Take your daily shave on The Beach!

When I first mentioned The Beach scent I had been working on to Joe it had been purely a joke. I'm not sure how many of you know this, but the guy's a real beach bum w/ a serious proclivity for all things scented coconut!

I expected to get a laugh out of him upon mentioning this but instead there was a long, dramatic pause, I even pulled the phone away from my ear to see if we had lost connection. Sometimes silence is the sound of the wheels turning, and turn they did...for about 20 seconds. Just when I was about to ask if he was breathing Joe joyously blurted out:

"The Beach! Yes we have to...for Kramer!"

I thought he was joking, he was not. I had no idea what Joe was going on about not being a huge Seinfeld nut like he is. So before I knew it we were collaborating on a new soap based on a fictional cologne...righteous!

How does one recreate the scent of the beach? There is no real way to formulate this out on paper but only through lot's of trial an error. Many batches of The Beach were made and "thrown back" before we settled on what final became the soap we just released. The scent profile of the beach is massive! It's not just one thing like salt or tanning lotion but a blend of ozone, sand, organic matter, an ice cream truck, Bo Derek, a cocktail, even the sounds of Sade's "Smooth Operator" blasting out of the stereo system of the cabana. This was much more than Synergy, this was Synesthesia...and it's all in there!

Luckily for me I too am a "would be" beach bum, I have spent the last 15 years surfing many beaches in the USA, South & Central America...so I am no stranger to this special effluvium that all beaches emit.

After one hellish winter in Massachusetts I didn't need much convincing, and so was born "The Beach"! Enjoy the latest RazoRock/PAA collaboration....Surf's Up!

Why not have a Mint Mojito while you're catching some fun in the sun?

My absolute favorite scent. All of the 3.0 soaps have great lathering and give a great shave. I give them all five stars. However the beach scent is my absolute favorite. It's great for the summer but I use it all year round. I hope they make more products using this scent!!! Keep up the good work!!

FANTASTIC soap. Lathers easy, great cushion. If you're looking for a "seasonal" soap for the summertime this is it. I'm a Florida native, and I can tell you that this scent is Gulf Coast summer all the way. Thanks for this product, Phoenix. I'm sure to order another soon.

I was a little skeptical about this scent, but it's a great performing soap, great scent! Glad I took the chance. You gotta get the a/s too.

My new alternating rotation is The Gondolier and The Beach, until I pick up another PAA soap for a 3rd scent in the rotation.

Great shaving soap! The scent is addictive! Living in south florida my entire life, I've spent numerous days at the beach. This scent is as close as it gets! The scent is mild and the soap lathers nicely for a comfortable shave. For sure, I'll be purchasing this one again! I would love a tonic in this scent!

Just got my order in yesterday. Bought this soap and the matching aftershave/cologne. Let me just tell you that, "THIS SOAP IS ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR IN EVERY ASPECT"! Perfect, thick, slick, cushion. Almost an effortless shave. Glides perfectly with no irritation. As for the scent... Get ready to be taken back to your childhood, sitting in the sand under an over-sized umbrella with the nice breeze wafting the smell of the salty ocean,various sunscreens, seaweed, the ice-cream cart, funnel cakes, and the woody smell of the board walk into your nose, filling your "senses" with relaxation and happiness. Paired with the aftershave, its a truly enjoyable and nostalgic shaving experience. Puts you in a good mood from the first time you open the container, and cant be described any better than true bliss when you experience shaving with it. Makes for the best start to your day, and it pays you back in constant compliments from the people around you wondering "what are you wearing, you smell amazing". I hope that you folks at Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements continue to make this wonderful intoxicating scent forever and ever Amen. Maybe add some bath bars and Shampoo/Conditioner to the line-up "just a suggestion". This is now my #1 go-to shaving soap!! Thank you and Italian Barber "Razorock" for creating this absolutely wonderful product, and bringing back the memories of good times past. Kudos to you, and I will strongly recommend your products to everyone I know in the wet-shaving community! hope to try some more of your products soon. Thank you!

Love the Beach, in fact I enjoy all of PAA shave soaps and after shaves. The Beach has become my weekend shave soap. It has a great scent and lather and slickness, an all around great performance. Reminds me of Kramer, Seinfeld, and being at the Beach.

I love this scent. It's awesome. I enjoyed it so much I got the matching aftershave. I live farily close to the beach and IMO, it's spot on. As much as I love the scent, I can't use this soap too often. It causes irritation to my sensitive skin. However, it does lather well. I would recommend this soap to anyone who loves the beach, and looking for a soap that is high quality. Cheers.

Besides the scent being great. The soap itself is great. I usually have to use a pre shave oil with TOBS. Pre de provence.. proraso pretty much all the usual soaps we all have.. This soap was the first one that I can use without the pre shave oil. Great thick lather and great protection. So good I just ordered the CAD and Cavendish.
