Martin de Candre Shaving Soap, Vetyver

2 reviews
Limited Edition Soap 
  • Traditional hot process soap
  • Vegan-based
  • Scented with vetiver

Martin de Candre (MdC on many wet shaving forums) is legendary in wet shaving circles. It has consistently ranked at the top of best-sellers lists, favorites rankings, and well-loved artisans blogs. They have helped to define the resurgence of traditional men's shaving in France and around the world. Since 1974, they have been crafting soap based on an almost lost art. This family-owned business uses the Marseilles process with almost exclusively vegetable oils.

This vegetable-based soap gets rave reviews. Loaded with olive and copra oils, it is hot saponified and dried for weeks to produce the long-lasting soap that is so beloved by millions.  It lathers quickly into a soft lather that stays on the face to provide protection and lubrication. And it lasts!

If you like your scents earthy and green, then check out this vetiver fragrance from MdC. They use only essential oil blends to create their scents. With vetiver, you get a masculine, natural aroma of green, earthy notes.

MdC Top Tier

I have been wet shaving for decades;and have tried and own over 300 soaps. This is the best vegan soap one can use. It is triple milled, and only requires a quick load to get a creamy shiny protective lather. It is thirsty for a vegan, so one should not be stingy with slow hydration as you build. It doesn't require blooming or a super wet brush to get rolling. Shave blog after shave blog attest to its top tier quality,as do I. Scents are a very personal matter - fragrance and post shave finish are the only aspects that are very slightly deficient. Packaging is top notch, as it is presented in a thick glass jar with a metal screw top lid, and a nice cardboard box the jar fits neartly inside. I typically keep mine in the boxes. My unscented version is 10 years old and I am barely 30% depleted - it is my most utilized product. Treat yourself - if you are particular with scents, try the unscented variety. And if you fire some reason aren't happy - I guarantee you can sell it immediately on the shave blogs classified ads.

Doesn't live up to the hype

Mediocre soap. Can find many at a third or fourth of the cost that are better. Hugely disappointed @ this price. Never again.
