We currently have 15 in stock.

Asian Plum was originally made as a gift for testers of my tallow based, goats milk & lanolin soap.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.

Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Beef Tallow, Aqua, Goats Milk, Potassium Hydroxide, Kokum Butter, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Cocoa Butter, Sodium Hydroxide, Glycerin, Manteca, Aloe Juice, Avocado Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Apricot Kernal Seed Oil, Lanolin, Agave, Slippery Elm, Sodium Lactate, Xanthan Gum, Silk Amino Acid, Tussah Silk, Marshmallow Root

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 shit does this give an incredible feel afterward. I will be purchasing the full size tub in the near future.

This sweet scent blows me away each time, as well as the eel slick shave. Thank you
