5 of the best artisan shaving soaps for Spring
As traditional wet shavers we love a seasonal shaving soap! Have you ever wondered why sometimes you prefer a certain shaving soap at different times of the year? Well, your sense of smell can be more acute during Spring as there is more moisture in the air.
Spring can start at different times of the year. The Meteorological Spring is the months of March, April and May. This year the astronomical dates for Spring are Sunday 20th March 2022 - Tuesday 21st June 2022. The weather starts to become warmer and leaves, plants and flowers begin to grow.
Time to put away the smokey, earthy scents and welcome in fresh, oceanic, floral and fruity scents into your shaving rotation. Though many springtime scents are familiar, we have picked these artisan shaving soaps that feel 'Spring' to us at Agent Shave!
