Phoenix and Beau Spitfire Shaving Soap

Phoenix and Beau Spitfire is a tallow shaving soap. Made from the olfactory memories of the designers Grandfather, who was a World War II veteran of North Africa and Italy, spitfire has the sweet crispness of juniper blended with the freshness of bergamot, woodiness of cedarwood and laid all three on to a base of warming leather and rich tobacco.  In terms of scent strength Spitfire is a moderately bold scent that we place in the middle of our olfactory strength range.

Phoenix and Beau

The shave soaps from Phoenix & Beau have been embraced by the shaving community as a great UK artisan product. Subtle but striking scents, this is a range of soaps that you simply must try!

Small batch and artisan handmade by Kerry & Sarah in Hitchin, England. As a traditional wet shaver, Kerry wanted to produce a shaving soap that had reliable and consistent performance; something that would let the safety razor glide over his face without irritating it and something that would leave the skin feeling silky smooth. They have successfully created a shaving soap formula that produces a rich, dense and voluminous lather that is a joy to use.

Officers Mess

It’s May 1944, you’ve had a successful flight back from France in your Spitfire, you’ve counted your squadron back in and now you’re reclining in your leather wing backed chair, nice drink and cigar as you unwind. That rich leather scent with the sweet smell of tobacco oozing with charisma and body. As always for P&B, thirsty for the first couple of shaves, but soon softens and that lather is incredible straight out of the pot! Straight on the face, thick and creamy lather worthy of the Spitfire name.

Smells of Old Ashtrays

I've been wet shaving for over 30 years and typically use products from the traditional Jermyn Street and Mayfair retailers. I bought this soap as I wanted to try something slightly different but still British. The texture is somewhere between cream and a hard soap and it lathers fairly easily with both badger and synthetic brushes. What lets it down for me is the fragrance. I've used tobacco and leather based products before and had expected something between the two, but I couldn't have been more surprised as it just smells of old ashtrays! This is a real disappointment as I was planning on buying the matching balm too. Fortunately the fragrance doesn't last long on the face and it's easily covered with cologne or skin food. As an aside, the service from Agentshave was very good and I look forward to using them again.
