Bespoke #1 Shaving Soap

  • Sale

"The scent of the soap is so intricate, just opening the tub is an experience." - M.S.

Bespoke #1 has its roots in the annual charity auction put on at  in which we donated a batch of custom soap as an item to be auctioned off. 


As a result of a collaboration with the winning bidder, we came up with Bespoke #1, a very complex yet earthy scent that is very fitting for the winter season. The ingredients for this scent include:

  • Vetiver Essential Oil
  • Ancient Fossilized Himalayan Amber Oil
  • Frankincense Essential Oil
  • Opopanax (Sweet Myrrh)
  • Clove Essential Oil
  • Pepper Essential Oil
  • Bergamot Essential Oil
  • Patchouli Essential Oil
  • Cedar Essential Oil
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Anise Extract
  • Labdanum Absolute

This is a very earthy scent, with a vetiver base augmented by amber, frankincense, sweet myrrh, pepper, clove, and cedar. If you're one of those who treats shaving as a ritual, this soap (which includes components that have been used in incense and fragrance for millennia), should complement that nicely. 

Please note that this is our new French red clay base, which provides excellent slickness and post-shave that rivals any tallow soap while remaining true to our vegan roots.  This base needs a little less water than a lot of other soaps on the market, so load using a damp brush then add water to the point where a thick creamy slick lather is achieved.

Ingredients: Stearic Acid, Palm Kernel Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Glycerin, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Water, Aloe Vera Juice, Essential Oils (Vetiver Essential Oil, Himalayan Amber Oil (in Sunflower Oil), Frankincense Essential Oil, Opopanax (Sweet Myrrh) Essential Oil, Clove Essential Oil, Pepper Essential Oil, Bergamot Essential Oil, Patchouli Essential Oil, Cedar Essential Oil, Vanilla Extract, Anise Extract, Labdanum Absolute (in Sunflower Oil)).  , French Red Clay, Sodium Lactate, Allantoin (comfrey plant).

Each tub contains at least 4 oz of shaving soap in an 8oz container

Excellent soap

Lathers well and has excellent slipperyness. Great scent as well. One of the beat soaps I have used over the years. I will be ordering again.

Awesome soap

This is one of the best soaps out there. The red clay formula is an upgrade and provides excellent cushion and slickness. Very easy to lather. The scent is unrivaled and is my favorite vetiver based soap. Buy it- you will thank me later!

Rich, earthy, and exotic

I had not tried the old formula of Bespoke#1. But this is great stuff if you whip it up as directed (less wet brush and a few more swirls before application). The cedar, pepper, and clove lead to an exotic spice driven, yet earthy scent. Prepared right it leaves a thick slick cushion and a great clean feeling after.
I had used several other scents of the old formula. They were idiot proof and provided a perfect shave no matter how you whipped it up. This demands a little attention in preparation, yet richly rewards when the sweet spot is found.

Not The Same

There was no scent to this soap. I compared it to a previously purchased container of bespoke#1. It doesn’t lather the same as it used to. I will not be buying anymore soap.

Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction, if you are not happy, please respond to the email I sent you and I will send a return label you can use to get a full refund. While we do have a base formula with more luxurious oils for an enhanced post shave skin feel, the scent concentration has never changed since the first tub of bespoke #1 made by Los Angeles Shave Soap Co. It is possible that your tub was mislabeled though, which is why I would love to get it back - to check it for errors and ensure that this won't happen again.
Excellent soap

Really like the new formula, but the old was awesome too. Great lather, super shave, nice scent.

Thanks for your support and your review - always great to hear from customers!
