There is nothing more classic a scent in wet shaving, especially in the last 20 years, than Proraso Green Splash! The only real problem I ever had with this juice is how close to the skin the scent was when worn...not a bad thing at all. In fact, for a traditional aftershave, this is on point. However, the scent just rocks! I'm a firm believer in "leave them wanting more" but this was too much and I wasn't alone on this. Many folks over the years wanted a matching soap. I can hear some of you now, "but there is a matching shave cream Doug!"
That's kinda true, but not really. Though there is a Tube of cream in the line, it is more complimenting than matching. Meaning, the scent is not the same though it does share similar dna. The cream I find to be menthol and Eucalyptus, and that's pretty much it. Great stuff still and will certainly wake you up in the morning but not a perfect match. Once more, this is perfectly in line in past tradition when it comes to aftershave and shave soap. Like William's Mug Soap & Aqua Velva often sold as a pair, and pair they do, but they are not the same.
For years we would get requests for just this very thing, a matching shave soap in a stronger rendition of this iconic scent. But it wasn't till Christopher David Bailey requested it in a vid have jokingly that I really took it seriously. Chris has always raved about this particular fragrance with real, sincere excitement. He also hasn't really had an homage soap done for him in a long time. So it just seemed like the stars had finally aligned. Oh and then when it came to naming the product I had to opt for one of Bailey's classic catch phrases, Awesome Sauce. Again, the stars were aligned.
This One's For You Chris!!! (Thanks for twisting my arm!)
Fans of this invigorating, talcy, memorable, mentholated and masculine juice will absolutely fall in love with our latest homage, Awesome Sauce! Shave On & Stay Groovy!
