That's correct. I'm looking to have the bottle engraved before we fill it and put it up for auction.

All proceeds will go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and I will match the donation up to $500. Smile

Where do I start the bid at $500? =p

I'll be putting it on eBay when it's ready, but the bid will start at $1. That said, I'll be severely disappointed if we do not break the $500 mark.

I received my tub of Night Music in the mail today and shaved with it an hour ago. Thank you again Nick for selling me one of yours. The packaging and net bag was a nice touch, and I especially like how the label on the lid has the ingredients on the bottom which you can see through the clear lid.

This was my first experience with the new Glissant base. The lather was exceptional and provided a very slick shave. It seems to be slicker or more protective because I was able to go ATG around my mouth without cutting myself which I can't typically do with any soaps. I was also able to do my touchup pass without applying any lather due to the residual slickness.

Now on to the scent of Night Music. I absolutely love this scent and my wife likes it too which is always good. I smelled a strong strawberry note up front that stuck around for the duration of my 3 pass shave. I can detect the musk in the backgound but something rounds it out nicely to where it's not as dark as Leviathan but it's still noticeably there. When painting on the lather for the second pass the scent was darker at times which I loved. Overall I get a strawberry and musk scent that I know is much more complex but that's what I notice most. It is a beautiful scent that I will enjoy for months of shaves.

Thanks, Will. I look forward to getting a full tub as a friend sent me a large sample and I have to say that it is one of the loveliest and one of my favourite scents in soaps I have tried. Shy

I was hesitant to post this but thought some of you would (hopefully) find it amusing. Of course, I mean no offense to Will....

So on occasion I "shave" with my 5 yo son (he has a toy shave kit). I usually let him pick the shave soap....I line up about 15 on the counter and he picks one. Last night he happened to pick Night Music, saying it smelled great. But he was concerned that it, "looked like poop." I told him that they didn't use poop to make it but that it is different from a lot of other soaps.

He wasn't convinced (he can be stubborn) so I asked if he wanted to pick something else. He declined, as he loved the scent and....after showing him the ingredients, convinced him that poop was not part of the recipe.

We had a great shave which I followed up with Night Music AS!

daverasi LOL funny story Smile. I associate it with chocolate, but I can see how the other thing is of a comparable color.

Your son has a great nose! Night Music is a scent that I think would appeal most to fragrance lovers. Perhaps when he gets older you can surprise him with a nice fragrance? Smile

His go to had been Catties Bubbles LTV so much so that it hasn't been an option of late. I've also got a ton of frags for him in about 12+ years.

Once it's lathered up, the night Music looks like delicate chocolate mousse!

I finally shaved with the Night Music combo. I was very hesitant about this fragrance, because I usually prefer bright and fresh scents. But the description was so intriguing and I wanted to give a try to this new masterpiece from B&M.
My take on the fragrance: after the initial notes of vanilla and several iterations of animal musk (which might be pleasant or not, YMMV), these notes are combined with bergamot, iris and hints of strawberry. This ensemble becomes simply excellent and you can continue to smell it through the dry-down of the aftershave. The tweaked Glissant formula provides a lot of slickness and the post-shave feel is extremely good!
