Product Description

After many customer requests, we present Santa Paula, and all natural citrus based shaving soap.

Santa Paula, CA is a beautiful little town, known as the Citrus Capital of the World. Several years ago, I spent a couple months there and fell in love with the orchards that stretched in all directions. This is my ode to them. Light and perfect for every occasion, I hope you enjoy Santa Paula as much as I do.

An all natural blend of Petitgrain, Siberian Fir, Bitter Orange, Clary Sage, Litsea Cubeba, Siam Wood, and Cedar. This one is light and airy, a much needed scent in the Chiseled Face line up.

    God, this scent is horrible. It literally smells like a green pepper. Not bright, and I certainly get no citrus from it.

    Chiseled Face’s “Santa Paula” has a very nice, complex citrus scent that runs on the dark side vs. a Don Marko or Thomas Tew. The dominant note was a bit like blood orange to my nose. The lather was thick but a little bubbly, which concerned me, but the slickness, and protection were more or less on par with, say, a Soap Commander soap—i.e. excellent. And it really shined on post-shave, too; top notch. It paired very well, though not perfectly, with Beaver Woodwright’s “Thomas Tew” aftershave.

    Given that I only had time to wet my face with warm water as a pre-shave, and that I was on the third use of a Personna Lab Blue blade, the Santa Paula really did perform admirably. This soap is a total keeper but not necessarily at the top of my rotation—a couple more shaves and I will know for sure. YMMV

    Scent: 8
    Scent strength: 7
    Protection: 9
    Post-Shave: 10
    Ease of lather: 8
    Overall: 8.4

    I was really excited to finally get this soap. While I do not normally reach for citrus forward scents, the description on this intrigued me. The citrus note is that of bitter orange, not a cloying sweet orange or even a fresh squeezed orange. It is quickly grounded by notes of cedar, bark and herbaceous notes. The performance is also of high quality.
