Angora Soaps- Olympos Shaving Soap

Angora Soaps- Olympos Shaving Soap

Regular price $22.00 Sale price $18.00


This soap packs a beautiful scent that is inspired by the Mediterranean coast in Turkey. The aromas along the coast are incredible, rich with flowers and citrus. Angora Soaps  worked to find a good fragrance that would capture that, and I think they have it with Olympos.

Named after the city of ancient Lycia on the Turkish Mediterranean coast, Olympos has top notes of Neroli, Lemon, citrus, middle notes of white flowers, jasmine, and base note of cedar, amber, and musk.

About Angora Soaps

The owner of Angora Soaps, Pete, discovered wet shaving during his time in the Air Force. Using a disposable razor was a terrible experience that always left his face irritated and torn up and there was no way around it in the military.  

While he was stationed overseas in Turkey, Pete had the pleasure of experiencing his first barber straight shave using traditional methods. Turks are well known for their mastery of a straight razor and it surprised him how a single edge old fashion blade and some Arko shaving soap could be more enjoyable. This fascinated Pete and led him to wet shave online forums and YouTube videos.  

After 10 years of wet shaving, Pete decided he wanted to try his hand at soap making and found a new passion of formulating his line of soaps. 

Working from home and a global pandemic accelerated his dream of a small business to share his creations. Pete launched Angora Soaps, a tribute to his Turkish shaving roots (and his Turkish Angora Cat). Angora wool is some of the softest and fluffiest in the world and their shaving soaps embody this property in their lather.
