A fond farewell to Mickey Lee Soapworks

leave a comment »

I was saddened to learn yesterday that Mickey Lee Soapworks will shortly close its online doors. The proprietor, a career Navy man, has been promoted (and congratulations to him) and that involves first a relocation and then more time required on the job. As a result, Mickey Lee Soapworks will be shuttered. This is the time—the last time—to load up on his soaps, and I highly recommend that your order at least one tub of The Drunken Goat, a perfectly wonderful shaving soap with an unusual (and unusually good) fragrance: “A deep rich aroma, often described as a Stout infused cookie. The Drunken Goat captures notes of chocolate, oats, molasses and chestnut.”

I see that it’s out of stock at the link, so check around with vendors. Grab it while you can.

It made a great lather this morning with my Edwin Jagger synthetic brush. And then three smooth passes with Fine’s Marvel razor head on a UFO handle left my face perfectly smooth for a good splash of The Drunken Goat aftershave.

I’m sad to see him go, but I’m happy for his success.
