Parker Safety Razor Sandalwood Shaving Soap in Travel Container

Parker Shaving’s Sandalwood Sheabutter shave soap is one that I’ve used off and on for quite some time but just getting around to doing a review.   Admittedly it’s not one that I use often.  That is not due to performance or smell.  I just really like the travel sized container and tend to reserve it for when I have to fly as it doesn’t take up a heck of a lot of space in my dopp.  Though, I may reach for it on occasion while at home.

The label notes Sandalwood Sheabutter.  However, this doesn’t smell like other sandalwood fragrances I have previously smelled.   I can’t pinpoint what the fragrance is.  But, the soap smells sweet and almost floral.  My wife’s first impressions were of lilac, lily of the valley, and cut grass.  It is not an appalling scent by any stretch; just not what I would necessarily reach for if I was in a mood for an all sandalwood themed shave.

While I haven’t taken it to a wide range of places, I’ve used the soap in California, Hawaii, Florida, New York, and Pennsylvania.  Each time, I found the soap pretty easy to lather.  I also found to be slick, protective, and the scent washed away during that post shave rinse.  All of this made for a positive shave experience both at home and away.


I easily get a slick, protective lather with this soap.

Parker Safety Razor’s Sandalwood Sheabutter Luxury Shave Bar is available in a 100 gram bar as well as the travel sized 50 gram container.   It looks like the clear travel container that I use may no longer be available.  I will have to say that I do like the black container that is pictured on many other sites.   I am torn which I prefer.
