The day that would never come...came!

Since the inception of Al Fin Aftershave/Cologne there has always been a steady demand for a matching shave soap. Granted, in the past we have done limited releases of Al Fin but that seemed more like a tease than what folks were really asking for, Al Fin as a regular offering.

Well, the day has come! AL Fin will be here to stay and never before have so many folks been so happy, including me! Al Fin For The People!

Al Fin contains the essential oils & fragrance oils of Rose, Bay Leaf, Lemon Myrtle, Vetiver, White Clover, Cypress, helichrysum,  Ambrette, Geranium and Tobacco Absolute.

The scent-scape of a dream inhabited by mythical beasts and beings. Ancient knowledge and magik, romance, a first kiss on a summer night long ago. Esoteria, alchemy and sensuality adrift on a breeze. Etta James on a car radio, a drive-in theater, staring at a night full of shooting stars from the beach where the warm waves lap like liquid tongues at your toes. This is Al Fin.

Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Shaving Soap is a handmade, hot process, vegan shaving soap produced in small batches. We took the time developing this special soap to perform great and produce a thick rich lather that will make your shave a true pleasure...the rest is up to you.  Enjoy this very special, long lasting soap puck! We thank you for giving us a shot and would love to hear what you think. Happy Shaving!

After much debating between about 5 different artisans I wanted to try, I succumbed and decided to purchase Al Fin in both the soap and the aftershave. Douglas' scent descriptions and ways he designs imagery around his scents drew me to take the plunge into PAA for the first time. I wasn't let down! The soap scent is something you will have to experience and decide on for yourself, but it is easily one of my favorites. The soap only took seconds to whip up a great lather that lasted through 3 passes with plenty left over that I didn't end up needing. There is tons of residual slickness if you need it but once toweling off the butters seep right into your skin. If you are on the fence, go ahead! The odds are high that you will not regret it for a moment!

Like most of the Douglas Smythe creations I've purchased, Al Fin smells like nothing I've encountered before. Yes, there are numerous familiar notes but they are blended in a way that makes it impossible to remember where I recognize them from. At first I wasn't sure I liked it—I had no olfactory frame of reference—but as I shaved on, it grew on me. By the end of the shave I knew it would be a regular part of my rotation. Great lather, great performance and a great, utterly-unique scent.

I have several paa soaps, al fin is probably my favorite aftershave. Sents will be personal opinion. However their soaps are as slick as could be. They generally take more water than most of my other soaps to create a lather, but they can also hold a ton of water without becoming a bubbly mess. Every lather I try to add more and more water, and the soap still stays nice and thick. At the same time the lather becomes super slick, creating an irration free shave. My razor glides over my face. With all the different soaps I have, paa is heavy in my rotation. New formula is great. Finally a matching soap for my favorite aftershave. Cad, and deja fougere are some of my favorite soaps. Excellent work douglas!
