I found this at Royal Shave:

Schmiere Abschaum Shaving Soap provides a little slippery scum (Abschaum is German For Scum) to coat your face and give the prefect, genuine shave. The legend is this soap is developed from a recipe found by a wandering hobo under a dusty sign in an old barbershop. Passed around and tested by the dregs of society it finally made it into the hands of the Raven's at Schmiere and is now being offered to the greater population for your shaving pleasure.

Well, I guess if it's good enough for the dregs of society it's good enough for me. Does your face cry out for a coating of scum in the morning?

I would simply assume it's all apart of the company's fashion.

Of course, but it's a clever marketing trick with a unique story. Much better than saying perhaps, "We just mixed in a bunch of essential oils randomly until this smelled pretty good."

But then again, wouldn't you expect a hobo to do that, too? Tongue

What do they say... Any publicity is good publicity?

The soap has excellent shaving properties, except it smells like a hobo armpit mixed with the hair of the dog.Tongue

That is some funny copy. Minus the first sentence which I don't get.

Interesting... I saw the "What's Your Signature Scent" thread earlier, and that's exactly what I was going to post for my signature scent. Biggrin
