Gentleman's Nod - Vincent - Artisan Shave Soap
From Gentleman's Nod:
Q - “if you had to sum up the difference between your original soap and this in one word, what would it be?”
A - MORE
Is the original formula slick? This is in another category of slick!
Did the original formula leave your skin feeling great? This might just cause a smile to spread across your face that lasts throughout the day!
Did the original formula have a dense cushioning lather? You can create mounds of lather to spare with this formula!
Tallow, Castor, and an assortment of milks and proteins combine to make an excellent, dense and creamy lather. The anti-inflammatory and skin nourishing mix in this soap ensures that your skin is on its way to feeling healthy and refreshed before you even reach for our post-shave serum. Give our new formula a try - trust us, your face will thank you!
T - Almond, Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lime, Orange
M - Indian Rosewood, Cypress, Lavender, Tonka Bean
D - Orcanox, Oak Moss, Vetiver
Vincent - Van Gogh was perhaps the most famous artist the world has known. His life and works exemplified the contrast of beauty and tragedy. To illustrate this further, his most beloved work The Starry Night, from which we derived the number 11 (# of stars), was created just a month after having himself committed. The inspiration for this complex fragrance was taken from the prolific period of Arles and Saint-Rémy.
The fragrance opens with the nutty sweet and fresh combination of almond and citrus. The heart of this fragrance transitions into a spicy green floral dominated by lavender, cypress and rosewood. A deep, rich finish that is earthy, powdery and green is created by the combination of Oakmoss, Orcanox, and Vetiver. Though Van Gogh only sold (1) painting during his lifetime, his works have left an indelible impression on the world of art. We hope this fragrance leaves a lasting impression as well.
How to use:
Soak your shaving brush in warm water. Load brush with soap by whisking brush over top of soap in a circular motion. This tends to be a thirsty soap so for a rich, dense lather add a few drops of water at a time as you build the lather on the soap, in your favorite bowl or on your mug (aka face). You can also add a few drops of hot water on top of soap before starting for quicker lathering. This formula is super efficient so 30 seconds of loading is more than enough for an excellent 3 pass shave. Shave well!
