The vegetal base of the English producer Wickham Soap Company is a winner.
A simple and effective formulation, with an intelligent ingredient list (INCI):
Potassium Stearate, Aqua, Sodium Cocoate, Sodium Cocoa Butterate, Sodium Palmate,
Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Sodium Avocadate, Parfum, White Kaolin, Allantoin, Glycerine.

Excellent from all points of view.
Even considering the average price.
Lower than the value it expresses.

Good mechanical characteristics.
Good conditioning characteristics.
Good packaging.

What is excellent is the fragrance.
I've tried several in recent years, and all of them are excellent.
This "Buddha Wood" however is remarkable!

The model is an exclusive of The Gentleman's Groom Room store in Scotland.
Already known for its line of soaps.

The olfactory pyramid is this.
Top Notes: Otto (attar) of Bulgarian Damask Rose
Heart Notes: Sandalwood, Amber, Ginger
Base Notes: Buddha Wood, Oud.

The fragrance is rich, enveloping, sweet but dry.
Caressing but masculine, it is absolutely intoxicating.
All thanks to the Oud, but above all to the Buddha Wood (Eremophila Mitchelli).
An unusual but well-orchestrated note, which fully resets the chord.

Today in my SOTD.
