Man Soap from Man Hands is a new range of soaps that has been specially created for men and comes in a range of highly unusual scents. And yes, fresh-cut grass fragrance is also available.

Launched at the end of last year, the range of soaps is being marketed for its novelty value, supposedly to appeal to the more manly olfactory perceptions.

Each bar is 3oz and includes ingredients such as coconut oil, palm oil, glycerine, propylene glycol and sorbitol, as well as the range of product-specific fragrances and colors. Each is being sold in the US for $6.95.
