@johp3r, John Perry, & @xicano_design, Rafa in collaboration with Bill Graham of Murphy and McNeil present to you the Gael Laoch release.
For those that follow John and Rafa you've seen the work, love for life, and love for this shaving hobby. It's a mutual respect from two guys who are similar yet so different. This Gael Laoch release is a follow up to BDLM, Barbershop De Los Muertos, which was a small release done last year that was very well received and had many people wishing they got in on it. When the time came to plan another release they had this scent on their mind and knew exactly the artisan to do it. The fact that everything ties together so well is no accident either.
Murphy and McNeil, with their affinity for Irish/Scottish history and symbolism, has been producing arguably one of the top tier soaps for a little while now. This made it more than easy to ask Bill for a collaboration on this set. The time has come.
The Norse–Gaels were a people of mixed Gaelic and Norse ancestry and culture. They emerged in the Viking Age, when Vikings who settled in Ireland and in Scotland adopted Gaelic culture and intermarried with Gaels. The Norse–Gaels dominated much of the Irish Sea and Scottish Sea regions from the 9th to 12th century. Bad asses are the ones who survived and thrived.
Gael Laoch is a set in tribute to those who get up each day and conquer. For some it is those that serve and protect us and our way of life. It is also those that show up daily and work hard in their day to day life. They are your friends, family, coworkers, and strangers.
Warriors in the simplest form and those that you count on, even when you don't realize it.
The scent on this set is inspired by Creed Viking and is one that will evoke these feelings in us all.
Using a NEW modified version Murphy and McNeil's sought-after duck/tallow formula to provide greater firmness to our soap, this limited release is sure to be an excellent addition to your summer shaving lineup while supporting an amazing cause.

Im back again and as always Bill and the team at Murphy and McNeil didn't disappoint I bought the Gael Lauch black thinking I would not get the newly released Orange but ill get to that shortly. Man when I opened the container to the shave soap I was blown away by the scent and body of the product. Next when I lathered up it was it was easy to develop a smooth. silky and and slick lather that gave a great shave and as good an after shave! And as a bonus i was able to get on the list for the Orange and its already on the way!!! Thanks again for your efforts to produce great products for you followers! JimD
