Autumn Seasonal Scent

  • Artisan shaving soap in Milksteak base
  • Scented with a spicy oriental aroma
  • Also available in a matching aftershave & EdP

Scott Stewart is the man behind Declaration Grooming. He is continual churning out great scents, products, and collaborations. 

This artisan shaving soap is in his “milksteak” base, a tongue-in-cheek moniker for this tallow-based product. Over three years in the making, the result is a soft, easy to lather, slick lubricant with an amazing post-shave. Bison tallow, mango butter, avocado oil, shea butter, bentonite clay, yogurt, buttermilk, goat’s milk, and more produce a great shaving soap.

This Darkfall scent is an autumnal release. It is inspired by the rural south with its spicy, oriental notes. Agarwood, amber, and benzoin lay a deep, warming base for the cinnamon and clove top notes. The addition of birch tar gives it a smokiness that might bring to mind the burning leaves of a crisp Georgia afternoon. 

Size: 4oz.

Excellent soap!!

I have shaved with products from all over the world and this is the finest shave soap that I have found. The protection, lubrication and scent is top notch and I highly recommend this product looking to upgrade their shaving experience. Great stuff!

The best

One of the best shaving creams I've used. Very unique scent that makes you want to keep using it. Lathers very nicely and leaves a nice smooth feeling after, very comparable to barrister and mann.

I dig it!

I face lather and my badger brush loads in about 15 or 20 seconds. The soaps density is perfect for this as it is not rock hard but a medium soft soap. I’ve used it 10 times so far and it looks like it will last a long time. The slickness, both while shaving and post shave use is incredible. I straight razor shave most the time but my shave was equally wonderful with a filarmonica straight or a karve safety razor with an “e” plate. Highly recommended.

A new favorite

I've been on a kick to try some of the newer artisan soaps of late, and this one has quickly climbed to the top of my list of favorites. Lather is plentiful, slick and very creamy. I wasn't sure I'd like the scent as I normally avoid anything with smoky notes.However in use the smokiness takes a back seat to the other scents for a terrific olfactory experience throughout the shave. The after shave feel is fantastic as well. This new base is a winner!
