We are happy to announce that we have just received shipment of Arran Shave stone and soaps. Arran Shave Soaps are made in Scotland on the grounds of an old dairy farm for the historic Brodick Castle. The triple milled shave soaps are excellent with tons of cushion and glide and a refreshing scent. The bowls are simply stunning. Made from a stone resin, they look and feel like a stone you might find on the beach. Weighing in at 1.5 LBS, you will not want to drop this bowl on your toe.

Available in two scents.

Machrie

A crisp, clean mineral fresh fragrance, with notes of Lavandin and Origanum, blended with Ambergris heart, Mandarin, Myrrh, Clary sage and Patchouli.

Lochranza

A herbaceous blend combining the soft notes of Cedar and Vetiver, invigorated by the warm-spice of Patchouli, Bay and Anise.

I have had an Arran stone soap for a while.  
I enjoy it and haven’t dropped it on my toe...yet.
The performance is good and the scent is bold and pleasant.
Try it, you’ll like it.

I am definitely impressed with it. Up until two months ago, I was completely unfamiliar with the brand. It’s a hidden gem.

This one is definitely worth checking out.  I ordered the Lochranza (Patchouli and Anise).  One of the factors persuading me to try this soap is that it's triple milled.  It will yield more shaves and have a longer shelf life.

I think you will really like it Ricardo. It lathers easily and reminds me a lot of the new Floris shave soap with the rich and creamy lather.

I am considering the Lochranza also, it sounds fantastic. I think it would pair great with my PAA 1K. I have never used a triple milled shaving soap.

Sounds great. I brought home the Machrie and don't think you can go wrong with either scent. This soap is really easy to lather...especially for a triple milled soap.

They will be. I only ordered the soaps with bowls this time but will add refills with my next order.

I was going to ask that, but I'm assuming it may last a while and will be sometime before needing a refill.

I’m going to get my Machrie Arran rock out for tomorrow.
The only quirky thing, the rock always needs to be on the top of the stack of tubs!
If you have stacks...I got stacks!

That is definitely true. The rounded lid makes it unstackable.

I agree Toby... it is refreshingly different. The best part is that the soap itself is excellent.
