Douglas at How To Grow A Moustache and Joseph at Italian Barber have collaborated for an unusual shaving soap: Synergy/RazoRock “The beach.” It’s a shaving soap that smells like, well, the beach!
“The Beach” Back Story
I asked Douglas and Joe how they came up with “The Beach.” Douglas says:
“When I first mentioned The Beach scent I had been working on to Joe it had been purely just a joke. I’m not sure how many of you know this, but the guy’s a real beach bum w/ a serious proclivity for all things scented coconut!
The Scent and Performance
It really does smell like a beach! It’s hard for me to describe the individual elements though. Seawater and “maritime” notes to be sure but there are hints of things I can’t quite pin down. An earthy, “sandy” or “rocky” note perhaps? A very vague hint of something that suggests a dock or boardwalk (wood and tar? Not objectionable at all). Something that reminds me of seagulls? It’s amazing. And as you would suspect from a collaboration of these two artisans, the performance is excellent.
