Martin de Candre Rose Shaving Soap was inspired by customer feedback on new fragrances. The rose scent surprises with the powerful yet delicate nature of its perfume. Elegant, flowery, and with an irresistibly fresh fragrance of real roses.

Traditionally made using the Marseilles or Hot Process method, Martin de Candre Rose Shaving Soap generates a rich and warm lather when used with a shaving brush and hot water. The lather protects the skin and softens the beard while providing an extremely close shave.

Advice from Martin de Candre on how to achieve the best possible shave:

-  Thoroughly wash your face with warm water for a couple of minutes.

- Always rinse your shaving brush well under warm water after each use and gently flick out the excess water. Too much water and the lather will become runny and will dry out too quickly when applied to face.

- Brush the shaving soap in a circular, whisking motion with the shaving brush until a rich lather forms. Do not press down on the bristles, as this may damage the brush - simply move in quick circular motions.

- Now use the brush to apply the lather to your beard in small, gentle, circular motions or in gentle painting motions. Experiment until you produce a good lather.

- When finished, quickly rinse the shaving soap bowl-like container under cold water to remove excess foam. Invert bowl so as to let soap drain and dry. Soap dries best when bowl is left open.

A good shaving soap used along with a shaving brush provides an extremely close shave making you feel clean and comfortable. Now the once mundane task of shaving turns into a morning treat!

Customer Reviews

French delight!
I cannot add anything to the other reviews of this excellent soap. It is so easy to lather and will last months! The scent is by far the best of any soap I've had with no irritation which sometimes happens with cheaper soaps.

MDC soaps speak for themselves. Absolutely among the best in the business. Don't let the price fool you. A container will last you many months of daily use, making the long term price very affordable. The English shaving company delivered to the U.S.A. and a very fair price. $20 cheaper (including intl. shipping) than buying from US vendor.

Worth every penny
Expensive , yes, but worth it. Sublime scent and enough luxurious lather for a three pass shave with only a couple of swirls across the puck with a dampened brush. This stuff will go a long way and will last. Close, comfortable shaves and you’re left with very comfortable post-shave skin, no tightness or dryness, just great non-irritated clean skin. Lathers very easily. What more do you want ? Probably the best shaving soap I’ve used.

Rose - a scent for kings
They say that Rose is the scent of kings and MdC scent is truly regal. This isn’t a synthetic Turkish-delight style rose scent; this is deep and velvety, it’s rich in its opening and finishes slightly greener. The Rose has the typical MdC benzoin base scent which I love.
