Review - Dr. Jon’s Shaving Soap Black Label

Review
Company: Dr. Jon’s Shaving Soap

Product: Black Label

I received a Dr. Jon’s Soap from Nathan Clark with a custom brush I ordered a few weeks back. (That story coming soon) and now had the chance to try Black Label. Not a big fan of tobacco scented soaps but I was eager to give this one a try.

 The 2oz travel size tin has a great looking label. Two crossing straight razors with a man (It might be Jon) in the middle dressed in top hat, round glasses and sporting great mustache.  The top has the popular elastic strip that wrap around the outer edge on the tin. You have to love the way Jon labels his products. They are without a doubt some of the most eye-catching graphics I’ve seen on artisan soaps they do have a way of capturing your attention. 



The scent is not your standard tobacco scent. This one has uniqueness about it not found in others. It’s a sweet smelling scent but it has a masculine side to it as well. The notes on this are tobacco, oak moss, lavender, strawberry, bergamot and violet. I do notices almost all of the notes but what comes thru for me most are oak Moss, Lavender, strawberry and tobacco in the order.  Scent strength is about a 3.5 to 4.  I need to point out that the soap is very soft almost cream like so loading your brush is should not be a problem so don’t push down on your brush too hard no need for that here.

If you ever tried Dr. Jon’s soaps before then you know that the performance is top notch the lather is amazing slickness and glide are present for the entire shave. Jon’s offering of the smaller 2oz size allows me to try all of his soaps for less than $35.00. Currently that’s 5 different soaps and you get more than enough shaves from each one. I’m on my 6 shave with the same 2oz tin and have plenty left for another 6 and beyond.

So I really did like Dr.Jon’s Black Label. It’s a soap that is unlike any other as scent goes. Very unique and the performance is excellent.
