  • Second Generation shaving soap
  • Duck fat base
  • Scented with a barbershop aroma with cologne-like notes.

We're at it again! Testing, reviewing, experimenting to bring you an exceptional shaving soap. And now we've combined our new Gatsby v2 aroma in our equally as well-loved duck fat base. Try out this crazy awesome soap!

This shaving soap has a duck fat base, and boy, does it deliver. Loaded with skin nourishing kokum butter, palm oil, castor oil, jojoba oil, this soap is slick (and we mean slick!) and protective. The blade will glide over your skin. The duck fat also gives it a dense, rich lather. It is a thirsty soap, so don't be afraid of a little water. The nourishing feeling this soap leaves on your face after your shave is unbelievable.

If you love wet shaving for all its traditional, nostalgic beauty, then we think you will love our take on a barbershop aroma with some complex cologne notes. #1 Gatsby is an elegant, masculine scent that might remind you of dressing to the nines, speakeasies, and the clink of ice on crystal. This 1920s inspired scent is from the days when men were dapper, clean-shaven, and well-groomed. Notes of oakmoss, cardamom, bergamot, lavender, cedarwood, amber, coumarin, and vetiver. For this v2 reformulation, we've added Sicilian orange for a more prominent citrus note.

We think this evolution of Gatsby is great, and we enjoy coming up with different interpretations of it. Is v2 Gatsby's last chapter? Only time will tell. Cheers!

Size: 5oz.

Performance of the soap is wonderful

Perfect peformance wise. Very slick and nice scent that is subtle enough that you can wear any aftershave without clashing.

As for a black man this really works. Smooth, soft my bread and wonderful shave. Made two passes and a pickup. Easy to start up a great lather.
