Customer notice: Sanskrit will be discontinued at the end of January 2019. Once it's gone, it's gone.

What does it smell of? Sanskrit is a subtle and complex oriental spice scent that evolves as you build your lather and shave with each pass. It offers a rich, spicy and warming experience.

The top notes are a blend of citrus oils which include lemongrass, mandarin, lime, litsea cubeba (a lemon like citrus scent) and orange. Warmth and spice follow on in the middle notes and include clove bud, cardamom, black pepper and the light touch of geranium.

The base notes were chosen to give the scent some "bottom" and include, patchouli, benzoin (a warm vanilla type scent) and sandalwood.

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.

Memories of India

I managed to get this soap just as stockists were running out. Used it today and I was delighted by the scent and the quality of the soap. Had a fab shave that was BBS. Very slick, cushioning and lovely lather. This reminds me of looking out of the window in the Taj Krishna hotel in Hyderabad and watching the sun slip below the horizon whilst the sound and smells of the surroundings assaulted my senses. Thankfully I have this soap for many shaves to come.

Fantastic soap

Shaving with the sanskrit soap is a delight. The scent is great and it lathers very very well.

As wonderful as the experts would say.

Bought this based on two factors : 1:I've never heard anyone say a bad word about Phoenix and Beau soap and 2:The description of the scent ticked that box for me.
The scent: One word...MAMA! I'm no good at the "I'm getting notes of..."
The shave: The most effortless and slick I've had. I used the same razor and blade combo as I had with other soaps, but this is different class.
I see their soap is regularly sold out... No wonder!

Sanskrit Tallow Shaving Soap

Great product, arrived very quickly. This is the third product I have purchased from Phoenix and Beau and all of them have been great

Excellent soap

I really enjoy this fine scent. Warm eastern aromas and citrus. All P&B soaps make a great lather and tvis is no exception.

This scent would make a great cologne.

The only club in town
