In the fashion of German shaving soaps, Thuringian Forest has a very complex and manly scent profile and is one that has become a favorite among our customers.  The Thuringian Forest scent profile starts off with top notes of Bergamot, Lemon, Clary Sage, Aldehydes and Juniper, bolstered by middle notes of Geranium, Lavender, Orange Blossom, Clove, Nutmeg, Pimento and Red Oak.  All of those exquisite scents build upon the earthy base notes of Cedarwood, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Musk and Coffee.  When combined, they intermingle into an amazingly complex men's cologne fragrance that is deep, warm and woody.  You'll look forward to it each time it comes up in your rotation.

    Best Shaving Product I Have Ever Used

    Posted by Michael on Sep 17th 2022

    I don't normally leave reviews, but this shaving soap absolutely blew me away. I figured with such clean ingredients there would necessarily be an area where the soap was lacking in comparison to other artificial ones but I was dead wrong. The lather, scent, and overall quality of this soap are leagues ahead of anything else I have ever tried. The shave was so smooth I was visibly puzzled, and I have never before felt my skin so moisturized post-shave as I did with this. The scent is incredible, and I cannot wait to try the other two scents I ordered. Phenomenal product by a company that very obviously cares deeply about their products - and it is evident on the first use.

    Fantastic Fragrance and Performance

    Posted by Bro. Bobby on Apr 25th 2022

    This smells excellent! It's mild in the puck but opens up on that creamy lather. C & C have a champion with this one. Had to get the balm and soap bar! Love it!

    Interesting scent!

    Posted by Chris on Jun 19th 2018

    I really like this scent. Very masculine and woodsy. Reminds me of camping l, but very fresh as well. Performance is great, and really represents a good value as it is as good as any other soap I’ve tried. Really, some great stuff that makes really creamy think lather!

    Thuringian Forest Shave Soap

    Posted by Bob Connell on Dec 10th 2016

    This was my first shave with a Crowne & Crane soap. The Thuringian scent it great. The soap lathers very easily and I was able to load my brush with more than enough lather for 3+ passes. I got a very close, smooth, burn free shave…………and on the 7th day for this Gillette “Spoiler” SS blade. I am glad I tried it in spite of already having too many soaps………….

    Thuringia Forest shave soap

    Posted by Mike on Nov 13th 2016

    This is one of the best soaps I have ever used, and I've tried a lot! Built a luxurious lather that felt like satin. Great cushion and slickness was perfect for a straight razor. Can't wait to try more of their soaps! In my opinion, it's one you should definitely try, you won't be disappointed!
