Denton Majik Shaving Soap - Kusafiri

Today we go back to Denton Majik Shaving Soaps and this time we are using Kusafiri. The name Kusafiri is Swahili "To Journey" and it has been a wonderful journey using the samples I was given.

The attractive label for this soap will make anyone curious. A majestic lion staring you down as if to say I'm the king here so make your move. A wonderful piece to show off your den with to be sure. 

The scent on this is a homage to Ralph Lauren's Safari for Men. Top notes are Lavender, Bergamot, Aldehydes, Coriander, Green Notes, Artemisia, Neroli, and Lemon; the middle notes are Tarragon, Carnation, and Cinnamon, Jasmine, Rose, and Cyclamen; base notes are Leather, Oakmoss, Sandalwood, Musk, Cedar, Patchouli and Amber. I would love to find out what the original Safari for men smells like because I might just like that one as well. 

Lathering was no problem but this soap comes with a recommendation from the artisan it is a fairly thirsty soap bowl lathering is recommended which of course is what I love to hear. So it did a bowl lather and emptied a brush full of water into the bowl and created an amazing amount. This provided great coverage which got right into the beard. The slickness and glide were more than adequate to allow me to go over trouble spots without the fear of irritation. The post-shave feel was wonderful my only retreat was I didn't have the splash but Lodge 49 splash did the trick just as well. 

So, I enjoyed this shaving soap as well as the Bright sample I tried a few months back both I recommend for a great shaving experience. This soap comes in a 5.5oz for $20.50 but they do also offer sample sizes as well. 

As always be kind to one another
