I'm happy to announce two big improvements on the site that I think everyone will love... The first is an all new search engine and the second is a new scoring system! They both make the site more helpful and informative, and they're something I've been wanting to do for a while. Read more below for a full explanation of each!
Apparently spring 2017 is lavender season in shavedom. There have been almost a dozen new lavender scents released so far (or very soon). It stands to reason, as it's a decidedly springtime scent. This fine fragrance note has been used for hundreds, even thousands of years in soaps and fragrances and is seeing quite the renaissance this year!
The scent of lavender with a soothing undertone that is somehow familiar yet unnatural. After the lavender fades all that remains is something resembling coffin wood and ozone, a disturbingly pleasant combination... Flowers in the Dark by Dr. Jon's will be released as a shaving soap, aftershave and EdT on June 1st, 2017 and will also be available to everyone attending the meet up at Maggard Razors in May. Be sure to check out all the #DrJonsSoapCo #soap and #aftershave reviews as well!
June is shaping up to be an insane month in the shavosphere. All I can say is, "start saving up now." Two vendors whom I've raved about are #landlgrooming and #chatillonlux (click either hashtag for reviews). These guys made my Top & Bottom Ten Artisans of 2016 list for a reason... Anyhow, they often team up together for soap and post-shave provision combos and it's looking like June (the second anniversary of Chatillon Lux) will be a blockbuster as they party together with L&L Grooming to release a trio of must-have, limited edition combos...
