Myrkvior is pronounced mir-vitter and is Old Norse for Dark Forest
This soap came about as a result of a request for a custom soap from the /r/wet_shavers subreddit, and both the scent and the name were the result of popular votes on that subreddit.
The ingredients and essential oils in this soap combine to provide a subtle, warm, earthy, almost spice cakey scent. As I described the scent elsewhere, it’s almost what you might expect if a forest gnome invited you for a holiday dinner – quiet, kind of earthy, with some hints of spice.
Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Palm Kernel Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Glycerin, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Water, Aloe Vera Juice, Essential Oils (Labdanum Absolute (in Sunflower Oil), Whisky, Vanilla Extract, Rose Absolute (in Fractionated Coconut Oil), Cedarwood Essential Oil, Geranium Essential Oil, Orange Extract, Organic Black Spruce Essential Oil, Juniper Leaf / Berry Essential Oil), French Red Clay, Activated Charcoal, Sodium Lactate, Allantoin (comfrey plant).
Nice lather and easy shave. I absolutely love the scent. I would agree that is has an earthy, deep smell to it. Reminds me of a walking through the woods after a hard rain.
Does the job I need it to! Would recommend.
