Various news from artisans, vendors and more as it relates to the wet shaving community.

Chatillon Lux Releases Coming!

Chatillon Lux "TSM Fougére"

Chatillon Lux revealed today that they will be releasing a new winter seasonal scent on Black Friday - November 25, 2016 - called Unconditional Surrender. It's inspired by Ulysses S. Grant and features notes of amber, tonka bean, cedarwood and agarwood, with cigar tobacco, amyris, vetiver, black tea, jasmine and geranium supporting it! The scent will be made available in all three of the formulations (aftershave, salve and toner) and as an #EdT - along with the much anticipated EdT release of Gratiot League Square.

DDoS Attack on Dyn Disrupts Shaving Sites

AOL - "America OffLine"

As you can see from the map above, the east coast of America as well as a good chunk of the west... Has been affected by a huge DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack on Dyn which provides DNS (Domain Name Service) for hundreds and hundreds of sites. This affects sites such as Shopify and Etsy, which a lot of shaving artisans and vendors (such as B&M, PAA and K Shave Worx to name a tiny few - full list below) rely on to host their eCommerce sites. Likewise, you can't pay for anything using PayPal for the same reason. Some Friday #drama for y'all. It started at 7am EST and was thought resolved, but is clearly ongoing. Check out to see just how bad it is.


New Releases from TTFFC Announced

TTFFC "The Beast"

Through the Fire Fine Craft has released a pair of #soap and #aftershave combos today, called The Beast and Through the Fire! While the latter has been available previously in their vegan formula, it is now available in tallow as well. I've reviewed #ttfcrafts software previously, and generally had very good things to say about them. More details down below!

Black Orchid from K Shave Worx Announced

K Shave Worx "Black Orchid"

If you're a regular reader of the Daily Lather you'll know I'm a fan of K Shave Worx (check out my reviews). I've noticed that with the prior release of 366 that #KShaveWorx is getting more adventurous, with more complex scents. Starting today, they've announced Black Orchid (soap and aftershave)! It's a collab with Hazelet's Apothecary Gentleman's Lounge on Facebook which is described as a special lounge club scent. It does sound good, with top notes of ginger, black pepper and ylang blossom, spicy floral middle of gardenia, jasmine, orchid and clove bud with bottom notes of patchouli, amber, balsam, vanilla, musk, and sandalwood! Whoa. I might have to check out this #soap and #aftershave combo.
