Fine Accoutrements Latigo Shave Soap is a new 'croap' (halfway in between a cream and soap) made in Italy. 'Latigo' is a type of leather, and the word certainly points to the main note here; this is a very masculine scent that's actuallly based on the classic Knize Ten, first manufactured in 1924.
That legendary fragrance was smoky, herbal, powdery, woody and leathery. Fine seemed to have toned down the talc/powdery aspect slightly, but kept everything else in tact, creating a powerhouse of a masculine scent. It's bold and warm, and there's a good chance you'll grow to like this more each time you use it.
With a luxurious hybrid base of tallow and vegetable, this soap performs amazingly even in hard water areas. It's generously scented and is incredibly easy to build a thick and creamy lather with.
Directions for use: Load your thoroughly dampened shaving brush with soap by vigorously working it over the product surface for 10 to 15 seconds. Then build a lather with continued vigorous brushwork in a bowl or directly on your face until no large bubbles remain. Proceed with shaving, and enjoy!
Latigo Shave Soap comes in a handsome plastic tub inside a black and white cardboard box, the colour scheme only adding to the product's retro allure.
