Rust Belt reserve Premium - FOREST CITY FERN SHAVING SOAP
Introducing Forest City Fern, the first shaving products in our Rust Belt Reserve premium shaving line.

Rust Belt Reserve products feature luxurious ingredients blended with complex, expertly crafted, premium fragrances.

No one's quite sure how Cleveland acquired the "Forest City" nickname, but it's generally thought to have come from a history of efforts and encouragement by city officials to plant shade and fruit trees. Having spent a great deal of time in our area's outdoor spaces, we're certainly grateful for our forefathers' efforts. Hiking through the trails of our local park hunting for fossils in creek beds with our kids, we were inspired to recreate the scent experience in our Forest City Fern shaving soap and splash. Forest City Fern is our take on a traditional Fougere. Over a dozen fragrance ingredients blend seamlessly, featuring a well-rounded lavender top end that gives way to an earthy, woody base.

Performance wise, I've already reviewed the Rust Belt Reserve base by Shannon; it's still one of the best soap bases available, especially in the post shave "department". The scent - at least according to my nose - is a dirtier, earthier, sexier Brut. The drydown is just fantastic. I wish I had got the aftershave too, but I have a bottle of Brut around, so that will do for now.

Unique scent, smells like a wintergreen gum and pine. Would buy it again.

WOW!!!! Forest City Fern by Shannon's Soaps is a must have. FCF is the first soap in a new line of ultra luxury products by Shannon and has my vote for "Best Shaving Soap". The list of ingredients is incredible, everything you want, and the only soap I've seen that doesn't have water as an ingredient! The fragrance is under stated, complex and sophisticated. My wife loves it. The lather provides plenty of protection, is easy to make into a thick, luxurious, and very slick lather. I've gotten my easiest BBS shaves with this soap. After a great shave, the post shave is absolutely terrific. You feel like a new man - clean and refreshed. As you can see I love this soap, hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
