It is always darkest just before the day dawneth – Thomas Fuller.

Scent to inspire hope under adverse circumstances. “Remember,” they say, “that the darkest hour of all is the hour before day.”

Cuero Oscuro or Dark Leather – A dark and very masculine scent for Fall and Winter. This scent is not floral, fruity or powdery. Leathery and smoky. A radical departure from our other scents. In developing this scent, we saw a fork in the road and we took it. Off the beaten path. Off to an adventure that took us to unexplored olfactory journey.

A masterful blend of leather, vetiver, cedarwood, tobacco, patchouli, oakmoss and coffee to top it off. Think of rawhide leather scent or boots.

Warning: Discontinue use if there is a reaction or if irritation occurs.

Description: Made with high quality ingredients including Donkey Milk, Castor Oil, Kokum Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Shea Butter for added post shave benefits. Vegan does not contain Donkey Milk. Vegan includes Soybean Glycerides and Shea Butter Unsaponifiables with Kokum Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Shea Butter. Hops Extract is incorporated into the formulation as a soothing natural extract for relief of skin inflammation and skin redness.

Result: Produces a cushiony and protective lather with glide and consistency. Provides glide and cushion for more than one pass – With the Grain (WTG), Across the Grain (XTG) and Against the Grain (ATG). Works well with or without a pre-shave preparation.

No way, terrible scent

Got a sample of this and it smelled like dry erase/ permanent marker after opening. No way in **** I was going to lather it. Not sure what they were thinking releasing a something like this.

Not for me

The scent was just sharp and reminded me of solvents above anything else, more so than leather. The skin feeling during the shave was unpleasant for me as well, stinging. Post shave feeling was ok. Fortunately, I just had a sample, but this will not be a buy for me.

I get the horseradish tickle too.

Very harsh raw animalic leather. Very polarizing scent. It's a little bit too strong off the puck and it only gets weirder on the face. The main note I smell is acetone-like. It has a similar effect to sniffing a jar of horseradish. The base is fine.


Customer review

I was pretty disappointed with the sample I bought. On the positive side, the soap is very slick and my face felt very soft after. Unfortunately each of my three shaves left me feeling nicked and scraped. Using the same blade (Astra SP) and razor (Razorock Mamba) on the days before and after this soap, I had great, comfortable shaves with Zingari explorer and Declaration GLS. The Cuero either irritated my skin or just didn’t give much cushion. More disappointing (and subjective) was the scent. I’ve tried a couple of leather soaps that have a sharpness that I just can’t abide. It’s reminiscent of horseradish in cocktail sauce, and it overwhelms the good characteristics of the scent. This one’s not for me, sorry.
