Murphy & McNeil
Murphy & McNeil Gael Laoch White shave soap
@johp3r, John Perry, & @xicano_design, Rafa in collaboration with Bill Graham of Murphy and McNeil present to you the Gael Laoch release.
For those that follow John and Rafa you've seen the work, love for life, and love for this shaving hobby. It's a mutual respect from two guys who are similar yet so different. Gael Laoch release is a follow up to BDLM, Barbershop De Los Muertos, which was a small release done last year that was very well received and had many people wishing they got in on it. When the time came to plan another release we had this scent on our mind and knew exactly the artisan to do it. The fact that everything ties together so well is no accident either.
Murphy and McNeil, with their affinity for Irish/Scottish history and symbolism, has been producing arguably one of the top tier soaps for a little while now. This made it more than easy to ask Bill for a collaboration on this set.
The Norse Gaels were a people of mixed Gaelic and Norse ancestry and culture. They emerged in the Viking Age, when Vikings who settled in Ireland and in Scotland adopted Gaelic culture and intermarried with Gaels. The Norse Gaels dominated much of the Irish Sea and Scottish Sea regions from the 9th to 12th century.
Gael Laoch is a set in tribute to those who get up each day and conquer. For some it is those that serve and protect us and our way of life. It is also those that show up daily and work hard in their day to day life. They are your friends, family, coworkers, and strangers.
The scent on this set is inspired by Creed Viking and is one that will evoke these feelings in us all.
