The Asylum Royal Fougere Shave Soap arrived this afternoon and I could not be happier with it. It is a modern take on a British Classic. The scent is in the same vein as Trumper Wild Fern and Penhaligon's English Fern. We hired a professional perfumer to create a wonderful fougere that features musk, oak moss, basil, amber, woody notes and a whisper of patchouli.

This handcrafted tallow shaving soap is made in Chandler, Arizona exclusively for BullGoose Shaving Supplies. Formulated with tallow and Shea Butter, the soap explodes into a rich creamy lather that is extremely slick and protective. The superior post shave moisturizing properties will leave your face as soft as a baby's cheek.

We received the matching Royal Fougere aftershave last week so you can now layer the scent.

If this is even 80% as enjoyable as Gaelic Tweed (...and it should be), then I will be one happy shaver. I am expecting my delivery Monday with some other goodies, including the Asylum Vetiver Bourbon.

Matt, you've got some good stuff arriving on Monday.  The Asylum soaps are a great buy.  They combine the excellent Formula T tallow base with scents conceived of by Phil.  I like the Frankincense & Myrrh, and will be trying the Royal Fougere and Vetiver Bourbon.

Thanks Ricardo, really looking forward to this order. As always!
But even more so than normal, because the Formula T base is right up there with the best, Valobra, IMO.

That looks like a solid lineup for my first use of Royal Fougere, Phil!  Just wish I had that bowl.   Blush

Thank you Billy. I picked up the bowl on the BST about 8 years ago from Ron (RSP1202)

Wow!!!!
Just received the soap and I can say it's literally a cross between the two: English Fern and Wild Fern.
Enough said for now, end of story for now! Will be using it this evening Smile
Excellent work Phil and all involved!
