Night Witch Limited Edition Tallow Shaving Soap

Here's one for the brother I loved

And one for the war I'm part of

Another to turn this cold blackness to light

So I may continue to fight

With love and fury as my only spell

You're already in hell

I am Night Witch.

OUR INSPIRATION

THE STORY OF NIGHT WITCH

1) The Nachthexen, or night witches. Formed in October 1941, "nachthexen" was the German nickname for the all female military aviators of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment, known later as the 46th "Taman" Guards Night Bomber Aviation Regiment, of the Soviet Air Forces. 

2) Wolf People, a vastly talented English psychedelic rock band who mostly hail a stone's throw from Phoenix and Beau and were formed in Clophill, Bedfordshire. Jack Sharp, Joe Hollick, Dan Davies and Tom Watt wrote and recorded the goose-bump inducing 'Night Witch' song for their 2016 album, Ruins.

A story of female heroism during WW2, of loss and of duty, this is a song that rips and snarls its way through swirling chords, fuzzed up guitar, pulsating bass and towering drums. We loved the song so much we wanted to dedicate something we make to it, and Jack and the guys were gracious enough to grant us permission to embed the video and song right here (thanks guys, you're as awesome as your music!

3) Old Spice, or specifically our want to offer our own homage to the classic staple. We've used the colour scheme of the Shulton Companies best known product and, given that this counts as our Halloween (Autumnal) release, thought it appropriate to go for design that links Old Spice, the nachthexen and the occult.

We hope you like it.

What does it smell of? A homage and doffing of cap to the staple classic that is the Schulton Companies classic scent 'Old Spice'. As you might imagine, it's a beautiful and aromatic fougere, with top notes of galbanum, lavender, bergamot, lemon, lime, orange and black current. The heart is made of rose and lily of the valley before dropping down to a base of patchouli, cedar, opoponax, ambergris and oakmoss.

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.

There is spice in this!

Reminiscent of Old Spice of old. Quite a nice scent and paired with Old Spice AS it is shaving as it used to be, but better! Quality soap as ever. This should be part of your shaving kit. If it isn't, then order now.

Pure luxury!

Night Witch is just beautiful. A homage to Old Spice but not a clone. The scent is beautiful. Definitely could be worn year long but so nice for the autumn. Well done P&B you have smashed it out the park once again!
