Hypermodern meets vintage. Old meets new. Retro meets future. If you are fascinated by this movement of literature and lifestyle called Steampunk, then you must check out this specially commissioned shaving soap from Tabula Rasa. Working with the Shaving Nook forum, German soapmaker & perfumer, Eric Kormann,developed this unique scent for unique soaps.
Tabula Rasa (like Steampunk itself) has been cultivating a cult-like following. Their creams/soaps seem to defy classification. Not quite cream, not quite soap, they have been called "hard" by cream enthusiasts and "soft" by soap experts. Regardless, these grooming essentials create an amazing lather to rival the best. Mango butter and argan oil are combined to give exceptional moisturizing, while a Swiss-made proprietary ingredient makes it great for those with sensitive skin. And the aftershave effect is. . . wait for it. . . legendary. No need for an aftershave splash or balm. The moisturizing effects of this last and last to give you soft, supple, post-shave skin.
But the scent is where the adventure begins. Atlas cedarwood provides a strong note that reminds one of a Victorian wood-panelled library full of leather bound Jules Vernes and H.G. Wells novels. But it doesn't overpower. There is a velvety violet, floral note that keeps it from being too "old". Elemi, lime, and musk are also present. There is nothing else quite like it.
If you have a thirst for adventure, a respect for the past, and a love for steam-powered, Victorian-inspired, futuristic technology (ok, that's optional), then grab this premium soap from Tabula Rasa.
