For anyone who is a Prince fan and hasn't seen this yet... Shave Heaven has just released a special soap and balm to honor the musical genius and legend Prince. It is called Diamonds and Pearls and has a pretty awesome sounding scent profile. Links to the products pages are below.

How on earth does a shave cream, can of soup, ballpoint pen, cologne or dog biscuit with someone's name on it, honor them.

I'm guessing they did NOT get permission to use his likeness (or a complete rip off picture from Google images of him) to hock their product.

I'd love to know if they did get permission by Prince's estate or people. But I'm guessing they have bigger things to worry about right now then licensing his name to a mom & pop soap company that may earn them $2.85 in royalty revue.

What a disgrace and embarrassment.

I have to agree, I'm not really sure how this is homage to his legacy and it's not that I'm a big Prince fan because I'm not. I just don't see how selling something with his image and name on it is somehow honouring his memory unless they are donating proceeds to something that would be connected to his life and/or death. Even then, they should be seeking permission from his family to ensure that they are doing it with proper respect. I'm not a fan of commercializing someone else's life and this type of thing doesn't sit well with me because I've seen it a lot when it comes to companies, and politicians, exploiting military and veterans for their own gain without being sensitive to the sacrifices and traditions involved in military service.

At least the description is as absurd and a complete rip off of the artist as the label is. What a bunch of money grubbers.

This soap is a "Small Batch" soap and is not available through resellers. Once it's gone, its gone for good!

"Electric word life
It means forever and that's a mighty long time
But I'm here 2 tell u
There's something else
The afterworld"
- Prince "Lets go crazy"

To celebrate the life of Prince we have released this limited edition soap in his honour. Sophisticated and complex like the artist himself.
