Asian Plum was originally made as a gift for testers of my tallow based, goats milk & lanolin soap. Anthony Esposito had suggested that we come up with a plum type scent for the guys and mentioned one of his favorites, a European soap which is extremely difficult to find...truly unobtanium. I took this as a challenge and embarked on this journey to create a soap, reminiscent of this great mysterious shaving soap. Another friend and fellow VIP member sent a sample as a comparison. The rest is history! I added many of the same notes found in the original, however, I wanted to put my own spin on this great scent. Once comfortable that I had something that would be a good rendition of the original, I sent along to the group. The response was terrific, so I made it available for you as well. Asian Plum Shaving Soap will be presented in our new low profile jar with 4 oz of soap.

Notes: Plum, dried fruits, tobacco, tonka bean, coffee, vanilla and a touch of Plumeria.

Spring time in Japan

I LOVE how this soap smells. I get full on flash backs to walking thru the Ume plum trees groves in early spring and enjoying all of the sights and smells of the spring time. As for lather it gets the job done but it is nothing to rave about.

Great all around

This soap comes off as super sweet when smelling it from the tub. Once you get it on your brush it really mellows out and becomes much more balanced. I tried a sampling of many A&E scents and this one was the best all around for me inclusive of post shave feel. I've gone on to sample a few other brands and this soap still rises to the top for me.

I purchased a sample of this shaving soap and it maybe something to do with the specific ingredients of this soap but the lather was not great. The scent is unusual but for me not outstanding. From the jar, the scent is definitely fruity, IMO akin to wild strawberry. When I shave, I get a slight touch of vanilla coming through, settling down to the wild strawberry scent again Post shave.

I would like to add something about this base. It needs A LOT of water. If you feed the beast with plenty of it, the lather will be slick as ice.

This was my first experience with AE through a sample I ordered from here. Wasn’t completely into the scent at first but after a few minutes began to really enjoy it. It is a sweeter scent but not overly sweet. Super easy to lather and makes a lot of it. I can get more than 5 shaves from sample provided. Slickness is absurd and the real treat is the post shave feel. I wasn’t expecting anything and didn’t read any reviews prior to using but holy **** does this give an incredible feel afterward. I will be purchasing the full size tub in the near future.
