SdM Tempete

Laurence and Mathieu of La Savonniere du Moulin visited me in California in early August 2015. One of the topics we discussed was a Special Edition Shaving Soap. They brought several sample scents to the shop and I decided upon Tempete which roughly translates to stormy sea.

What does Tempete smell like you ask? Damn...I hate those questions. It is very hard to describe but it is definitely French -subtle and complex at the same time. It has notes of Rosemary, Lavender and Cayenne Pepper that work like a symphony to conjure up images of the sea, the wind and fine paper. SdM does not use essential oils for their cosmetics as they explained too many people have sensitivities and essential oils can actually be dangerous in some situations. Instead, they use home-made aromatic extracts of plants and high grade perfumes from the Grasse region of France; both of which are extremely gently on the skin.

The Tempete shaving soap utilizes the 30% Donkey Milk formula and it comes in an ash wood bowl (sourced from ash trees in the region). The bowl has a luffa in the bottom as well as a hole in the bottom to make sure that the soap dries completely between uses. This will help ensure a long shelf life once opened.

Tempete is a Special Edition Shaving Soap and it is only available from Bullgoose Shaving Supplies.

I can't wait. I've never used a better shave soap, aftershave, bath soap, or lotion. Great products.
