Based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, Phoenix and Beau are a family business founded and led by Kerry & Sarah Burrows. The Phoenix & Beau Night Witch Shaving Soap 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.
The band Wolf People, who hail a stone’s throw away from Pheonix & Beau’s home base, released a song called Night Witch for their 2016 album Ruins. The song is about the ‘Night Witches’ or The Nachthexen, the German nickname for female military aviators. Pheonix & Beau loved the song so much, they wanted to create a soap named after it.
The formula features a tallow, castor oil, and coconut milk extract, which allows the soap to be particularly soft and nourishing.
The fragrance is an homage to the classic staple that is Old Spice. Being an autumnal edition soap, the fragrance is appropriately aromatic, with top notes of galbanum, lavender, bergamot, lemon, lime, orange and blackcurrant, followed by heart notes of rose and lily of the valley. The base notes are made up of patchouli, cedar, opoponax, ambergris, and oakmoss.
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 often praised for their ease of lathering, even in hard water areas.
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 artwork of a witch silhouette that is sure to catch the attention of anyone who comes across it. The colour scheme also plays homage to Old Spice with its red and white colour palette. The eye-catching nature of the design is typical of a quality Phoenix & Beau product, delivering on both style and substance!

Excellent shaving soap, slick and protective. Scent is really nice. My dad used Old Spice aftershave and this soap brings memories. Higly recommended. You might want to try also Spitfire shaving soap.
