Enriched with soothing sweet almond, scented with subtle Hinoki charred wood, this silky cream is gentle to the most fragile chins and tender cheeks.
You don’t need a barber chair nor professional expertise to have a proper close shave. Our Crème Pogonotomienne, or “the art of the proper shave”, is first in line for this special ritual. Preparing your skin properly is essential. The cream is perfectly velvety, deliciously scented with Japanese cypress wood, divinely textured, and enthralling as it produces an admirable softness everywhere it is applied. Sweet almond soothes skin irritations and provides a silky veil, while deeply nourishing beeswax leaves a protective layer on the skin to prevent itching. It’s a shaving cream and an after shave at once. The skin is soft and smooth. The cheeks are finally ready for the most charming of attentions: a delicate kiss, on a delicate skin.
NB. Pogonotomy is not a dance: it’s the classic art of the proper shave. The word comes from ancient Greek, by way of the expert hands of Alphonse Bouchard, a famous 19th-century barber. “Pogos” means “beard”, and “temno” means “to cut”.
The delicate product is extremely pleasant to use and manipulate.
Advice for Use & Care
