Bartigan and Stark Fine Shaving Soap "Campione"
Campione has a mid-level scent intensity with a fairly linear progression from top to bottom notes. This fragrance is currently available in their fine shaving soap and alcohol-free aftershave splash, and is suitable for any day and any weather, and especially appropriate for cold climate and special occasions.
Bartigan and Stark set out to create a creamier tobacco scent with supporting notes of wood, dried fruit, and citrus.
Top: bergamot, clementine, dried fruit
Middle: tobacco, frankincense, jasmine, coconut, almond, hay
Base: amber, vanilla, musk, cognac, sandalwood
The summer of 2019 was the first time Glenn experienced Tabacco Toscano by Santa Maria Novella. His daughter and son-in-law returned from their Italian honeymoon bearing gifts from that historic monastery-turned-perfume-house. Tabacco Toscano is a light, refined tobacco and bergamot fragrance - easy to wear for most occasions. Glenn knew in an instant that he needed to create something similar.
Utilizing essential oils, absolutes, resins, and the same high quality aroma materials used by large perfume houses world-wide, they created a fragrance that is similar to Tabacco Toscano in at least one way: it is a light and balanced woody oriental fragrance and is wearable all year-round, particularly in colder weather. Campione is not a duplication of Tabacco Toscano, but it was definitely inspired by it.
The image on the label was created by ultra-talented Canadian artist Trevor Jameus (@roveink). Please check out his other works, and tell him we sent you.
The label is a union of inspiration from no fewer than four sources: Ferrari - the iconic Italian car manufacturer; the “Rumors of War” sculpture by American artist Kehinde Wiley; the magnificent Canadian horse breed; and Glenn's daughter’s passion for all things equine.
Only 200 soaps made, each label is individually numbered.
We hope you like a thick, glossy, creamy lather that foams up with the flick of the wrist, because that’s what Campione provides. Prepare your gear as you normally do and make your brush just slightly drier than you think it should be. Whisk. Add water gradually and methodically and you’ll be rewarded with a dense plume quicker than a Portofino.
