I was told long ago that the Wickham Soap Company was pretty much out of business but yet here is the Website http://w-soap.co.uk/  open taking orders. So could someone let me know whats going on


Thanks

I really don’t have any details, but I read somewhere a while ago that Darron had opened shop again, near the beginning of this year.

It seems the selection on the site is slightly limited (I haven’t seen all of the soaps from the selection he used to make before the hiatus), but I do hope that Wickham will keep on keeping on. In my limited experience I’ve found it to be a very nice soap.

He closed due to family issues and reopened about two months ago.

Yes, he's back & I highly recommend his Spice Trade 'croap' as it's a dead ringer re smell for vintage Shulton Old Spice as well as an outstanding product. Wink

It’s great to see that Wickham is making some limited edition releases. They had one a couple of months ago on their own website, but this Imperial Trevor is something I hadn’t seen before. I hope you enjoy it, KungOscar!

Yes, Wickham is alive and kicking. I have just received Wickham 1912 Club Cola shaving soap. Packaging is different than before and the soap is harder. Scent? Well... I am not huge fan of such kind of scents, but this one is really nice. It is of course Coke scent. It smell also like well caramelized lemon tart. Of course very important is performance. I have lathered the soap with synthetic Maggard ∅24 mm. Lather was thick, luxurious and there was plenty of lather. Good job, Wickham!!!

Than I have started shaving with my Mühle Sophist (R89) razor and Treet Dura Sharp carbon steel razor blade. I have prepared face for shaving and always – washing hair and face with L'Oreal shampoo. Yes, I know, it is not very professional, but it works great for me. It was exceptionally good shaving – perfect glide and superb cushioning. Unbelievable! BBS 100% so easily.

Damn, does this soap has any problems? Let's check post shave skin condition. It gets boring – also great post shave feeling – quite good scent and skin was really nice, similar to the condition after using Mitchell's Wool Fat.

I have finished grooming with Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille. What a wonderful start of the day!

Great job, Wickham.

I have preordered Russian Leather. I am very curious how it will smell.
