Martin de Candre LIMITED EDITION Fougère Shaving Soap
Le Savon à raser en Edition Limitée Fougère - Limited Edition Fougere Shaving Soap by Martin de Candre of France. This premium, luxury, handmade soap has added cologne made from twelve essential oils. As soon as you swirl your shaving brush on the surface of this soap you know this is no ordinary shaving soap. The scent and the lather are stronger and richer than other brands and the lather seems to stay in the brush a lot longer than other soaps, you will also notice that the soap retains heat leading to a better shave.
The shaving lather is rich, creamy, protective and lubricating.
Expensive? Yes, unashamedly so, however, this soap should last the average wet shaver around 12 months daily shaving.

This is a Limited Edition Shaving Soap, Martin de Candre will stop making this soap during 2019.
The soap is made by a small team in Fontevraud l'Abbaye, rural France.

Martin de Candre Say:
In the past, many perfumes bore the name 'Fern' which, in the world of perfume, means a fresh cologne with a green and woody fragrance. Martin de Candre's Fern consists of a blend of 12 Essential Oils, that has made the reputation of our soap since its creation in 1974. A fragrance for everyone, a rare, delicate, cologne, exuding fresh scents and evoking sweet nostalgia ...

Executive Shaving Say:
My wife bought me this shaving soap for my Christmas in December 2018. So impressed was I with it I opened a dialogue up with Martin de Candre as I wanted to supply their soaps. Eventually, they agreed and now we can offer you this sensational soap online. I have several premium, artisan shaving soaps, Fitjar of Norway, Santa Maria Novella from Italy and Martin de Candre Fougere. All are sensationally good but the scent of Fougere makes it my all-time, number one shaving soap. Brian Mulreany, sales director The Executive Shaving Co. Ltd.

200g of superbly scented, luxury, handmade French shaving soap.
Comes in a recyclable PETG plastic jar with screw top lid.

The main advantages of the MdC shaving soap by Martin de Candre :

We have elaborated a unique hot process soap-making method which we have been using in our workshop for 40 years with perfect control over the quality process, using 100% natural essential oils (olive, coconut) and potash (Alkali).
A soap made with this process ensures excellent heat retention without adding any preservatives.
At the end of cooking, we add the finest essential oils to the warm paste which allows us to have scented soaps right to their core.
It takes weeks for the soap to dry and to rid all excess water and refine itself. In our day and age where everything goes fast, it may seem crazy...  but this is the only sure way to greatly enhance shaving soap lather and fragrance properties!
A luxury top quality product, manufactured by a French craftsman, ... and yet one of the cheapest as it lasts a good year going by your feedback and comments.
Finally, let's describe its lather qualities:

The lather thickens rapidly, with a few brush swirls and gives a satisfying close and clean shave that helps skin feel great and moisturised without razor burn. The lather is nice and rich, soft and creamy, extremely pleasant to the skin ... YOU know to talk about it in the best possible way!

I 'bloomed' my soap, this involved filling the container with hot water and putting the lid back on and leaving it for 10 minutes and then repeating this again. This process softens the surface of the soap making loading up your brush much easier. It also reduces stress on the brush which is an issue with badger hair brushes - not synthetic fibre brushes.
Some men swear by blooming, others are against it, it's your choice.

I have used this soap in rotation with Fitjar, Executive Shaving, Extra Cosmesi and Saponificio Varesino soaps and creams and Martin de Candre Fougere is my all-time favourite. The heady scent is pleasantly strong and pleasing while the lather, well frankly, this is as good as it gets.
