Barbershop is a premixed blend. I believe that's the one we use.  It was one of the first scents we offered years ago, before we started blending our own.  The scents mentioned above (Fern and Etherea) are blended in-house by Shannon.

Gotcha. Thanks for the information, I appreciate it! That new formula you're using for Etherea looks great, I can't wait to try it.

You will love the Etherea!  Just used it again this morning and it is fantastic .. since using it the first time i've had a hard time reaching for any of my other soaps. 10/10 on all aspects IMO

I have the Forest City Fern shaving soap and aftershave set that I picked up a while back.  It wasn't my first Shannon's soap.  I have several others, too.  Tell Shannon that she hit one out of the park for me with this one!  This is an excellent fougere scent!  The performance is excellent as always, but WOW, the scent!  The scent strength seems to be up a notch(or two) on this one compared to previous purchases.

Thanks, Rob. I'll tell her. The objective was to do what you described - kick things up a notch. I think Etherea is similar in that respect - more refined and stronger. We plan on doing more scents like these in the future.

It is AWESOME!!!


Etherea draws you in with a bright citrus-cologne top end that is finished off by an enticing hint of warm amber, delicate florals and earthy sandalwood.
  It also features a new premium formula, with goat's milk, mallow extract, sea buckthorn, and meadowfoam seed oil, on top of the tallow, lanolin, shea butter, cocoa butter and kokum butter

I'll add that I've been told that Etherea is reminiscent of AdP, which is not surprising. A classic cologne sort of fragrance seemed  a natural match for Timeless (as it is "timeless"), so that's where we started.  We had developed this awesome amber that we just HAD to use, and when Shannon combined it with the citrus cologne she made, the result was just awesome. A few other things sprinkled in rounded it out.

Is cinnamon in the mix? I get a slight warming sensation during the shave. It’s not really unpleasant & certainly doesn’t stop me from using it but I am curious as to what may be causing that.

Ingredients: Saponified (with potassium and sodium hydroxides) oils/butters of tallow, kokum, avocado, cocoa, shea, stearic acid, coconut; glycerin, lanolin, coconut oil, goat milk, mallow extract, buckthorn extract, meadowfoam seed oil, vitamin E, fragrance

Maybe the fragrances or maybe the lanolin? I know some have that effect from using soaps with lanolin

No cinnamon, or any other common irritants that I'm aware of. Lanolin is a possibility, but I've read lanolin sensitivity is rare.

Thanks for the feedback folks. I’m not usually sensitive to lanolin. That’s weird.
At least I know there’s no cinnamon. I usually have trouble w soaps that have cinnamon or almond fragrance.
Either way, the sensation is mild enough that I don’t let it interfere with my use. Etherea has a great, almost intoxicating scent & the soap base is fantastic - warming effect is just a bonus!!!

Just received mine. Bummed that I shaved already this morning!

Smells slightly like Lavanville, but not as vanilla-y, which I’m happy about. Warm, sweeter notes..

Test lathered and can already see its slickness and protection possibility.

Can wait to shave on Monday!!!

Holy cow... Your drunk ordering paid off!  Perhaps you should do other things while drinking, like trading stocks. Smile

This is why we also sell bath and body products... So you can order "distractions" for your significant other.

@LuvWetShavin I'm curious, what else would you consider to be on your top shelf? I too have to deal with the hard Ohio water, so Shannon's Soaps have sparked my interest.
