The Abbate y La Mantia Don Jose Shaving Soap offer a refreshing and captivating fragrance of coconut and banana.

As with all of their shaving soaps, the base is saponified with the active ingredients of saffron but this time with added menthol crystals for a wonderfully fresh post shave feel.

Saffron features:

CAROTENOIDS - They fight free radicals, which are responsible for cellular ageing. They have antioxidant and anticancer effects and they help against the decay of brain cells. Saffron has the highest content of carotenoids (1000 times more than that of a carrot). It contains soluble carotenoids, so they can be very easily assimilated.

VITAMIN B1 - Very important for the metabolism (it transforms sugar into energy).

VITAMIN B2 - Necessary for  cellular metabolism, it strengthens the immune system and helps assimilate iron.

*VITAMIN B1 and VITAMIN B2 are present in saffron in abundance. Moreover saffron also contains a large quantity of vitamin C and B6.

SAFRANALE - It activates the metabolism, is assimilated very fast, and makes it easier to produce gastric juices which help digestion. The safranale is the element which determines the typical saffron smell.

Loads of menthol, you can barely sense the banana. Not what i was expecting.
Review by Daniel / (Posted on 14/08/2020)
This is not quite a hard soap, not quite soft. The smell is beautiful, tho it is only banana, as others have observed. The menthol is very subtle, but present, which personally is to my liking. Most importantly the the lather is thick, creamy and smooth, giving an extremely nice shave with my Thiers Izzard. I have tried quite a few different soaps and cremes and can say this is one of the best.
It comes in presentation box which is rather nice (tho irrelevant). The tin inside is wide and flat so pretty good for lathering up in and the design on it is nicely excentric.
I suppose it's more expensive than some soaps which is the main downside but I was not disapointed. Would recommend.

Don Jose you genius
Amazing soap. Whips up fantastically, smells amazing subtle banana and a hit of coconut....but it's when it's applied it excels.....I use a proraso menthol pre shave, but the cold smack of menthol and banana from this soap is delightful. Slick and rich and creamy. A joy. Get more in stock!!

Great quality soap with a great scent , I can smell both banana and coconut. Took 30 seconds to lather up and created a nice thick lather. The slickness was ok but not the best . I would definitely buy again

Nice banana scented soap
Ok, this is a banana scented soap. If there's any coconut in there I cannot detect it even if I really try.
Menthol is nice and more refreshing than cooling, hardcore mentholheads will be dissapointed.
Good cushion and slickness, post shave is really good. Fantastic presentation too.

Little disappointing
Faint banana scent but can`t really detect any coconut. Loads more menthol than I was expecting and it was almost as icy as Stirling MITA.
