Declaration Grooming/Chatillon Lux - Vide Poche

Today's Shave of the Day featured: Soap: Declaration Grooming/Chatillon Lux - Vide Poche (Limited Edition) Brush: Vintage Ever-Ready 300 NW w/ 24mm Maggard 2-band Finest Knot Razor: Charcoal Goods Lvl-1 DC w/ Stinger Handle Blade: Astra Superior Stainless (1) Post-shave: Chatillon Lux Vide Poche Declaration Grooming and Chatillon Lux have forged a collaboration unlike any other that we've seen in the community. Combining unique, elegant scents and joining them with a soap base that competes with just about any in the community. This Limited Edition release of an old classic, Vide Poche, sold out in just a few days. This newest offering is in the Icarus base, which for me, personally, exceeds its predecessor base of Bison tallow. I find this base to edge out Bison tallow alone in slickness and post-shave feel. Some may disagree but Icarus has become on of my favorite bases. Vide Poche contains scent notes of amber, orange, geranium, honeysuckle, lavender, and bergamot. To my nose, this starts out primarily on the floral side with the honeysuckle, geranium, lavender, and bergamot up front. This floral aspect is pleasantly rounded out with a subtle citrus hit of orange and amber. Absolutely wonderful scent. If you can get your hands on this, you won't regret it.

Declaration Grooming Bandwagon

This soap review features the 2017 artisan of the year, Declaration Grooming (https://www.declarationgrooming.com/). Declaration (formerly known as L&L Grooming and Declaration Brushworks) is well known for their range of shaving soap, aftershave care and hand tied premium badger knots and hand turned brush handles. The company has not rested at all, even through their move from Georgia to Michigan. Aside from purchasing direct, their software is also available through Maggard Razors (http://www.maggardrazors.com/). Bandwagon is Declaration’s nod to the classic and very common barbershop genre of scent. The scent is an interpretation of Declaration’s trips to the local barber with their grandfather. The scent is a musky, powdery accord that is supported by creamy sandalwood. The scent notes are listed as: Bergamot, Musk, Sandalwood, Lavender, Camphor, Coumarin, Tarragon and Anise. The scent for me, opens powdery and creamy before some muskiness comes into play. This is a masculine barbershop that is unique enough to buy, no matter how many barbershop scents you own. The scent strength is light to mid, by design actually. Scents with some similarity are: Wholly Kaw Man From Mayfair and Reef Point Soaps Command Presence. Declaration’s soap base is among the very best performing soap bases on the market. Some have trouble dialing in the lather because it simply loves to be drowned with water. The results when dialed in though stand in the rare air of greatness though. Excellence in all metrics. "Yogurty" dense cushion, hella slickness and residual slickness and spa like moisturizing post shave is what you can expect. With an ingredients like this (Stearic Acid, Water, Potassium Hydroxide, Avocado Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Bison Tallow, Mango Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Fragrance, Sodium Hydroxide, Lanolin, Bentonite Clay, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Fruit Extract, Salix Alba L. (White Willow) Bark Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid,) its no wonder. The Shavescore for this soap base comes in at 95. Similar soap bases in terms of performance are: Wholly Kaw (donkey milk) and Catie’s Bubbles (luxury soap).

Today's shave: I use a new soap from Declaration Grooming. "Contemplation" is one of three scents in the new Icarus soap base, along with the matching aftershave. I also use an Aeterna razor blade (Sweden) for the first time. *** Kit *** * Declaration Grooming "Contemplation" shave soap and aftershave * Fatip Testina Gentile, Aeterna blade * Semogue Owners Club boar brush * Declaration Grooming "Contemplation" aftershave *** Intro / Outro *** Intro: "Spygame" by Parov Stelar Outro: "Booty Swing" by Parov Stelar

​This soap review features the 2016 artisan rookie of the year, L&L Grooming (https://www.landlgrooming.com/) and killer post shave master, Chatillon Lux (https://chatillonlux.com/). Even with the honors of being the best new artisan on the scene in 2016, Scott, from L&L Grooming continued his assault on wet shaver’s wallets by opening Declaration Brushworks (https://www.declarationbrushworks.com/), the premiere U.S. based artisan brush maker who hand ties every knot. L&L Grooming soaps are also available at Maggard Razors. Chatillon Lux is one of, if not the top aftershave artisan in the wet shaving world. Their collaborations are always successful and highly sought after.

Bon Vivant is a warm and spicy blend with a crack of sharp citrus. The scent notes feature caramel, birch tar, black pepper, maple syrup, vanilla, patchouli, neroli, petitgrain, yuzu citrus, ginger, anise, juniper berry, white grapefruit, wormwood and coriander. What does all this boil down to? For me it opens with herbaceous citrus and some black pepper before the sweetness of the maple syrup and caramel enter the fold. At its base, it fades back to earthy where the patchouli, juniper berry and petitgrain present themselves. Scent is mid-strong both off the container and through the shave. Similar scents on the market include; ​Mickey Lee Soapworks Unforgiven or Phoenix & Beau Sanskrit.

L&L Grooming’s Bison tallow soap base is among the very best performing soap bases on the market. Some have trouble dialing in the lather because it simply loves to be drowned with water. The results when dialed in though stand in the rare air of greatness though. Above average in all metrics. "Yogurty" dense cushion, hella slickness and residual slickness and spa like moisturizing post shave is what you can expect. With an ingredients like this (Stearic Acid, Water, Potassium Hydroxide, Avocado Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Bison Tallow, Mango Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Fragrance, Sodium Hydroxide, Lanolin, Bentonite Clay, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Fruit Extract, Salix Alba L. (White Willow) Bark Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid,) its no wonder.
