Ariana and Evans Artisan Shaving Soap Samples

4 reviews

Ariana & Evans is a new kind of luxury brand for traditional wet shavers and lovers of fine fragrances. A&E offers unparalleled performance, superb scents and terrific value. The people behind The Shaving Shop & The Club have once again challenged the status quo, while blurring boundaries between traditional wet shaving and high-end niche type fragrances.
We have no interest in playing it safe at A&E. Rather, our goal is to push the envelope, create new boundaries and bring you products that are uniquely different, edgy and without compromise.

In order to use the sample you need to remove it from the jar that it comes in and press it into the bottom of a bowl. You can then take your brush and load on top of the soap for 30-60 seconds. Enjoy!

Each container is hand packed by one of the Maggard Razors team from bulk containers. Each sample is enough for approximately 5 shaves!

The 1/4oz jars will be filled to the bottom of the threads.

Better than DG, BM, AND NO

These soaps all smell amazing. Vanille de Tobac is like crack. The Kaizen base is an incredible performer. You can build a controlled lather that can get nice and slick without breaking easily and it doesn't dry out on my face. The soaps are hard and are easy for me to scoop out and press into the bottom on my bowl. I have tried Vanille de Tobac, St. Barts, SoCal Hipster, Asian Plum, and Kaizen. All are amazing, but Vanille de Tobac and Socal Hipster are absolute must-try's. VdT is like a vanilla and nutmeg scent and Socal Hipster is a strongly zesty and fresh pineapple/banana. A&E is the superior brand for scents and performance no question.

I'm not sure that I like the scent of the Asian Plum, but it is an interesting scent and plenty strong. I like that Maggard goes through the extra effort to print little stickers to make the mini jars look exactly like the full size jars. The lather quality is excellent. So far, it feels good on my skin. It costs about double priced by volume for the sample sizes, which seems like a good value to me.


Customer review

Had my first shave with my sample of Asian Plum a few minutes ago and all I can say is... WOW! I'm generally not a fan of soft, sticky, waxy, Italian style soaps (I very much prefer triple or quad milled French soaps) for a number of reasons but once in a great while, I come across one that offers outstanding performance. A & E's Kaizen base is the very best of those I've tried. Just a great lather with plenty of slickness, cushion and glide with a great post shave resulting in a smooth, hydrated, well nourished, face feel. Then there's the scent: it's a wonderfully fresh, Springtime aroma: not too much citrus or too floral but a perfect balance of both, with just enough darkness from the coffee and tobacco notes to keep it grounded and balanced. As much as I prefer my hard French soaps, the very first thing I did after finishing my shave was jump back on Maggard's site and order a full size tub of the soap with the matching AS/skin food. I'm currently on the waiting list for a few samples of A & E's other scents as well. Asian Plum seems to be my gateway to yet another shaving soap addiction.

WOW! Best soaps ever! Kaizen base is incredible. It's so dense. St. Barts, SoCal Hipster, and Asian Plum are must trys. A&E makes the greatest soap ever, and Maggard Razors has some of the best service out there.
