Cologne Russe Shaving Soap (Excelsior Base)

79 reviews

Based on one of the oldest forms of perfume, Cologne Russe is a throwback to a scent created by the House of Guerlain for the Russian royal family and discontinued in the early twentieth century.

We blend lemon, bergamot, petitgrain, and herbs with violet, rose, bay, and amber to produce a rich, beautifully fresh scent derived from the colognes of old. The scent is distinctly warmer than most other cologne-type fragrances, owing largely to its inclusion of castoreum, benzoin, and vanilla. Clean and elegant without the aloofness of some other scents, Cologne Russe is the perfect way to brighten your morning.

Net wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA

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 (lots and LOTS of it) and swirling your brush either on your face or in a lathering bowl. Shave, rinse, and spend your day feeling great.

Time to get a Mink Coat!!

I had no expectations on the scent of this soap. I knew the slickness and quality of the soap was going to be exceptional but the scent - who knew? Scent is so subjective. I cup my hands against my nose - someone mentioned a dark fruitcake but not sweet at all with herbs and bay. The scent is described as warmer compared to other colognes but I see why to use it in the winter months....... frankly I intend to use it all the time in sunny Florida!! You will catch yourself cupping your hands and catching the delicious scent from your face (use the balm its amazing) I now know why people love it. Its unique and that's a good thing ! The quality of the lather is amazing , the Excelsior Base will provide you with a close comfortable shave. Your skin will love you for it!

Very unique, strong scent

Nice cologne scent that I couldn't even begin to describe, and that's a good thing. The scent is strong and sticks around longer than some of their other offers. I find this one best to be followed with a splash of unscented witch hazel.

Top Notch

Can’t really go wrong with any BM scent, but Cologne Russe doesn’t get the hype some others do. Love excelsior base, probably in my top 3 across all soap makers.
