Desert Vetiver Shaving Soap by Saponificio Varesino is a Special Edition shaving soap scented with a Vetiver-inspired fragrance. Saponificio Varesino came up with the Desert Vetiver fragrance due to the added Desert Date oil in this range which gives this luxury shaving soap a moisturizing and firming effect.
The Desert Vetiver fragrance awakens your senses with top notes of pine, incense, grapefruit and bergamot, which fade slightly giving way to its spicy heart with hints of black pepper, oregano, rose and lavender, which in turn will transport you to some woody base notes of vegetal moss, precious woods, vetiver and patchouli.
Here's how Saponificio Varesino describes the scent:
A composition with warm and enveloping notes.
The blend of Elemi, Incense, Orange and Artemisia flare up in the flowery, peppery, spicy heart
A multifaceted sillage of Black Pepper, Juniper Berries, Oregano and Lavandin swarms towards an elegant woody background sublimated by the precious Vetiver, the fresh Cloves and the seductive notes of Amber for a fragrance with a virile and unforgettable character

I have used a number of soaps made by Saponificio Varesino and for the first week or so, I advise you to fill the container with warm water, leave for 5 minutes, by this time, the surface of the soap will have softened up making lathering easier. Once you have used the soap a few times the surface will be soft enough to work up a rich, creamy and protective lather with the minimum of effort.
A long-lasting, beautifully scented shaving soap. Another winner from Saponificio Varesino.
