Henri et Victoria Handmade Shaving Soap- Cognac and Cuban Cigars
Made in Gatineau, Quebec, this shaving soap smells like an afternoon game of poker- sitting around smoking cigars and drinking a fine aged cognac. The aromas are well balanced. Not over powering. There's a hint of sweetness that comes from the tobacco and is balanced by the cognac. A definitive masculine smell.
Cedarwood, fresh leather, zesty lemon, cognac and spicy tobacco.
A thick and dense lather will greet you in abundance. Extremely easy to lather up, 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.
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.
