Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Dapper Doc's Lilac & Fig Shaving Soap (to give it its full title!) is a fresh and fragrant scent in the Victorian style. Named after notorious American gunslinger, Doc Holliday, here is what creator Douglas has to say about it:
"Doc Holliday was many things but one thing he was not was...a slob.
Holliday had rather refined tastes for a gunslinger of his time and was known to be a rather snappy dresser, sharp in wit and style. Lilac & Fig is a classy scent reminiscent of Victorian times and something our outlaw hero Doc Holiday might have bought off the back of a stage coach that just arrived from back East. I envision Doc slapping on something similar before a long night of cards or an early playhouse performance at the Birdcage Theater in Tombstone, Arizona. You may smell like Lilac & Fig but you ain't no daisy!
This Soap was originally just a "one off" special soap I created for the Arizona Shavers first Meet Up. Somehow word got out and I soon was receiving emails and private messages about this mysterious, elusive soap called Dapper Doc. Eventually I decided the time was right to make this special soap available to the general public...enjoy!"
Good quality soap, nice and slick. The scent on this one is fruity-floral, not my usual choice but i still enjoyed it. The price could be better.

- Great non-tallow croap
Absolutely lovely scent straight from the tub, right through to 3 hours after the shave. Sweet & fragrant, but not overly so. Still somehow retains an over all masculine scent profile.
Lathers a treat. Good slickness & excellent post-shave feel for a non-tallow.
A little on the expensive side when not on offer, but that's the only negative I can come up with.

A fantastic soap! Some may argue that’s it is a bit expensive, but I think it’s around the normal price range for an American artisan soap. Lather: it turns up very quickly into a luxurious and protective lather, with a good cushion and outstanding slick
