Declaration Grooming is the sweat and toil of Scott & Saradawn Stewart. Formerly L&L Grooming and Declaration Brushworks, the new moniker doesn't change the years of hard work and dedication these artisans have put into developing their business. From recipe formulation, web design, product crafting, marketing, and the myriad others task, they take their job seriously. From their homebase in Morenci, Michigan, this couple is turning out amazing grooming products.
This premium shaving soap (or croap, very soft soap) is loaded with amazing, hydrating, protective ingredients. It has a bison tallow base and lanolin for slickness and glide. Then butters, oils, and bentonite clay whip up the perfect, moisturizing lather that leaves a note-worthy post shave feel. Reviewer Will said, "This is an excellent soap. Since I picked it up it has become my favorite. The scent is perfectly understated and classic. Bowl lather develops over about 45 seconds. The scent appears with lather development which I think is really cool. Sniffing the puck doesn’t do it justice."
This scent of “leather & spices” (Cuir Et Epices) is exclusive to the new bison tallow soap base. This unique blend of leather, tobacco flower, cedar, anise, oakmoss, and patchouli seems to defy description. One tester said, “This is what I imagine John Wayne's kitchen smelling like - soft leather, vaguely appley, with a twist of some kind of baking spice.” That said this isn’t a gourmand scent. Stick with the John Wayne image, not Julia Child.
