    New Release: Eufros Shaving Soap & Aftershave

    This handmade, small batch, lathering monster is the creation of Manuel Garcia, aka JabonMan. With no storefront and no website, this Spanish artisan has remained on the fringes of mainstream wet shaving, but always with a subtle presence in chatrooms, reviews, and SOTD (shave of the day) posts.  Perhaps his obscurity added to his mystic! West Coast Shaving is pleased to be bringing his products to the US market as the first and only US retailer.

    Fougères in the Air

    Fougère (French word for “fern”) is a perfume classification for a family of scents that traces its origin back to 1882 when Houbigant first released this Eau de Parfum.
