Spitfire Tallow Shaving Soap
What does it smell of? Spitfire is a scent I designed around the olfactory memories I have of my Grandfather, who was himself a WW2 Veteran of North Africa and Italy. An avid pipe smoker my "Papa" had an almost tangible air of leather and tobacco that seemed to follow him wherever he went.
For Spitfire I've taken the sweet crispness of juniper and blended that with the freshness of bergamot, woodiness of cedarwood and laid all three on to a base of warming leather and rich tobacco.
An old fashioned and grounding scent Spitfire transports me back to my very early years. Please note that in terms of scent strength Spitfire is a moderately bold scent that I place in the middle of our olfactory strength range.
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.

I purchased some of this soap a while ago. It ran out and I tried a number of others that claimed sent of bay rum, leather and tobacco. However nothing compares to spitfire. It doesn’t smell like a spitfire cockpit because I know what that really smells like! I’ll not go into why! However, it does have an antique, warming, nostalgic aroma worthy of a bygone era. To sum up. It is the best shave soap I’ve ever used.
Amazing scent and good prices since soaps last longer than advertised
Speedy service. Excellent items.
One of the most enjoyable shaves I’ve had in a long time. Superb lather performance. Amazing scent just like it’s described. Leather and tobacco.
The soap is of high quality, lathers easily, has an alluring scent and good post-shave feel. The scent profile is medium to strong off the puck, and the scent lingers for a bit after shaving (for more scent, use the associated Spitfire post-shave products, which I also recommend). I'd recommend this soap to anyone, from beginner wet-shaver to professional. Do yourself, and those who smell you, a favor - get this soap. This will have a permanent home in my collection of shaving soaps. Thank you to P&B for speedy shipping, even overseas.
