Ushering out the warm weather - see you next year! - with Dapper Man by Oleo Soapworks (based on Amouage Beach Hut Man) in this Special Edition release #soap and #aftershave!

An olfactive escape to a place of freedom and oblivion where nature overpowers all senses.

I actually did an in-depth review of Dapper Man so do check that out for more info. The soap today is based on the Canard base 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.

Hardware today consisted of the Frankenrazor that is a #Yaqi matte-black Mellon head, a Shaving Shop Assassin razor handle and a #StandardRazors stand with a #PolSilver blade on shave three. The brush is a nice #ThatDarnRob piece called Blaze with a 26mm Silver Fox knot. The #GTP scuttle brings up the rear.

Really, really nice shave from the razor today. Between longer growth and a nicely settled in, yet fresh blade and some great software from #OleoSoapworks - it all just lined up! Too bad the warm weather's gone for the year though... Time to put this scent on ice until it returns next year.
