I love this slant — and Chiseled Face’s Sherlock is a fine soap and aftershave

with 2 comments

This morning Sherlock‘s fragrance brought to mind another Chiseled Face product: Summer Storm. Both are excellent soaps, and my Yaqi “soft cashmere” shaving brush easily made an excellent lather. (Yaqi offers a great variety of good brushes at modest prices. Note that the page at the link is 1 of 3.)

iKon’s stainless-steel slant is remarkably good, here seen plain but now available only with a B1 coating, though seemingly always out of stock. I’m so glad I got one when they were available. Three easy passes left my face remarkably smooth.

A splash of Sherlock and the day begins.

  1. Michael, Chiseled Face Sherlock always smells like Spinach to me. What is your perception of the aroma?

  2. It seems to have a hint of the petrichor that is noticeable in Summer Storm, but I otherwise get a bit of smoke — perhaps the image pushes me that way. His description, which I didn’t notice before, is “warm tobacco based scent blended with toasted caramel, black pepper, moist dirt [there’s the petrichor – LG], and finished with a touch of leather, moss, mandarin, honey and rose.”
