Spiced Fougère Shave Soap
85 g / 3 oz
Discover our spiced interpretation of a classic masculine fragrance.
To create Spiced Fougère, we worked with Denatured: an open-access perfume lab here in Winnipeg, Canada. The owner Tom, a graduate of the prestigious Grasse Institute of Perfumery, generously offered his incredible expertise to help us develop an all-natural fougère - the fragrance family that evokes the imagined smell of ferns. We’ve had an amazing time working with him, and we think you’re really going to enjoy our creation. Check out Denatured Lab to see their many unique offerings.
Spiced Fougère began with the classic fougère triad: absolutes of tonka bean, oakmoss and lavender. Tonka bean, a legume from South America, brings a natural coumarin component – a complex smell of sweet hay and fresh grass. The addition of bergamot brings a clean fresh edge that is warmed by woodsy notes of Texas cedarwood and patchouli.
We embellished this classically fresh green fougère by uniting some of our favourite spices (cardamom, allspice, West Indies bay, and vanilla), and resins (frankincense, myrrh, and labdanum.)
Fresh and green greets warm and sweet, rendering a perfectly spiced fougère.

Tallow + Steel shave soaps are handmade using the highest quality organic ingredients, including tallow - which we render in-house from local, pasture-raised suet. Our shave soaps are easy to lather using all types of shaving brushes. Plenty of water is required when lathering to achieve optimal cushion and slickness - apply the lather to a wet face for best results.
