Eigengrau Shaving Soap

In 2003, the House of Malle released one of its strangest, most ethereal creations: L'Eau d'Hiver, the smell of sunlight on snow. Characterized by perfumer Jean-Claude  Ellena's artful use of powdery heliotrope and iris and accented by white musks, honey, and flowers, it was heralded at the time as one of the  most artistically elegant creations of the time.

In the years since, no one else seems to have attempted any variations on the idea. L'Eau d'Hiver has stood alone as the most pure expression of the smell of Winter ever devised, and its bright, chipper nature and refined French pedigree tend to give the wearer an impression of sunlit ski slopes and thick woolen sweaters.

But that was then. And there are places in the world where Winter is a decidedly less cheerful affair.

Eigengrau is meant to be the inverse of L'Eau d'Hiver, the smell of moonlight  on snow. The very essence of the desolate elegance of a frigid  mountainside, framed by pristine snow and forbidding pines, so isolated  that you feel as though you stand at the edge of the world. Notes of heliotrope and iris bring forth the smell of desiccated powder, underlaid with the smell of frigid air and primeval accents of lichen, moss, vetiver, and fir needle. A vivid rendering of one of the most  starkly bewitching sights that the North has to offer, Eigengrau is a reminder that in the dark and the bleak may be found some of the most enrapturing beauty of all.

Net wt. 4 oz.

Wet your shaving brush well, then swirl it around the jar for roughly thirty seconds or until a rich, creamy lather is formed. Continue building the lather by adding water and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.

I love the smell, wife hates it

Wife told me to wash it off because I smelled like dirt. Personally I think the scent is very unique and maybe an aquired taste. Performance is great as always and I really like the balms. I hope Will comes out with matching balms for everything. -1 stars for the wife hating it with a passion

Amazing crisp and earthy scent with green notes and a touch of floral.

Whoa! What an amazing scent! I hope this is a seasonal and not a limited release. The scent is fresh; a little bit floral (white floral); crisp (from the cold air accord); and green and earthy (from the lichen and fir notes.) This scent was love at first scent. Just well done all around. The soap itself is excellent. Never had any problems with Excelsior base. Great slick and creamy lather.

Above average from B&M

I broke a shave soap purchase sabbatical to buy this one and glad I'm did. The performance is on par with other B&M soaps - nice glide, good face feel, easy to lather. I almost wonder if there's just a touch of methanol to it - "cold air" I think is listed as one of the ingredients and my face does feel a slight, pleasant cooling effect with this soap. The scent I love - it almost reminds me of a winter version of Petrichor, another B&M soap that's on my top five list. Eigengrau to me smells like a winter fougere, a cool floral scent with a sharp top note that keeps it masculine. I think that floral note throws some people, but I think it's absolutely well done here - it smells like a frozen bouquet to me, if that makes any sense.

Love this scent!

The scent is intriguing, and has quickly become one of my favorites. The shave experience is predictably awesome, as usual with B&M!

Great soap!

Super lathering and slickness with a fragrant masculine scent! It’s a staple of my rotation.
