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.

Fantastic shave soap. Lathers incredibly well with my Simpsons Chubby 2 band and ensures a great shave. I love the scent as reminds me of old days, cleaning the hunting guns back in NZ . Is a real masculine scent and so hard to beat! Highly recommend!
I was unsure what to expect from the description. I was pleasantly surprised that the fragrance is like a lovely pipe tobacco, with some citrus notes in there for good measure. Lovely thick lather too.
Classic shaving is not popular in Japan, and high quality shaving soaps are hard to find, but I am very satisfied with the quality of this product.
In Japan, most shaving foams and gels have a menthol scent, so the citrus, leather, and tobacco scent was very interesting.
I’d love to review the soap but I’m still waiting for the delivery
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.
