New Release: Abbate y La Mantia

Abbate y La Mantia is an Italian-based, family run business located in the beautiful Maremma countryside near the knee of Italy’s tall boot. This Tuscany region and these artisans are producing exceptional saffron. They are not simple adding saffron to scent their product, rather their actual recipe is based in saffron – saponified saffron, if you will. You get all the benefits of saffron in every product.

Saffron has been used for centuries in dyes and cooking, figures prominently in Greek mythology and ancient writings, and as recently as the 19th century was considered a stimulant for libido and a cure for infertility. But all whimsy aside, it IS known for its carotenoids (fights free radicals to slow cellular ageing) and vitamins B1 & B2 (beneficial for the metabolic and immune systems).

Check out these awesome soaps and matching aftershaves in 9 fabulous scents.

ButteroThis new scent takes the addicting aroma of Italian leather and puts it in an shaving product. This is a fresh scent without mint or menthol, just the warm, inviting aroma of leather.

Crumiro - This Crumiro scent is a gourmand delight. If you’ve ever wandered the streets of Casale Monferrato near Turin, Italy, then you’ve likely enjoyed a traditional biscuit called Krumiro. It was said that the pastry chef was replicating the shape of the mustache of Vittorio Emanuele II, King of Italy. Treat yourself royally with this scent.

Don Jose - With the added menthol, this is the perfect summer time splash. But the freshness and tropical nature of the banana and coconut aromas makes it great year-round, especially when you are looking for a tropical contact high. Enjoy the wonderful freshness of this fragrance.

IsaccoThe aromatic notes of this fragrance are green apple (mela verde) and black fig (fico nero). The apple (noted for treachery) and the fig (noted for virility) combine in this fruity aroma. Isaac Newton might have found this an appropriate use for the offending fruit.

Krokos - This is Abbate y La Mantia's masterpiece. Since saffron plays such a vital role in the formation of the products, it seems appropriate to have a saffron-scented splash as well. This one is scented with the spicy fragrance of the intense vibrant spice.

Matteo - Inspired by the gifts of the Magi to the Christ child, this aroma is redolent with the rich spiciness of incense and the oil of myrrh. Fill your shaving den and your day with this gift of peace on earth.

Vegano - This Vegano aroma is for those who love herbaceous fragrances. This fresh, green scent may seem preposterous, but it is revolutionary as well. It was inspired by a dream that soap maker Fulco Abbate had and introduced to the public. Notes of carrot and lettuce may raise eyebrows, but it is worth a look.
