The Shaving Soap is made by Saponificio Varesino utilizing their latest Beta 4.3 formula and, it is excellent. The scent is a standard Colonia scent similar in profile to Aqua di Parma and is suitable for year round use. It is subtle, sophisticated and not at all cloying.
Because the shaving soap is a triple milled soap, it will last a very long time making the cost per shave extremely economical. Unlike many triple milled soaps, Asylum Colonia easily builds lather and the lather that is produced is thick, slick, and nourishing. You will be amazed at the face feel when you are done shaving.
We had released the Colonia soap a few years ago using the older Beta 4.1 formula. That soap was a huge hit but, this soap is much better in the performance department. To add to your enjoyment, there is now a matching aftershave.
The Colonia aftershave has the same scent profile as the soap with scent notes of Bergamot, Citrus, Lemon, Bitter Orange, Sweet Orange, English Lavender, Bulgarian or Damascene Rose, Verbena, Clary Sage, Rosemary, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver, and Oakmoss.
Like most of the Saponificio Varesino aftershaves, the Colonia aftershave is somewhere between a splash and a balm. It absorbs quickly and is very soothing.
Colonia was a special run that we commissioned from Saponificio Varesino and, it is a BullGoose Shaving exclusive. Be sure to grab some while it is available.
