Bay Rum, originally a specialized rum that was made on the island of Saint Thomas, became popular among locals and tourists for its great taste and its woody, sweet and spicy scent. Eventually, some genius was able to identify the leaf that gave it this unique smell, Myrcia acris. It then went on to become the quintessential cologne and aftershave scent that we all know and love today.

    Why pay tribute to T.E. Lawrence in the form of a shaving soap?! We’ll tell you why! T.E. Lawrence was the real-life Indiana Jones. He was a renowned Archeologist, a crack shot with his gun, spent more time in the desert than Indi, was known to be besties with his motorcycle, and was a fan favorite among the ladies – I mean, have you seen his jawline? He was also a man of great integrity – he turned down Knighthood from King George V, because he felt the British had left the Arab people out to dry after World War I (they helped the British defeat the Turks). Also, he was a man who always held a close shave, which is why we like to imagine that he might have smelled of something amazing as he trekked through the hot deserts of Egypt. Something warm and sweet, but also spicy. Something like our Arabian Nights Shaving Soap. Each round bar weighs approximately 4 ounces and is 3 inches in diameter. This soap produces a wonderful lather using your brush and shaving mug or bowl. Each bar is made with high-quality ingredients and processes using all natural Glycerin - no harsh chemicals to irritate the skin. All our soaps are made in small amounts using the finest in Botanicals- Essential and Fragrance Oils.
