There is nothing more classic a scent in wet shaving, especially in the last 20 years, than Proraso Green Splash! The only real problem I ever had with this juice is how close to the skin the scent was when worn...not a bad thing at all. In fact, for a traditional aftershave, this is on point. However, the scent just rocks! I'm a firm believer in "leave them wanting more" but this was too much and I wasn't alone on this. Many folks over the years wanted a matching soap. I can hear some of you now, "but there is a matching shave cream Doug!"
That's kinda true, but not really. Though there is a Tube of cream in the line, it is more complimenting than matching. Meaning, the scent is not the same though it does share similar dna. The cream I find to be menthol and Eucalyptus, and that's pretty much it. Great stuff still and will certainly wake you up in the morning but not a perfect match. Once more, this is perfectly in line in past tradition when it comes to aftershave and shave soap. Like William's Mug Soap & Aqua Velva often sold as a pair, and pair they do, but they are not the same.
For years we would get requests for just this very thing, a matching shave soap in a stronger rendition of this iconic scent. But it wasn't till Christopher David Bailey requested it in a vid have jokingly that I really took it seriously. Chris has always raved about this particular fragrance with real, sincere excitement. He also hasn't really had an homage soap done for him in a long time. So it just seemed like the stars had finally aligned. Oh and then when it came to naming the produc,t I had to opt for one of Bailey's classic catch phrases, Awesome Sauce. Again, the stars were aligned.
