West Coast Shaving staffer, Abe, opines on some of his favorite scents in this new sample pack. As a Southern California resident, Abe gravitates toward scents that pair well with warm weather. Check out his list below.
Oleo Soapworks Canard Shaving Soap, Treviso: What is better than cold Tiramisu and hot coffee? Nothing. Nothing is better than that.
Treviso is a luxurious, delectable scent of tiramisu. It's like Italy in your shaving den. Notes of chocolate, liqueur, and coffee define this gourmand scent. Grab some and make today delicious.
Central Texas Soaps Shaving Soap, Mr. Pepper (WCS Exclusive): "I must have drank me about 15 Dr. Peppers." - Forrest Gump.
Mr. Pepper pays tribute to the very popular beverage from Texas, Dr. Pepper. Opening the bottle is the same experience that you get when you pop the top off an ice cold Dr. Pepper. The notes of vanilla, caramel, cola, cherry, and juniper will remind you of the cold drink on a warm summer day. They even managed to convey the effervescence of carbonation when you inhale this aroma.
Dr. Jon's Natural Vegan Shaving Soap, Savannah Sunrise Vol. 2: "We live in a cynical world, a cynical world, and we work in a business of tough competitors. I love you. You. . . complete me." - Jerry Maguire.
I do declare, somewhere in the warm summer haze of a Georgia morning, the peaches are fixin' to burst with freshness and the honeysuckle in the lane reaches out to grab you. Dr. Jon's set out to capture that moment and lawd, have mercy, they done it! Ripe orange and peach intermingle with gardenia, jasmine, and honeysuckle.
Barrister and Mann Reserve Shaving Soap, Lavender: The best lavenders are not sweet or spicy, they are a perfect blend of the two. This is the perfect lavender.
But with everything that Barrister and Mann does well, their scents are still at the top of the list. They have resurrected some vintage scents in this Reserve line that will make you feel like a million bucks. It is based on a beautiful aftershave from Wales. Reserve Lavender takes the soothing, calming aroma of lavender and weaves it into this soap. Not sweet or cloying but natural and light. One reviewer said, "what I imagine French royalty would wear in the times of King Louis XIV."

Le Bleu is a lightly scented splash inspired by Bleu De Chanel cologne. We are delighted to be the exclusive carrier of this re-released aroma. Complex notes of floral and citrus with a woody base.
Wholly Kaw After Shave Splash, Fern Concerto Menthol: This symphony of scents is Wholly Kaw's Fern Concerto. It shaves like spring smells.
