I have researched the products from a large list of vendors that I have accumulated over the years and compiled them into one episode to create a “One Stop Shop” for seasonal products.

  • Product: Fougere Gothic Soap and AS
    • Scent profile from maker: “I began with the core skeleton of all fougères, the classic combination of lavender, oakmoss, bergamot, geranium, and tonka bean. To this were added the ancient, primordial influences of balsam fir, vetiver, cedar, and mushroom, topped off with the richness of smooth musks, sandalwood, leather, and tuberose. Finally, and most distinctly, I blended in the essences of black ashes and smoldering flame to echo the fires of Hell, burning for all time.


Vendor: Uncle Jon’s

  • Product: Pumpkin Spice Soap and As
    • Scent profile from maker: “With notes of pumpkin, clove, vanilla, all spice and more! It’s like hanging out at your favorite coffee shop in the Fall.”


Vendor : L & L Grooming

  • Product: Darkfall soap and AS
    • Scent profile from maker: “Agarwood, amber, and benzoin provide a deep, warm base for the cinnamon and clove top notes. Birch tar adds a slight smokiness that represents the ever-present smell of burning leaves that heralds the arrival of autumn in Georgia.”


Vendor: The Los Angeles Soap Company

  • Product: Myrkviðr is pronounced “mirk vitter” soap
    • Scent profile from maker: “The ingredients and essential oils in this soap combine to provide a subtle, warm, earthy, almost spicecakey scent. As I described the scent elsewhere, it’s almost “what you might expect if a forest gnome invited you for a holiday dinner – quiet, kind of earthy, with some hints of spice”


Feedback to vendors and artisans:

  • I apologize in advance if I missed any products. Currently my list contains over 80 vendors which unfortunately limits my search to roughly 2-3 minutes per site due to my hectic work and study schedule (podcasting is only a hobby)
  • One thing I noticed while searching is how hard it is for me to find seasonal or limited release items on websites.
  • Here is some recommendations to make it easier for podcasters and more importantly customers to find your products.
    • Make seasonal products have more of an identity. Use a separate tab with the products so we can find them.
    • Utilize graphics, pictures ect to make it easy to see.
    • Clearly state the item is “seasonal” in the product description.


What’s coming up with the cast:

  • Review Series Begins 10/16/17
  • A talk about the Wet Shaving Industry as a whole
  • Some new products!!
  • Winter Special coming December!
  • Wet Shaving Year in Review for 2017. (Last show in December)

    1. Thank you for the comment!’

      At this point in time the only relationship I have is with Sharpologist. I’m sorry if this disappoints.

      As always if you have any ideas for content please feel free to email me at anytime. I’m always open for suggestions.

  1. OK OK They all smell exotic or at least nice. But how do they work as wet shaving products?
    Do they remove facial hair smoothly and effectively.
    Focusing as you do only on the scent is like buying a car strictly by the color of the exterior paint. It may look (smell) cool but how does it drive (remove stubble)?
    Personally, I’d take the worst smelling shave product that works over the best fragrance that doesn’t.
    Just my 3 cents.

    1. Thanks for the comment!

      Unfortunately I have not tried all of these products. In fact I have not tried most of these products. As I mentioned in the cast this episode is merely a one stop shop for seasonal products. My intentions were to create an area where you could find all of your favorite seasonal products from some very well-known vendors.
