A dry heart of spicy black pepper combines and dives down in to a rounded and warm base of comforting benzoin.

Customer Reviews


A voluptuous soap indeed
I buy soaps mostly based on their scent profiles because I have yet to come across a shave soap that cannot lather regardless of origins i.e. mass produced or artisan. Good smelling soap is important to me because I don’t use any other perfume products and like to spend my 10 min of day surrounded in scent(s) I really like and feel at home with.
With the above caveat, and the fact that sense of smell is very much an individual thing, let it be known that nothing about this Limited Edition release is feeble or middle of the road. Citrus and Lime essential oils by nature are weak and fickle but they do play nicely with little spiciness. However the soap in shines is floral accords and I do get a little rose that is not exactly ‘rosy’ and jasmine dance with citrusy naroli. In spite of being an outright floral, this is as manly as it can get. I do like heavy scented soap and while this is no silage monster the scent is there as long lather is on your face and some after you have rinsed it off. A very pleasing and firm 5-6 out of 10 scent strength.
It contains lanolin but post shave feel is not greasy like some of other artisan shave soaps and works well for me. This is going to be in summer time rotation for me.
Absolutely recommend this soap.

A nice floral soap
This is by far my most favourite soap from P&B. There is some citrus in here but to my nose it is mostly floral and banzoin that I smell. But it is very well blended and nothing girlie about it.
The soap base is nice and does not leave skin greasy unlike some heavily conditioned soap.

Amazing Product
Great Citrus Blend and the scent strengh is in the middle range, but noticable through the whole shave. It does get a bit stronger when latherd up. A really nicely done scent.
Performance is good as always. Tub design is simply gorgeous
