This shaving soap from favoured artisan maker Martin de Candre has a luxurious rich lather which will give you the ultimate smooth shave. The Fougere or Fern fragrance is a wonderful mix of lavender, oakmoss and coumarin which together are described as woody, sharp and slightly sweet and similar to the smell of newly mown hay. If you’re not sold then other fragrances said to fall into the fougère class include Paco Rabanne, Azzaro Pour Homme, Boss by Hugo Boss and Eternity for Men by Calvin Klein.
To use, Martin de Candre recommend first moistening the face with hot water, then wetting your shave brush thoroughly in warm water, being careful not to waterlog the brush by shaking off any excess. Using only a few circular strokes, as that’s all you will need, pass your brush over the soap to build up a lather. Spread the resulting foam on the face, again using circular movements. This will further develop the creamy foam and lift the facial hair away from the skin to ensure a smooth shave. When you’ve finished pass the jar under water to gently rinse away any left over foam and turn the jar upside down so the soap drips and dries thus making sure the soap lasts as long as possible. With careful use the manufacturer says a 200g jar could last a year so.
