Captain Fawcett's Scapicchio's Tallow Shaving Soap in Bowl
‘Scapicchio’ is a name synonymous with one of the oldest barber families in the world. Opening his first barber shop all the way back in 1820, Signor Marco Scapiccio passed down his knowledge of artisan skills through five generations, making the Scapaccio family the masters of the art of vintage Italian shaving. This beautifully crafted soap is a collaboration between Captain Fawcett and Scapicchio.
The Fig, Olive and Bay Rum Shaving Soap is the signature scent in this collaborative range, inspired by the abundant fig and olive groves found in the Scapicchio family’s native Puglia. A hint of West Indian bay rum has been added for good measure, creating a unique merge between various old-world traditions.

First of all the scent is better than 5 star. Remember your first puck of SV Flying Mango? If you were like me, you stopped several times a day to smell the puck. Same here….wonderful fragrance, which reminded me of SV, however in use it dissipates quickly. (That maybe an advantage for some, as I don’t think there will be a problem in competing scents, shave soap vs after shave/cologne).
I love this shaving soap….I’d love it more if it were scented stronger, but here’s my suggestion if you face lather. Use a brush with substantial backbone. During the summers I only use boar brushes. There’s quite a few that make the rotation, but they’re all well broken in, regardless of their loft, and very silky. This is a hard soap and overloading the brush was difficult, till I used my stubby horse hair brush from Bullgoose. The lather is amazing, and ultimately makes this soap a real keeper.
This is a very satisfying soap to use. It seems to lather effortlessly and is slick and luxurious. I find the scent to be luxurious as well. In a world of loud and over bright scents, this one is soothing, velvet, and delicious.
I've been using this most excellent shaving soap for some time.
With both tallowate and glycerin as glide agents (extra security like wearing both a belt and suspenders!) there is superb lubrication.
And he rich lather and the unique fig/olive/bay rum scent sets it apart from other excellent soaps. Seems a bit odd that a classic Italian barbering school went to a British source for their soap but they certainly came up with a winner for their private label but they obviously knew what they were doing and The Captain delivered.
Highly recommended. Get it while you can 'cause it seems to be selling out worldwide.
Oh, yes, the bowl with metal crest is pretty classy.
