Today I'd like to post about the "top artisans" of this year, 2016. Not only those that have brought remarkable performance to shaving software, from soaps to aftershaves, not to mention incredible scents... But those that have refined the state of the art[isan] in the market with packaging and presentation, collaboration with other artisans or have worked extremely hard to bring us our simple joys every morning...
Hot on the heels of their most recent #soap and #aftershave releases, 366 and Black Orchid - is the latest from the gang at K Shave Worx and it's called Beachwood Forest! It has alluring notes of coconut, eucalyptus, jasmine, vetiver and driftwood. The early response has been very positive. No firm release date yet, but we'll keep you posted as soon as we hear from #kshaveworx!
Unfortunately another vendor is leaving us today, this time it's Badger Shaving Co. hailing from Vancouver, Canada. The owner, Travis McDonald released the statement (seen below) in the Facebook group Canadian Wet Shavers. Until it's all gone - enjoy 30% off of everything using the code "FAREWELL" at checkout. No #drama - just sadness.
Wholly Kaw is set to release their latest scent, Dark Vetiver soon - pre-orders are now open and it will ship on Friday, November 4th. The #soap runs $18.99 for the tallow version (which recently reviewed quite favorably) and $17.99 for the vegan. The #aftershave will go for $14.99 which you can also pre-order. The scent is described as "an attempt to take vetiver to the darkest corners with a scent profile that combines notes of cedarwood, benzoin, vetiver, peru balsam on an amber and sandalwood base. A dark and very masculine scent for Fall and Winter." Get on over to #WhollyKaw and check it out.
