In this sample pack, West Coast Shaving Staffer, Kevin, is dishing on his favorite scents. And Kevin is not one to compromise on quality. As he says,"here are a couple of my favorite scents and shaving soaps that help me change what I use, but not change the result I want."
Catie's Bubbles Shaving Soap, A Midnight Dreary. Approved by my wife, it is a scent that well suits both men and women. Thus giving us a delight to the eye and a comfort to the soul.
"Once upon a midnight dreary. . . " quoth the wet shaver, "EVERmore". Once you use this scent, you are likely to lather it again and again. A complex aroma (as complex as the poet who inspired it) has notes of orchid, lotus, spices, black currant, black truffle, jasmine, dark chocolate, patchouli, sandalwood, vetiver, amber, and vanilla.
Ariana & Evans Shaving Soap, Spartacus. Compliment King. Spartacus is a modern fragrance masterpiece. It lasts all day and projects very well without being overpowering.
With a name like Spartacus, you can imagine that this aroma is powerful, masculine, and strong -- you wouldn't be wrong. Notes of bergamot, black currant, apple, pineapple, pinkberries, birch, patchouli, jasmine, musk, oakmoss, ambergris, and vanilla combine for a complex, classic aroma. If you like Creed's Aventus, then you will love this take on it.
Barrister and Mann Tallow Shaving Soap, Lavanille. Me time. Lavanille is a very complex creation with a unique pandora scent. Thus making a scent unrivaled for better than 50 years. Definitely something you can consider a guilty pleasure.
Barrister and Mann are passionate about creating fragrances that keep you coming back. And a scent with a story is so much more intriguing. Lavanille is a perfume fairy tale. Once upon a time the House of DeLaire created a magnificent perfume base for a legendary perfume firm. "Mousse de Saxe" (Saxon Moss) used a new aromatic chemical that was bitter, dark, leathery, and potent. It became the base of many great masterpieces until it was lost to the mists of time. Then came the day that B&M had the good fortune to obtain a sample of the original. In a painstaking process, they recreated this famous base by smell alone. Now, they use that base in a scent of their own making, Lavanille.
Oleo Soapworks Shaving Soap, Excursion. Casual Sophistication. This fragrance is the ultimate night time, seductive, date night fragrance. Subtle and a very good projection of spicy and sweet. Definitely should be a staple in every man's arsenal.
This masculine aroma takes inspiration from La Nuit de l'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent. It is a complex, spicy fragrance kept from being too dark by the freshness of bergamot, lavender, and cedar even with the explosive spicy cardamom. The coumarin and vetiver in the base provides an elegant close.
WCS Duck Fat Shaving Soap, Cologne. A man's natural cologne. The scents are really brought out when mixed with lighter notes like citrus and moss. The bright freshness fades away to unearth an exotic note that hits the nose in just the right way. This portrays a masculine, outdoorsy fragrance.
This sophisticated scent will have you ready for a night on the town with your tailored suit and gin in tonic in hand.
Lather Bros. Shaving Soap, Calle Ocho. Dale. From time to time you have to switch things up from a negative to a positive.
Calle Ocho (8th Street) is the heart of Miami's Little Haven. This thorough-fare is lined with shops and parks where you can enjoy anything from coffee to cigars to dominoes as you stroll along to a Latin beat. The experience is encapsulated in this scent from Lather Bros. Notes of guava, tobacco, and papaya fill your senses.
Size: 1/2 tbsp of each cream (enough for approximately 4 shaves)
