Imperial Rum Tallow Shaving Soap
What does it smell of? Imperial Rum is a gentle and layered profile. It briefly begins with a citrus nose of lime and sweet orange before moving in to the warm and spicy note of West Indian bay whose hints of vanilla and a slight balsamic scent merge in to the cinnamon, pepper and juniper notes of Allspice (pimenta dioica). The scent climbs 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 of its scent throughout your shave.
Grounding, warming and relaxing, Imperial Rum is an impeccable choice for any season and for those who want to prolong the enjoyment of the scent we recommend the soap be paired with its solid cologne namesake.
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.
Ingredients: Potassium stearate, aqua, potassium tallowate (bovine), potassium castorate, cocos lactate, glycerin, potassium safflowerate, potassium shea butterate, lanolin, allantoin, tussah silk and essential oils: benzoin, lime, orange, bay, ylang ylang and allspice.
Method: Each soap is hand made via the hot process technique and decanted in to wide neck 100mm diameter plastic jars. We fill each jar with approximately 4oz (115g) of soap and then let them cure for 8-weeks. After this we hand clean the exterior jar (elbow grease only) before each jar has its sticker applied to its lid.
