What does it smell of? Imperial Rum is a gentle and layered profile. It begins with a citrus nose of lime and sweet orange before moving in to the warm and spicy note of West Indian bay. Hints of vanilla and a slight balsamic scent merge in to the cinnamon, pepper and juniper notes of Allspice (pimenta dioica).

The scent settles down in to the sweetness and depth provided by ylang-ylang and benzoin. Imperial Rum is a balanced and carefully crafted profile that shifts and introduces aspects after its application.

Grounding, warming and relaxing, Imperial Rum is an impeccable choice for any season. For those wishing to prolong the enjoyment of the scent we recommend the lotion be paired with its solid cologne and post shave namesakes.

Great Scent Formula A Little Lacking

This soap has the nicest bay rum type scent I have smelled, it’s sweet deep complex and has a very authentic rum accord. However the formula may be a little lacking. I’m completely ready to accept that it was my fault but the lather wasn’t as creamy as I would like not as creamy as Wholly Kaw, Ariana & Evens and Barrister and Mann. I say this not out of disappointment I have lovely shaves with it I’m just pointing this out because I believe with a little tweaking this soap can be up with the all time greats!!

Best soap ever!

I just can’t get enough of the Imperial rum, it’s the best!!!

Never turned up, was looking forward to it but cannot give a positive review if never saw it. Sorry!

6 days after order I was told it was finally on its way, chased it but a further 8 days later, still nothing arrived. Requested my money back.

Hi Jack, as discussed via our emails, we're sorry you never received your order. The six day delay in getting your soap sent was due to us being away on holiday. This can be frustrating, I know, but whenever we're away we're always careful to leave a note informing customers of when we'll be back and fulfilling orders by. We do this by using a pop up banner that triggers on our landing and product pages. Royal Mail Signed For 2nd Class (your selected shipping option) is usually very prompt in getting our orders to customers and, whilst the Bank Holiday over that period shouldn't be ignored as a factor, sometimes, although thankfully very rarely, some packages do get lost. That's massively frustrating for you, the customer, because you're not getting what you had ordered and also us as we have to absorb that loss. We'd be very happy to try again and pop a little sample of something nice in your order for you. Kindest regards, Kerry.

This soap is incredible, the lather and post shave feel are excellent and the scent is amazing. I will definitely be trying more soaps from Phoenix and Beau in the future.

Imperial Rum

This is a first class product. Easily lathered, it produces a rich, creamy lather. Every shave so far has been smooth and comfortable and post shave my skin is soft and smooth with zero irritation. The scent profile is excellent both from the tub and during the shave. Overall a great product that I will gladly purchase again.
