Blue Samhain Artisan Shave Soap | Premium CK-6 Formula | 4 oz | Seasonal Scent
The EPIC Return of A Fall Favorite, Blue Samhain!
"The lather from CK6 is just incredible. Buttery is the best way to describe this stuff. It was so buttery that I had to check the label and make sure I wasn't using Parkay. So buttery that I felt like I needed to get my cholesterol checked after the shave. Best shave soap IMO. Beats everything."~ Tim Spencer, Customer
Scent Profile: Sandalwood, Burnt Sugar, Bourbon and Pumpkin, Oak Barrel Aged.
It's back people! One of our most epic and memorable fall favorites, Blue Samhain! This stuff is just smooth. Sensual, Boozy and down right masculine.
Blue Samhain is a rich blend of whirling Fall magic, and when you read Pumpkin, don't think Pumpkin Spice, for it's not. Just a pure fresh October carved Jack-o-Lantern note, thoughtfully blended with some moody sandalwood, burnt sugar and bourbon; Festive, sensual, sophisticated and boozy.
The word, "Samhain," is derived from a compound of two ancient Gaelic words, "sam," which was an old word for "Samrad," or "Summer," and "fuin," an ancient word for "end," referring to the "end" of Summer.
End of Summer
The Irish divided the year into two parts—Summer from the 1st of May until the 1st of November, and Winter from 1st November to the 1st of May. Samhain marked the beginning of Winter, and was celebrated by one of the most important of all the Irish festivals, the "Feis-Temrach," or "convention of Tara."
Besides being the time of Tara's important festival, Samhain Eve, the night before the 1st of November, (today's "Halloween"), was special since the Celts believed that all entrances into the Otherworld opened.
This meant the fairy folk and other "immortals" might roam the earth as they pleased on this special night. Only the very brave ventured out of their homes on Samhain Eve for fear of meeting one of these supernatural beings.
As for the artwork, this was inspired by a couple careless glasses of Doc Herson's Green Absinthe and a couple sugar cubes! 'Tis the season, no? As usual, there are some "easter eggs" to be found in the label...so have fun digging and researching the story being told for you seekers!
