Campione Fine Shaving Soap

Meet Campione!

An Italian-inspired Oriental aromatic composition.

Campione has a mid-level scent intensity with a fairly linear progression from top to bottom notes. This fragrance is currently available in our fine shaving soap and alcohol-free aftershave splash, and is suitable for any day and any weather, and especially appropriate for cold climate and special occasions.

The inspiration

The summer of 2019 was the first time I experienced Tabacco Toscano by Santa Maria Novella. My daughter and son-in-law returned from their Italian honeymoon bearing gifts from that historic monastery-turned-perfume-house. Tabacco Toscano is a light, refined tobacco and bergamot fragrance - easy to wear for most occasions. I knew in an instant that I needed to create something similar.

Utilizing essential oils, absolutes, resins, and the same high quality aroma materials used by large perfume houses world-wide, we created a fragrance that is similar to Tabacco Toscano in at least one way: it is a balanced woody oriental fragrance and is wearable all year-round, particularly in colder weather. Campione is not a duplication of Tabacco Toscano, but it was definitely inspired by it.

The notes

We set out to create a creamier tobacco scent with supporting notes of wood, dried fruit, and citrus.

Top: bergamot, clementine, dried fruit

Middle: tobacco, frankincense, jasmine, coconut, almond, hay

Base: amber, vanilla, musk, cognac, sandalwood

The collaboration

The image on the label was created by ultra-talented Canadian artist Trevor Jameus (@roveink). Please check out his other works, and tell him we sent you.

The label is a union of inspiration from no fewer than four sources: Ferrari - the iconic Italian car manufacturer; the “Rumors of War” sculpture by American artist Kehinde Wiley; the magnificent Canadian horse breed; and my daughter’s passion for all things equine.

Only 200 soaps made, each label is individually numbered.

The lather

We hope you like a thick, glossy, creamy lather that foams up with the flick of the wrist, because that’s what Campione provides. Prepare your gear as you normally do and make your brush just slightly drier than you think it should be. Whisk. Add water gradually and methodically and you’ll be rewarded with a dense plume quicker than a Portofino.
