Gentlemans Nod Kensei shave soap


Kensei is the continuation of the Musashi saga. Kensei literally translated means “sword saint.” It is an honorary title afforded to a swordsman of legendary skill. Musashi is the swordsman most commonly referred to as Kensei 

Kensei opens with a beautifully unique citrus blast of Blood Orange, Yuzu, and Yellow Mandarin. It is light, juicy, tangy and undeniably uplifting. The sweet and crisp Nashi pear adds to this energizing and delectable opening.

The fresh open transforms with the rich complexity of Lapsang Suchong tea. The uniqueness of this tea cannot be overstated. The tea is smoke dried over pine wood creating an effect that adds a hint of wood smoke and resin to the depth of black tea. The floral combo of Neroli and Violet keep the fragrance light and fresh extending the lift from the citrus open.

An exotic mix of black pepper and saffron create a luxurious creamy, warm spiced effect that leads into a comforting woody finish.


Top: Blood Orange, Yuzu, Yellow Mandarin, Nashi Pear

Mid: Lapsang Souchong Tea, Neroli, Violet, Black Pepper

Dry: Saffron, Cedarwood, Fir Balsam, Amberwood, Vetiver, Cypriol

Amazing soap

An absolutely amazing soap, which has an outstanding scent. The soap itself is pretty soft and got lathered very well.
The scent starts with a combination of freshness and citrus fruits (Blood Orange, Yuzu, Yellow Mandarin) and the sweet nashi pear. After a while it changes to the very pleasant note of, I think it's the Lapsang Souchong Tea. I love it. In addition to that the soap gave me a nice slickness for the shave.
Overall for me the best soap l've used so far!
