Chiseled Face - Bay Rum - Shaving Soap
We've wanted to do a bay rum for years, but it took a while to get things the way we want.
This is a tropical bay rum - quite different than most bay rums on the market today - this one actually has a bit of a rum kick to it and is spiced up with ginger and lime to give it a lighter more tropical feel.
Contains the following notes:
Jamaican Rum - this accord is a blend of natural and artificial scent oils, and smells a lot like a traditional oak-aged spiced rum.
Bay leaves - not the ones from Mom's kitchen! This is 100% essential oils from the traditional west indie's bay leaf pimenta racemosa
Bergamot - Essential to a tropical bay rum scent, this gives a nice citrus kick that isn't too sweet. Bergamot is probably best known for giving earl grey tea it's distinctive flavour.
Lime - Gives a fresh kick to an otherwise somewhat dark scent
Clove - Every bay rum needs a bit of clove, though this one is understated and blends in rather than taking centre stage like clove will tend to if not reigned in.
Cinnamon - A bit of warm spice
Ginger - This kinda sets this apart from most bay rums. Initially, you get a nice strong hit of ginger which quickly mellows out to a more traditional dry down.
Black pepper - This grounds the scent nicely giving it a bunch more refinement.
Vanilla - for a nice mellow smoothness - it really ties things together.
4oz of tallow based soap in a sturdy recyclable plastic tub. Tubs are half full to allow for space to load your brush without making a mess.
Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Aloe Vera Juice, Beef Tallow, Coconut Oil, Castor Oil, Glycerin, Fragrance, Mango Butter, Avocado Oil, Silk Powder
Chiseled Face is the only shave soap I've used for years, and I love their products. Their Bay Rum is my favorite scent, and it's often commented on. All their soaps lather well, are slippery on my face, and give a comfortable shave with whatever I use each day: a straight razor, shavette, or safety razor. I recommend their sampler pack - you'll find a few you love and be hooked for life!
Smells great and lathers really well. I couldn’t wait to use up the last of my previous soap from another brand so I could begin to use this regularly.
I have collected many of the CF shaving soaps and never been disappointed. I have tried many other Bay Rum soaps so when I saw one by CF I had to try it. I got a sample first and couldn't wait to get the large container. The others all have a heavy underscent but the CF Bay Rum smells like something you'd like to eat---but that would be ridiculous so just shave with it.
Great as always, the scent was spot-on, loved it.
As with all the Chiseled Face shaving soaps I've tried, this one does an excellent job. There is only one thing wrong with this scent. It smells so good that I have to stop myself from eating it. It's that good.
