I actually did an in-depth review of Xocolātl and an in-depth review of Dapper Man so do check those out for more info. Of the two, the soap today is based on the newer soap base, called Canard and includes duck fat. Dapper Man is a very limited Special Edition of 30 tubs (with matching aftershaves and toners), which of course - sold out rather quickly. The soap listed for $18, the aftershave $11 and the balm $10. No additional runs will be forthcoming. The scent is based on Beach Hut Man by Amouage - a woody aromatic fragrance for men, launched in 2017. The nose behind that fragrance is Elise Benat. The shared notes include top notes of mint, orange blossom and galbanum; middle notes of vetiver, moss and ivy and base notes of myrrh, patchouli and woods.
The hardware consisted of another run with the #TimelessRazor with a #Stork titanium handle and a #PolSilver blade on shave two. The brush was the crazy good Fiery from #TurnNShave. I tell you, these Motherlode knots (seen here in a 26mm size) are really unique. Ridiculously soft on the face and dense. The hairs are so fine, they clump together with the least bit of moisture. Not a lot of backbone either - they are makeup brushes, after all. But is it plush! The #GTP scuttle kept the lovely knot going around and around, making sweet, sweet lather.
Again today, the Timeless Razor was super smooth and throwing the Grizzly Bay brush with its Motherlode knot into the mix was just icing on the cake. Of course, the great new Oleo Soapworks formula in a killer scent doesn't hurt either. All that's missing... Is the warm weather!
