Pronounced somewhat like Cawt-shee, in Celtic lore that Cat Sidhe (Fairy Cats) were spirit realm creatures who took the form of large black cats with white spots on their chest. Usually feared, there are also stories of the cats bringing good fortune.
The symbol of the black cat has spanned ages. The pilgrims at Plymouth Rock considered black cats to be part demon and part sorcery, and to own one could cause serious punishment. Today still, the black cat is synonymous with Witchcraft, shape changing, and bad luck.

I have been using Cat Sidhe for other a month now, for perhaps a dozen shaves, and I can whole-heartedly endorse this shaving soap. I like to use the aggressive razors with very sharp blades and I am getting very smooth clean shaves. The scent is light and that suits me well
Had high hopes based on what I had read. But...I was quite disappointed. Didn’t really deliver on cushioning, protection or slickness. Post shave was pretty good. Overall...the base needs work if you’re going to compete with the Grooming Departments, Barristers and Tallow +Steels of the world..
The Cat's Meow
Cat Sidhe shave soap is the scent of Neroli Portofino" Bergamot cologne which is made up of the following scents: Bergamot, Mandarin, Neroli, Orange, and Amber. This soap is extremely soft, in my opinion, I would call it a thick cream. It takes a great deal of water. However, I would not recommend blooming this soap, but rather just adding a little bit of water at a time to find that sweet spot. The soap also a very good post shave and very nice slickness as well.
Fresh Spring Scent
What a great soap and scent. While I didn't find fairy cats at the end of the shave, the soap was an all-star. It reminded me of a clean early Spring day with a touch of moisture in the air. I later learned that the soap is modelled after a Tom Ford EDT. Well executed and highly recommend.
Great first impression
Excellent shave! Scent is very nice and light with a great slick, protective lather. Cant wait to go through their other samples I have waiting for me!
