Nocturne Shaving Soap


Nocturne Shaving Soap
25 |

Nocturne is a seasonal scent for Autumn and will be discontinued on December 31st.

Anyone who’s been there will tell you that, in New England, Autumn is the best time of year. The trees turn vivid colors, the weather becomes perfectly brisk, and the apple and corn crops are harvested and made into all kinds of wonderful foods to enjoy. The scent of woodsmoke fills the air and fallen leaves litter the ground, crunching pleasantly underfoot wherever you go. It’s a wonderful time, and at the center of it all is the cider mill.
Cider mills are incredible places. The smell of apples suffuses the walls and a wood fire usually burns in the corner. Trays and trays of apple cider donuts fill the tables and counters next to carafes of hot cider and coffee. The buildings smell wonderful and we wanted to capture that smell in soap form. After long experimentation, we blended the scents of apples, newly fallen leaves, woodsmoke, benzoin, and the faintest touch of cinnamon to create a slightly smokey, faintly spicy, wonderful scent perfect for the crisp, clear days of Autumn.

Good but not great

This soap was formulated as most B and M products, and I didn’t mind the scent, but it didn’t wow me like their other products. Unfortunately my wife hated the scent, her words were to never wear that stuff again. All in all not bad in my opinion. Reminds me of campfire a little bit.

Another Great One

Someone else commented about Nocturne being somewhat similar to Roam, and I agree. There's an earthy undertone that is awesome! Leaves and damp earth, and definitely smoky. Nocturne is tied with Leviathan for 2nd place in my rotation, with Roam being my absolute first place. The lather of Nocturne is the familiar B&M luxury and performance I have come to expect from all of their soaps, which is to say it gives me amazingly protective and comfortable face and head shaves. These guys know how to make shave soap!

Excellent Soap

The lather and slickness of this soap was fantastic. The only ding is that when I used it my family said that it was a little heavy on the smoke scent. I would agree but the perception of this scent will very from person to person. Having commented on the scent, I would absolutely purchase this again!

Not quiet the scent I was expecting

This is just an opinion, I was hoping the apple scent was on the first part. Just a tad Smokey. Shaves well.
