WSC seems to have limited stock of this limited(?) run of Citricuya shave soap right now with the AS being sold out. Being a sucker for cutting edge type citrus scents and also a lover of their Excelsior base I swallowed the "bait" and bought a tub of this soap. It came today and whiffing the tub brings a big smile to my face. THIS is a classy & tasteful scent, ladies & gentleman!! It's unlike anything I recall smelling before. Their description:


Quote:This is the perfect summer scent imbued with the essence of south Florida. Notes of blood orange, passionfruit, pear combine with pink pepper & galbanum. The citrus notes are long lasting but balanced expertly by the glabanum oil. 


If Will doesn't make this a mainstay in their lineup then he should be horsewhipped publicly!!  Tongue   Wink

West Coast Shaving had a batch of these up a few weeks ago, and they all sold out fairly quickly. I hesitated too long, with regret. So it was surprising to see some more of the Citricuyá soap suddenly available again.

BPman, I have high expectations for this! My wallet is not grateful for this discovery, but the hobbyist in me is. Smile

I used this soap today and mated it with Fine L'Orange Noir AS. Just simply a splendiferous shave.  Happy2

Sounds like a great shave! I’m eager to receive the soap and start figuring out which post-shave products to match it with.

У меня есть C2 и citricuja (новая база). Прекрасная база. Один из самых моих любимых авторов.

By the way, having had Passiflora previously, Citricuyá strongly reminds me of it. A “green” and uplifting citrus scent. (According to Try That Soap, the scent similarity between the two is only 32%. My nose seems to think it’s more than that.)

Glad that Citricuyá was available at least for a while. Beautiful soap, beautiful label.

Yeah, that's basically what we were asked to produce. "Something that reminds people of Passiflora without being Passiflora."
