Achilles Last Stand Limited Edition Tallow Shaving Soap


Achilles Last Stand Limited Edition Tallow Shaving Soap

 "Oh the sweet refrain, soothes the soul and calms the pain. Oh Albion remains, sleeping now to rise again"

Credit: Achilles Last Stand by Led Zeppelin 

What does it smell of? ASL is inspired by mythological imagery drawn from the Greek hero Achilles and the thunderous Led Zeppelin song, and it's namesake, Achilles Last Stand.

We've also drawn upon our travels in Morocco to dream up a profile that invokes imagery of travelling through the scenes of the song and those times.

Notes of agarwood, rose, amber, patchouli, saffron, a couple of kisses from raspberry and pear, orange blossom and a touch of musk make an accord that's complex, deep and has something of the night about it.

Attention to detail: Our enterprise is an intimate family operation where we focus on the detail, quality and aesthetic of our products and we focus on you, our customer. An example is how we use our own hands to blend each essential oil accord. These are carefully meted out recipes that are made one batch at a time and added to the just made soap. N.b. Our soap is a thirsty beast. For a better understanding please take a moment and watch my guide on how to lather our soap.

Love this

Really great fragrance on this soap. The performance is excellent, was easy to lather and provided good slickness. Plus the artwork on the packaging is amazing. Hope it comes back into regular circulation as I would get the balm to match.

Jury is still out

Smells great. First time I used it I wasn’t impressed with the lather and I had two bad nicks from the shave. I put it down to user error as I used a new (wooden) shaving bowl I’d been given for Christmas. Have used the soap twice since and reverted back to my old ‘bowl’ (plastic lid from a dentures storage case if you’re interested). Today’s shave tackled three days beard and had a great result. But I don’t think it will knock Spitfire of its perch as my preferred option.

Service was excellent as was the delivery time, only used the soap once’s however it’s all it’s made out to be excellent, works well for me, awaiting feed back from my son who had the second tub.
