Breaking News: We have reached agreement with Saponificio Varesino to bring back Asylum Colonia Shaving Soap in the newest formulation. We have also reached agreement for them to make a Colonia aftershave balm for us that we will offer in generous 150ml aluminum bottles.


We do not yet have an ETA but hope to have the shipment sometime this fall.

The 4.1 was terrific, but the 4.3 is outstanding.

I have confidence that the performance will be more appropriate for my skin. I loved the scent of Colonia and found the soap to work well but the lather was a bit different (maybe favoring slickness over cushion and density). All the new 4.3 soaps have been great so you can expect an order from me once they land. And seeing we can buy the matching aftershave balm now is even more awesome!  Biggrin  Thanks for bringing it back Phil.

Phil, I used Asylum Colonia this morning and I was just about to shoot you a message to ask if there was anything similar to this soap because my can is almost done. Instead I checked the vendor section and saw this thread. This is great news and I'll be checking your website daily.

Phil, I am very much excited for this incoming pair of products. I want to thank you for being the first North American distributor for the brand. Looking forward to trying the updated formula with the Colonia active ingredients. It is promising and plan to order when it becomes available. Cheers!

I'm kind of overstocked on SV soaps right now, but I do love that scent, and that balm has my wallet's attention for sure.

I think their balm is some of the best in the business and this one will be awesome I'm quite certain of it. 
Thanks PH for finding the sources of SV and passing them on to the USofA for all the wet shavers.

About the time that the soaps and aftershaves are available, I should have another surprise ready for you. For now though...my lips are sealed. Cool
