Phoenix and Beau Shaving Soap, Imperial Rum
- Traditional, lathering shaving soap
- Scented with lime, spice, and bay
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.
This is a complex and layered take on bay rum. It still boasts some spicy bay, but it enhanced by a depth of its own. Top notes of lime and sweet orange give it a citrus kick before moving into the warmth of West India bay with hints of vanilla and balsamic as well as spicy hits of cinnamon, pepper, and juniper. It all settles on a base of ylang-ylang and benzoin for a scent for any season.
