Star Noir Tallow Shaving Soap

  • £17.99

What does it smell of? Star Noir is a scent inspired by our love of British music icon, David Bowie. It politely nods its cap to one of his favourite scents which was 'Minotaure' by Paloma Picasso.

The final version is an enigmatic and bohemian blend that opens with notes of jasmine absolute, clary sage, bergamot and coriander. Anchoring the scent are layers of amber, musk, sandalwood, ylang ylang, benzoin and patchouli. It is a shape shifting fragrance that dries down to a stubborn and powdery finish.

Shaving soap is excellent, easy to lather after blooming and slick and smooth as silk.
However, this is all about the scent. I didn't know 'Minotaure', but if this is similar it's a heady, old fashioned (nowt wrong with that) perfume where the Ylang Ylang takes the initial lead.
I like it very much, and if David Bowie liked it, then so do I. I still can't get used to him not being around and this prolongs a lifetime love and preserves the memory!


Star Noir Tallow Shaving Soap - Limited Edition


Despite being described as a stubborn, powdery finish the lather is incredible. The scent is on par with Spitfire and the design appears to pay respects to “Labyrinth” by Mark Wallinger; the mazes found in London Underground stations. Nothing but 5 stars!


Scent is Minotaur clone - soap is world class - design is formidable
