Batch Notes

The scent of the fragrance inspired this man soap.

As described at Brambleberry:

We asked our perfumer to create a scent that reminded us of the Gentlemen’s clubs of the 18th century. Tobacco and black tea are the dominate notes with hints of fruit and spice. This fragrance is heady, masculine and evokes images of the classic well dressed gentleman, Beau Brummel.
