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.

A class act: super scent, great thick creamy lather (hot or cold water), slick, and no burn. Up there with the best IMHO
Nice masculine scent, but not overpowering.
At the time I didn’t enjoy shaving as my skin would get irritated but when I am saw this advertised in GQ I though I try a new way of shaving than just using Gillette gel. Since I bought this products I have never gone back. The smell is great and doesn’t irritate my skin. I also like fact it’s make in UK and it’s a small company. Your doing a great job
Very masculine - it will pair very well with any cologne that is leather and or tobacco. Excellent scent that lathers into a thick cream with ease. I like that the soap is not filled to the rim so there is room to work up the lather but it would be nice if tins were used instead of plastic. Artisan shaving soap at it's best.
Excellent service after a delay by royal mail they sent Out another pot free of charge when e-mailed them saying two have turned up all they Said don't worry so long as you're happy that's all that matters excellent service
