  • Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements Otra Shaving Soap

    Description by Douglas Smythe:

    Otra is built on a fougere base that I constructed from the ground up, note for note and drop by drop. I could have just stopped there but I chose to go further and build on top of this very green foundation, imagining it to be the mossy green wrappings around the riverbed. Next comes the sandalwood and rosewood, scents I imagine the trees that populate the forest to be emitting. I sprinkled the forest bed with white clover and watched it shoot to life, full & four leafed! Then the river itself, reeds and water plants were created with the addition of white sage hydrosol, rose water, and organic seaweed extract, not overpowering but in the background, you wouldn't notice it sitting on the banks but you would if it was absent. Lastly our star player, Centaurea Cyanus. 

    The stage having been set, I added the corn flower...would it work or was it another let down? Dear gods did it work! There was something very familiar about this scent, a definite family resemblance with Al Fin. This could be attributed to the light motif running through both, White Clover...but I prefer to think it magic. Judge for yourself.

    I find Otra to be the perfect scent on a hot summer night, very sensual and stimulating...yet puts me at peace. I also find Otra Shaving Soap to compliment Al Fin Aftershave wonderfully! I am very excited to finally offer a soap that works "genetically" with Al Fin...maybe I can rest now? Nah....

    We took the time developing this special soap to perform great and produce a thick rich lather that will make your shave a true pleasure...the rest is up to you.  Enjoy this very special, long lasting scented soap puck! We thank you for giving us a shot and would love to hear what you think. Happy Shaving!
