Ariana & Evans Goat's Milk and Lanolin Shaving Soap, Cacao Lussuria: Smells (and whips up) like a rich, velvety mousse.
If you are a chocolate-lover, you will lust for this "deliciously decadent" aroma. Notes of coffee, cocoa, tonka beans and bitter orange combine with vanilla, dried fruit, and wood notes for a complex, "good-enough-to-eat" fragrance. And the after-dinner theme continues with just a hint of cognac & tobacco to complete the experience.
Lather Bros. Shaving Soap, Take Out Night: Perhaps some dinner to chase your dessert?
This scent will evoke steaming food delivered in white cardboard containers. When the mid week slump requires a take out pick-me-up, you might enjoy this aroma with notes of ginger, chili, lemongrass, and a hint of fig. Get your chopsticks ready.
Le Pere Lucien Shaving Soap, Apricot: The mild sweetness of a European apricot candy.
This lovely apricot scent may just transport you to a childhood candy shop. The sweet aroma of fruit candy fragrance will enhance your shave.
Mickey Lee Soapworks Shaving Soap, The Drunken Goat: Like a sweet, chocolaty oatmeal cookie.
Reviewers rave about this soap: "Smelled so good, I put some in my mouth. Almost surprisingly, it tasted like soap" and "It reminds me of a Kahlua Mudslide, the rich scent of chocolate mixed with other scents is just breathtaking! Instead of shaving I wanted to eat this soap!" It is a deep, rich aroma often likened to a Stout infused cookie. It captures notes of chocolate, oats, molasses, and chestnut.
Oleo Soapworks Canard Shaving Soap, Seibo: Dominican chocolate is among the world's best and this soap captures that aroma perfectly.
Seibo lends its name to this aroma. . . and a cacao producing region in the Dominican Republic. For this gourmand scent, notes of rich cocoa are blended with sweet milk to give you a creamy, dreamy lather. Real cocoa powder is used in this grooming treat.
Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements, Organism 46B Shaving Soap: Like an orange tootsie pop.
Besides being a mysterious squid-like creature from a 25 million year old sub-glacial lake in Antarctica, Organism 46B is also the name of this fragrance. Doug found the strangeness of the weather in 2018 to be the inspiration for this unique gourmand scent. Notes of burnt sugar and bitter orange and tobacco combine for a chocolate "ghost" note, while brandy, benzoin resin, and ambergris give a warm vanilla depth.
Wickham Soap Co. 1912 Shaving Soap, Parma Violet: Another classic European candy inspired this soap, and its sherbet undertones are a welcome treat.
Parma Violets are a British confectionery that inspired this scent. A sweet floral combined with a dry wood base results in a strong, simple aroma. This is decidedly sweet -- but then so is candy. Top notes of rose, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley and hyacinth. Heart notes of heliotrope on a base of dry wood. One reviewer said, "Parma-violet scent is amazing, totally nailing the sweets I had as a child, strong floral with a base of sherbet that makes me long for a trip to a old fashioned sweet shop."
