Our new soaps and splashes are top shelf. When we set out to create our next generation shaving soaps and creams, we wanted phenomenal performance & value coupled with fantastic scents. With the help of some amazing artisans, we’ve nailed it. In fact, we loved our scents so much we wanted to offer them in a stronger profile to complete your groom. Introducing our eau de Parfums.
The scents of these grooming requisites are inspired by the “scent wheel” (developed by Michael Edwards over 30 years ago). We have crafted four of the most popular fragrance categories: Fougere, Cologne, Chypre, and Oriental fragrance, along with a fifth aroma that plays on the traditional barbershop. Check out our take on these classic perfume categories. A parfum is stronger in longevity because of a higher concentration of oils so you can expect it to go with you into your day.
In 1917, Francois Coty put this new category of perfume on the map with his aptly named, Chypre, perfume. This perfume classification takes notes often found in the eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus (Chypre is the French name for the island). The traditionally sharp scent usually boasts citrus top notes, middle notes of labdanum, on a base of earthy moss. Our West Coast Shaving take on this traditional aroma has notes of lemon and lime accenting the bergamot, which creates an effervescent opening. The supporting aldehydes & florals of the heart notes contrast with the earthy, resinous base of cardamom, oakmoss, vetiver, patchouli, and musk. This evokes the citrus-scented breezes just kissing your face as you sit on your tree-shaded, moss-lined balcony overlooking the Mediterranean.
