Oh man!

A well known Irish brand has released its first complete men’s range.

The Handmade Soap Company’s new range for men includes a beard oil, hair and body wash, shaving gel, after-shave balm, a bar of soap, and an all-natural deodorant, all carefully considered and handmade for men.

Brand founder Donagh Quigley was Inspired by famed perfumers Frederic Malle and Jean Claude Ellena, when creating the signature scent for this new range, using a complex mix of pure essential oils, from hay, to pink pepper, and bitter orange.

He said: “We only use essential oils to fragrance our products, in line with our ccocert and Cosmos Natural accreditations. So, I had to be creative about what I could use. After much searching for specialty natural fragrance merchants, I stumbled across the most amazing Hay Absolute, which is a concentrated version of an extract of hay. This was then married with pink pepper which gives a much rounder and softer heat than the sharper and much more readily available black peppercorn. The scent was then lifted by bitter orange and cardamom and then balanced with cedarwood and geranium. This is a complex but not complicated blend that I am really proud of.”
