Paganini's Violin Shaving Soap

Description

Legends abound of the remarkable skill of Italian violin virtuoso Niccolò Paganini, the greatest violinist of his time. He was so singularly talented that the story goes that he was playing a new composition at a nobleman's villa one evening, a piece commissioned by the nobleman to draw a pretty woman's affections. Paganini played beautifully, surrounded by admiring listeners, until one of the strings on the instrument snapped. Undaunted, Paganini continued to play without missing a note, and a second string snapped. He continued without interruption, to the amazement of everyone around him. Surely he could not continue? But then a third string snapped, and still Paganini continued to play, completing his performance on only the one remaining string on the violin. Awestruck, the listeners broke into thunderous applause, and the legend of Niccolò Paganini grew.

But in his later years, when asked by a biographer about the story, Paganini revealed the truth: the piece had been specifically written to be played on successively fewer strings, and it was Paganini himself who broke each one as he played, dazzling his audience in the process.

For Paganini's Violin, we have composed a fragrance built on multiple variations on a single note, all playing together into one unified, singular whole. The smell of clean skin after a hot shower, interlaced with fruity undercurrents and tea, Paganini's Violin is one of our most unusual experiments, and decidedly an in-house favorite. We know you'll love it too.

Net wt. 4 oz, Made in the USA

Excellent soap

Omnibus is one of the best, if not the best base out there. The scent is very nice, but could be a touch stronger.

Good not great

The lather is up to the great standards of B&M but... I like a soap that I can clearly "smell" and know what it smells like. For example, with Spice and Diamond I can tell there is Spice and I can savor the grass of Yankee Stadium. While others may like "more complex" aromas, I am a simple person who wants immediate olfactory satisfaction and not spend time figuring out top notes, middle notes, etc. So, it is me, not the soap but...
