BullGoose Shaving has added an additional scent to the Asylum Shave Works Line. Old Virginia is a blend of Tobacco Absolute, Vanilla and Tonka Bean with a whisper of Oakmoss and Cedar.

The scent of the soap is mild but builds in intensity as you lather.

Phil you're on a roll with the Asylum soaps.  I'm enjoying Frankincense & Myrrh, and just ordered Royal Fougere and Old Virginia.

Does the tobacco note smell like loose cigarette tobacco (dry, earthy) or more like pipe tobacco (sweet)?

I guess more sweet. The tobacco absolute is an interesting scent...I actually get a dark chocolate scent along with a nicotine scent and what smells to me like a fine cigar. This scent is then blended with Vanilla, tonka, oakmoss and a touch of cedar.
