Squadron Shave Soap- Group Captain's Blend
The Group Captain's Blend is reminiscent of an aromatic pipe tobacco. First up the vanilla hits you, followed quickly by malt, tobacco leaf and cedar wood. It's like opening a fresh pouch of old-school sweet pipe tobacco. The notes are nicely balanced and the vanilla isn't strong but gives a nice warm overall scent.
Note: You may notice a chocolate discolouration in this soap, it is totally normal, still okay to continue use and is a result of vanilla in the soap.
About Squadron Soap:
"I was a kid that grew up in a military family. Mum, Dad, Uncle, Aunties, they were all serving in the Royal Australian Air Force, others in my extended family were serving in the Royal Australian Navy and Australian Army. A Grandfather in the Army during WW2, distant relatives in WW1, and further back some during the Boer War.
No surprise I joined the Air Force myself when I was old enough, serving for almost 2 decades.
In my final few years in the Air Force I became interested in wet-shaving along with a few work colleagues. We shared various soaps, brushes and embraced all that was 'old' about the familiar morning routine of shaving. Someone said 'you should have a go at making your own shaving soap' - and that's where it began, a bit over a year of testing, tweaking and fine tuning my recipe to get where it is here today.
The name 'Squadron Soap', is a nod to that part of my life, and the artwork and names are reminiscent of the British 'Commando' Comics I read as a kid. I was most interested in WW2, and that is the theme of our soap range.
All our soaps are made by hand, manufactured in small batches of no more than 7 tubs at a time. Sure we could make larger batches, but we like to keep it small so we can keep a close eye on everything. I just wanted to produce a good soap, at an affordable price, with 'old school' ingredients like Tallow and Lanolin.
Squadron Soap is based in the rural outskirts of the Barossa Valley in South Australia."
