Phoenix and Beau Shaving Soap, Iceni
- Traditional, lathering shaving soap
- Scented with citrus, musk, and amber
Phoenix & Beau is the brainchild and handcraft of Kerry Burrow and his wife, Sarah. Starting in 2015, Kerry began the months long process of creating a shaving soap that could adequately handle his sensitive skin. Through much trial & error, vetting by shaving aficionados on The Shaving Room (TSR) online fraternity, and many, many batches of soap, the Burrows felt that had something worthy to offer the wet shaving world. Now you can own this small-batch, British-designed product with great scents.
Their tallow-based soap is hitting all the right marks for wet shavers. Loaded with skin-nourishing goodies like safflower, shea butter, castor oil, lanolin, and more it whips up a moisturizing protective lather. It is a “thirsty beast” according to the creator, so don’t be afraid of water.
Iceni is inspired by the regional ancestry around Burrow's home in Hitchin, England -- the Iceni tribe and their queen, Boudicca. Celtic knotwork, a golden torc, and 3 hares represent elements of this warrior queen and their goddess Andrasta. Notes of mandarin and bergamot open this accord. Then a heart of lavender, myrrh, and a touch of nutmeg add power to the scent. It ends with a base of musk, amber, sandalwood, and a kiss of vetiver & patchouli.
