Declaration Grooming Hindsight shaving soap
Well, we made it through the decade that was 2020 2021. Much like the decade, this scent is complex by design. There's a lot going on and everyone is going to smell something different (except the smokiness, that's right up front and impossible to miss - if you don't like smoky scents you'll probably want to sit this one out).
Under the smoke is an entire world of scents that you won't get off the puck. It has to be lathered and explored to be understood.
As the most complex scent I've released in a very long time (potentially ever) it's almost certain to be somewhat divisive. This is one for the adventurers. I'm even providing scent notes!

Excellent slick soap base. Maybe a little less volume or density in the lather, but very good soapbase. But in the tub the scent was (overly) strong on leather-ish notes, during shaving it almost disappeared. First miss on the scent with DG (and I have a lot of DG).
