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.

Amazing scent

Recently purchased spitfire soap and splash after trying out a sample a couple of months back. Great scent profile and quick delivery. Many thanks!!

Perfect lather, very masculine scent

To be honest, I first bought this soap because I ride a BSA Spitfire motorbike. The name roped me in. But then I discovered this soap is really, REALLY good. It lathers beautifully - thick, soft, gentle on my skin, doesn't dry or cake on my face. Then, the fragrance is superb. Yes,leather and tobacco, a masculine scent. Not flowery, just an earthy DIFFERENT experience.
I have bought a few more tubs to make sure I have a good supply in case supplies to Australia are interrupted.
Highly recommend this one.

Great Soap!

The Spitfire shave soap from Phoenix and Beau is an excellent product. The smell is very much as advertised with a strong sense of Tobacco and Leather. It laters well and provides an excellent shave.
