Cognac and Cuban Cigars: An Afternoon game of poker sitting around smoking cigars and drinking a fine aged cognac. Definitive masculine smell, gentlemen's club. Cedarwood, fresh leather, zesty lemon, cognac and spicy tobacco. The scent is rich and heady, presenting a heavenly aromatic combination of a sweeter cognac and a Havana cigar aging room.
The cigar smell is like being the first person in the day to step into an aging room or cracking open a new box or a "Tupperdor" of aging Cuban cigars. The scent on this Cognac and Cuban cigar Shaving Soap is very unique and intoxicating. The cigar smokiness is in there, but it is subtle and doesn't overpower or dominate.
