Crossposting here from my Merchant Section: Mods let me know if I should remove this.

Would anyone here have any interest in a long lost collaboration scent between Queen Charlotte Soaps and The HandleBar?

Several years ago, Matthew made a special custom scented batch of shave soap for my shop. I had lots of issues with my label designer at the time which delayed things, and then my father passed away which naturally altered things. Then I kept putting it off and ultimately forgot about it, all the while this perfectly great batch of soap was just sitting there waiting for me to do something. The scent is "Old Toby", which if you are a JRR Tolkien Fan, is a type of tobacco (Pipeweed) in Middle Earth. It's what I imagine it would smell like.
Those of you that have tried our Old Toby beard oil know the scent already.

So, would anyone out there like one last go with some Queen Charlotte Soap? I am considering packing it in smaller 20ml jars so there is enough to go around. That size should be good for around 10 shaves, perhaps more.

I'll try it, I never got around to trying any Queen Charlotte soaps.

Do it and let us know when we can purchase. I already purchased from you Cayman, Celestial Woods, Cubano Breeze, Esquire and Fougère. I would be interested in any other scents they might develop.

Yes I recall you loaded up! This one isn't an official scent from QCS, it is my custom scent that they put into their soap.

I haven't figured that out yet. Let me first see how many jars the batch fills and check my pricing. They'll be a hefty sample though, larger than typical samples.

Unfornuate side effect of trying discontinued products. But if you do like it, would encourage you to finish the sample at least.

I'm definitely interested. Was actually thinking about QCS the other day. Hated when they closed doors.
