  • Traditional aftershave splash

West Coast Shaving is pleased to carry this amazing line of shaving soaps, balms, and splashes with a wide variety of scents – right from the heartland of the USA. Vida Perez-Velazquez is the founder (and hands) of the handmade, small batch grooming requisites coming out of Oleo. Like many in the wet shaving world, Vida was inspired to try her hand at soap-making because of persistent skin issues that were only exacerbated by commercial soaps and moisturizers. In addition to a fabulous performance, her products have a plethora of scents!

This simple, traditional splash (and the matching shave soap) is a delightful addition to your shaving den. Just alcohol, water, fragrance, emulsifier, and menthol. Get your alcohol burn and your menthol cool for the perfect post-shave finish.

In honor of their Chicagoland location, this Oleo scent is named New City Back of the Yards. Leather/tanning has been a Chicago industry for decades. So it seems fitting to create this complex leather aroma. Inspired by Tom Ford's Tuscan Leather, New City has notes of raspberry, saffron, thyme, jasmine, frankincense, amber, woods, leather, and black suede.

Brilliant scent and performance

Wouldn't think of blending raspberry and leather, but the raspberry tones down the leather and makes it a wearable scent. Lovely menthol as well.

Absolutely beautiful scent

This one is special. It will drive women crazy. It's the perfect balance of sweet and masculine. Not cloying. Just perfect. The menthol hit is REALLY nice this time of year. I think I need to buy more of this. BTW, the soap is equally good.

New City :stars: Back of the Yards

This is a awesome scent and aftershave! Vida is turning out great great work at Oleo Soapworks, and this is a example of that, to say the least! She has really done such a phenomenal job at her blend on this. The raspberry is not subtle but not in your face, and the leather is just right as well. Together, though, the scent is making shave time magic! It has good longevity, but if worn properly, won't announce your presence before you enter the room. Wear this and smell great! Another one hit out of the park ! :baseball:���
