Based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, Phoenix and Beau are a family business founded and led by Kerry & Sarah Burrows. The Phoenix & Beau Sanskrit Soap 115g is a limited-edition tallow-based handmade shaving soap.

Kerry & Sarah lovingly hand make every batch of their stellar products, all of which offer a great shave and are packed full of skin loving ingredients.

Sanskrit shaving soap is a subtly fragranced with top notes of citrus oils which include lemongrass, mandarin, lime, litsea cubeba (a lemon like citrus scent) and orange. Warmth and spice follow on in the middle notes and include clove bud, cardamom, black pepper and the light touch of geranium. The base notes were chosen to give the scent some "bottom" and include, patchouli, benzoin (a warm vanilla type scent) and sandalwood.

For best results, lather up with a high-quality shaving brush and water and apply to the area you’re planning on shaving. Rinse well after use. Phoenix and Beau soaps are 'thirsty beasts', meaning they require plenty of water to lather up, but the lather created is particularly luxurious and praised by many for its quality performance.

The soap is presented in a 115g tub with a screw top lid for ease of use. The hand applied vinyl waterproof label features eye-catching luna/space inspired artwork. The eye-catching nature of the design is typical of a quality Phoenix & Beau product, delivering on both style and substance!

Customer Reviews

You either love it or hate it.
The scent was horrible for me, but my friend was blown away by the scent.

Reminds me very much of....
Old Spice!

If you liked the original OS soap from the 1980's or earlier, you'll love this.
The nose has a fair old whack of complex spice/citrus with the warm comfort of sandalwood. During the lathering process it mellows somewhat and that's when I get the vintage OS smell.

Great performance as always.
A great shame it's about to be discontinued.

Coca cola smell
If you want a quality soap with pepsi or coke smell, this is it!

The soap is one of the best that I have used, but the filling of the container should be improved.
The filling of the containers should be improved - I doubt that the mass is as specified. The soap itself is extraordinary good - one of the best that I have used, but the half-empty container was a disappointment.

Sanskrit Saving Soap
This is my first venture into the 'proper' wet shaving world so I have nothing to compare against, but so far I am very happy with this product.
Nice fragrance, and my kids love it on me. So happy days.
Fully recommended.
