Nantahala Aftershave Splash



Description from Joe @BlackMountainShaving

Every year as a boy growing up, we would travel to our place in the mountains of Western North Carolina.  Sometimes at spring, and others at fall, we would be greeted by a time where things moved slower.  On rare occasions, my parents would let us break out the original Atari with the only game we had for it: Pong.  It was just us, that endless forest, the streams, and the slate that bound us together as a family - these sacred lands once held by the Eastern Band Cherokee and more.

Along all the paths I have traveled and the adventures I have been a part of, I have been struck by the seemingly endless connectivity that holds even the most uncanny things together.  There is a positive energy we all leave behind with each step we take.  This is a realization that came to me during those moments underneath the thick canopies of the Nantahala forest, the land of the noonday sun.

Nantahala means "jumping waters" in Cherokee, and as water makes it's way through and binds slate, granite, and earth... so too does water shape and bind us together in the shaving community.

Nantahala is a dedication to and celebration of nature and the spiritual connectivity that binds us all.  Clean streams, slate and rock, trees, woods, and the sweet sunlight on our faces.  Every note in this fragrance carries a meaning for me and my time with family in the Nantahala forest.  The sun is represented by citrus notes such as bergamot, pear, and lemon.  Marine notes and pink pepper remind me of clean water running over stone, and the dark canopy of the forest is brought by notes such as wood, tonka, patchouli and lavender.

A portion of the proceeds of this set will be dedicated to The Nature Conservancy at in tribute to these lands.  I encourage you to look at this group and find ways to get involved within your own communities to find ways to preserve our environment and product these places that bring us together.

We hope you enjoy your experience with Nantahala.


A Word from Murphy and McNeil

I'm very excited to present this product to you.  Our limited edition KODIAK base is the result of a series of tests with some of our best friends in the community, and our first time incorporating ingredients such as jojoba, and bear tallow sourced from Canada.

Along with tallow, duck, and other amazing components we hope we've put together a shaving soap you'll think is awesome!

    Amazing shave and scent

    The scent is great but the shave is sublime. I have a soft face and an exceptionally coarse beard. I have been taking shaving seriously for something like twenty-five years now- I pretty much have to with this combination. I use single-edge Feathers in aggressive razors. That means slickness is everything. This Kodiak base makes for the slickest shave I've ever had, and I've tried lots and lots of good crams/soaps/croaps. And the scent? Well, like I said- it's great- but when I say that, I mean really great. I think I just might be an M and M customer for life.

    Has an odd maple syrup after smell.

    Aftershave feels great, just don’t like the smell. Neither does my girl friend.

    These guys not only have a excellent product selection but the customer service is by far the best in the business. The smell is long lasting and a unique quality scent. Highly recommended
