Stirling Soap Co. Ben Franklin Shaving Soap, 5.8oz

3 reviews
We currently have 6 in stock.

Made with Benzoin, Frankincense, Clove, and Nutmeg essential oils. This soap smells like an older gentleman’s pantaloons at the end of a hot July day in Philadelphia, drafting important documents with no air conditioner. It’s actually a very unique scent that reminded a few of my testers of a root beer float. An instant favorite. (Essential Oil)

NOTE: The description is tongue-in-cheek. It smells like a wonderful blend of Frankincense, Benzoin, Nutmeg, and Clove. It doesn't actually smell like sweaty old man pants. As of 3 March 2015, we have been averaging about 2-3 inquiries per week as to why we would make a soap that smells like an older gentleman's trousers....

Ingredients: Beef Tallow, Stearic Acid, Distilled Water, Castor Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Vegetable Glycerin, Essential Oil, Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Coconut Milk, Lanolin, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Lactate

From google translate: I wanted a soap for the winter, with a slightly more powerful smell than the usual citrus. Being sure by the criticism of the quality of soap that is Stirling, it was not of the aroma. I loved, very spicy, smell of old pantry. I do not know if for everyone, but for me. Quería un jabón para el invierno, de olor algo más potente que los habituales cítricos. Estando seguro por las críticas de la calidad de jabón que es Stirling, no lo estaba del aroma. Me ha encantado, muy especiado, olor a despensa antigua. No sé si para todos, pero sí para mí.

I love the scent of Ben Franklin but think the soap might have been more aptly named "New England Antique Store." It's warm with an old-woody/spicy top note and a mid note that lands where antique varnish meets root beer (somehow). Like other Sterling soaps, the various notes really light up beautifully when they are in a warm lather and smell significantly different than the way they do when you sniff the cold soap in the container.

This was my first Stirling soap and wow was I blown away. It most certainly does not smell like gamey pantaloons but it does smell like a root beer float except deeper. Love that Stirling lather. Post shave November s great
