Martin de Candre Fougère Shaving Soap 200g

Saponification made with heat action, in the traditional way in Martin de Candre atelier, with 100% vegetal and potash oils. Thanks to its 40 years of experience, they guarantee a perfected process. This process allows excellent keeping of the soap without needing any conservatives. A luxurious, efficient and long-lasting product.

Its soft and delicate fragrance known as Fougère, is a cologne made from 12 essential oils. Traditionally, fougère designed any fresh perfume with a green and wooden note. Martin de Candre has created its own version of the perfume since 1974. It also contains a wide variety of beneficial properties: hydrates, calms and soothes the skin.

It is suitable for any skin type. It generates a rich lather with a small quantity. The Fougère shaving soap is presented in a modern and elegant crystal bowl of 200g with a screw on lid.

* Some advice from Martin de Candre on how to wet shave :

- Thoroughly wash your face with warm water for a couple of minutes.

- Always rinse your shaving brush well under warm water after each use and gently flick out the excess water. Too much water and the lather will become runny and will dry out too quickly when applied to face.
- Brush the shaving soap in a circular, whisking motion with the shaving brush until a rich lather forms. Do not press down on the bristles, as this may damage the brush - simply move in quick circular motions.

- Now use the brush to apply the lather to your beard in small, gentle, circular motions or in gentle painting motions.

Experiment until you produce a good lather.

- When finished quickly rinse the shaving soap bowl-like container under cold water to remove excess foam. Invert bowl so as to let soap drain and dry. Soap dries best when bowl is left open.

A good shaving soap used along with a shaving brush provides an extremely close shave making you feel clean and comfortable.

Received my sample of Fougere this morning. I wasn't sure if I'd like the scent or not since I'd read it has lavender (something I'm highly sensitive to) but it must be a very small amount because I didn't have a bad reaction and definitely couldn't smell it. What I did smell was sort of a non-descipt, grassy, "green" scent that I thought was quite nice. There was none of the damp, decaying vegetation scent that I've smelled in other brands of soaps - definitely a plus in my mind. Performance was typical MdC quality: plenty of rich lather with ample cushion and glide. Is it the greatest soap ever made? No, not really but it IS very nice, has a very nice scent profile and, from every review I've ever read, it lasts for a very long time making it more reasonably priced that it seems at first glance. I finished my shave with Fine's Fresh Vetiver AS splash and, while it's not a match, it complements it nicely. I've read B & M's Reserve Fern AS is closer to matching, I'll try that when I order my full size jar of Fougere. This and Agrumes are my favorite MdC scents and are, to me, well worth investing in.

Wow. Not only the best smelling fougère out there, but also the best performing vegan soap I’ve ever tried. You won’t be disappointed. And the samples last a very long time as well.

Customer review

There are other artisans that perform as well/better, but this scent is the GOAT. If I was forced to sell all my soaps and only keep one, it'd be this one.

Customer review

No better than B&M Glissant or Wholly Kaw Donkey / Bufala.
