Product Description

There is a stark difference between spring and summer, and Contemplation falls squarely in summer. In spring, the flowers are in bloom and pollen is in the air, but by the time that July rolls around, the plants put off a different aroma. There is a green scent in the air: of citrus in a slowly ripening state while the vegetation underfoot is photosynthesizing in overdrive, drinking the in the sun. There is no harvest and there is no bloom: this summer day is still, quiet and contemplative with nothing on the to-do list other than simply enjoy it.

    Wow! This Icarus soap base is the best soap I have ever used and I have over 100 soaps and all the top rated soap brands. I used the soap with aftershave this morning and enjoyed it so much I just ordered the Sweet Lemon and Shore scents. There is not a better soap out there. Highly recommend!!

    Fantastic performance!
    I have been wet shaving for the last year. I have been searching for the perfect soap and I have compiled a collection of around 30 different soaps. After 5 shaves with Contemplation, I can easily state that this Icarus formulation is the best of all I have tried to date. The performance is really slick, cushion is very protective and the best part is the comfortable post shave feel. Contemplation isn’t my favorite scent but it is really growing on me. I received a very close and comfortable shave with no nicks or razor burn. My skin felt wonderful afterwards. I am buying more and also trying the other two scents in the Icarus line. (Used a Merkur 34C with Rapira Swedish Steel blade).

    one of the absolute best, specially in the post-shave feeling department. Scent however, is lacking. I’m a big fan of soaps with distinct, unique scents and this one, unfortunately, does not score well. That’s why 4 stars. It also smells a bit gamey from the puck, but not from the lather. overall, if, say, it smelled like some B&M products, it would be a 6 star soap!
