  • Lathering Shaving Soap
  • With Duck Fat base
  • Barbershop scent inspired by Replica from Maison Margiela

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 No. 11 scent is inspired by a line of fragrances dubbed "Replica" which seek to recreate moments, locations, & occasions that draw out memories. So this scent is subtitled "At the Barber" as it weaves its nostalgic web around you. Notes of basil, black pepper, lavender, rosemary, tonka bean, and white musk evoke the stripped pole and leather chairs of a Main Street barber.

Size: 4oz

Made in the USA

Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Water, Kokum Butter, Potassium Hydroxide, Palm Kernel Oil, Duck Fat, Sodium Hydroxide, Castor Oil, Glycerin, Jojoba Oil & Sodium Lactate

My wife said to me, "you smell delicious!"

I ordered this because I love barbershop scents, there are a lot of brands to choose from and a lot of them smell really amazing, but this stuff, this stuff is in a league of it's own. It smells, well in my wife's words, delicious! I have to agree with her, it's a very manly and sexy scent. The shave of course was impeccable as always with Oleo and their Canard base. If you want a phenomenal shave, post shave feel, and scent, buy this soap! In my opinion: Scent Strength: 7 Loading: 10 Cushion: 7.5 Slickness: 10 Overall Lather Quality: 9.5 Post Shave Feel: 10 Oleo is my favorite soap so I highly recommend it!

Great performance soap

Like WCS Oleo soaps (branded WCS and made by Oleo), this one really is a great performer. The smell is a little more subdued than other Oleo soaps, but still smells great. A little on the thirsty side, it produces a thick, slick lather. Rinsing off, there still is a moisurizing feeling on the face as some soaps can make the face feel dry after a shave (not so with this soap). I recommend giving this a try.
