Eigengrau Shaving Soap (Omnibus Base) (Seasonal)

36 reviews

Eigengrau is a seasonal scent for Winter and will be made through February 2022.
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 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.

Cold winter nights

Eigengrau is a scent of a very cold and dark place,you get tones of a frozen winter forest and the feeling of it. Really interesting.

Sintético y cefalia.

Ni siquiera pude usar el jabón, tiene dentro de sus componentes un elemento muy sintético, parecido al ámbar gris, eso que utilizan muchos perfumistas... Y ese mismo olor punsante lo tiene el B&M 42... Olor Qué hace saltar para atrás del DOLOR DE CABEZA... Muy desagradable. Saludos.

Good Soap and high quality as always.

Lathered very well. Scent was exactly as described and made for a relaxing experience. Not my favorite scent but one I will use often during winter months just behind Dickens.

scent a disappointment

Soap performance is one of the best one out there. But the scent is not fo me or my wife. it smell like dirt with rotten flowers. i could not even finish shaving with it. I hate leaving a negative review but I also never experience this with any other soap. I love my seville, dickens, and oceana. Again, so sorry, 3 starts due to the scent only

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
