Lothur Floraphobia shaving soap
‘Florals for summer!’
Floraphobia started life with this quote from Jean Claude Ellena’s book - The Dairy of a Nose.
‘I like pleasures when they are shared, that is my definition of luxury. I transpose this ideal on to the perfumes I create, which are mostly meant to be shared by men and women. If I compose a ‘mens’ fragrance for a wide audience, I never fail to slip in some women’s ciphers, and vice versa for a so-called ‘women’s’ perfume. Fashions codes were invented to be transgressed, to be played on; so I don’t believe perfumes should be for women, for men, mixed or unisex. It is the people who wear them who give them their gender. In India, men have been wearing Yves Saint Laurent’s Opium, Guerlain’s Shalimar and Dior’s J’adore since they were launched. I avoid pigeonholing, putting things in boxes, I would rather give people the freedom to choose, to appropriate each of my creations for themselves.’

Directions of use: Prep your facial hair with warm water (shower is best). Load your shaving brush for 30 seconds or more, until the brushes bristles are covered in soap. Create a lather with your shaving brush directly onto the face or in a shaving bowl, adding water as needed (aiming for a PVA glue consistency). Shave as normal using your desired method. For external use only, if irritation occurs discontinue use.
Fool here. The base is confirmed awesome. It is indeed so easy to get the greatest lather. Fool proof. Not a big fan of this particular scent though.
It’s a very nice complex scent. Strong in the beginning but you get used to it the second shave.
The soap base is awesome. This lathers up so easy. A fool can get a great lather.
