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.

Nice surprise for the winter

I ordered this soap and aftershave balm not really knowing what to expect and was pleasantly surprised how good it is. The scent is on the floral side but not warm at all - it does deliver on its promise of a cold, bright smell and in fact is a nice "wake up" for the nose in the morning. The performance is great with my aggressive razor and dry skin. It's taken top spot on my winter shave shelf. One of my favorite B&M offerings.

Wonderful

I do not know how you are able to catch the scent of a cool winter night so perfectly. As always, the soap itself is fantastic for shaving, but the scent here really transports me into the snowy mountains, and I love it.

Decent scent

Overall not a bad scent. I could do with less of the floral coming out in it but I'll use it as it is.

Really like the scent

As usual, the shave soap is fantastic and creates a slick lather for a great shave. Eigengrau is a nice, powdery scent that conjures up memories of being outdoors in the snow.

Fantastic Soap

I love the scent of this one, the description provided is spot on. It lathers super well, and I think it pairs nicely with Waves.
