  • Scented a smooth blend of neroli, patchouli, and bergamot and a warming blend of guaiac wood and vetiver
  • This aftershave splash has a matching shaving soap

Now every Talbot Shaving soap scent will be accompanied by a matching Maol Grooming aftershave. The quality of the splash Sean makes is incomparable, and the man behind the product makes it stand out even more! The aftershave is handmade with natural ingredients in Ontario, Canada. The small batch process ensures consistency and quality. It is almost a balm, but still a splash. A “Splash Balm” if you will. 

Description from the Vendor

Winter’s Refraction came to be in a very different way than scents I’ve created in the past. This was already an existing scent.

I was invited to make samples for the goodie bags handed out at the Northeast Meetup this past September. That scent was labeled “Voodoo”. At the meetup and for weeks after, I was asked if I’d consider making “Voodoo” available to everyone. Well, I really enjoyed the scent and wanted to do it, but didn’t want to call it “Voodoo” anymore. Another artisan had recently released something with a similar name, and I didn’t find the scent I had created was the right match for the existing name. So with a scent already created, I needed to build around it, which wasn’t something I’m used to doing.

I was stuck where to go with it for awhile until one of my closest friends told me simply, “It smells like a warm hug.” I knew I had my inspiration at that moment.

My mind went to a local walking trail, covered in snow, alongside a gently flowing river partially iced over. It’s a trail I’ve walked with my family many times. The sun in winter feels bright and is visually noticeable as it reflects off the snow and refracts through the ice. It’s beautiful to see when walking along the trails, and that “warm hug” that the sun offers on a crisp day combined with the icy refraction of light is what I decided to pinpoint as the new image for this scent.

So what does it smell like? You might notice a smooth blend of neroli, patchouli, and bergamot evolve to a darker, warming blend of subtle guaiac wood and vetiver. You might smell a warm hug, or you might smell something entirely different. But really, that’s my goal. Whatever your experience is, I hope it’s a pleasant one.

About Talbot's Shaving

Talbot Shaving began as a dream to combine soap maker, Chad's, love of the outdoors with his love of wet shaving, and fulfill a creative void in his life. The result is exceptional shaving products with unique scents that reflect some of Chad's favorite places. This soap making journey is (and will continue) to be a hobby for Chad and not a full time soap company. If you can get behind that, then welcome to Talbot.

Great feeling. I could smell the scent a little though the day. Would buy again. In my top five.
