Raise the Bar

Something about summer makes you want to keep your showers cool and your grooming routine minimal. And there's nothing easier than lathering up with an old fashioned bar of soap. The problem with most mass market brands is that they go quick and tend to dry out your skin. And then there's the scents. Some smell like laundry detergent, others like candy, fruit or women. These small-batch soaps do a body good and leave you smelling, well, like a man.


Made from Italian mineral spring water, this soap is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal (great for the gym) and has an old school medicinal smell.
