Str8shave is a masculine, refine scent. It has upper notes of critus and bergamot, followed by middle notes of guiacwood, olive blossom, and anise, and lower notes of tonka beans, leather and a hint of tabacco. This is the smell to wear with your bow tie at a formal toxedo soirée.
Thick and dense lather will greet you in abundance. Extremely easy to lather up a cloud, and the denseness will help protect your skin by cushioning when applying the blade. The lather also contains a humectant such as glycerine to prevent the soap from drying your skin.
The shaving soap is in a travel tub with a very large opening to facilitate loading your shaving brush. The soap is a soft soap, sometimes referred to as a croap. While not hard it will last for many shaving sessions.
A shaving soap is perfect to minimize the exposure to preservatives. While not all products can be made without a preservative, shaving soap is our preferred form compared to shaving cream or other products containing water.
