  • Lusso base
  • Notes of Lemon, Bergamot, Birch Tar, Acacia, Cistus labdanum, Malt, Vanilla, and oakmoss.

This Northern California artisan, Mohammad, started Grooming Dept in 2017. With formulations that include duck fat, donkey milk, and lamb & beef tallow, as well as a vegan base, he is turning heads. Check out some of his offerings and phenomenal scents.

This classic Italian type soap base, Lusso, is tallow-based with lots of cupuacu butter and coconut oil. It has a particularly high level of cushion to protect your sensitive skin. It also has jersey cow's milk from St. Benoit Creamery. It is noticeably denser than other soap bases and can handle a lot of water. Interestingly, it has the fewest ingredients of all his soap bases but boy does it deliver.

Molten delivers a complex, masculine scent that is as smoking hot as lava and as rich as lava cake. All the right notes of bright citrus, pungent tar, warm vanilla, and woody oakmoss bring you an aroma that is simply irresistible. Notes of lemon and bergamot blend with birch tar, acacia, labdanum on a rich base of malt, vanilla, and oakmoss. 

Size: 4oz

Scent is off

So I just wanted to write about this soap, I finally got around to using it and the scent is worse when you first open the jar than when you actually use it on your face for a few days. The scent is pretty mild. I also don't like the scent much at all, however I'm still able to shave with it because it is a mild scent. The soap however performs extremely well. With Grooming Dept however, scents are hit or miss and it's hard to get a hold of it. I've got 5 other soaps from them waiting to be used, I started with this one because I disliked the scent the most when I opened the Jar. 5 Starts because I'm only rating it based on performance.
