RazoRock Plague Doctor Shaving Cream Soap After Shaving Splash

In 17th century Venice, Plague doctors wore a beaked mask filled with sweet smells such as dried flowers, herbs and spices.  They believed the plague was spread by a noxious form of bad air and that their special fragrant blend would protect them.  

On a recent trip to Italy, the guys at Italian Barber were given "the recipe" which was supposedly used by these Plague doctors.  They can't confirm that it'll safeguard you from any future plagues but it sure smells divine.  

They have successfully recreated the Plague doctor's fragrance and now offer it in our Italian shaving soap and after shaving splash.

Shaving Soap Size: Hot filled to 125 ml

After Shaving Splash Size: 100 ml (3.4 fl.oz) glass bottle comes equipped with a convenient flow restrictor insert, enabling easy application of the perfect amount of Aftershave Splash each and every time.

Artisan Hand Made in Italy

i want to give this combo a better review - really. i love the aesthetic. aesthetic and packaging; presentation, to me, in some ways is just as important as the performance of the product. separately, the soap would get a 3 star and the aftershave would get a 4. in terms of performance of the soap, obviously it's there. it works and nicely. however, i like a scent. in the soap, there's just not much of one to speak of. you can just barely catch the hint of a whiff. in terms of scent strength, i'd give this a 1 or 2 at the most. i wish it was stronger. the aftershave sort of makes up for the soaps lack of scent, but again; it's simply not very strong. however, where the soap loses points in this respect, the aftershave sort of... benefits from it, if you can understand. it fits in with the overall motif of the set. the characteristics are clearly and by necessity floral. if you're familiar with the history of the plague doctor, you know why. but like the doctor, this scent is somehow mysterious. curious. you'll go what seems like a half hour and suddenly notice the scent, and just as suddenly it's gone again. it adds an element of fun to the ordeal that i quite enjoy. this is something like an esoteric soap. there's something hidden, here. something you have to work for to appreciate. if that's not your thing, and it's not everyone's, then move on to something else. to someone who wants to add a bit of curiosity to their routine; give this a try. it might be right up your alley.
