Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Solstice Shaving Soap is a magical, contemplative blend of aromatics, which helps to enhance the wet shaving "ceremony". A true aid in turning your shave den into a sacred space. A scent profile of Sage, Sweetgrass, Cedar, Rose Absolute and Benzoin Resin pays homage to the traditional herbs and resins used by ancient healers and mystics around the Sedona Verde Valley region in Arizona, where the artwork for the piece takes its inspiration.
- Solstice soap...a very very spiritual experience!
This soap really opened my eyes to what I'd been missing in the way of a quality artisan soap. My preferred method is to face lather. So with my trusty Semogue in hand and after blooming the soap whilst showering I gave it a go. Wow, easy to lather in the bowl but after loading the brush I began my ritual of face lathering. The scent was amazing but subtle. The lather rich and easy to form. As for using a blade it was a perfect cushion and enabled a nice relaxing and close shave with no irritation. I would recommend anyone to give this soap a test drive. I'm sure everyone will be pleased at how well this soap performs.

- What a fantastic soap!
A fantastic soap that's easy to lather (I face lather) provides fantastic razor glide with a great post shave feel. Fragrance is so good I can't help opening it up and having a sniff! I'm so impressed I have another two soaps on the way. So if you fancy a really good product with a different smell from the more traditional offerings then I highly recommend PAA.
