This is a newcomer in artisanal soap maker scenario.
The great idea of this is including saffron into soaping process.
Not just the fragrance, but all the dermatologic effects of this incredible plant.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saffron

At the moment there are four soaps.
Abbate Y La Mantia
• Crumiro ... remembering a classic italian cooky
• Laureato ... with a nice laurel note, but absolutely classy
• Vegano ... is a unique carrot and lattuce fragrance
• Krokos ... remember the bothanical name of saffron, is most concentrated and incredible

Being in ilRasoio forum togheter, asked Mr. Abbate to have the pleasure to try his revolutionary soaps.
He honored me to purchase samples NOT available on market.


I've not fronted the needs to repack all them four: Wink

Those sound like some very interesting and unique scents.  Not sure I'd go for the carrot/lettuce one but different nevertheless.

I'm using these soaps into my rotation, and they are quite amazing.

Need some job to lather its best, but result absolutely nice.

Some pics, always after three pass shave, of what can produce in L&H the remaining of 1g:

I think the maker has some collaboration with TFS doing the manufacturing.

Abbate family has the saffron factory.
Mr Folco joined TFS in last two years and half to find the way to add saffron into the matrix of the soap, not just add as final spice or color.
It's this the point, when I call It a revolutionary soap.
