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.

Martin de Candre Shaving Soap, Vetyver.

This is my new favorite. The price made my eyes water, but the product is great. Good lather, wonderful light vetiver scent, product appears to be very long lasting. If it actually does last as long as I expect from my experience so far, I will buy it again.

“You get what you pay for.”

I have been using creams for many years, mainly for the convenience. I decided to give soaps a try and chose three soaps from Martin de Candre. They lather easily and I appreciate the slickness. Don’t let the price put you off, quality products cost more.

Simply the Best

I have been using MdC shaving soap for about 10 years, and currently have three scents in daily rotation. Not only does MdC soap prevent irritation but, while it’s expensive, it lasts for ever!

If you could only have one....

...this would be an excellent choice. It is pricey, but in the long run I think it is probably cheaper per shave than any other soap. It takes so little to get a fantastic cloud of lather, that one full tub will last years and years. The scent is sublime, fresh, earthy, ethereal. I love it, and that said scent is hugely personal, and I prefer scents that aren't super sweet or perfumey. This one is clean, light, and natural. The glide, slickness, and cushion of the later is absolutely top notch. Great skin conditioning too. A total winner.
