@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.
A note from Bill at Murphy and McNeil
I couldn't be happier to have the opportunity to work with Rafa and John. As you can imagine the creation of this release has been a whirlwind, but both of these guys through their experience have taught me a ton about what it means to bring a great product to market, and I feel absolutely privileged to be able to feature our products with Rafa's amazing artwork.
I also wanted to let you know that in keeping with our values, this release will also be supporting an important cause. Every day in the U.S.A. there are those who both serve and have served in our nation's military. We believe in supporting our active military and veterans, particularly those who have given so much of themselves in pursuit of protecting our freedoms.
A portion of the proceeds of this release will be dedicated to support our members of the military and veterans who have been injured in the line of duty. Specifically, we will be contributing a portion of the sales of this release to the Wounded Warrior Project.

After shave gael loach free alcohol
Just fresh as I like... a good post shave effect...
Perfect compliment to the soap
I went with the menthol free as I am not a huge fan of menthol. This splash worked very well with the soap and added to the entire experience. I follow this with the EDP as the scent is on the light side, but it super close to Creed Viking in my opinion. I thoroughly enjoy this splash with the matching set.
First experience with M&M, went pretty whole hog on the set, non-menthol. Wanted to try both slashes, w/ and w/o alcohol. Scent is a great compliment/match to its inspiration. Both versions of the splash work well for me, but I'm not overly sensitive to alcohol.
Gael Laoch Aftershave
Great splash by Murphy and McNeil! My face felt fantastic. Immediately absorption, no sticky or oily feeling. Menthol level is perfect. Good cooling sensation without the burning, numbness or tears. Bottle shape and cap is a plus. Cap screws down securely and stops without fear of overturning and ruining it.
