Cairo Shave Soap
85 g / 3 oz
Enter a world where modern and ancient are entwined with this intricate scent from faraway lands.
Feel the vivid magenta hues of the desert moonlight. A skyline embellished with ancient pyramids: minders of the sarcophagus and relics of archaic mummies, gazing over the vibrant spirit of the city of Cairo.
Real Egyptian jasmine and neroli concoct a fresh floral aroma, revitalizing antiquity as the zest of bitter orange illuminates the blare of the bustling streets of the age-old city. The deep zing of the Egyptian citrus is sedated by the softness of warm benzoin to accomplish a striking blend between serenity and intensity: a re-embodiment of the city and its mythical history.
Cairo is warmed by hints of resinous notes from frankincense and myrrh, entrancing you back to the roots of the pharaohs who ruled many years ago, subdued to perfection by the herbaceous touch of Egyptian geranium, and then merging the past with the modern green freshness of violet leaf.
Engrave enchanting hieroglyphics into the horizon adorned with high-rises with this powerful citrus-floral scent.
