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!
But the performance is top-notch. The Canard base shaving soap is a duck fat grooming requisite. And boy, does it deliver. Loaded with skin nourishing kokum butter, palm oil, castor oil, jojoba oil (hence the name Oleo - oil), this soap is slick and protective. The duck fat too gives it a dense, rich lather. It is a thirsty soap, so don't be afraid of a little water. This hot process soap is poured into a low profile, wide mouth container for easy brush loading.
This aroma was inspired by Creed's Virgin Island Water and as such evokes a tropical vibe. Vida named her scent Bonaire ("good air" and the name of a Caribbean island). Imagine the tropical breezes and exotic scents carried on the trade winds in the days of Sir Francis Drake. Notes of bergamot, lime, mandarin, coconut toddy, copra, jasmine, hibiscus, ylang ylang, ginger, tonkin musk, white rum, sugar cane.

Size: 4oz.

Unexpected Surprise

I found the soap to be very firm or hard when touched in the container. My first shave using a 24mm badger brush face lathering was good. Mild scent with slickness. My second shave using the same brush but using a bowl was disappointing that it produced a thin layer of lather and took a lot of brushing to produce a fair amount of lather. On my last pass, I went back to the original puck for thicker lather. The overall performance was acceptable but not what I expected.

Slick & Thick

I like the canard based soaps! My only reason to not provide the 5 star rating is the scent. I have now purchased 2 soap products and the scents are barely noticeable. I was expecting a stronger scent. The slickness is very good and you get a great shave. A little on the expensive side for shave soap but that seems to be the trend these days.
