well. Will keep purchasing.

One of my all time favorites. I've used it for too many years to remember! Rich lather and scent, fine for hands, body, guests, making your drawers smell wonderful and much more.

It's all about whether the "Made in England" Yardley smells better than the Yardley English Lavender bar soap made in the U.S. Both in fact, are honest-to-goodness fresh smells, each smelling strongly of real Lavender. The English soaps are flatter; the ones made here are rounded on top.
Both lather up well and (unlike Dove soap), do NOT end up a round piece of mush when it gets wet. They rinse cleanly away and are not too drying.
There's a matching liquid hand soap for the powder room, both in regular and anti-bacterial formulations. This is a quality everyday soap
that can be found everywhere. Sometimes I see them at the dollar store in packs of three. Unbeatable value!

This bar soap is creamy, lathers well, and smells pretty. It is somewhat drying to the skin, but I use it in the guest bath and it stands up very well (i.e. doesn't disintegrate or melt down in water).

I love Yardley's English Lavender [bar] Soap. It's a mediocre bar soap--not very moisturizing and can actually dry out your skin if you're in the mood for a lot of lather in the winter. However, being a lavender lover, I find that the scent in this soap is really exceptional. The scent is on the rounder, muskier side--not lemony or citrusy like some lavender varieties originating in more southern areas like Spain or France. I purchase a bunch of these bar soaps and put them around my clothes in the closet. Doing so gives my garments a very delicately, soft lavender scent.
The bars seem to stay pungent for about 6 months - 1 year. After that, I relegate them to the bathroom to be used as a hand soap. They don't get mushy as easily either. Highly recommended.

Love the smell, but hate the product. It's made from sodium tallowate, which is dead animals. :( Very drying, also.

I absolutely love the smell of this soap! Like someone posted below, it is a true lavender scent. This soap lathers nicely, doesn't get mushy, and rinses clean. I love using this soap before bed, a nice relaxing scent. Ahhh. Will continue to purchase.

I've used this soap forever. It's one of my favorites. It has a very true lavender scent, not like many other so-called lavender soaps and body washes on drugstore shelves now, few of which smell anything at all like lavender. I especially like using this soap in a cool shower at the end of a long hot summer day. Very refreshing and clean and herbal and lavendery. I hope they never stop making it. A nice soap before bedtime, too.

This is a great smelling liquid body wash/soap. The lavendar scent is not overwhelming, but lingers on the body after rinsing. Texture is thick and easy to lather. Very nice product, especially for the price!

Oh, how I love this product. My mother used it on me all the time when I was young. It never irritates and the fragrance is so subtle and pleasing. I'd buy again, if only I knew where.

Wonderful soap. Perfectly scented. I love it!
