Stateside Sonata Shaving Soap
I’m very proud and honored to release this collaboration set between the Lathertalk Podcast guys, Latherhog (Jonathan Hsieh), Hey Gerard Shaves (Gerard Gustilo) and myself. I’m a big fan of their show and more importantly as people…they are everything what’s great about this wonderful hobby. I have met Jonathan several times over the years and most recently at our event in November. I had approached them about doing a collaboration together during the summer, as I thought it would be a great fit and more importantly fun! Last year they had a superb release with Ben of Mammoth (a great scent) and I thought the timing was right to perhaps do something together. This was a collaborative effort and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. Jon and Gerard’s approach was to create a scent representative of their respective home states, Massachusetts and California. They came up with Apples, representing the apple orchards in New England and the west coast represented by salted air, bonfires and redwood trees. I did my very best to create something which they would be proud to stamp their name on. The scent is approachable, fun and should be appealing to most everyone.
I would also like to thank Wyze0ne for his beautiful work on the labels. Jeff took Jon & Gerard’s vision and masterfully created the design for these labels. Thank you!!!
