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. 

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. Here's a short video on how to build our lather.

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.

Absolutely stunning

Everything about this soap is incredible - lather, glide / cushion, scent, post shave feeling, design etc... I absolutely love it, thanks to Phoenix and Beau for yet another stunning soap, I will definitely be ordering again soon.

Great performing soap

Soap lathers beautifully and makes for a great shave. The scent is refreshing and has just the right amount of intensity. One of my favorite takes on bay rum.


This is my first “bay rum” scent and I absolutely love it! A very spicy bay, not what we can get here. It might sounds silly, but the scent also reminds me of a coca-cola-flavoured sweet I used to love during my childhood! ^^
As always with PB tallow-based soaps, excellent performance. Very happy!
