What's news at Phoenix and Beau?
Well Spring is (more or less) here in the UK and with it comes new products and a few changes to our business.
First up, we'll get the bad news out of the way and that's a rise in our prices, specifically the price of our 4oz soaps. Since launching back in February 2016 we've absorbed a number of material cost increases and have managed to take these on without passing anything on to you.
However this is no longer sustainable and if we want to remain profitable we have to increase our price. As a consequence our 4oz soaps have risen from £10.95 to £11.99, which is a slender increase of 9%.
Right, that's the bad bit out of the way, now for the good bit!
New soaps, solid cologne and free postage - HOORAY!
As you'll know we have our own version of a bay rum soap that will be released on May 31st. We've called it Imperial Rum and it offers a layered and seductive scent that moves and shifts throughout all the way from un-lidding, to building your lather, to the shave and then post shave.
Both it and its label are a beauty and, as you'd expect, it pairs impeccably with the solid cologne version (also for release on 31st May).
Beyond Imperial Rum we have another core range soap and five seasonal / limited edition soaps that we'll be releasing as follows:
- DENALI (Seasonal): Pre-order 31/05 - 07/06. Available 31st June
- PALL MALL (Core): Available 31st July
- OBERON (Limited Edition): Pre-order 31/07 - 07/08. Available 31st Aug
- OBSIDIAN (Seasonal): Pre-order 31/8 - 07/09. Available 30th Sept
- WHITECHAPEL (Limited Edition): Pre-order 30/09 - 07/10. Available 31st Oct
- BOREALIS (Seasonal): Pre-order 31/10 - 07/11. Available 30th Nov
