Wow, it sure seems like forever since I last posted one of these.  Life has been pretty busy as of late and the SOTD blogging has really fallen off.  Rest assured, I haven’t given up shaving.  Hopefully, I can squeeze in a few more SOTDs going forward.  And speaking of falling behind, White Buffalo is a soap that I’ve had in my den for a while and while I’ve used it a few times, I haven’t gotten around to posting about it.

White Buffalo was my first 345 Soap Co offering.  When I grabbed White Buffalo, I really wasn’t sure what to think of the scent, so I opted to just grab just the soap.  I can say it is a nice scent but I’m glad I didn’t grab the splash.  Let me explain…..  Scent notes on this are bergamot, lemon, tobacco, anise, cinnamon, sandalwood, patchouli, oakmoss, amber.  Together it rounds out to a barbershop scent that is anise forward.  It is a very familiar scent.  Think YSL Rive Gauche (a pretty popular shaving soap dupe), Mason Margiela At The Barbers or Azzaro Pour Homme.  It is a really nice blend and has a strong scent strength.  My only issue, and the reason I’m happy to not have the splash, is that it is a bit redundant in my den.  I have a lot of options to pair this with.  I can say I was really impressed with the soap base.  I found it very easy to lather and it performs very well across the board.  It is very slick (lathered and residual), has good cushion and has a very good post-shave.  The price point is excellent as well.  This is an artisan I’ll be keeping my eye on in the future.

No complaints with this shave today.  All for now – J
