Product Description

We’ve wanted to do a bay rum for years, but it took a while to get things the way we want.

This is a tropical bay rum – quite different than most bay rums on the market today – this one actually has a bit of a rum kick to it and is spiced up with ginger and lime to give it a lighter more tropical feel.

Contains the following notes:

Jamaican Rum – this accord is a blend of natural and artificial scent oils, and smells a lot like a traditional oak-aged spiced rum.

Bay leaves – not the ones from Mom’s kitchen!  This is 100% essential oils from the traditional  west indie’s bay leaf pimenta racemosa

Bergamot – Essential to a tropical bay rum scent, this gives a nice citrus kick that isn’t too sweet.  Bergamot is probably best known for giving earl grey tea it’s distinctive flavour.

Lime – Gives a fresh kick to an otherwise somewhat dark scent

Clove – Every bay rum needs a bit of clove, though this one is understated and blends in rather than taking centre stage like clove will tend to if not reigned in.

Cinnamon – A bit of warm spice

Ginger – This kinda sets this apart from most bay rums.  Initially, you get a nice strong hit of ginger which quickly mellows out to a more traditional dry down.

Black pepper – This grounds the scent nicely giving it a bunch more refinement.

Vanilla – for a nice mellow smoothness – it really ties things together.

    This is the first Chiseled Face soap I’ve purchased, and based off the performance I get with this I’ll check out others as well. Easy to lather, good cushion and nice and slick, definitely falls in line with other artisans in this price range.

    As for the scent, at first I very hesitant after opening the tub for the first time. Ginger and bay leaf really dominates the rest of the profile in the tub, and to be frank, it smells kind of odd. Upon lathering however, the scent opens up and you pick out the cinnamon and vanilla. It’s still definitely a manly rum scent that’s heavy on the spice, but I find myself reaching for it much more often than I expected. Sometimes first impressions aren’t everything.

    Great soap performance with a good scent. This scent is front loaded with ginger and bay leaves. When lathered cinnamon and clove are more obvious. Not a traditional bay rum scent, but it works. Lather is slick and protective. This is a winner, just know that it’s a different take on bay rum.
