A mystery spanning ages, the symbol of the Green Man is of uncertain origin. Nearly always, the he is depicted as a face surrounded by leaves and other foliage, sometimes with leaves and or vines growing out of his ears or mouth.
Believed widely to be another symbol of growth and rebirth, as nature... yet with a human persona. Perhaps the Green Man symbolized man's necessary bond with nature, or even man's emergence *from* nature. Images of the Green Man absent the foliage, only as a skull with old vines may be meant to symbolize man's eventual return to nature, or the outcome of man's impact on nature should the balance not be protected.
Images of the Green Man have been found far predating the Roman Empire, and is generally assumed to be pre-Christian in origin, often associated with the Celts.

The Aon soap is a proven performer for me. It lathers quickly, easily, and provides all the comfort and protection anyone needs. The scent is like a classic fougere (earthiness, herbal, lavender), but with a wonderful addition of anise that some vanilla rounds out. I love that subtle hint of licorice-mintiness that it gives. Another winner!
This will make an excellent summer scent when I just want excellent performance with a clean and fresh scent. Performance like the other M&M soaps I have tried are absolutely stellar.
Scent and performance are top-notch.
I enjoy the scent and performance is excellent. Super slick and very protective. One of the few soaps I’ve tried that can tame a Feather blade with my most aggressive razors. Great post shave also.
I am new to wet shaving and this is my first purchase of an artisan shaving soap. For a beginner like me, it lathers easily and smells great. It's nice and slick for a close shave.
