Imperial Rum Tallow Shaving Soap
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.

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