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.
While many of us today think of cologne as a fragrance for men, it is actually a category of scent from the Cologne region of Germany. Launched in 1709 by an Italian perfumer Farina, it sought to replicate the aroma of an Italian spring morning of “mountain daffodils and orange blossoms after the rain.” Farina named his new fragrance after his new hometown in Germany. Our West Coast Shaving aroma has a few traditional citrus aromas in the top notes, but they are not the centerpiece. The rich, earthy, mossy notes (rosemary, petitgrain, lavender, rose, geranium, oakmoss, vetiver, & musk) are where this aroma really shines. Instead of an emphasis on citrus and floral, the depth of this scent is on the moss and cashmere-like musk. This sophisticated scent will have you ready for a night on the town with your tailored suit and gin in tonic in hand.
