SanSavon RasierSeife Shaving Soap (50g)
The palm based small-manufacture German "SanSavon Rasierseife", which is not 'hot poured' into the included screw-top tin but rather cut into shape after the curing, is more of the German/Austrian learn-for-reward genre we've grown to appreciate here. It isn't nearly as finicky as Ziegenbart or the Savions, for example (in fact, for German or Austrian concoctions, thus far the only ones I've tried which I'd say are more stable in their lather are Golddachs/Dittmar and Tabac). Ten uses in now, call me officially a fan. It is pretty good stuff once you get to know it.
Much like Tabac, the odor factor here in a hard soap is strong, a bit peculiar, and generically denoted as masculine - I'm having a hard time pigeonholeling into a cubicle already well defined, but "vanilla and musk" is the early bead on the olfactories, but there's a whole lot more notes going here than that. It is manly but not musty for me, and I welcome your feedback corrections of the scent. We keep asking women when they walk in to the shop to define what they smell here, and thus far the early descriptions (I shall keep updating this page, good and bad, with every description I remember) are "the room of a cigar party with really good cigars", "black licorice", "soapy", "shoe polish", "the wax in a church on the pews", "chai", and "soapy". Unlike Tabac, you don't need a specialist's degree to decipher the ingredients, but the perfume/essential oils may indeed offend some skins so please be aware (not always to call an allergy, but the presence of limonene and linalool is something I can usually detect, here both present).
Palm, coconut, olive, castor, and cacao oils combine with shea butter and the ubiquitous sodium hydroxide. Made by hand in Eningen, Germany.
