Product Review: Creed Green Irish Tweed Shave Soap - The Emporium Barber

Product Review: Creed Green Irish Tweed Shave Soap

Creed has been supplying the European elite since the early 1700’s when their fragrances were exclusive only to English royalty and the political elite. Thanks to the evolution of human transportation and manufacturing processes, Creed has now reached the global market.

The brand has maintained its incredibly scrupulous quality inspection process, and the genius behind the Creed fragrance lineup remains in family lines.

This brings us to the Creed Green Irish Tweed Shave Soap & Bowl, a product infused with the elite fragrance of Creeds Irish Tweed fragrance. The idea behind this product was to add a layer of luxury to an otherwise normal household product: the shave soap.

The Shave Soap

Shave soaps have been around for centuries and are still considered to be one of the best products to use for a close shave. The problem is that they often come unscented, or use low quality, synthetic fragrances that end up irritating the skin on the face and produce a clashing aroma with the other products in your grooming routine.

The Creed Irish Tweed fragrance tends to blend seamlessly with the other fragrances you may be using, but offers nothing but sophistication and luxury to its contribution. It wouldn’t make sense to use a cheap shaving soap formula in a product that places the luxurious Creed fragrance at the heart.

This is why Creed has chosen to use the best shaving soap formula they could find. The soap lathers almost instantly, and spreads evenly over the face. The soap provides emulsification of water and oils, which work together to force hydration into the skin, and hair. This allows the blade to slide gracefully across the face, slicing the hairs quickly and without resistance.

The shave soap hydrates and cleans the skin, and allows the elite Creed fragrance to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. The skin will then radiate subtle aromas throughout the day, ready to impress whoever is lucky enough to get close enough to your face to smell it.

Creed Irish Tweed Fragrance

Creeds version uses the real Green Irish Tweed fragrance, which has been tried and tested over the years by some of the most influential people in Europe and across the globe. The fragrance was released in 1985 by Olivier Creed, a sixth-generation in the Creed family line.

The fragrance of the Creed Irish Tweed opens with top notes of iris and lemon verbena, followed up by middle notes of violet leaves and peppermint. The base of this scent tends to linger with notes of sandalwood, and ambergris.

This fragrance balances the sensation of curiosity with tradition. It isn’t too intense that you’ll clear a room, but is unique enough to perk up the nose of anybody walking past. The fragrance resembles the fresh environment of an Irish countryside, with the luxurious touch suitable for the royal family.

After using this soap, your skin will feel soft, and smell absolutely amazing. For best results, follow up with other additions to the Creed Green Irish Tweed lineup like the cologne itself.


Putting it All Together

The final product allows functionality from the premium shave soap blend and gives a subtle, fresh, and luxurious aroma to the skin on your face. To wrap it all up in a beautiful, and easy to use package, the Creed Green Irish Tweed Shave Soap comes in a reusable wooden bowl.

Using your favorite shaving brush, add some water and work up a lather directly in the bowl itself. When finished, simply dump out any leftover water and lather, and put the lid back on the bowl.

The presentation of this shave soap is beautiful and deserves to be left out in the open for all to see.
